We booked a studio motel room here recently. we enjoyed our stay very much, the studio was by far the biggest motel room iv ever stayed in. it was so nice to have the extra space! lovely to have what felt like a kitchen/lounge/dining room & bedroom all in one. the motel was spotlessly clean and fresh. we really appreciated...

I loved our one night stay here – the motel was perfect for two people needing separate beds and plenty of space. It ticked all my boxes; it was clean, comfortable and most importantly QUIET. We were in #8, a unit near the end of the complex with easy-in-easy-out parking. The bed was entirely too soft for my tastes, but...

We stay in Hanmer every couple of months and we would revisit Glenalvon Lodge Motels as we were impressed with the place. Its quiet , a short waddle to the local eateries and the hot pools are ~ 2 mins across the road. Tidy and well presented facilities.

It was very clean and the room was huge! Good location right by the thermal springs and only a two minute walk to the village. Add free coffee, tea and towels you can take to the springs and this place is a winner!

Decides to go to Hanmer for the night and found this wonderful little place. We rang ahead and informed them we might be a little late. When we arrived our hosts had the heating on and the place toasty warm. Clean and tidy too. Will be back soon! Highly recommended.

This motel is very handy to the pools, shops and eateries - but is also away from the noise. Our unit was very clean and tidy - a little dated and with a ridiculously small a TV. The shower's pressure was not very good, but having electric blankets was a nice touch. Tissues in the room would have been appreciated....

What a great small Motel. Peaceful and quiet yet right in the centre of Hanmer Springs only five minutes from the pools. We found the room clean and tidy and quite comfortable to relax in, very welcoming and warm. The two reasons I didn't give it a perfect score was because of a small 21" TV and pillows thaat were...

clean room, spacious, well appointed rooms. Stayed 2 nights after a long drive through Molesworth. Just over the road from the hot pools, wander over wrapped in a towel (supplied by motel) . Close to town and wonderful restaurants

I choose this property for it's proximity to the Hot Springs. It is a small property; within walking distance of the restaurants/shops; the rooms spacious and clean; the decorations homely (not that that took away from our experience). Our host was welcoming and friendly. Towels were supplied to take to the Hot Springs. A very pleasant stay and very good...

Spent a night recently here, it was just what we needed, quiete, and just across the road from the hot pools, fantastic service. The room we had was huge and the bathroom was massive. We totally enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.
