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.

As per uusual a great place to stay. Good units and very friendly and helpful staff. Quiet and peaceful yet close to the town and the walks in the forest area. The untimely snow made the experience even more special and we were able to stay warm. Ian & Jeanette, Nelson

We were Warmly greeted on our arrival and shown to our very clean spacious unit. It has a well equipped kitchenette with a stovetop, microwave and fridge. The beds were very comfortable and one bedroom had it’s own TV. I absolutely loved the private patio complete with a table and chairs where we enjoyed our evening meal in the warm evening sun

Modern clean well maintained units. Friendly reception and very helpful owners. Easy distance to hot pools. Will stay again when at Hanmer. Would not hesitate to recommend this motel to any one, could not fault anything. Plenty of eateries nearby with variety of choice. Suggest to older folk that they get a unit with no steps to access unit. Bob M.

We had a friendly welcome after a long drive and the check in was quick and easy. There was even a complimentary bottle of milk. The accommodation was spotless, with a generous supply of towels, materials for hot drinks etc. The location lives up to its name, with a beautiful view of the snow topped mountains. It's also a short walk into the town for a meal or groceries.

We were greeted by the warm and friendly manager on arrival and she never stopped serving us the whole time we were there. What an AMAZING place with stunning views of the valley and mountains from every window. We were lucky to have the honeymoon suite with the spa pool on the deck! The continental breakfast with hot almond croissants delivered to our rooms was delicious.

Loved staying here, great little unit with everything required for an overnight stay, including towels available in reception to go visit the hot pools. Was a reasonably cold night when we stayed here, but the heat pump was not required at all because the rooms were so warm anyway! Being Christchurch locals we will definitely have future trips to Hanmer and would definitely stay here again :)

Stayed in the two bedroom family unit. Absolutely perfect for us four, decent kitchen, big shower, very clean. Cute swing set out the back. Shower pressure nothing to write home about, and the bed was a bit too hard for my liking that’s all. Kids had no complaints and slept really well! Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

Steps up to the unit made access less than desirable, didn’t ask to move as this unit had the spa pool on the exterior covered deck. The spa pool meant the cost was at a higher level which was hard to justify. Facilities in the unit were fine, including dressing gowns.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit which was basic but was well built, insulated and well maintained. The only issue we encountered was the internet was only fast enough for messaging. Tested at 1.5Mbps at the best, slower or not working at all at worst. e.g. we could not make facetime voice or video calls, stream a movie, etc. In this price bracket I expect usable internet in the room. We had strong wifi so it seems to be their internet link rather than a wifi issue. If you don't need good internet then highly recommend this place.
