Me and my partner came for a relaxing night away from the city. The room was great, better than expected and spotless! There was sky tv, internet, a massive king bed fitted with electric blankets and also a spa bath. I couldn't fault any aspect of this place & we would definitely return again. This would be our first choice... More

We booked the Hanmer Springs Spa Pamper Package which included a night at Tussock Peak Motor Lodge. We felt extremely welcomed and very well looked after, the room was beautiful, comfortable, well stocked and very close to the spa. Exceeded expectations and would definitely stay here again. Bonus points for having complementary Milo as well!

We stayed here for 3 nights. Lovely little units. Did not like having NO outside light out on the courtyard. You can't see anything. Only gives 2 towels per day unless you ask. You have to hire towels to go to the Hot pools which I am sure the website says free hire. You have no sink in the unit... More

Hi there, we're the new owners as of 1 week ago. We're glad you liked the unit you stayed in. We now offer free pool towels and unlimited WiFi. There are 2 units out of the 14 which do not have a sink, something we are looking into. In the meantime, anyone staying in these units, we do your dishes... More

Had an overnight stay here last night. Nice property, nice décor, nicely located and at the average (expensive) Hanmer Saturday night rate. Didn't therefore find it remotely acceptable to have inefficient and sometimes non existent heating in the middle of winter.... called down to reception for assistance with the cheap, nasty and overly complex Goldair wall heater. the person in...

Thanks for your feedback on the heater. We are new owners as of 1 week ago and I know exactly which heater you are talking about... I had a tough time figuring it out this week but now I believe it works fine. If it ever becomes problematic again we will replace it. You are quite right, your room should... More

Spacious room with a spa bath. Kitchen unit well equiped. Cosy and warm with a sofa to sit on and enjoy the wide range of sky channels. Very clean and a lovely friendly Scottish girl who was happy to help whenever I needed fresh towels.

Rooms were a nice size, the price was great value. Close to the pools and the shops, reception was friendly. Free wifi without limits which is great for looking up things to do in the area. Would highly recommend staying here and we would again.

Nice clean Modern place with close proximity to town and pools. With the winter starting out strong in Hamner the room was warm and super comfy! I did wish they had stocked a bit more than 1 hot chocolate as it was prime weather out for it. I would recommend this place and will be booking again when we come... More

We pulled up in the afternoon and got a great deal on the upgraded room with a massive spa bath. The room was huge and very comfortable. No downsides, 5 minute walk to restaurants and the hot springs. The guy at reception was great, very helpful. Oh and free wifi!

Very happy with our short stay at this motel. We shared a 2 bedroom apartment with another couple. The apartment was very clean and spacious and the beds very comfortable. The manager was friendly and helpful. The location was near the springs and there were also several restaurants nearby. Everything was walking distance. It was so quiet and peaceful.
