A bit dated in the decor department, but scrupulously clean and everything you need. Roomy lounge, with sparse furniture. The owner is very helpful.. All Hanmer's attractions are a short walk away, and you are not in the hustle and bustle of the main shopping and pools precinct.

After arriving to check in, the man at the counter wasn't very welcoming, anyway as I was sorting out part payment (as had booked one night on line and needed to pay for the second night) I mentioned that it said they had free wifi, the mans response was yea we do but don't use it too much!!!

Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that you didn't feel that the service was very good my husband is usually very accommodating and welcoming. Sofa beds have thinner mattresses to enable them to be folded away during the day they aren't designed for people that have bad backs, maybe a good option would of been to book one... More

What a lovely spot within walking distance to the shops and the thermal pools. The rooms are immaculate and the owners are very friendly. Highly recommend this motel as we loved our stay. Great value rooms and on site laundry is very handy. You can also get a lovely view of the surrounding mountains when the weather is clear enough.

We stayed for 1 night in Hanmer Springs. Beautifully clean but a bit dated, it was a very cold night but the air con worked excellent we were warm & toasty. Walking distance to hot pools & restaurants. The gentleman on reception was pleasant & made us feel welcome.

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
