Our family stayed here for a night on the 30th of March 2014. We were most impressed from the reception we received whilst booking over the phone and when we arrived to check in. The motel was also easy to find. We stayed in a Two Bedroom Unit which was very well equipped and very spacious inside and out. As... More

I agree it is an older style motel and the décor is dated, but this also means that the units are spacious unlike the tiny units in some modern motels where we have stayed. We have holidayed in the family units, two bedroom units and this time a studio unit and always found them clean and well equipped. The motel... More

My husband and I stayed in Hanmer Springs for two nights on our 17 day South Island trip. After lots of research, I chose Hanmer Resort Motel for its central location and I'M SO GLAD I DID. Even though it's a bit shabby, but still clean, it is one of the closest accommodation places in town and very good value... More

Place is not 5 star but excellent value for $$ if on a budget. Service great & staff friendly, clean although a little dated. Central location with only short walk to town centre, restaurants and thermal springs. Only downside, heating did not work and wifi slower than dial up.

We were booked through an agency and expected 4 star from what we were told, what we found was polar opposite. Old, rundown, unclean accommodation with no heating upstairs in winter. This motel requires a massive amount or work to bring it up to par.

These motels aren't the flashiest motels in the world but for the price they represent very good value for money. They are clean and tidy and had everything we required including a playground for the children. They are a very short walk (about 50m) to the shops and restaurants and maybe 100m to the hot pools. Would highly recommend.

stayed here for a night on our roundtrip south. Best location in town, only a very short walk to hot springs. Very friendly staff and free WiFi too which was a bonus. Town only a short walk away too. Price of rooms was very cheap too.

5th stop on our roadtrip. went to the i-site as we had been all through our trip and were told to go to the hotel and ask for ourselves! Not really a hardship but a lot less service than we had received at all the other i-sites. Took some time to get some attention at the reception then the owner... More
