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!

Decides to go to Hanmer for the night and found this wonderful little place. We rang ahead and informed them we might be a little late. When we arrived our hosts had the heating on and the place toasty warm. Clean and tidy too. Will be back soon! Highly recommended.

This motel is very handy to the pools, shops and eateries - but is also away from the noise. Our unit was very clean and tidy - a little dated and with a ridiculously small a TV. The shower's pressure was not very good, but having electric blankets was a nice touch. Tissues in the room would have been appreciated.... More

What a great small Motel. Peaceful and quiet yet right in the centre of Hanmer Springs only five minutes from the pools. We found the room clean and tidy and quite comfortable to relax in, very welcoming and warm. The two reasons I didn't give it a perfect score was because of a small 21" TV and pillows thaat were...
