Nice rooms, friendly staff, perfect location close to the pools. But nothing special. The Wifi doesn't work reliable. So it wasn't possible to use the 2 hours free Wifi. By the way, free unlimited Wifi should be a matter of course - especially with regard to the ambitious rates.

Large room with comfortable large double. We chose a disability room (downstairs) when we booked and got the one closest to the road but no road noise problems. It meant that we had windows on 2 sides plus the entry plus a lovely secluded patio. Bathroom had a large spa bath, a bonus. Newspaper delivered free each morning. WiFi -... More

We stayed for two nights in a two bedroom unit. Everything was great. Rooms were large and well set out. All was very clean. It was very quiet with minimal noise at all. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. An easy walk everywhere. Would highly recommend.

Stayed for 1 night in December. Clean and tidy rooms. They were able to accommodate 2 adults and 4 children in one unit. Short walk to Hanmer Pools. There was a slight muck up with the online booking which was resolved quickly without any issues. Would recommend to others.

I stayed with my girlfriend for just one night while on our way to Golden Bay. The motel was clean and comfortable, only a short easy walk to the hot pools and shops/restaurants .

A fantastic unit with great proportions, warm and spacious with a fantastic spa bath. A lovely greeting on arrival and so close to town and the pools. Highly recommend. The cheeseboard option is fantastic. Our room was nice and quiet despite being on the road end double glazing keeps the noise out and kept the room lovely and warm.

A welcome 'reminiscent of what NZ was once known for, keep it up, the room very nice, and immaculate, and as a past owner of a five star motel I am very particular. Decor lovely, the management both professional and pleasant. As a local new zealander traveling I like to think that they want me to return, and I shall.... More

After a little blip with our reservation (no fault of Tussock Peak Motor Lodge, but the booking website we used) we were looked after so well. Thank you so much. It made my trip with my mother and sister who were visiting from the UK perfect! Thanks again, Ill definitely be back!

Have stayed before, & right from booking through to leaving was a great experience. Freezing cold weather & the heating in our room had been turned on. Helpful at reception, dvds to watch. Really cosy winter stay, super.
