Booked at the last minute as we were not sure if we would stay in Hanmer. Got the last unit. It was roomy, clean and very comfortable. Only stayed one night but would have liked to stay longer. Good place to stay and Dale was very friendly and helpful.

The motel is in the Centre of town , almost opposite the Thermal Pool entrance. The studio unit was clean, comfortably furnished, with all amenities functioning. Parking was just outside the unit. It was a quiet spot considering it is in the town centre. The host was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this as a place to stay...

We stayed for one night recently as part of a group cycle tour. Dale was well prepared for 10 tired & dirty cyclists - so much so that he did our laundry!!! 😁👏 The rooms were spacious and very clean. Perfect continental breakfast in each room. Dale was super helpful & cheerful - wish all moteliers had his enthusiasm.

Enjoyed our stay at Hamner. We just wanted a one night stay so we wanted to be in town. Nice pleasant motel and were happy with what the room had.

My sister & I have enjoyed two separate overnight stays this month at Glenalvon. The rooms we stayed in were spacious & quiet. While the decor was dated, we felt we could relax. The price was right & the hosts friendly. Don't miss a relaxing few hours at the hot pools, just across the road. Our hosts provided extra towels...

Nice comfortable clean studio unit. Owner very dismissive when I mentioned the lack of a motel compendium, saying that Guests could easily walk around town to find out local activities! Not the best attitude to what was genuine constructive criticism.

Great night had in Hanmer, nice accomodation. Snow fall on Sunday morning was a bonus. Have stayed here at the Glenalvon Lodge before and would stay again, friendly owners clean and warm units with good parking so handy to the Heated pools and to restaurants. 10 out of 10 for location
