“Comfortable and convenient”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Hostess was very helpful. Room large and comfortable (but lacked airconditioning during a hot spell). Cooking facilities are a microwave only. Convenient to the village although we chose to drive there. Free WiFi.

Room Tip: Traffic noise if windows are opened in Rooms 8-10 which happen to have the best views.

Thank you for your review on your stay with us at the Hot Springs Motor Lodge. We were pleased to read you enjoyed your stay, although a bit too hot. On the day of your stay we reached nearly 36 degrees, hard to imagine in winter we have snow on the ground. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in New Zealand
Kind regards

Arrived late due to our flights and had to phone the manager on duty (Jill) she was very pleasant and accommodating. The room was great, huge comfy bed and no issues at all. Shame we couldn't have stayed longer. Thank you would definitely recommend it

This hotel was lovely, it was clean and tidy, it was a pleasure to stay here! The room I was in had three single beds with a kitchenette, spacious bathroom and access to a outdoor eating area! The bar was great although a bit pricey... Breakfast was average! Overall great place to stay!

I have stayed at many motels in Hanmer over 30 years and this is by far the best. Great comfortable king bed, huge room, bath and reasonable restaurant attached. Friendly , helpful owners. Thank you we will be back!

We were recommended this place by family, have driven past it several times before - thinking it would be way too expensive but this time went in an were pleasantly surprised. Value for money this is one of the nicest an roomiest motels we have ever stayed in. Receptionist friendly and helpful. Super king size bed an lovely BIG spa (which sadly we were too pooped to use) We will definatly be going back. Spoke to other family about it an they already booked in day after we were there. So nice to stay in friendly and clean and roomy/comfortable accommodation. We are already talking about our next visit. We have stayed in many motels in NZ an this is probably the best value for money. Thank you so much for helping us end our holiday on a high.

Room Tip: Don't judge until you have tried, this is honestly one of the best :)

We returned to Hot Springs Motor Lodge for the second time in three weeks and we were not disappointed . This is a first class motel with staff and accommodation giving it the air and quality of a top 5 star hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and everything is top drawer including the highly efficient WIFI. I cannot recommend this motel more highly.
