Having been to Hanmer a few time this was definitely one of the best locations to explore the town, the rooms have everything you need and the well equipped kitchen is a bonus if you choose not to eat out or get caught in the rain like we did.. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, will definitely be back.

From the moment Alice checked us in , this was a great experience, Unit 2, clean and had everything you needed, Even left our room the next morning to clean last in case we returned for another night, which we did. Lovely girls and have told many to come and stay.

I was sooo so pleased we chose to stay at the Alpine Garden Motel, the place was clean and tidy, everything we needed was in our room, extra blankets, an extra heater ect ect, I honestly couldn't fault the place. On arrival and departure, the ladies were so incredibly friendly, it felt like home. The room was SO homely (Room 5!) I never write reviews, but I just had to for this place. We WILL be back, and I have told so many people about your beautiful motel already xx THANK YOU! The fact that other reviewers commented on wonky steps and old tv is ludicrous, they need to get a life. We did hear the neighbors baby crying throughout the night but tha'ts ok, they would of heard ours crying too lol, if you want a quiet room, request the room with no neighbors at the end of the row

We booked this motel , as we needed a family unit for 4. The motel and the unit were nice and the staff was very good . The rooms were clean and well presented. Only 2 things put me off and this would have been a 5 star review. The day we arrived , it was a sweltering 33 degree Celsius and we asked for another fan , and they told us that it’s one fan per room . So somehow we managed to get through the afternoon and evening till sunset. It seems the motel is more built for winter times as the rooms were very warm and had very thick and heavy curtain ( I’m not complaining about them.) my son had real trouble to get through that day . 2nd thing , we read in the rules and policy folder that no curries can be cooked as they leave a smell. It something the mgmt must look into as presently more than 5 percent of New Zealand’s population is from the subcontinent. So should this policy be kept or changed . We abided by thier rules , but it something, we would like to keep in mind next time we go to Hanmer springs. Apart from these 2 things. It is a good motel. We enjoyed our time in Hanmer springs.

Chose this motel (2 nights) as not on main road frontage. We stayed in Room 9 which was quiet and well equipped. Comfy bed. A lot of condensation first morning; not sure why as not a cold night. Had to open all windows and door. One or two latches a bit loose. Car park for our unit not close so we got a bit wet during downpour on second evening. Short walk to the pools. Pool towels a bonus Unit was not serviced (it was supposed to be); staff member on duty was not sure why this was overlooked. No big deal, we just had to replenish one or two items from reception. Went to pools three times over the two days. "Oldies" pass cost $38 each plus an extra $4 for the third trip. AA Card apparently would have been a help but we did not take. Plenty of lunch food options at the pool cafe. Dined in the two evenings at "Spice Village" and "Monteiths"; enjoyed both.
