I have never seen motel rooms as bad anywhere in New Zealand. I cannot believe that somewhere like Hanmer which is quite a tourist area has something so bad. This place needs to be rebuilt....completely. Thankfully we were able to find a good place. We usually book ahead but as we have been exploring for the past week we decided...

Unclean room. Got woken up before 10 am for room service when they say they're come between 12-2pm. Kitchen facilities broke on us, we then had to buy more before we left. Rock hard bed meaning hardly any sleep. Got a phone call early morning of the day we were leaving Christchurch to head to hanmer telling us we need...

Although manager pleasant enough and checked up on issues with room the overall 'complex' needs a MAJOR overhall. Very dated and in need of renovating(in and out of rooms). Our room smelt of curry (no amount of room freshener or open windows/doors could alleviate the problem), the office very untidy and we were greeted by bags (a lot) of recycling...

Rubbish at my front door, curtains broken, room smell stuffy. Resection was friendly and helpful but that was the end of the good experience. I travelled through NZ and payed less for places that offered a lot more.

My husband and I had not booked any accommodation prior to arriving in Hanmer Springs, so I was very grateful to be able to get a room at the Larchwood Motel at the last minute. The room was $110 and given the prices in the area for other hotels, my expectation weren't high. The gentleman at reception was very friendly...

Good value, good beds, lots of room. Walls a bit thin and could hear people going up the stairs next dooor and talking etc, but fortunately they were not a noisy group so it didn't affect our sleep. Good location, east walk to hot pools.

This is the second time my wife and I spent our weekend at Larchwood Motel. It only took us two hours to drive from Christchurch to Hanmer Springs to enjoy the wonderful countryside lifestyle. The motel was quiet and comfortable around here. The manager was very friendly and helpful, and the price was affordable. My wife and I loved to...

I went onto a vacation to New Zealand with my son, and we chose to stay in Larchwood Motel for a couple of days in Hanmer Springs. We stayed in room # 5, and it was very pleasant. The room had two floors. I slept on the top while my son stayed at bottom. We were so happy that it...

Our group of 4 booked 2 rooms at Larchwood Motel for 2 nights. We got Room 18, a "Standard Studio" for $115.00 / night. Our friends got Room 6, a "1 Bedroom Unit" for $135.00 / night. We now wish we paid the extra $20.00 too. First, the location is good, close to Dog Stream Walk and 5 - 10...

Located at very quiet corner, just steps away from the Dog stream park. Had a very relaxing walk there with the kids. One minute drive to town center and the thermal pool. The staffs were friendly and helpful.The room we stayed in were clean and tidy with a bit of character. Had a very pleasant stay. It's totally worth it....
