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.

Lovely spot - peaceful and quiet. Room was very spacious and nicely appointed. Had everything needed for extended family stay. 10 min walk from the main street. Friendly hosts. Would highly recommend.

Spotlessly clean, spacious and quiet. Our room had everything that you might need. Monique was extremely helpful arranging our rooms. It was an 8 minute walk into the village with all its amenities. Fabulous surroundings. Would definitely recommend.

Great place to stay. Staff super friendly and helpful though was asked if I wanted my unit serviced or not - felt put in the spot. No movie channel and wifi limited to a ridiculous amount - not enough to even watch a family movie. The units were roomy, had a nice fireplace. Bit rundown but tidy. Playground really not great.

We had a great 2-night stay at the Forest Peak Motel in a cozy 1-bedroom unit. We chose this place because it is dog friendly and we like to travel with our 2 wee dogs. We found the unit to be comfortable and well maintained. We did have a problem with the panel heater however the management quickly remedied this with an additional portable heater. The Wifi internet was good however we had to get new vouchers (free) on several occasions. The location is good, about a 5-10min walk from the main shops and restaurants. Overall we had a good stay and would definitely recommend this place to other travellers.

Super friendly staff, tidy unit and we were super pleased that we were able to bring our well behaved dog with us to stay in the unit alongside us during our stay. The reception lady offered advice on places we could take our dog for walks and the cleaners were friendly and asked if we needed extra towels etc when walking past. Units are clean and cozy with access to extra blankets. Will definitely return here again, could not fault the place.

We only had one night at the Forest Peak Motel and wished we could have had more. We were given a very pleasant welcome. The motel was clean and had everything we needed including a full oven. It was very convenient to walk to the hot pools and the centre of town. If we are ever back in Hamner Springs we would definitely stay there again.

Firstly the owner operator is very very lovely and the room was very comfortable and tidy. There was only a couple of things that I feel need to be faulted. The main one was the drains that didn't drain out, had to turn off the shower to allow the base to drain so that water wouldn't go all over the floor, and then finished my shower off. None of the drains we're working properly. The second is while I know the salt and pepper were complementary, the pepper shaker had no pepper in it, and the pepper shaker looked like it hadn't been cleaned for some time. We did enjoy our stay and do plan on returning as it was quiet and off-street parking.

Not quite sure how this place has such a high rating - 4.5 dots when I stayed. There is nothing wrong with, it but it is very dated in all respects - general age, kitchen and bathroom etc. My outside sitting area was in the car park. Clean. I paid less for much better further south on my trip although that was on the West Coast not Hanmer Springs.

Nice quiet motel. Clean & tidy & everything we needed to enjoy our weekend. Our friend stayed in the next unit so we had a great get together. A short drive to the village to the many cafes, restaurants and hot pools

We stayed here with my 80 year old nan, her 85 year old sister and two dogs. The family cabin was spacious clean and warm, the beds were comfortable too. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly- great customer service! The location is great, only a short walk to town. The cabin itself is wooden and kept us warm all night. We will definitely be back- it’s hard to find dog friendly accommodation, especially this good!
