A comfortable, large room in a quiet street 2 blocks back from the pools. I'm sure the staff are lovely but we didn't see anyone, as they must of been away. A note was left at office door as to what room was ours. Very trusting.

After a long drive from Picton it was lovely to arrive at this quiet and very well appointed secret hideaway. All we could hear in the morning was the birdsong, yet the busy main area of Hanmer Springs was only 5 minutes walk away. The staff member we met was very friendly and offered to do a huge amount of...

The large room and very large bathroom with enormous wirl pool bath, was well stocked with everything you will need for a great stay. The small private garden was handy. To walk into town was only a couple of minutes where you find supermarket eateries and hot springs.

Lovely place to stay, everything you need is provided. Delightful garden with a private sitting area. Very quiet but still so close to everything. Staff so helpful! Having the day spa on site is a real bonus. Would definitely recommend.

We came here knowing that Hammer Springs was affected by the earthquake but everything was perfect - room, weather, facilities, environment and motel staff What delighted me was that they have a backyard gas grill. Needless to say, I used it to BBQ my rib eye steak, and had a good dinner with my other half! There are other motels...

An excellent place to stay with conveniently located Forest walks and friendly helpful hosts. The room size was very large with a large spa bath & a separate shower booth plus a little private backyard and a bbq. The 12 noon check out time was most welcome also. Henry & Marla Tun Sydney Australia

We went there for a night and it was lovely. Staff was friendly and the room was cozy. The items equipped in the room are well thought of (eg. a heater to hang and dry clothes, full kitchen...). It was a lovely motel and we would definitely return!
