We booked to stay one night but wished we could have stayed longer! Very clean and well maintained unit with seating on the verandah to enjoy the sunshine and the views. They even provide you with a towel if you decide to visit the hot pools just a couple of minutes walk away (well worth a visit!)

We stayed four nights at the Alpine Garden Motel. Originally Hanmer Springs should only have been a small stop on our South Island round trip, but partly due to the great hospitality of the Alpine Garden Motel we stayed four nights. It is central just walking distance to basically everything in Hanmer Springs, rooms are not the news but they... More

Owners are friendly, helpful and understanding. We had emailed them a couple of days before about us turning up early, and they said no problem with us dropping off our bags and immediately taking the complimentary towels to the Hanmer Springs hot pools. There's also little bath mats as well as the towels which is a great idea to help... More
