After a long drive from Picton it was lovely to arrive at this quiet and very well appointed secret hideaway. All we could hear in the morning was the birdsong, yet the busy main area of Hanmer Springs was only 5 minutes walk away. The staff member we met was very friendly and offered to do a huge amount of...

The large room and very large bathroom with enormous wirl pool bath, was well stocked with everything you will need for a great stay. The small private garden was handy. To walk into town was only a couple of minutes where you find supermarket eateries and hot springs.

My wife and I arrived on a hot New Year's day, and found our unit wonderfully cool. The space, cleanliness, thoughtful design, peace and quiet, spa bath, and central location for walking, left us so thankful that we had booked here. We only had one night in Hanmer Springs - our stay at Scarborough Lodge Motel left us wishing we...

Lovely place to stay, everything you need is provided. Delightful garden with a private sitting area. Very quiet but still so close to everything. Staff so helpful! Having the day spa on site is a real bonus. Would definitely recommend.

We came here knowing that Hammer Springs was affected by the earthquake but everything was perfect - room, weather, facilities, environment and motel staff What delighted me was that they have a backyard gas grill. Needless to say, I used it to BBQ my rib eye steak, and had a good dinner with my other half! There are other motels...

An excellent place to stay with conveniently located Forest walks and friendly helpful hosts. The room size was very large with a large spa bath & a separate shower booth plus a little private backyard and a bbq. The 12 noon check out time was most welcome also. Henry & Marla Tun Sydney Australia

We went there for a night and it was lovely. Staff was friendly and the room was cozy. The items equipped in the room are well thought of (eg. a heater to hang and dry clothes, full kitchen...). It was a lovely motel and we would definitely return!

Due to the earthquake we had to change our travel plans which involved driving through Hanmer. We booked with only 3 days notice and could not believe our luck to find such a luxurious apartment in a quiet residential area but only minutes walk from the town and thermal baths. We were able to borrow towels for the thermal baths,...

This is a very nice unit. I appreciate that it comes equipped with a full kitchen, a powerful heater in the bathroom and an air con unit in the room. The unit is very spacious, bed is supremely comfortable and there is a really nice jacuzzi bathtub in the bathroom. There is plenty of hot water as well for bathing....
