I booked in here but had the wrong day booked a studio unit. This was quickly sorted but no studio units available so they gave us a huge unit for the same price as a studio. So handy to pools and restaurants a one minute walk.

Because of weather and road closures we ended up staying here three nights in total, in two different units. They fit in our extra days at the last minute and were very helpful. The rooms are a little old-fashioned I suppose, but are well maintained, clean, comfortable and spacious. The motel is just around the corner from Hanmer Springs town...

Had a nice stay for the night, only a minutes walk to town, and they allowed our little Miniature Schnauzer to stay with us. If you are traveling with pets you would need to ring and confirm before making a booking. All in all a nice place to stay.

This motel is more cabin-style accommodation. It's very centrally located and close to the famous Hanmer Springs Pool facility, yet it's somehow quite quiet. It's very dated, but the cabins were roomy, with kitchenettes and had everything you need (so long as you don't yearn for matching crockery!). I'd stay there again.

Stayed here in 2007, 2009 and 2017 and its still the best motel in town. A wee bit dated now but absolutely spotless and a fully fitted kitchen to boot - what more could you want? Sad to hear the lease is up soon - hope the lovely family who have it get to keep it 😎😎 x x c

Very spacious and central located just opposite the thermal baths. The rooms are very light and spacious. They are clean and very comfortable also there is parking on the property and restaurants and pubs are next door

Neat and clean. Good location to attractions. The interior is a mismatch of items but clean. The price didn't seem value for money. What gives this place an edge is the location alone. The room was quiet. The wifi kept dropping out but the views were worth the stay.

Nowadays it's quite hard to find a motel with lots of room and with a full kitchen. This is one of these motels. Fantastic location not far from the pools or shops. Very clean. It is a little dated but the space and comfortable furniture make up for that. You even get your own small fenced off grass area.

We got what we paid for - $135 for the night. Very basic setup - if it gets the r&r it needs the cost will rise. Sleep was comfortable and very quiet. On a side street few meters from a pub with good food and then across the road to the pools.

“Best to ask for a room with undercover and close parking if available in case it is raining for unpacking luggage from your car to the room.”
