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.

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
