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...

clean room, spacious, well appointed rooms. Stayed 2 nights after a long drive through Molesworth. Just over the road from the hot pools, wander over wrapped in a towel (supplied by motel) . Close to town and wonderful restaurants

I choose this property for it's proximity to the Hot Springs. It is a small property; within walking distance of the restaurants/shops; the rooms spacious and clean; the decorations homely (not that that took away from our experience). Our host was welcoming and friendly. Towels were supplied to take to the Hot Springs. A very pleasant stay and very good... More

Spent a night recently here, it was just what we needed, quiete, and just across the road from the hot pools, fantastic service. The room we had was huge and the bathroom was massive. We totally enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

We had a very nice stay Glenalvon Lodge. Nice clean rooms. Friendly staff. Great location in walking distance of the Hanmer Hot Springs and the restaurants. We got towels to use for the springs. All in all nice.

Just returned from a last minute one night stay here. We were given an excellent price even though we just turned up and hadn't booked in advance. We were travelling with our toddler and the queen sized bed seemed larger than normal, comfortably fit all 3 of us in it. It was lovely to have the sitting area as we... More

This motel is right opposite the hot pools and central to all the pubs etc. The room was huge one of the biggest we had. The only problem I had was no wifi in the room we had which I think was number 5 but when we told the lady on reception she already knew about it so check when... More

Opposite the hot pools, and everything on your doorstep although rooms still very quiet. The owners are fantastic and can't do enough for you. They will give you advice on restaurants, and make you feel incredibly welcome.
