This motel is very conveniently located just off the main street and close to the pools. It is older style but very well maintained, clean and comfortable. Stayed in a 2 bedroom villa. Compared with other motels in the area, it was quite spacious with room for a table and full size sofa and chairs in living area. Nice private... More

It doesn't give a great first impression but if you don't care too much about the 1970's decor, the rooms are tidy and clean. Our family room had 2 good rooms and a nice front garden where we could hang wet gear in the sun after hours and hours of swimming at the hot pools located a 2 min walk... More

This motel was close to the hot springs pool and spa . Rooms were comfortable but the complex is due for a major overhaul next year . Easy walk to the shopping centre and booking office for amusements .

The units were great reasonably large with two bedrooms and a nice garden. The units had everything you needed. They were very central close to the hot pools but also quiet. Good value as well. Would have been nice fro 12 check out not 10.

You couldn't find a better location for this motel. Good price. Easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and pools. Units are a bit tired looking and could do with some maintenance. Friendly, helpful hosts

Booked this place originally because it was one of very few two room accommodation options we could find, and definitely the most economical. There is nothing flashy or posh about this motel but it was comfortable, warm and the kit contained everything we could possibly need. Also found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Excellent location too -... More

Traveling in March numerous friends told us to book accommodation as we arrived. This was a terrible suggestion as everywhere we went was pretty much booked out. Hanmer springs was one of the worst. All we saw were no vacancy signs and from memory it was a weekend. Silly us! Hanmer resort hotel had one room left when we enquired... More
