Stayed here for one night with my girlfriend. Arrived early and wanted to see if we could leave our luggage behind the desk but we're told we could just leave the car in the car bays. Upon check-in, the lady (who I assume was the owner) was nice but kept getting distracted while taking us to our room, helped another...

Most people are glad that they can leave their cars and luggage safely in the covered car parks if they arrive early, as it saves any parking troubles in town especially when town is busy and you don't have to unpack your car twice. Sorry your felt your room was dusty but I can assure you it is dusted daily...

Spa Lodge is a typical example if an NZ motel built in the early 80 and hasn't been updated in the intervening period. It was clean and tidy but dated. Location is good - 1 minute walk to town and the hot springs. And on a side street with minimal traffic.

Sorry you thought the pool would be open, it is only open in the Summer time usually when school holidays start as before this the air and water temperature is far to cold. Unless November is unusually hot which is wasn't this year as we still were getting snow on the hills around, the pool is closed until the Xmas...

There is a lot of accomodation in Hamner Springs and as I think that you are only to sleep in a motel, for me, my choice is mainly based on price and if you dont want to pay to much, you expects a little less quality. So I was not expecting a very flash room. The room was clean and...

This is an older property so don't expect the shiny bathroom etc. you might get in a more modern property. What you do get, however, is a clean, spacious room with a nice, sunny outlook, free Wi Fi, friendly, helpful staff and a place to stay that is quiet yet right in the middle of the township.

This was a really well located motel. Like everyone says it is an older motel but that didn't worry us as was very clean. 2min walk to hot pools and town and great Asian takeaways across the road. Was quiet and had a great sleep.

We stayed here for 2x 1 night stays. The first night we arranged a late check in and on arrival light and heaters were on which was welcoming. The units are old but were very clean and had great showers. Comfortable beds. Very good location being 300m each from hot pools and forest. Have stay here previously and will again.
