We booked a three bedroom apartment - it was clean and spacious and more than we expected for such a good price. Staff were really friendly and helpful. It is just a short walk into town. Wifi was a bit sketchy but not a big deal.

We booked online two nights prior to arrival. It looked fine on Booking.Com but when we arrived it was nothing like our expectation for the money we paid. The self-contained unit was small & old fashioned & we could not have prepared food or eaten in the grubby kitchen area. We chose to check out & were refunded the full...

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.

We arrived a little bit earlier than expected and pleasantly surprised that we were able to check in early without extra charge. Owners very helpful and friendly. We stayed with our 1 year old and had no issues with accomodation. Warm and comfortable.

Clean, warm, and quiet. Very friendly welcome. Very close to walking tracks and township. Everything was within walking distance. Walking tracks, food outlets, hot pools. We particularly enjoyed the fact that we could walk to the walking tracks.

Wanted something not too expensive with all facilities and this ticked the boxes. Room was clean and lovely fresh sheets on the bed. Greeted by lovely friendly lady on our arrival. My only gripe was the room smelt like cigarette smoke and needs a good airing out. Nice to be greeted with a warm room as the heating was on....

Excellent location for family , the unit is clean and seems that they complete all hygiene expected in the entire unit. The small kitchen so very helpful for out young one. The unit is separate so that you have your own privacy and enjoyment without disturbing others. Only one suggestion would be - ON your heaters prior the arrival ,...

I stayed on the recommendation of my cousin who frequently has stayed with her extended family and appreciated the excellent friendly service and the fire when heaters were not working effectively. Hamner is cold in winter it was appreciated that the heaters were on to warm the rooms before we arrived. Having a separate bedroom meant I could sleep comfortably...
