Brisbane, Australia
Reviewed 12 April 2017

This motel was in a great location, we didn't need to drive the whole time that we were in Hanmer. The rooms were clean and tidy, with a lovely view. We had a two bedroom, which was enough room for a family off four. The only thing we did notice on our last night was we could hear our neighbors...

Clean, spacious and comfortable, and very close to the pools, but not on the main street. An easy walk to the pools and local eating places etc. Very helpful, friendly hosts, and they supplied towels for the hot pools!

This motel is in a really good location, near to the pools and away from the busy part of the main street. The hosts are great, helpful people to deal with. The venue is clean and modern, and it's well priced.

We stayed at the Alpine Garden Motel for one night while doing a road trip around the South Island. The Motel was very close to the hot pools and the main strip of shops. Very nice place for the price!

The perfect place to get away and unwind. The room was nice and private and very comfortable. The only regret is not staying two nights to make use of the spa bath! James was fantastic and made sure our stay was memorable. Will definately be back.

The Alpine Garden Motel is situated in a great location and a very easy walk to everything in town. Convenient yet nice and quiet. We liked our time in Hanmer Springs. The kids loved the Thermal pools and mini golf. Owners are friendly and helpful.

Studio room with great view of hills beyond motel. Rate for two people was good, room was made up the next day, spa bath included in separate bathroom. Facilities good for one or two night stay in this studio room. Comfortable bed and quiet being at the end of the motel units. Hence the view.

A quick get away, without the children, with my bestie from Brisbane! Found this motel was very central,( over the road from the hot pools). Extremely nice hosts, very helpful indeed. Room was clean, spacious. Shower was a little on the small side for my larger framed friend. But overall top marks!

Our room was lovely and clean and warm! Just perfect for us! A short evening stroll the main street for dinner. The supply of extra towels is a bonus. Helpful and friendly staff. Loved the garden setting, even took some photos.
