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)

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.
