Very clean and convenient motel. Comfortable beds. Pleasant lady on reception and best of all very close to the hot pools and restaurants. Great to be able to walk to both. Disappointed to find that coffee plunger provided but no plunger coffee. Just a minor thing but I love my plunger coffee!

We stayed here for night on the drive up to the north coast. Owners are very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Rooms are a little dated but clean and well equipped. Hammer springs itself is a nice town to spend a day in but not a lot more.

After a long drive from Punakaiki, we were very lucky that there was a room available for us. Other motels nearby already have no vacancies. We took the last room and we were really glad that it was within our budget. We did not book in advance as Hanmer springs was a last minute decision to stop for a night... More

The owner was friendly and the unit very clean but it was overpriced for something so dated: ancient kitchen with a two ring hot plate and just one plug point, old dragon furniture and nylon carpet, mismatched 70s Lino in the poky bathroom, soggy beds. The tiny TV was new though - volume was good though as we could hear... More

Right from my initial telephone call to make the booking, I was impressed by the friendly manner of the owner. Although our stay coincided with atrocious weather, our unit was lovely and warm with two heaters supplied. As other guests have commented, our unit was also a little bit dated but adequately furnished, and very clean. The location is perfect... More

Great close location to the Pools and town. Older motel and slightly dated but super clean and lovely hosts, even offered pool towels. Lovely grounds and great area for kids...has a pool for summer time too. Very warm inside the unit and the beds have electric blankets and gorgeous warm bedding I hate to get out of in the morning.... More

Stayed here in June for 1 night. The room had everything we needed and was definitely value for money. Location was great, with just a short stroll to the hot pools! Two spare towels were also provided for the hot pools which was very handy. Judy was welcoming and very friendly - her husband also! We awoke the following morning... More

Beautiful quiet location off the main road but close to everything. Hosts lovely enough to provide is with extra towels for the hot pools, and keep them the day we checked out, dropping them back off after lunch on our way out of town. We had a 2 bedroom unit, very spacious. Kitchen is well appointed with full 4burner stove... More

Judy and her staff are friendly and welcoming. The unit is clean and warm and perfect for me as a solo traveller. Car Parking is secure. There would be lots for kids to do in summer....right now it's all covered in snow! Booked online and everything was ready to go when I got here. Happy customer
