We had reservations (no pun intended) about staying here with our voucher as the reviews were not flash on Trip Advisor about the hosts. But! nice surprise when we arrived to find out it had been taken over by new owners. They were really lovely people. Log cabin was excellent, great location as very quiet so away from the hustle & bustle yet close enough to walk to the village centre. Child friendly, relaxing setting.

Room Tip: We would recommend the log chalets/cabins as the older units are joined.

Stayed at Forest Peak Motel at Labour weekend and found standards up to and beyond the previous owners. A few improvements i.e. new television, electrical appliances etc. It is the best motel in Hanmer as away from the noise and bustle of the town but close enough to walk within 5 - 10 minutes.

Room Tip: The stand alone chalets up the back are my choice when staying at this motel.

A warm and friendly greeting upon arrival by the new owners. Being a 5 minute walk from town, this is a super quiet location if you want a great nights sleep. Very comfortable and well-equipped. Staff were great!

Room Tip: Pay the extra to be in a self-contained log cabin with garden outlook!

Rooms are warm and lovely. Friendly owners and cat. Its hard to find good honestly priced accommodation in Hanmer Springs so this was a gem. Short walk to the pools and to town. Easy parking and nice open grassy area to relax in the sun. Highly recommended!!

Room Tip: Chalets are worth the little extra. Nice and cosy.

A lovely Family orentated Motel that has fantastic new owners who are friendly honest and very reliable, the rooms are warm and spotless, sheets are clean and bathrooms also. Short walk to town, fantastic owners who what i could tell had family visiting, and they all seemed to jump in and help, true Kiwi Spirt! would stay a million times over and would recomend to anyone going to Hanmer. Priced just right so not only the rich and famous can stay but the younge and restless down to the single parents! FANTASTIC
