This is a neat little motel with everything you could wish for. It's so close to the town's amenities that you can leave the car behind and just walk, but if you want to stay 'at home' the motel has a DVD collection that rivals some video stores I've seen. As well as being escorted to your room and being...

Amenities already mentioned by others are great location in a quiet neighborhood (vacant lot behind, park in front) yet within walking distance of the hot springs and the town center; large selection of free DVDs and extensive cable TV; reasonable prices; cozy but modern room with kitchenette and appliances. The owners were very friendly, helpful and accommodating, and gave extra...

I was so pleased that we booked this place. When we arrived the greeting was warm and inviting with lots of information and even an escort to our room. The location is ideal, being a 2 minute walk to the pools. They offer free movies to borrow and the room was well appointed, large, and beautifully clean.

Aspen Lodge Motel was recommended to me by the hotel manager I am staying at in Christchurch. It's a nice little getaway for a weekend. I stayed in a studio, there's a simple kitchenette, the room is spacious and clean. I arrived before check in time, the manager's wife kindly offered to take my bag and pointed me to a...

Aspen Lodge is well situated to walk into Hanmer Springs township and to the thermal pools which is a few minutes walk away. The units are comfortable and well equipped. The owners are very pleasant and there is an excellent, up to date choice of DVDs to borrow from the office as well. We will definitely stay again.

The facilities at the Aspen Lodge Motel are clean and spacious. The location is within walking distance to shops, pools and several restaurants. BUT, the attitude of the owners and their complete lack of customer service outweighs any of the positives of this facility. This is our families 4th trip to New Zealand and we have always enjoyed warm welcomes,...

Aspen Lodge exceeded our expectations. The apartment was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The location was excellent... only a hop, skip & jump from the pools and resturants. The owners were welcoming and the freshly baked muffins delivered to our room were a delicious treat - true kiwi hospitality. Next time we stay in Hanmer we will be booking in...

Very friendly and helpful owners who obviously really cared about their business. Our room was spacious and spotless, had a super-king bed - enormous and very comfortable, and although there was a bed settee already in the living area a good quality roll-away was left in the room for our teen so that we could utilise the lounge space without...
