Peter and Sue have done a good job here in making our stay friendly, relaxed. They even covered our windscreen so the car wouldn't ice up. Hanmer springs is not a far drive and you can save some money by staying here instead. they have Sky Tv sports too which is good if you like footy like I do.

We stayed here for two nights. The hosts are helpful and friendly and the place is clean neat and tidy. It is not super flash but it has everything you need. It is straight across the road from the golf course and a short walk to the shops and cafes.

We recently spent a girls weekend at the Culverden Court Motel and could not fault our stay there. The hosts, Peter and Sue, were fantastically friendly and helpful.

We had a wedding at Hurunui Village and being only 7 minutes from the venue this was a great choice. The new owners have only been there since February but the improvements already are plain to see. We could g Have just stayed drinking wine on the terrace overlooking the fabulous garden.

After a long flight and a drive from Christchurch, the vacancy sign at the end of a long road was a very welcome sight. A warm, friendly welcome from the owners. $110 for a very average room, next to quite a noisy road. There's plenty of accommodation options along the road at Hanmer Springs, but if you're just too tired... More

without a doubt worse motel, lack of cleanliness, heating and mostly privacy! if these are important factors in your accommodation, do not stay here! most appalling was the attitude of the owners, who entered my room unannounced at any time they felt, protesting about my power usage, and informed me at 8.30 am I was unwelcome to use my room...
