We go to Hanmer alot and as such, have stayed in few different locations. This motel, as with all in Hanmer was a great place to stay. Let's start with the staff. As always brilliant, friendly and informative, this is standard for Hanmer. Now the motel itself. Is a short hop to the pools.The rooms have 70/80's feel/decor. They are... More

A friend and I have just stayed at Spa Lodge last night and with Hanmer Springs being very busy at this time of year we were lucky to get somewhere to stay and were concerned that being an older motel we might be roughing it a bit... But.. I would return back here anytime rather than some modern motel with... More

Centrally located , near the water park. There was a guest laundry, with a clothes line as well as a dryer and a portable clothes airer. There is a pool. Aircon would have been nice, but there was a pedestal fan. Had great water pressure in the shower.

Great location, only a short walk to thermal pools and spa, restaurants, cafes and corner store. The managers/owners are also very friendly and accomodating, leant us towels for the thermal pools so we didnt have to pay for them there and free wifi.

Because I was working in the mornings we stayed a full week and we truly enjoyed our stay. We were able to park our car when we checked in and never used it again until we left. We walked everywhere. We were close to the hot pools, shops, and the great collection of trails along the river.

stayed for one night after a busy day of activities in hanmer, studio was clean, spacious and well equipped for self catering, its ideally located for the spa pools and for everything that hanmer offers. parking and a safe place to keep push bikes is available which is great. the owners were also very friendly and helpful.

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
