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

The staff were super friendly and willing to help with everything. The room was clean and warm and it is within a walking distance to the main street of Hamner. Would definitely recommend this amazing motel to anybody heading to Hamner. Also has quite a nice view of surronding mountains.

Made last minute booking for one night at Forest Peak. Friendly greeting, spotless accommodation with everything we needed. It was warm, comfortable, and bright. Really enjoyed out stay and will stay here next time we need a motel in Hanmer.
