THis is a good value place to stay in Hamner Springs. Located at the edge of the township, the self contained units are comfortable and spacious, the staff are friendly, there is a laundry available and most of what yuo need is walking distance (albeit a bit of ahill) if you have no car.

Dear Alison
thank you for your time doing the review. WE are happy to have you here and enjoy the days in the Hanmersprings.Our chalets are set in extensive grounds situated just 250 metres from the Hanmer Springs village shops and 400 from the hot pools. Being slightly uphill we enjoy magnificent views and have a very quiet location. Not everyone knows there is fantastic mountain views in the Hanmerspings.
The most important things is making you comfortable to stay in our place.
thank you very much , you have a wonderful trip in NewZealand.

While the room was clean, large and comfortable the establishment itself is definitely in need of a refurb. It's a shame that the rooms are so dated because everything else is a winner - very central and great staff.

Room Tip: If you're after somewhere modern then it'd probably be worth giving this one a miss

THat is right , we are uphill with magnificent views.Each chalet is a separate building (no common walls) set in our spacious grounds, and each has its own veranda. WE are the first motel in hanmerspring and keep updating the rooms. it will be different when you visit us next time.

We always stay here when we come to Hanmer Springs. It is older in style and could do with updating, but we love it's location and the fact that it's at the top of the hill, you have a view over to the mountains looking towards Christchurch. Ask for chalet no 12 or 14, which are seperate from the others and also has undercover parking and 2 balconies.

Room Tip: Chalet numbers 12 or 14 for undercover parking

Five ladies for a girls weekend staying two nights in Hanmer Springs.We had a three bedroom Lockwood chalet, nicely furnished, spacious and modern. Reception was helpful in pointing out areas to visit. The chalet was easy walking distance to restaurants and shops with the lovely Conical Hill walkway just up the road behind us and a short walk down the road to Hanmer. The amenities were good with a fabulous gas log fire in the lounge and heat pump fanning into the bedrooms. The open plan lounge, dining, kitchen area had all the comforts of home with large chaise lounge suite, coffee table and sky tv and plenty of room for the dining table, chairs and kitchen barstools. The wraparound deck showed fabulous expansive views of the countryside. The beds were comfortable and chalet warm and cosy. There was no clothes dryer in the house but it did have a laundry area and portable clothes rack for drying towels etc, which with the fire having heated the rooms, dried togs and towels overnight in the lounge. My one suggestion would be to hang a mirror in the bedrooms, as the only mirror in the chalet was the bathroom and with five women in one chalet that is definitely not enough.

One of our favourite motels on our NZ trip. It's a shortish walk from the 'town centre' and the springs themselves but is beautifully quiet. Parking was easy and the chalet was nicely spacious with a great seating area outside.
The cooking facilities were among the best we had in any of our motels and we even had a lovely view out of the bathroom window!

Excellent value for money when all you need is a place to rest the head after a day of travel and sightseeing. Many other reviewers have commented on the dated state of the rooms and I must echo these. It is certainly not flash accommodation and could really use some fresh paint and fixtures to modernise and improve the visual appeal. That being said, we were simply using Hanmer Springs as a stop over between Dunedin and Nelson so only needed a place to rest for the night. Check-in and check-out was a breeze, especially since I booked and paid on-line using the AA booking site. The young man was very friendly and helpful - providing a map, recommendations for "the best bar in town", and openning and closing hours for the hot springs.
Our group was made up of 3 single female travellers ranging in age from 30 to 60 so the two bedroom cabin was perfect - one bedroom with a double bed, the other with two singles and the common area also had two single beds.

This place would be ok in the Summer, but we stayed the first weekend with rain for the first time in months and the room was so damp already. Very old and tired furniture and fittings, bathroom was terrible, shower hopeless. Person at reception at the time of our check-in could not even recommend a restaurant for us to dine at for tea and only pulled two brochures off the wall. Sorry but we wont be back.
