Stayed in a family apartment. Very spacious and comfortable with a nice view over the mountains and the adjoining green paddocks. Spacious with good kitchen facilities and large TV in lounge area as well as small TV in main bedroom. Very pleasant for staying a few days.

We stayed one night & were made to feel very welcome. We were told about great eating places and forest walks. Our room was clean and comfy. A five minute easy walk to the town centre & just up the road from a great pub.

My partner and I stayed here with another couple in a family suite, three seperate sleeping areas and large dining/lounge area. Clean and tidy, however the room smelt of old cigarette smoke... the manager was lovely and polite. I would go back again.

We stayed here for one night for our visit to Hanmer Springs. The Owners were very friendly and showed us how the Heater works and recommend places for Dinner and Breakfast place that has great coffee. The Motel was clean and well set out, and very quiet, with an easy walk to town. We would stay here again.

this motel was great, stayed for 2 nights, the owner was friendly and helpful, room clean and fully equipped with sky, kitchen facilities, tea and coffee and toiletries. we were given milk on arrival, dvds were available to borrow for small donation, there was some outside space for each room and the location was brilliant too. I would recommend.

Six of us stayed in a two bedroom unit. The living area was a good size with a proper double bed in the living area which added space and somewhere to sit. The unit was well equipped. The owners were friendly and it was quiet. I slept like a baby. Close to town and the pools.

Just loved this place, spotlessly clean with all the amenities I needed for my stay. The view from my room was breathtaking. Was welcomed by the fabulous Javier who made me feel at home straight away. Jane and Richard made sure my stay in Hanmer Springs was all that I could have wished for.
