Stayed here for one night with my partner, 4 year old and our international student. We booked a family room which was perfect for us, each of the kids had their own room which had 2 single beds in each room (they could have each brought a friend!) And we had the double room off the lounge. Both managers were... More

I was one of five women staying one night at the Hanmer Springs Scenic View motel. The view of the mountains was spectacular especially with the dusting of snow this morning. The unit was large, modern, warm and comfortable. Not easy to find one motel that would accomodate all five of us comfortably. The motel is well located near all... More

The manager/owner of the motel was rude and racist. The situation got so bad that we decided to leave a day early as he wont leave our family alone. Another family of ours decided to have some fish and chips with us after swimming in the pool and he made a comment saying "this is not a marae" gosh he... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this Motel. Both experiences were great. Little things like putting the bike stand in front of our unit. Our first stay was in a studio unit but this time it was a family unit. It worked well. This time we had others staying with us and the family unit was great... More

A short 350M walk from the main village, it was a quick trip to the hot pools, with complementary towels. We stayed in the family unit, which was very clean, quiet, warm and comfortable, as well as having great views. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgable about local attractions and places to eat. They have a friendly "motel cat"... More

We arrived late and everything was well arranged. Stood for one night. Noisy AirCon (heat pump they call it here...). Pantry is well equipped. Bright room with good view - especially in the morning. Plenty of car park and good advise about the town from the front desk

We chose to stay here after viewing a few motels in the area and we're so glad we did. The owners have exceptional customer service skills and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The room we stayed in had a private outdoor tub, fantastic! !! The only negative was the shower pressure which we mentioned the... More

The owners of this motel were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. From the moment we arrived they could not do enough for us, from helping parking our support vehicle and trailer to sorting rooms for the 20 odd riders to letting us take over the laundry. The rooms were lovely, especially the honey moon suite!

Nice welcome on arrival. Given towels for hot pools. Had a studio which was spotless with a kitchen having everything you needed. The only let down was the pebbled kitchen bathroom floors very 70s cold to walk on. In a great area a good 5 mins walk to town and pool. Free WFTI
