Harrogate Gardens Motel
Ranked #14 of 21 Hotels in Hanmer Springs
Reviewed November 21, 2010

Harrogate is a nice change from the bigger motels/hotels. The owners take your comforts and needs seriously and make every effort to make sure you have a wonderful stay. The cookies are out of this world and there is a washing machine in the unit's kitchen. Wifi is available but there isn't a computer in the room if you aren't bringing your own.

As a regular visitor to Hanmer Springs for work I can go past Harrogate Gardens. The rooms are lovely, warm and comfortable. I'm always well looked after and feel like a member of the family. Whether its for work or for holiday the team at Harrogate Gardens will look after you and you won't be disappointed.

Stayed in one of the self-contained apartments for two nights - absolutely beautifully presented and super clean. Spacious with very comfortable bed and appointments. Large modern bathroom and great spa bath (great after bush walking in the forests). Host Phillipa was very friendly and helpful. Towels were replaced daily. Small kitchenette (hob and microwave) and washing machine. Quiet and secluded yet within a couple of minutes walk to the Hot Pools and shopping. Excellent value for money and an absolute hidden gem.

This motel is a short walk from the Hanmer Springs Thermal Reserve. Phillipa and Kerry are very friendly and helpful. The room was pleasant. We enjoyed their garden and picnic table. The grounds are lovely. Worth the NZ$90.

What a super place very close to all the amenities but hidden away in a quiet cul de sac directly over the road frm the Hot Springs. There are two rooms in the chalet at the back of the house and we had one of these. Spotlessly clean, satellite TV with lots of channels. Had a DVD player in room with a massive library of movies available, all free. No internet access in room but could use office in house so no problem. Nicely fitted kitchen, so we cooked in for first time in 6 weeks. Very big bathroom with excellent standard of finish and powerful, hot shower. Kerry and Phillipa were charming hosts, all at a really great price.

What a great couple of motel units, Far exceeded my expectations big rooms, big bed, big spa bath.But a little tv, oh well nobody can be perfect but they came close. Highly recommend to all.
We will be back and hopefully they might have been to a tv shop 32 inch flat panel would do the trick.
Thanks for the wonderful stay, see you soon.

After reading other reviews, we decided to book our one night stay at the Harrogate Gardens Motel. It was even better than we expected. Large, clean and well appointed rooms. Philippa a perfect host.

After we checked out, we headed down the street for some breakfast. A few minutes later, Philippa, along with her gorgeous terrier, Millie, found us. We had left a wallet in the unit and she came looking for us!!! THANK YOU AGAIN, PHILIPPA!!!
