Stayed here for one night, 4 adults and 2 kids. The 2bed apartment was very clean and the king bed very comfortable, kids said the pull out sofa bed wasn't though. The kids loved the pool. It advertises free wifi however from the room we couldn't even connect to it. Certain spots in the car park we could connect. Great... More

Thank you for your review, sorry about the wifi as we had the technician in to fix it the week before as it had somehow come off line but unfortunately he had only turned back on the one in office and forgot the outside aerial but this has since been fixed.

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

Hi Sharon We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your night stay with us, unfortunately we are unable to do anything regarding people outside on the balcony in the early hours talking as sound travels very easily though windows. We are gradually updating all the units but as you will appreciate this all takes time and money. Regards Judy &... 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.

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.

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.
