One of the few pet friendly motels around. Very comfortable unit containing everything you need for an overnight or longer stay. Electric blankets, when we arrive in the evening just as the outside temperatures were dropping as they do in the mountains, the heaters had been turned on preparing the unit for us. The lady running the motel was most...

Fabulous little cabin for a great price, super friendly operators and very clean if a little dated. If you're after all the whistles and bells then maybe this isn't for you but if you appreciate good value and friendly service I think you'd like it, would definately stay again.

We stayed here for one night. Although location was great and Hamner Springs a beautiful place I wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer. Wifi was non existent but apparently there was a sensor down. Interior was dated and although reasonably well equipped had little space to prepare food. With a little bit of updating this would be a gem.

We loved our little cabin in hanmer springs and wished we could have stayed longer, easy to check in at reception and very helpful. our cabin was clean with plenty of room for 4 adults and all that was required for our one night stay. Would recommend this place to anyone doing a road trip around the South Island.

Stayed last night in a cabin. Room is very clean spacious and well presented. What made the stay awesome was the amazing customer service from the couple that run the show. Highly enjoyed my stay here and he price was very reasonable for Hanmer. A+++

From arrival to leaving the staff were super friendly and helpful. The unit we had was spacious, clean and perfect for our overnight stay, though we could have easily stayed there longer. We had a 2 bedroom chalet which opened onto a little graden area with parking right outside the door. We walked down to the pools which was a...

I loved this little motel. It had everything we needed and was pristinely clean and the lady in the office was so friendly. If it's luxury you want do not choose to stay here but if you value cleanliness, friendliness, comfort and excellent value this is for you

We stayed for one night in a 3 bedroom family unit. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There wasn't really enough room in the bedrooms to fit luggage but we left ours in the hallway/lounge. This could be annoying if staying longer than a few days. The beds were comfortable but on the softer side. As other reviewers...
