Super friendly, lovely spacious room! Big bathroom. Had 1 night here and wanted to stay longer. Super comfy bed, close to main township and hot pools. Was nice to come back after a long day and just relax.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The location was perfect for our quick stay and relaxation time at the hot springs. The room was very comfortable, although the bathroom did feel a little clinical. Staff were very welcoming and accommodating- some of the best service we received in NZ!

Nice clean room with a comfortable bed and close to town centre and hot springs. Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable of the local area, even offering extra towels for use at the hot spring pools.

This is just the place to rejuvinate two days after dental surgery. I was far from flash when I arrived but was given a very nice room, a warm and friendly welcome and an offer of any assistance I needed. All the usual things were supplied as well as additional towels for the spa, although there was a spa bath...

Stopped here for the night for work - very impressed with the friendly helpful staff, the cleanliness of the room, and how quite the room was. Being Hanmer the rooms were of course double glazed which not only cut down noise but kept the heat in - so much so was very surprised in the morning to see 2 inches...

We stayed at the hot springs motor lodge on our last night in NZ following 5 weeks travelling around. Good location just a couple of kilometres down the main street from all the restaurants and shops. On-site bar and restaurant which were v.nice. Large room, v.clean, all amenities, good view. Friendly welcome to boot. Really enjoyed our stay in town.

What a great find. The paddock next door is set up for self contained NZMCA members to use and it is a great spot. Just checkin at reception and choose your spot. You pay $30 and get a $30 voucher to use at 5 Stags. Essentially a free nights accommodation and you can use your voucher for drinks or meals....

As a regular to visit Hanmer I've stopped in a few motels. They all provide the same level of service which is brilliant. This one is no different a great place to stay with beautiful views of snow covered mountains and a super king bed that isll absolutely the best bed I've stopped in a Hanmer motel. Rooms are spacious,...
