We took a quick trip up to Hanmer Springs from Christchurch and had planned to use our campervan. However we spotted the special deal sign and called in and were rewarded with a lovely spacious two bed unit for the three of us. Service was first class with consideration given to all aspects of our stay, including towels to use... More

If you want a place that is super clean, spacious with very friendly helpful hosts...then this is the place to be. We went for 3 nights - 4 girls (annual cousin get together). I was surprised at the peacefulness of our room ( as we were right next to the office)...Easy walking distance to the pools...loved the fab plunge pot... More

We made a last minute booking on the day of our arrival. We managed to secure a Spa Bath room here which despite being small, was exactly what we were after. Lovely room, nicely decorated and large bathroom with spa bath. Owner provided towels for Hot Pools and recommended we go later to avoid all the children. This motel appeared... More

We stayed two nights with our two children. The 2 bedroom unit met our needs perfectly and was warm, exceptionally clean and had great bedding. What made the experience so much better were the warm and welcoming hosts and staff. Nothing was a problem and it's a delight to stay somewhere where even the staff servicing the rooms give you...

Arrived on a very wet night to find the room cozy and warm, as the owners had kindly put the heat pumps on. Fantastic accommodation, beds really comfortable and units have everything you need. Highly recommend this motel. We will definitely stay again when in Hanmer Springs.

Owners were friendly and helpful. Place was very clean. Bathroom floor was a bit hard on your feet. Good location near the spa. Good value for money and would recommend to fellow travellers, friendly cat to greet you.

Way above any other motel in Hanmer Springs & we've stayed at many over the past 15 years. Yes, a bit pricy, but the value is there; every detail is well thought out & beautifully executed. All amenities are first class.

We found this delightful motel by chance and what a pleasant surprise awaited us, well appointed rooms with everything one could want with lovely homely touches, real coffee and wonderful views.We loved the little cat door stop in the bathroom. Our hosts were more than helpful and went beyond the call of duty, we will back! J Hartley Palmerston North

Everything and more one could want. The hosts Jane and Richard were very helpful and friendly.... above and beyond the call of duty. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely return.
