This is the second time we have stayed here and I think this is a very nice motel, plenty of room modern decor the only gripe would be the bed was a little hard. It is good value for your money lovely outlook and close to the pools. I woukd recommend this

It started with a warm welcome at reception ...went in hoping to leave our luggage somewhere until our pamper spa started and were told our room was ready and we could go in early (2 hrs) of which we were really appreciative of. Free WiFi and DVD's and complimentary "real" milk was also a nice touch. Bedding was lovely and... More

Kaikoura to Golden Bay to much for one day and be able to take in the magnificent sights, so best place to stop? I asked Paul Carberry of New Zealand in Depth and straight back came the answer I know just the place in Hanmer Springs and yet again he delivered! Right on the main street, opposite the springs, and... More

Just one night here in Hanmer Springs. Very comfortable upstairs unit. Close to town for shopping and dinner out. Just a few minutes walk. Everything you needed. We would certainly stay again. Thanks.

We stayed one night and pretty impressed with the motor lodge. it has great location, within walking distance to the thermal pool, the rooms new and tidy with nice modern colour, very comfortable setting, provided all SKY channels. We stayed at a 2 bedroom unit (as they didn't have any 1 bedroom unit) which is a bit costly for $... More

Our only regret about staying at the Tussock Peak is that it wasn't for an extra couple of days! Our welcome was friendly and informative, the rooms are immaculately clean and well equipped, the location is perfect and the beds are comfy! We also took up the $50 wine and cheese offer which was Divine!

What a great hotel, we called in on the off chance of a room Mon 23rd December and stayed one night, Julie was great in checking us in, great room with a small courtyard was fantastic. Spotlessly clean, well laid out rooms for 2 people.. Located opposite a beautiful park that runs through the town on the main strip, you... More

If you are lucky enough to meet Lisa, you will have a perfect experience from start to finish. The motel is lovely. It's immaculately clean. It's nice. It's comfortable. It's nestled right in town... you can walk to the pools, the shops, etc. And the host? She really couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Thank you Tussock Peak Motor Lodge.... More

This brilliantly positioned motel right in the heart of the village was the ideal spot for us to spend two nights on our weekend away. Our spotlessly clean, nicely decorated spa suite had everything we needed and more. The staff there are very friendly and happy to help with any ideas for activities or answer any questions you may have.... More

A utilitarian exterior conceals well-appointed, well maintained and spotlessly clean units. Stayed one night and found the accommodation well situated in the High Street within walking distance of the Pool and cafes. Private balconies add a nice touch to that twilight glass of wine. Only constructive critisicisms would be the fabric headboards (a pet hate) scatter cushions on the bed... More
