Lovely motel in a peaceful location just around the corner of the very pretty village of hanmer springs. Shops and restaurants nearby, we had a takeaway from Mr Yunan which we had delivered. Our motel room was very clean and comfortable. We very much enjoyed the spa which was in the village.

We had such a wonderful stay, it was so quiet, clean and a great place for a romantic getaway. We love it how it is so close to all of the restaurants, shops and the hot pools. The best thing for us though is being able to relax in the big spa bath.

This is the only place we will now stay in at Hanmer. Location is perfect, quiet off the main road yet only walking distance to everything. Great room and the bonus of having a spa bath. Hosts very friendly and accommodating.

The place is very close to town, only a few blocks from the hot pools, bars and restaurants. The room and bathroom are spacious, there is a small private outside area and the kitchen is well-equipped. Everything was clean, tidy and comfortable which made the stay very enjoyable.

Such a beautiful place to stay! We booked late in the afternoon and the room was made up with the heat pump running for our arrival. The spa bath was perfect for the cold spring night that it was. Very nice, warm, comfortable room. Would highly recommend to others!

Just two private, very large rooms in the complex and only a couple of minutes walk to town centre and the hot pools. Nice spa in the bathroom and if you leave the bathroom door open you can watch TV whilst in the pool. Everything very clean and tidy and a real comfy bed as well. Will definitely stay here... More
