Tidy units, well serviced, hosts friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Grandchildren loved playing on swings and trampoline. Close to pools and we were given towels for pools. Next time we are in Hanmer we will be back to stay

Lovely high raked ceilings with clerestory windows giving an impression of even greater room, though the unit is very spacious indeed. Nicely decorated. Quality utensils in the kitchen, which is well-fitted out. Very hot water. Good outlook to the garden, mountains and pool and very handy to shops and restaurants. Owners super-helpful and friendly and we were reluctant to leave... More

Stayed two nights, a different unit each night, slept well in very comfortable beds. It was a very busy weekend with the No Vacancy sign out, (had booked ahead) No problem with noise from other units. Close and handy, a short walk around the corner to the hot pools, restaurants, shops, mini golf. Proprietors are doing a wonderful job, slowly,... More

Lovely quiet street, such a short stroll to the village and Hot Pools. Units are slightly dated in decor, but the cleanliness and friendliness of the owners/hosts far outweighs this. Would certainly stay at Spa Lodge in the future. Thank you Judy and Harry.

We got woken up at 6am on Sunday morning with the occupants next door and above us talking/flushing toliet/shower running. I would rather may an extra $20 and stay somewhere modern and quiet. Clean but very dated for the $$

We read the reviews before we booked but nothing quite prepares you for the 70's decor! The apartment was scrupulously clean and the owners very helpful and friendly. The big minus to this place was the fact that the walls are very thin and you can hear everything from next door. We had a two bedroom apartment upstairs and were... More

Stayed at this motel for 5 nights recently. The location is absolutely spot on being about a 2 minute walk to the village. The units are older style but incredibly clean and have everything you need. You have access to the laundry at $2 per load which is handy when staying longer. The swimming pool was out of action when... More

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.
