Perfect family acomodation with everything we needed, and being right over the road from the hot pools is a perfect place to stay. Perhaps a little dated and in need of an upgrade. We have stayed here many times and keep coming back. Lovely helpful owners.

Have been to Hanmer a few times now have always looked for somewhere else to stay after the places we have stayed at until now! We have found our place to stay!! We arrived and had the nicest lady greet us and show us to our room and showed us how everything worked. Such a nice clean place to stay... More

Friendly kiwi hospitality combined with awesome-ness of allowing pets to stay (with prior approval). Nice large unit with spa bath, separate twin room for the kids and queen bed in main large living area. All beds with electric blankets. Great quality basic motel units, and so close to everything. Have now stayed twice and will do so again.

Pleasant welcome, handy to hot pools, good restaurant next door. Negatives: two lights not working in bathroom, shower door catches badly when door is opened, no kitchen sink so had to wash dishes in the bathroom, tree branches overhanging the unit scraped and rattled against the iron roof throughout the night - very disturbing.

We were warmly welcomed. Very comfortable and clean room conveniently located in close proximity to the hot pools. Provided with towels for the hot pools. All amenities provided. Would highly recommend for a pleasant stay.

We were made very welcome by Dale and were shown to our room which was a good size with a fridge, kettle & microwave, all very modern and clean. The motel was convenient for the thermal baths and the small town with it's varied restaurants and bars (all about 5 minutes walk). The only negative was that there was no... More

We loved this motel. Very comfortable, large room and a few minutes from the hot pools and restaurants. Service was good and very helpful. Very good heating as it can get very cold in Hanmer Springs and nice to have heated towel rails which are often missing in motels.

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
