Wanted something not too expensive with all facilities and this ticked the boxes. Room was clean and lovely fresh sheets on the bed. Greeted by lovely friendly lady on our arrival. My only gripe was the room smelt like cigarette smoke and needs a good airing out. Nice to be greeted with a warm room as the heating was on.... More

Excellent location for family , the unit is clean and seems that they complete all hygiene expected in the entire unit. The small kitchen so very helpful for out young one. The unit is separate so that you have your own privacy and enjoyment without disturbing others. Only one suggestion would be - ON your heaters prior the arrival ,... More

I stayed on the recommendation of my cousin who frequently has stayed with her extended family and appreciated the excellent friendly service and the fire when heaters were not working effectively. Hamner is cold in winter it was appreciated that the heaters were on to warm the rooms before we arrived. Having a separate bedroom meant I could sleep comfortably... More

Viewed this motel on trip adviser and was expecting attractive accommodation with views. Not to be but was warmly welcomed. Very basic and so far can hear neighbours through wall plus lots of banging. Clean but strong smell of disinfectant on arrival. I opened unit up and went for long walk. Motel is away from Main Street and within walking... More

Great for families, very quiet and peaceful, close to town center and walking track. Friendly staff, helped/ solved our own booking mistake. The unit had full kitchen facilities and was spotlessly clean.

The owners were just wonderful, organised everything for us including going out of their way to look up horse rides for me. The rooms were just perfect, so cosy neat and had everything we needed. We had the cabins up the back and they were so quiet it was bliss.

Lovely accommodating couple running the motel. Allowed us early access which was great. Everything you could need in terms of kitchen bathroom etc. Opportunity to do washing too which was a bonus. Close to centre, forest walks and springs but sufficiently far away to not be noisy

It's located a little out of the village, a 5-10 minute walk, but I liked this. Room was very comfortable and a nice size, with everything we needed. Checked in early and quick, and upgraded to a nicer room than paid for.

Not a fancy motel but very comfortable and warm when it was very cold outside! It had everything you could need with a nice bathroom and nice little kitchen. Very friendly and helpful staff- even allowed me to change my booking (later than their rules allowed) due family emergency. Very welcoming and helpful on arrival too. Very reasonable price. Will...

We loved our room at the Forest Peak Motel. It was huge, clean and quiet. The room's parking space was right outside our door and the outdoor lights had motion detectors. We were loaned towels for the hot pools. The motel is several blocks from the downtown area but it is definitely walkable. It is also close to a walking... More
