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.

The staff were incredibly helpful, I arrived late and they touched base with all the info I needed. I then left a few items behind and they were so genuine and helpful to get them back to me. Highly recommend staying here on your next trip to Hanmer, you will be well looked after!

This place is very dated. It's about a 20min walk into town. We were upgraded to a king room after request to the pleasant male receptionist; however the room was musty, and very outdated with various cigarette dump sand points along the way and one on the veranda with butts still it which was awful. The view on the veranda was nice however it overlooked the neighbours yard with noisy kids. The outside table was weather beaten and unsightly. The bathroom had cracks in the wall and the towel rail was dodgy. It certainly needs a revamp. The bed was comfortable however, the fridge in working order, the TV worked, but to be listed as 4* is not appropriate. The buffet breakfast however was ordinary with the packet scrambled eggs (in my opinion) which we found during our 2wk nz stay - packet mush scrambled eggs. The staff were pleasant enough. If you're a smoker, you will fit right in with the various dump points scattered everywhere. We will stay in town if we revisit.

Had a great experience at this hotel. Loved our rooms with Mountain View’s and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was above the par with many options. Dinner was yum. Stayed during the long weekend. Thank you to the staff for our enjoyable weekend in Hanmer springs.

Good accommodation. The heater and the fan in the bathroom are really noisy. Service is good. Didn't like the restaurant even though staff are very friendly but my steak was overcooked and a big bone attached with plenty of grizzel in between. Not good enough for a $50 steak. Got a discount though. Rooms were tidy but our mountain view was obscured by row of trees. 😕😎They say they got sky but only a few channels are subscribed to. All in all sort of ok.

This was our third trip to the Hamner Retreat and it's our regular place to stay. The staff were extremely accommodating as we were slightly early and gave us the best room in the motel complex. This room is an upstairs room for the view of the mountains. They lent me an HDMI cable for a live stream! The service was always friendly and we would definitely send a friend there. The free breakfast at the restaurant always a highlight and the rooms are spacious and clean! Miharo! (Awesome) T & M

Nice room and good service. The buffet breakfast covered a range of bacon, scrambled eggs, toasts and cereals. Would have loved for the food to be hotter and plates heated. The walkway upstairs could be spiced up with some pots and plants. Our kitchen had everything we needed and it only took a few minutes to drive to the pools. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Very spacious room, with huge bathroom! Amazing views and very clean. Exactly what was needed for a short stop over on our NZ road trip. All the comforts we needed. The service from staff was great. Onsite parking and complimentary wifi was appreciated.

Easy to find on arrival, parking provided. Voucher towards a meal at the five stags (free drink with meal) and free breakfast. Room spacious and clean, however it had an underlying odour, we couldn't get hot water for a shower or bath despite trying for 15 minutes, double bed was two king singles pushed together and inadequate bedding for winter. Room was noisy from other rooms bathroom fans and there was a glowing green night light/ smoke alarm all night above our bed. Reception not openon the morning so unable to report these things sadly. Key drop box.
