Spacious with king bed and plenty of room to spare. Well lit and well equipped. Sky tv and free wifi. Service was prompt and helpful and very friendly. Short walk to town under 5mins. Excellent place to stay.

This is an ideal drive-in motel place to stay in Hanmer Springs. Easy to find on the road into town. Very near the thermal baths and the spa, and a short walk to shops and access to the gentle climbing walking trails. The service from the young couple owners is very pleasant, helpful and unassuming. Nothing seems too much trouble.... More

A fantastic location and comfortable room. Plenty of space. Our son could hire a mountain bike so he could ride with Dad and the staff were very helpful. Although there isn't a laundry on site, we found one we could use nearby and the staff lent us a clothes horse / rack to dry our clothes. We had been camping... More

It is our first time staying at the motel and it is definitely somewhere that we would return to stay at again. We arrived at Hamner springs in the late afternoon without booking and were fortunate enough to be given a room at this place for a reasonably cheap price of $130ish (3 people). The room was quite spacious with... More

We booked a studio motel room at the last minute and were delighted when we arrived to find a spacious and immaculate room. It is also right in the town centre but quiet and set back. Dale was so friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay again and highly recommend if you are staying in Hanmer Springs.

We have stayed here at the Glenalvon Lodge Motel, Hanmer Springs before, and were very happy with the rooms. Naturally we made a bee line straight to this place when we drove into the village. Greeting us were Dale and Chanel with their children. It was like meeting old friends again. The last time we were here was in Sep... More

I loved our one night stay here – the motel was perfect for two people needing separate beds and plenty of space. It ticked all my boxes; it was clean, comfortable and most importantly QUIET. We were in #8, a unit near the end of the complex with easy-in-easy-out parking. The bed was entirely too soft for my tastes, but... More

We stay in Hanmer every couple of months and we would revisit Glenalvon Lodge Motels as we were impressed with the place. Its quiet , a short waddle to the local eateries and the hot pools are ~ 2 mins across the road. Tidy and well presented facilities.

It was very clean and the room was huge! Good location right by the thermal springs and only a two minute walk to the village. Add free coffee, tea and towels you can take to the springs and this place is a winner!
