We stayed for just one night on 17th November.We arrived several hours before check in time and asked if we could leave our car in the car park whilst we visited the nearby hot springs. The welcome was really warm and we were told we could check in immediately. The room was warm and had everything we needed and more!... More

Fabulous location. A short stroll from the Springs, and all the restaurants,but quietly tucked away with lovley views at the back. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The kitchen adequately stocked. The guy who managed the lodges was very friendly and helpful. We booked the BBQ one evening, which he set up for us in the garden with a... More

Lovely motel. Super proximity to pools and town but away from street noise. Appreciated the full kitchen with stove and oven. Was very well equipped. Nice to have outside garden area to sit. Also great DVD selection. Also appreciated the complementary pool towels. Only downside was that the free wifi was terribly slow such that we couldnt use it. But... More

The hosts are very nice and helpful. They accommodated our early check-in, and the hotel provides towels and bathmats for the hot pools. The room was fairly large and had a well supplied kitchen. It was very comfortable overall. They also provide a wide selection of free DVDs to borrow.

Very well equipped and furnished in good position in the town with easy walk to spa and restaurants. The helpful friendly owners provide extra towels for use at the springs. The best motel we stayed in during our 3 week trip to New Zealand.

Great choice for our four-day stay in Hanmer Springs. Easy walk to the hot springs plus shops and restaurants, comfortable small apartment with full kitchen, friendly and helpful hosts, lovely views of the mountains. Our stay has been great.

Hi Lois, Thank you for your review. It was great hosting you and your husband for a few days. Sorry that he caught a cold but the mountain air would have been the perfect medicine for it. Hope to see you again in the future. Regards, Mark More

This is a clean, well equipped, good size lodging just up the street from the spa. It was great for self catering at a reasonable price. The owners were very helpful and the mountain view from the porch was wonderful

Stayed only for one night, but had a good sleep. The motel owner was friendly. The room was clean and spacious, milk was prepared for my stay. The place was quiet. I took the room with a spa bath so had a comfortable bath after hours of driving :) generally a positive experience.
