We showed up in town without a booking in the early evening so were able to secure a studio with kitchenette at a discount. Glad we didn't pay full price. Room was cold despite it being spring, winter would be brutal without central heating! The bed was squeaky and the same goes for our neighbour's bed. I say this with... More

Beautifully situated in the heart of Hanmer Springs lovely Alpine Lodge Motel. Short walk to town and directly across the road from Thermal resort. The view from our room was outstanding, snow on the mountains peaks.

this is our second stay and there wont be a third! We stayed in a lovely looking one room wooden unit. It cost $185 for our family of 3. So we were all sleeping in the one room i.e. the lounge. We had one tiny noisey fan heater about the size of my outstretched palm. It was -4 degrees! There... More

Lovely big room and spotlessly clean. Good bathroom and linen. Comfy beds. Would recommend. Close to Springs and easy walk to shops and restaurants. Parking at door. June and her husband are delightful people.

There seems to be a difference of opinion as to whether this motel is officially graded as 3.5 or 4.5 star. My vote is for 3.5 It seems to follow U.S.A. motel practice in that while tea and coffee facilities are in the unit, there are no cooking or washing up facilities in the studio unit in which we stayed....

This motel is very clean, quite spacious 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. We would stay here again and would be happy to recommend this motel to anyone staying in... More

We choose this place because of it's closeness to the hot pools. It looks nice from the outside but inside, wow. The shower head was split, did not work properly and was dirty. Dust was on the windowsill, toilet roll holder and light fittings. The carpet in the bedroom/dining area was stained and had cigarette burn marks in it. The... More

The hosts of this complex and extremely helpful and friendly. The motel unit is large, comfortable bed, dining table as well as comfy chairs to relax in. There was a lovely little terrace outside that we could enjoy the sun. The unit was spotlessly clean.

We chose to stay at the motel, as we'd been recommended to visit Hanmer Springs by a friend. It was very well placed in the middle of the town, almost opposite the thermal baths complex. We were made very welcome by the owner, who leant us extra towels to visit the baths. Sadly, the walls of our room could have... More

Alpine Lodge, Hanmer Springs On our trip to Nelson, we stayed at the Alpined Lodge Motel. We liked it so much we stayed there on the way home as well. It is directly opposite the thermal pools, a major reason for stopping over in Hanmer. Parking was uncrowded. Reception was very friendly and welcoming. As we registered, we were given... More
