Excellent Stay in Hanmer Springs

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Oct 2022
I had a two night short stay in Hanmer. We were able to get an accessibility unit at the last minute. The hosts were extremely friendly, accomodating, and went out of their way to make us welcome. They even put out a reserved parking sign so my elderly mother could get out of our car and straight into our unit. They did this every time we went out. The motel was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Totally recommend this motel to anyone.
Date of stay: October 2022
Room Tip: Larger units are upstairs. We had an access unit downstairs.

We had a wonderful time at the Aspen Lodge and would recommend it whole-heartedly! We were a multi-generational group (aged 5-72) spread over three rooms and everyone was happy! Megan was an amazing host and went out of her way to make us all feel welcome. Lovely touches included a free DVD library, a box of towels to borrow for the hot pools and fresh local milk in the fridge. The fact that the hot pools and Hanmer town centre were a tiny stroll away was an added bonus. It was a lovely cosy place to stay in a stunning location and we’ll definitely be back!

Fabulous hosts - Megan is an absolute delight. So helpful and accommodating. The rooms were lovely and warm when we arrived on a cold afternoon, clean and comfortable. They have everything you need. Fab having swimming towels provided. The town, restaurants, cafes and pools within easy walking distance from the motel. We stayed two nights and two weeks later returned when the roads were closed further North and we couldn't get through. Would definitely stay there again. Highly recommend.

Room tip: Lovely accessible units on the ground if you can't stairs

Clean rooms and great service!
Dave carried all of our gear up (which was a lot!) and put it in our room.
We went for the 2 bedroom unit and it was great.
We recommend this to people passing through!!

We had a very pleasant 3 night stay in the One bedroom spa unit. It was very clean and spacious with a very comfortable bed. The owners are just fabulous and nothing is a problem. They have also just put in new Mountain Bike storage racks and bike cleaning station, which is an added bonus in Hanmer Springs. The location is super close to the town centre too.

Room tip: The one bedroom unit has a balcony overlooking the beautiful Queen Mary Grounds.
