“Great Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Fantastic place to stay, could not be more central to everything in Hanmer. Host were friendly and very helpful, they have a great nothing is a problem attitude. This would be the best place that I have stayed at in Hanmer.

Room Tip: Ring them direct, better price than using web booking sites

Glenalvon was recommended to us by a Nelson Music store owner who we meet by chance a few days earlier. He was spot on with his description of this little piece of paradise. All most straight across from the springs, two minutes’ walk could not have been better.
The unit was spacious, clean and warm. Yes it didn’t have cooking facilities but for us, the tea and coffee making was all we needed. The hosts made us very welcome from the very start and could not have done enough for their guests, plenty of advice and recommendations.
The office and the owners accommodation are part of the fascinating history of Hanmer Springs being part of the servicemen’s hospital across the road along with the restaurant next door, which on the owners suggestion we had dinner. Great meal by a local chef.
A delightful place to come for a week, or two, we would love to come back.

Very good place to stay, plenty space in a great room. The Shower and toilet looks not the newest, the Water was less in the shower. We think the Bathroom looks so extreme different to the very good ambience from the Motel and the rooms.
No Kitchen, possible is only to made a Tee or Coffee. :-(
Very nice and friendly Manager. :-))

Location is ideal being opposite the pools and walking distance to restaurants. Rooms are away from the road so are quiet. Staff very helpful. Rooms a little tired but excellent value for money.

We would stay here again.
