Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a very pleasant 3 night stay in the One bedroom spa unit. It was very clean and spacious with a very comfortable bed. The owners are just fabulous and nothing is a problem. They have also just put in new Mountain Bike storage racks and bike cleaning station, which is an added bonus in Hanmer Springs. The location is super close to the town centre too.

Stayed one night and opted for one bedroom unit, which was good size and cleanl. Had everything that will want in a motel except may be heat pump though had heater and electric blanket. Heater was good for us as was not very cold though was raining throughout but will recommend for couple and families. We were the only people staying as was weekday and heavy rain forecast in Canterbury was in place.

Host was very warm and friendly and will recommend based on my experience. Also as centrally located everything was close by and it helped as was raining most of the time during my stay ( even though is a tiny town and most motels will be centrally located).

Will like to Thank the host for our stay and will recommend it to friends and family.

We had a wonderful time at the Aspen Lodge and would recommend it whole-heartedly! We were a multi-generational group (aged 5-72) spread over three rooms and everyone was happy! Megan was an amazing host and went out of her way to make us all feel welcome. Lovely touches included a free DVD library, a box of towels to borrow for the hot pools and fresh local milk in the fridge. The fact that the hot pools and Hanmer town centre were a tiny stroll away was an added bonus. It was a lovely cosy place to stay in a stunning location and we’ll definitely be back!

Aspen Lodge Motel, never never ever stay at this horrible hole in Hamner, these losers expect you to clean the unit from top to bottom after paying for an over priced sh.. kicker. These cow boys have NO idea about hospitality they aren’t even allowed to be on Airbnb being a motel hence why their name isn’t in the Airbnb page!!

Far better and hospitable options!

This review is full of one sided comments from a person who wrote on the initial review thru another platform that they had a great stay. We can not divulge any further details regarding this case. A personal attack on our business has now been made. Come and stay with us next time you are in Hanmer Springs and see what a wonderful time you will have then you can come to your own conclusion. See you soon.

The lady on Reception was friendly when we checked in and told us that we could borrow the towels outside reception if we were going to the Hot Springs. We had a room upstairs and it was clean but there was no air conditioning and it was a very hot day when we were in Hanmer. There was a fan but it wasn't much use as it was too small for the room. There was two hot plates in the room but I think that the whole place needs an upgrade of the facilities iIt is close to the main street and within walking distance of the Hot Springs. There is off street parking for your car. Food and meals are expensive in this area.

David and Janice were very helpful with providing accommodation that met our requirements plus. Their service throughout our stay was great and nothing was any trouble. They made it feel like we were staying with friends/family without being intrusive. They identified places we may like to see They were spot on with their suggestions. Would stay here again.

Pros:-
As previously stated this has not been modernized but was spacious, clean, comfortable and well maintained. It is also within easy walking distance to the thermal pools. Towels are available and free of charge to use at the thermal pools for guests.
Cons:-
No electric blankets on the single beds and the bathroom heater didn't work. Instructions for the heat pump would also have been good to have although we managed to get it going in the end.

I had a two night short stay in Hanmer. We were able to get an accessibility unit at the last minute. The hosts were extremely friendly, accomodating, and went out of their way to make us welcome. They even put out a reserved parking sign so my elderly mother could get out of our car and straight into our unit. They did this every time we went out. The motel was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Totally recommend this motel to anyone.

We are so glad we decided to detour to Hanmer Springs. The town is vibrant, arty, sophisticated and offering good eateries. Aspen Lodge motel is close to the centre but very quiet. Once there you hardly use a car as everything is within walking distance. The one bedroom unit was spacious and contained an extra single bed in the lounge. Wifi is free and easy to access. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you need for a few days.

We spent 4 days at the Apsen Lodge Motel in January 2021. We had a lovely upstairs studio unit. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the bed very comfy. The little balcony was the perfect spot to relax in the sunshine. The owners of the property were lovely - friendly and personable and happy to share information about the area. Would definitely recommend this as a perfect place to stay when you visit Hanmer.

Thanks for your review Aileen.We have noticed that the guests who have come for three to seven nights have treated it as a staycation, and have come away totally relaxed and refreshed. More so because of reduced travel and you can practically walk everywhere you need to in the village. You were a pleasure to have here, and we look forward to your return visit in the future.
