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.

This little motel is a great location for a good price, walking distance to all the main eatery's and hot pools. Towels for the pools come with the motel so saves on one less thing to bring which is a nice added extra! Tidy room - well equipped with cooking facilities if you needed it too.

Staff were very friendly. Rooms were clean & warm. Only a short walk to the town centre. Living area was on the small side but comfortable! Bathrooms & kitchen very clean. Would recommend this motel to families traveling to Hanmer Spring.

Very nice room, great shower and a warm room. Comfy bed and nice teas and things. Was close to the village, and walking distance of the thermal pools (also provided towels for the pools). The owner was very helpful the next morning, explaining where we needed to go to head for Picton, and also hand delivered the morning paper.

Good location, and catered for our needs. Close to the spa pools and Main Street. There is also a good 50min walk around Hanmer Springs through the town and along dog stream walk - well worth taking the time to get up early!

We stayed here with another couple and so booked a two bedroom unit. We found it a quiet, cosy motel, clean and tidy, and our unit had a well appointed kitchen and a good bathroom and shower. The lock on the latter was a little tricky to use but we managed. All the beds were very comfortable. There was sufficient...

Thanks very much for the kind review. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We have a few issues with the internet for some reason...not sure if it is us or just the Hanmer location.
