There is a lot of accomodation in Hamner Springs and as I think that you are only to sleep in a motel, for me, my choice is mainly based on price and if you dont want to pay to much, you expects a little less quality. So I was not expecting a very flash room. The room was clean and... More

This is an older property so don't expect the shiny bathroom etc. you might get in a more modern property. What you do get, however, is a clean, spacious room with a nice, sunny outlook, free Wi Fi, friendly, helpful staff and a place to stay that is quiet yet right in the middle of the township.

This was a really well located motel. Like everyone says it is an older motel but that didn't worry us as was very clean. 2min walk to hot pools and town and great Asian takeaways across the road. Was quiet and had a great sleep.

We stayed here for 2x 1 night stays. The first night we arranged a late check in and on arrival light and heaters were on which was welcoming. The units are old but were very clean and had great showers. Comfortable beds. Very good location being 300m each from hot pools and forest. Have stay here previously and will again.

Our rooms were comfortable and warm, once we got the heaters going, with dated kitchen and bathroom facilities. These did the trick, mostly, but were old. Also we're used to having our room serviced to a higher level than having the mints replaced. Maybe an off day for the household staff?

Great value for Hanmer! Clean, tidy and very comfy beds. Older style rooms with all you need for a short stay. Undercover "carport" parking, very handy in winter. Good in room heating & electric blankets & hair dryer. Our room had a modern flatscreen tv with SKY channels.
