We had a very nice stay, comfy bed and clean room. Really close to the town and walking distance of the hot pools, The owners were helpful pointing out the mountain bike tracks and a good coffee spot.

Very nice room, great shower and a warm room. Comfy bed and nice teas and things. Was close to the village, and walking distance of the thermal pools (also provided towels for the pools). The owner was very helpful the next morning, explaining where we needed to go to head for Picton, and also hand delivered the morning paper.

Good location, and catered for our needs. Close to the spa pools and Main Street. There is also a good 50min walk around Hanmer Springs through the town and along dog stream walk - well worth taking the time to get up early! Make sure you buy a two day pass for the spa including the water slides which are... More

We stayed here with another couple and so booked a two bedroom unit. We found it a quiet, cosy motel, clean and tidy, and our unit had a well appointed kitchen and a good bathroom and shower. The lock on the latter was a little tricky to use but we managed. All the beds were very comfortable. There was sufficient... More

Very nice motel. Would go back. Nice and quiet, very friendly staff. The pools in Hanmer Springs are fantastic. We wished we were staying longer. Would recommend this motel. Very close to restaurants and all amenities.. We will be back to visit again.
