This is an older motel in a very quiet area of Hanmer. It suited our purposes perfectly. We were just staying a night. The bed was comfortable, the shower excellent, it was clean and quiet. Its not a flash place, but the price reflects that. I rated it very good overall,not as an indication of the age, but for value... More

Yes, the price is right...but that is about it. Very dated. The Queen bedroom (which was actually a full bed and a twin bed) is located up a flight of stairs. The small - not so clean - bathroom is on the first floor. you get the picture. No close to town or the Springs. Pay a little more...you won't... More

We stayed here very recently for 2 nights at the tail end of our West Coast trip. Motel is a bit outdated but fairly spacious for 2 people. Bathroom tiny but clean, kitchen had full facilities which is great when self-catering. The owner talked about the pool in response to an earlier post on here....well it still hasn't been drained...

We needed a short break and booked the room at the last minute. The room was larger than we expected. There was no couch or easy chair although the dining chairs were comfortable. There were no towels but these were provided as soon as I asked. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable and the double was smaller than we had expected... More

. . . tucked away behind another motel which blocks the noise yet only a two-minute walk from "downtown". Add that to the friendliest and most helpful service (owner-operated) imaginable to make for a great stay in Hanmer!

This motel is clean, quiet and reasonably priced. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. The position of the motel is situated only a few minutes walk from the thermal pools and places to eat. Very happy with our experience. Off main road and next to a love park and a lot of walking tracks in the forest. We... More
