We really enjoy staying here. Harry could not have been more helpful. Spacious room in a quiet location. Separate bedroom so no fridge noise. Very convenient for walking to main attractions especially the Thermal Spa.

Spacious 2 bed unit, car parking outside, clean, well appointed and easy walk to thermal spa, shops and woodland walks. Very friendly and helpful owners. Easy to find. Hanmer Springs is stunning location surrounded by mountains. We enjoyed our one night stay. Small swimming pool on site. Set in nice garden.

We stayed in a two bedroom lodge. It was spacious, warm and had ample room. It had everything we needed such as Sky tv, hot showers, heating etc. The lady was very accommodating by giving us extra towels to go over to the spa pools and even giving us a game that we spent the evening playing. Lots of parking...

The Motel is just off the main road in Hanmer Springs. It is 5 mins walk from the Hot pools. Units are tired and they were very hot. Fans are provided to help cool you off. Staff helpful and friendly.

Thank you for your review, there's not a lot we can do regarding hot days, the double doors at the front of the units can be opened also all the windows, the fan can be used and close the curtains before the sun gets into the unit. There is also a good picnic area that is shaded at night. Regards...

Stayed here for one night with my girlfriend. Arrived early and wanted to see if we could leave our luggage behind the desk but we're told we could just leave the car in the car bays. Upon check-in, the lady (who I assume was the owner) was nice but kept getting distracted while taking us to our room, helped another...

Most people are glad that they can leave their cars and luggage safely in the covered car parks if they arrive early, as it saves any parking troubles in town especially when town is busy and you don't have to unpack your car twice. Sorry your felt your room was dusty but I can assure you it is dusted daily...

Spa Lodge is a typical example if an NZ motel built in the early 80 and hasn't been updated in the intervening period. It was clean and tidy but dated. Location is good - 1 minute walk to town and the hot springs. And on a side street with minimal traffic.

Sorry you thought the pool would be open, it is only open in the Summer time usually when school holidays start as before this the air and water temperature is far to cold. Unless November is unusually hot which is wasn't this year as we still were getting snow on the hills around, the pool is closed until the Xmas...

There is a lot of accomodation in Hamner Springs and as I think that you are only to sleep in a motel, for me, my choice is mainly based on price and if you dont want to pay to much, you expects a little less quality. So I was not expecting a very flash room. The room was clean and...
