We stayed here for one night. It was a beautiful stay. The rooms were exceptionally clean and nicely furnished. We even kindly got an upgrade free of charge on arrival. Phil was welcoming and gave helpful advice and local tips. The living area is so homely, open fire blazing and plenty of board games. The kitchen is very clean and has a coffee machine available. I was impressed to see the kitchen even stocked guinness glasses too. The location is perfect as it is literally across the road from the hot pools. The staff kindly give you towels to use at pool. Thank you for lovely stay. It was kind, welcoming and homely. Sarah (Ireland) and Stephen (London)

The room was clean, warm and quiet and had all the usual extras plus more (tea, coffee percolator, fridge, wine glasses even a corkscrew. The bathroom had bottles of shampoo, conditioner and bodywash and hairdryer. We were able to regulate heating which was great on frosty cold mornings. TV with sky and netflix. Kitchen where you could make meals with a great selection of everything you would need. Open fire was beautiful. Host friendly and informative.

Great location and extremely friendly staff. Good sized room, comfy bed and use of kitchen and large lounge area was really great. Cool idea that they had special towels available that you could take to the hot pools.

Comfortable and well appointed rooms in a well situated spot in Hanmer Springs, really handy to the town. Adjacent to a restaurant and bar it was made for our party. There is a self contained kitchen where guests can self cater along with a dining area and a lovely lounge area with a nice big open fire. Across the road from the Hot pools, it is a very central place to stay.

My family and I had a fabulous three night stay here over Easter. We (husband, five year old and me) shared a studio unit upstairs. This motel is very modern. We appreciated the communal lounge and kitchen and the coffee and hot chocolate machine. It was a nice extension of our room. Our room was a little bit on the smallish side, however, it had everything we needed. Spending time downstairs in the communal area helped with this. The location of the motel is excellent. We never used our car while staying here. The hot pools are across the road and you can easily walk over in a hotel supplied towel. Heaps of restaurants and the supermarket within walking distance. Friendly and helpful host who let us know post stay that we had left our daughter's pyjamas behind. I would stay here again.

Exceptionally clean. Friendly staff, good facilities. Superbly located right over the road from the pools. Everything in the township was within walking distance. The room was compact but perfectly suitable and very clean. We stayed two nights and found it to be great value for money.

Our good friend booked the accommodation for us. It was perfect, comfortable and super convenient with everything we needed for a night stay before coming back to Chch. Adele and Andy were very friendly and loved the shared space area with board games for me and my husband to enjoy ☺️ Thank you!! Jane

Really friendly hotel in a great location in Hanmer, just opposite the pools. Rooms are really modern and clean. Air conditioning and a very quiet fridge to keep things cool. Rooms are very quiet, despite staying here over new year we weren't bothered by noise at any point. Beautiful communal kitchen for prepping food and ski lodge style lounge for relaxing in. Would highly recommend as great value for money accommodation. Would definitely stay again.

Spent 4 lovely relaxing nights here. The hosts were very welcoming and the place was spotlessly clean. We loved sitting in the sunny lounge in the mornings and moving round to sit by the lovely open fire in the afternoons. The location right opposite the hot pools was perfect with restaurants and shops very close by. Couldn't fault this place.
