We hadn't booked but chose from the road! Had a ground floor studio which was just what we wanted. Plenty of room, very clean and attractive. Friendly reception and walking distance to central Hanmer Springs. Very good value for money.

A spacious, clean and centrally located motel close to the thermal pools, excellent eateries and shops with a special deal for the overnight stay helped make this an enjoyable stay. The management were very friendly and helpful and lent us towels for the hot pools. The pools are so relaxing and we highly recommend spending a few relaxing hours there....

We stayed in a large family unit that was comfortable and clean with all we needed for our brief visit to Hanmer. It was located a short walk from the thermal springs on the main road though it was quiet and convenient. There is an arrangement with a local eatery where you can get food delivered if you do not...

Friendly, clean, spacious motel in a very central location opposite the thermal springs. Everything is of fine quality. Only one issue, the wifi was weak in our room but a booster about to be installed. Great recommendation for dinner at #31 where we ate outdoors on a lovely summer's night. Would have enjoyed a second night if we had had...

Beautiful apartment with separate toilet to the bathroom. Each bedroom had a double bed with a single bed too. Wish we could have spent more time here. Nice and close to the thermal pools and restaurants. Could take a pleasant stroll there amongst the trees. Friendly reception too. Free wifi.

Firstly, we booked our room at the Tussock Park Motor Lodge using wotif.com and while it asked if we were travelling with a child, aged 0-12 and that would have added $20 to the cost! Well we took a travel cot and when we showed up with the child they didn't even mention any extra cost for "additional children" that...

We stayed in a 1 bed unit for two nights. We enjoyed our stay. The decor was modern and fresh, especially the bathroom. Was nice to have sky tv and the kids channels for our kids. Loved the bed linen and Sheridan towels. Only down sides were lack of storage for clothes (no cupboards or clothes draws) so everything stayed...

Rooms clean and tidy. Service amazing helpful and friendly. Convenient location to springs and town all within very short walking distance. Great view across the valley and towards mountains. A definite stop while in Hanmer Springs.

Surprisingly comfortable and conveniently located to the hot pools. Only downside was no lock on the bathroom but other than that it was great. Loved the high pressure shower and appreciated the selection of SKY channels. Pretty reasonably priced too!
