Alpine Lodge Motel
Ranked #16 of 21 Hotels in Hanmer Springs
Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

We (my grandmother and I) stayed in Hanmer Springs for two nights while travelling round the south island. I booked this motel through wotif, and was really happy with it. The hostess was friendly and lovely, always easily found for any qu's ect. There were complimentary towels in reception to take to the springs. The motel was right opposite the hot pools, brilliant! And within easy walking distance of all restaurants in Hanmer. The room was lovely and homely and clean. The kitchen had all that we needed for our stay, and the bathroom was spotless. I would recommend this motel, for $120 a night and all the above said, a pretty good deal!

This is the third time now that we have stayed at the Alpine Lodge and they have put us in the same room each time! We book a studio room and even though it is basic, it's always clean, comfortable and most importantly quiet! We always eat out, so can't comment on the kitchen facilities. The location is great - across the road from the thermal pools and walking distance to restaurants, cafes, etc. The rooms in Hanmer always seems to be quite pricey, so for $100 a night, I find this good value for money. There is ample car parking and it's very safe. Even though the motel is in need of a makeover, this now seems to be our usual stay when we come to Hanmer!

Hosts couldn't do enough to make your stay smooth & comfortable. Great value for money. Close to the hanmer springs (free towels & mats to take with you) and i-site. Fresh milk on arrival, and free dvds to watch for a cozy night in. Lovely!

I recently went to Hamner on a boozy 40th birthday bash of a good friend. I found the Alpine Lodge accomodation very convienent for all amenties and a clean comfortable stay. Staff very friendly too.

The great thing is they went the extra mile for me
1) Allowed late checkout with no issue as I went mountain biking in the late morning (and to douse my hangover)
2) In fact mailed me free of charge the mobile charger I had errorenously left in the room.

Hats off Alpine Lodge for your great service. I will be back.

Close to hot pools and town, very quiet which was surprising as it was fully booked. Good size for a single room. One negative - would like to have seen a heater or heat lamp in bathroom as that was freezing (-6 degree night!). We would stay there again.

Right in the center of town and across the road from the thermal pools the Alpine Lodge motel is fantastic value for money ($120 NZD for two adults). Easy, short walking distance to town with convenient access to great restaurants, cafes and bars, novelty shops, supermarket and the bakery. Larger style room (queen and single with sink, fridge, dining table and lounge in front of TV, wood paneled room, with coffee/tea making facilities). It had clean well maintained furniture and quality fixtures. The room had front and rear access which could be used to walk to town instead of walking around the back through the car park to enter. They have free ample off street parking right outside your room. The bathroom has heat lamps to create a warm room whilst showering and the oil heater in the lounge/bedroom was more than adequate to warm the place when it dropped to 3 degrees outside. The bed was firm although comfortable and resulted in a good nights sleep. The high ceiling in the room was good as it made the room feel bigger and more spacious. They offer free towels to be taken to the thermal pools at no extra charge and are more than accommodating on any request. No hassles. Would stay again. Highly recommended for the price and location.
