This being our first visit to the area we found the Hosts to be helpful and extremely friendly. The room was clean and comfortable with good kitchen and facilities. We would recommend... More

Located in between the mountains and centenary trees, this hotel is an excellent choice for those who are looking for comfort and peace. The infrastructure is excellent and it´s very close to the pools. The staff is very welcoming and friendly.

Our room was small but quiet and comfortable with a balcony overlooking the local area. It was close to the thermal springs and restaurants (within walking distance) the laundry proved very useful also.

This place was excellent for its welcome, cleanliness, thoughtful fitting out with attention to every small details, peaceful yet central location for the thermal springs, restaurants etc, but most of all it was excellent for its people.

This was an awesome place to stay handy to all food shops and the beautiful Hamner Springs. The owners were delightful and nothing was an issue for them to help out. The young lady I spoke to when we were runny late could not do enough for us 10/10 as far as we are concerned. Owen & Dianne Barlow North... More

Very clean, comfortable Motel. Customer service is excellent. Lots of little touches to really make staying a pleasure: free laundry facilities, amazing collection of free to borrow DVDs, towels for the Hot Springs. Would highly recommend that anyone visiting Hamner stays here. We stayed in 12 different places during our visit to NZ and this is defiantly in the top... More

One of the most professionally run motels I've used, very friendly and efficient. I left my iPhone charger in Christchurch and the managers lent me one of their own for the two days I was there! Nicely situated, very easy walk into the town, everything clean and tidy, I'll definitely be staying there again if I'm in Hanmer Springs.

Booked this motel as part of a package deal and was very impressed. Service was fantastic :) We didn't arrive until 11pm, and our room was unlocked with the heater and lights on (it was july). Lovely rooms nice and close to everything you need.

We had a very peaceful one night stay in a 2 bedroom unit. 3 Adults. The unit was clean, modern and spacious. Situated in a quiet street and a short walk to the centre. The welcome was very friendly. Will be recommending this place to others.
