I went onto a vacation to New Zealand with my son, and we chose to stay in Larchwood Motel for a couple of days in Hanmer Springs. We stayed in room # 5, and it was very pleasant. The room had two floors. I slept on the top while my son stayed at bottom. We were so happy that it...

Me and the lads went to Hanmer Springs for a bit of a get away. Awesome town with enough to do to keep one entertained for a couple days. We stayed at the Larchwood motel. The place was clean and comfortable. Beds were comfy and clean, enough towels, soaps and shampoo packets for us. We stayed in the family unit...

dirty, run down, untidy surroundings outside, cockroach in cupboard with breakfast bowls, will say bed was com fortable but that would be the only positive thing about the place. Do not stay here because it is cheap! Cheap is not always the best or anything accepatable.

The Larchwood Motel in Hanmer, NZ is a quiet value-priced motel. Clean and with comfortable beds, the management and staff welcomed us. Units have cooking facilities. Not luxurious, but adequate in z central location to the Hanmer Hot Springs complex.

Motel had all the basics required, bed, Sky tv, kitchen unit, close to the town centre and pools......but what was missing was a clean unit, hot water wasn't hot and the worst was old vomit still down the front of toilet. Staff very apologetic.
