Clean facilities and great staff. This was a short stop over for 2days simply to recharge from our travelling in the South Island . We managed to book a package which included access to the Hanmer springs hot pools and accommodation at the Hot spring Motor lodge which worked out to be cheaper than booking both separately. We found the...

One of the best places we stayed on the South Island, warm friendly staff. Accommodation - huge booked 2 bedroom apartment which came with lounge, dining and balcony areas. Bathroom was really modern with spa bath, bedrooms really comfortable and clean. View from balcony was great. Even though this is a bit of a walk from the main town area...

In response to the pleas of local businesses to support them post earthquake, we decided to head south from Nelson and do just that. First stop was Hanmer Springs and the Hot Springs Motor Lodge. We were very impressed with the lovely big rooms, friendly helpful staff and general ambience of the place. We appreciated the little touches such as...

5 stars in all respects. Professional and caring managers. Spotless room appointed to a very high standard. While in our 60s a room with a spa bath is always welcomed. The attached restaurant pleased us too despite other reviews. Will come back.

Having come to Hanmer in response to their plea for people to keep coming after the earthquake, I was surprised to find the place was very busy and less than capable of dealing with the numbers. Both nights we went to the restaurant we were told there would be a delay although the place was virtually empty. Staff were international...

Rooms very spacious, clean and well-appointed. Nice and quiet. Super comfy bed, roomy bathroom. Great value, will hopefully get back here again! Hanmer Springs is my favourite place in the South Island! Last time I was here was 17 years ago and I can't believe how much it has changed, but it hasn't lost any of it's charm.

Hanmer Springs was a last minute addition to our plans after having to cancel Kaikoura in the aftermath of the earthquake. We stayed for one night in a standard studio at the Hot Springs Motor Lodge, and were really pleased with our choice of accommodation. The motel is about 10mins walk from the thermal baths, and towels were provided to...

We arrived after a long drive and were processed at reception in under 60 seconds which I think is the record for getting me into accommodation. The motel has king sized beds and we were provided with a fold out bed for the wee one. The rooms are very spacious, modern, and clean. The king size bed has ample pillows,...

We stayed two nights. Great spacious room. Awesome shower pressure! Very clean and comfortable. Really close to town and friendly staff who were very helpful. Staff rang and organised a massage for us in town which was great since we hadn't gotten around to doing that. Gave us extra towels for the pools to which was great.

We spent two nights here and really enjoyed the experience. The front desk staff is incredibly friendly and positively great about recommendations for things to do in town. The hotel location is excellent. It's not right in the center of town, but is an easy 5-10 minute walk from it. Personally, I liked strolling home from dinner and enjoying the...
