Very happy with our short stay at this motel. We shared a 2 bedroom apartment with another couple. The apartment was very clean and spacious and the beds very comfortable. The manager was friendly and helpful. The location was near the springs and there were also several restaurants nearby. Everything was walking distance. It was so quiet and peaceful.

Nice little hotel with neat, clean & comfortable room although toilet/show area is very small. Located very close walking distance to everything in town. Staff at reception are friendly too. Stayed here for one night.

Excellent location. Just on the edge of town but only a very short walk (fine for our 2yr old!) to the hot springs and a short walk to the town shops. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment for our family (2 adults and 2 preschoolers) - room 8. The room was probably a bit small for our family size but...

A very confortable Motel, run by a lovely young couple, that gives you what it says on the tin, a nicely furnished room, with all facilities including a jacuzzi bath! Very clean and worth a try! Everywhere that we have stayed at in New Zealand has been first class quality, and this Motel is no different! There are, as usual,...

Good classic service, newspaper available free the next day, free wifi, located in the village so close to restaurants, food and services. Opposite the tree lined walk way and the hot pools 2 minutes walk away - modern rooms, very comfortable and clean.

Nice rooms, friendly staff, perfect location close to the pools. But nothing special. The Wifi doesn't work reliable. So it wasn't possible to use the 2 hours free Wifi. By the way, free unlimited Wifi should be a matter of course - especially with regard to the ambitious rates.

Large room with comfortable large double. We chose a disability room (downstairs) when we booked and got the one closest to the road but no road noise problems. It meant that we had windows on 2 sides plus the entry plus a lovely secluded patio. Bathroom had a large spa bath, a bonus. Newspaper delivered free each morning. WiFi -...

We stayed for two nights in a two bedroom unit. Everything was great. Rooms were large and well set out. All was very clean. It was very quiet with minimal noise at all. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. An easy walk everywhere. Would highly recommend.

Stayed for 1 night in December. Clean and tidy rooms. They were able to accommodate 2 adults and 4 children in one unit. Short walk to Hanmer Pools. There was a slight muck up with the online booking which was resolved quickly without any issues. Would recommend to others.

I stayed with my girlfriend for just one night while on our way to Golden Bay. The motel was clean and comfortable, only a short easy walk to the hot pools and shops/restaurants . The only downside was there was no sink or cooktop if needed (not that we did). Overall it was a nice stay and would stay again...
