Excellent little place, large room with king size bed, kitchenette, shower, spa bath and toilet. It was warm Sue and Gordon are fantastic hosts. Sue even left us baking after servicing the unit. For a weekend away for two it was absolutely great. We are from Hamilton NZ and we highly recommend it.

My wife and I had a night here on the way back from a wedding in Nelson. The welcome from Gordon was warm, friendly and inviting. We were initially a little disappointed with the room - it is a little tired and it doesn't look like much has changed since it was built. It was however spotlessly clean and we... More

This is a lovely place to stay as there are only a few rooms. More like a homestay really, we stayed in room 1, lovely view of the garden and very spacious. Very large bathroom and comfortable bed. The owners live in a beautiful home in front of the accommodation. Gordon was very welcoming and Sue had made some lovely... More

We stayed for a night on our way over to the west coast. Perfect location for exploring the town and the hot springs. Very homely set up with baked goods and chickens. The bed was amazing especially after sleeping in a tent the night before. Our host welcomed us and left us to enjoy the area. Lovely gardens and private... More

Stayed here for the last two nights. Sue is very accomodating. Got to our room and there were fresh eggs laid from the chickens that day and brownies! The room was comfortable and perfect for what we needed. Only a short walk to the town which is perfect. Would definitely stay again!

Pretty gardens but not quite 'Affordable Luxury', as advertised. Friendly hosts, comfy bed and spacious room, but it was pretty tired overall and needed a good vacuum. The bathroom was badly designed and flooded when you used the shower. Nice spa bath though. There was a shelf above the handbasin that caught your head when you cleaned your teeth. More... More

Our family of 5 took 2 adjoining rooms here. Spacious, spotless, the hosts clearly paid attention to detail. Freestanding cottages are surrounded by a lovely, well-manicured garden. So refreshing to get free wifi! Very short walk to thermal pools & town shops.

We had the best motel experience in NZ yet! arrived to freshly baked chocolate brownies, the motel is literally 3 minutes walk from the pools and shops and a huge bathroom with both spa bath and walk-in shower. I had the most fantastic sleep on gorgeous beds and a very quiet room. Sky sport for the rugby, free dvds and... More

The room was lovely, super clean, spacious and pretty! The bathroom was great as well, it was spotless. The complimentary towels to use at Hanmer Springs (just a short walk away) were very welcome as we only had minny travel towels. The lady who welcomed us were super nice and helpful, and the brownies that she left for us were... More
