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....

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 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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Alpine Lodge Motel is a charming motel located in the heart of the alpine village and set in beautifully maintained gardens. With our fabulous location, it is an easy stroll to all the fine shops, cafes, bars and restaurants that Hanmer Springs has to offer, as well as a quick hop across the road to the famous Thermal Pools! We are renowned for our impressive round tower and suites with very unique super-king sized ROUND BEDS. Also, with our great selection of studios, chalets, family units and luxury suites, we remain a very popular choice with all of our visitors. All of our units are serviced daily, our car park is private from the road and we have 5 SKY Channels and yes, 2 of them are sports channels so you won’t miss that crucial match! Hanmer Springs has a lot to offer, starting with the Thermal Pools, horse riding, walking and mountain bike tracks (many tracks from beginner to advanced accessible from the end of our street), mini golf, a fun maze, fishing and skiing. For the more adventurous of you there’s Thrillseekers which can provide bungy jumping, jet boating, white water rafting and quad biking to name a few, all of which you can book from our reception. For those who want to relax and unwind, grab a DVD from reception and chill out in your room. With 24 units we can easily accommodate from large groups to people traveling alone, families to special occasions, we have something for everyone! Whatever you are looking for, Alpine Lodge Motel can provide. We look forward to seeing you soon! Your Friendly Hosts: Ash and Emma. ... more   less
