We have visited Hanmer on many occasions and this is the best place to stay. Friendly, helpful hosts; short walk to hot pools; very clean and well maintained accomodation; nice and comfy beds; play area for children.

Nice motel - very clean and modern. Helpful owners. And make sure you take a glass of wine and watch the sunset from the western edge of the motel. A stunning view over paddocks and hills in a peaceful place. Fantastic.

Two nice rooms, suitable for a large group, and great views. Clean and modern design, but very basic in the supplies (glasses or plates). I found the hosts too friendly, and they would enter our rooms to hand out forgotten wifi passwords. Very expensive for what you get, but not too far to walk to the pools.

Spent two nights staying in a studio at the motel. Had a fabulous stay. Everything you could wish for in the unit. The owners were so welcoming and helpful. When visiting Hanmer in the future I will always stay here. I highly recommend it.

We've stayed here a couple of times. The staff are friendly. The rooms standard except the spa pool room. Videos are available for rainy days. However, spa bath in spa room was dirty. Overall the place is basic with a kitchenette, beds are warm and comfy and suits most needs.

As a group of 9, we required two rooms for this stay, Nothing was too much trouble - we even received a call on the morning of our arrival to check on the dynamics of the group and how we would like the beds made up! Rooms are large, extremely well furnished and provide a very high level of comfort....

My family and I were in Hanmer Springs for 5 days for work. We have travelled and stayed in various locations throughout NZ, and this place is at the top of our list!!!

We enjoyed a couple of nights while visiting the hot springs ( well worth a visit ) and have to say we were made most welcome, good room facilities with a spa bath and lots of helpful advise I would say this motel while the room we had was a little smaller than average was exceptional value
