Due to the earthquake we had to change our travel plans which involved driving through Hanmer.

This is a very nice unit. I appreciate that it comes equipped with a full kitchen, a powerful heater in the bathroom and an air con unit in the room.

Lovely motel in a peaceful location just around the corner of the very pretty village of hanmer springs. Shops and restaurants nearby, we had a takeaway from Mr Yunan which we had delivered. Our motel room was very clean and comfortable. We very much enjoyed the spa which was in the village.

We had such a wonderful stay, it was so quiet, clean and a great place for a romantic getaway. We love it how it is so close to all of the restaurants, shops and the hot pools. The best thing for us though is being able to relax in the big spa bath.

This is the only place we will now stay in at Hanmer. Location is perfect, quiet off the main road yet only walking distance to everything. Great room and the bonus of having a spa bath. Hosts very friendly and accommodating.
