We stayed here for two nights in August - a couple of cold winters days. The motel is fairly dated but it is warm, clean and comfortable and for Hamner Springs the price was OK. It is 10 minutes walk into town and to the thermal pools. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The only negative is the common... More

Stayed for one night only and was pleased to leave. The location in Hanmer is fine however the interior and furnishings of the rooms desperately needs updating. The tired and dated appearance was quite depressing.

GFour of us stayed here in April in Chalet 3 & 4, this accommodation is so inviting, very clean and well equipped, so relaxing, the customer service is outstanding, Just a short walk to the town centre and hot springs. We all highly recommend this quaint accommodation, would love to see it when there is snow around.

Super cosy chalet! Good position, very clean room, nice view, All the facilities inside, kind owners! We hope to visit the place again (maybe during the winter with the snow outside)! Valeria and Giovanni

If you are looking for a "downtown" place to stay this is not for you. But if you want space for three adults with kitchen facilities then this is great. It is only 5 minute drive into town. It is quiet and the view from the kitchen window is spectacular. Wonderful, friendly hosts.

We had to change our dates last minute and the staff were very accommodating. We experienced excellent service from the staff and a marvelously prepared room. Very warm rooms and all the amenities were provided. Cant wait to stay there again!

Really blissful to return and experience chalet No.3 for the first time. This is in a perfect setting and so private. A most comfortable two nights, really clean and fresh and such an improvement on a few years back. So close to a range of forest walks which are therapy in themselves. A lovely welcome from hard-working Elsie. Probably the... More

Even when we first booked, the staff suggested a different type of rioom so that we could have more room to fit a travel cot in. Their recommendation was spot on. Stayed here between Christmas and New Year in pretty poor weather conditions, but the staff couldn't have been more friendly - arranging toys for our children and making them... More

We stayed for one night at Forest Peak and loved it. We had the two bedroom family unit (number 7). It was spotlessly clean - the shower and fridge seemed brand new, the sheets were crisp and well laundered and the unit had everything we needed. Our kids loved the trampoline, swing and slide, and the owner was very friendly... More

We had the best experience with the staff, they are unbeatable. They went above and beyond expectations. They also helped us with bookings for another location and we shall be coming back. Great village and the springs were great.
