We got what we paid for - $135 for the night. Very basic setup - if it gets the r&r it needs the cost will rise. Sleep was comfortable and very quiet. On a side street few meters from a pub with good food and then across the road to the pools.

On first sight the room reminded me of one of those bad 70s motel movie sets. It is outdated and prone to power issues due to inefficient power boards. While well maintained the room was musty and smelt like it had been closed up for some time and was musty and smelt like my nanas. Location is excellent and staff...

We came to Hanmer on an impromptu visit and decided to stay over and this motel had available rooms. We spent the afternoon at the pools and it was snowing - beautiful but very cold. We returned to our two bedroom unit and it was freezing. We tried to warm it up but every time we turned on heater the...

We stayed in a 2 bed villa. Kitchen is out off the 70s but adequate. Bathroom the same and small, shower is a shub and curtain. Carpet dated, heating only just keeping up (winter). Beds okay. BUT.. the location is brilliant and our unit is sunny.

Yes, the decor may be dated but this was a great option for a family night away. HEAPS of space compared with most other motels. Clean, tidy and fantastically close to the hot pools. Would recommend a villa unit for families, esp with energetic kids as room to close doors and not hear them!

Love the location, and the set up of the separate upstairs and bedrooms. Nice and clean with comfy beds. My biggest complaint though is lack of heating. Big time. There is a tiny heater downstairs that struggles to keep the main room at 23c. Open a door and the temperature drops. It's great that there is electric blankets but the...

This motel is dated but was clean and roomy with kitchen facilities, there was no parking right outside the room we had. But given we hadn't booked we couldn't complain. Location to town, baths and shops was great.

We stayed in one of their small house units with a few friends and it was roomy and comfortable. The kitchen well equipped and lots of space to feel comfortable. Really close to everything including bakery and restaurants. The price was good too!

Great 2 bedroom motel for young families with small hallway area between lounge and bedrooms so two doors between bedrooms and lounge to reduce noise. Adequate kitchen facilities. Only chub bath with shower over. Older decor but impeccably clean and tidy. Fenced yard great for young children. Friendly staff. Ultimate location in centre of town. We'll be back!
