Good value, good beds, lots of room. Walls a bit thin and could hear people going up the stairs next dooor and talking etc, but fortunately they were not a noisy group so it didn't affect our sleep. Good location, east walk to hot pools.

This is the second time my wife and I spent our weekend at Larchwood Motel. It only took us two hours to drive from Christchurch to Hanmer Springs to enjoy the wonderful countryside lifestyle. The motel was quiet and comfortable around here. The manager was very friendly and helpful, and the price was affordable. My wife and I loved to... More

We now wish we paid the extra $20.00 too. First, the location is good, close to Dog Stream Walk and 5 - 10... More

dirty, run down, untidy surroundings outside, cockroach in cupboard with breakfast bowls, will say bed was com fortable but that would be the only positive thing about the place. Do not stay here because it is cheap! Cheap is not always the best or anything accepatable.

The Larchwood Motel in Hanmer, NZ is a quiet value-priced motel. Clean and with comfortable beds, the management and staff welcomed us. Units have cooking facilities. Not luxurious, but adequate in z central location to the Hanmer Hot Springs complex.
