Reviewed December 2, 2006

Excellent room. Studio area is large, very comfortable, well decorated and clean. Good kitchen facilities with all the necessary to make food (if you are so inclined!) and a TV and DVD in your room so you can spend the night in relaxing! Everything looked new and well cared for.

Bathroom is well done, modern with a jacuzzi which we weren't expecting and was a huge bonus!!!!

Front desk staff are fabulous, very chatty and helpful. You can borrow DVD's at no charge from them and they are only to happy to give advice on the local area.

Location is good - about 2 mins from the centre of Hanmer with lots of restaurants nearby. I would recommend booking a meal at the Post Office - the meal we had here is one of the best we have had anywhere!

Would definately stay here again and recommend to anyone. If you are planning on doing a roadtrip like us, I would recommend spending a few nights here for some rest and respite - it is a great motel to chill in and really nice location. Very good 'chilling out' place!

What a fantastic place to stay!
We arrived in Hanmer Springs without a place to stay and were advised that this motel was only 18 months old and was affordable luxury. We were met at reception by Rosina and Bruce the owners who were so friendly and helpful.
The rooms were stunning to say the least, very clean and modern, nothng was too much trouble.

You must eat at The Laurels restarant a few yards up the road (Does not look much from the outside initially but once inside the place is lovely and we can not say enough about the excellent food)

Both places well worth the 24, 000 mile round trip from the UK - must stop here.
