“Great package deals.”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I visited the hot springs Hanmer Springs website and booked through that, they have heaps of different packages, we opted for the 'Hot Springs Escape' which was for two people for two nights for $149NZ. There was my Mum and I plus my 8 yr old who was an extra $69NZ using existing bedding. It had a King plus a single. Lovely rooms, full verandah with access to back and front doors. Free WiFi but dropped in and out was hard to get a connection. Nice and clean family run business. Would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely motel back in May 2013. We were only in Hanmer for one night for a family birthday celebration. We booked this motel after reading the reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Our room was very large and was spotlessly clean. The bed was large and comfortable and even though the motel was full we didn't hear any noise from other rooms. We will definitely be staying here again and I highly recommend it.

much more than we expected for the cost. spacious rooms, amazing views of snowy mountains. very warm, and a comfy bed. walking distance to hot springs and all restaurants. when u stay at lodge you get discount vouchers for the hotel/pub next door, they also provided fresh towels for the hot pools each day. plenty of parking. very friendly, helpful staff. We would definitely stay here next time we visit Hamner.

Stayed Queen's Birthday weekend. This was a return visit for us, and Hot Springs Motor Lodge is still highly recommended. Very friendly staff, large comfortable bed and an exceptionally spacious room. Will be back soon we hope.

Stayed here Queens Birthday weekend, Hanmer was very busy indeed. Friendly hosts, clean and comforatable and nice amenities. Very large rooms indeed. My only constructive comments would be could do with a wee bit more furniture in lounge and room we had did not have a bedroom door (designed that way). Our daughter was sleeping in lounge so that may be probelmatical on a longer stay. No biggie for us, well recommended.

Room Tip: Get a room facing road for great mountain views, but probably other rooms have this too...

We have stayed here on previous visits to Hanmer and it has always impressed us as being a top place to stay. However, when we stayed this time we found that things appear to have slipped just a little bit. The units are no longer serviced every day unless you request it and pay a daily fee. This of course means that the guests have to do their own ‘housework’ and the units are not re-stocked, so if anything runs out you must apply to have it replaced. I find that this distracts from the enjoyment of the holiday. I think that the tariff charged could easily include this service. I also found that the maintenance of the units is not being kept up to the standard we have come to expect at this motor lodge. I checked out some other accommodation in Hanmer and found that there are better options much closer to the town and the Hot Springs, for much the same tariff. However, this is still a nice place to stay and you will be denied nothing and the units are spacious and comfortable. The hotel restaurant next door is very handy, and although the meals are generous, they tend to be just a little bland. The motor lodge guest discount at the restaurant is a nice gesture, but make sure you get it as it sometimes appears to slip their mind.

Room Tip: Just tell them what type of room you would like and they will do their best to suit your tastes.

Dear Mr PhilyGumbo

I was very concerned to read your review of our property on Tripadvisor and would like to discuss further with you. We have been under new management for the last five months and have instigated several changes including servicing of guests rooms daily. Therefore your comments do very much concern me. If you could please contact us direct either on or 0800 number or email address that would be appreciated.

Kind regards
