An excellent place to stay with conveniently located Forest walks and friendly helpful hosts. The room size was very large with a large spa bath & a separate shower booth plus a little private backyard and a bbq. The 12 noon check out time was most welcome also. Henry & Marla Tun Sydney Australia

We went there for a night and it was lovely. Staff was friendly and the room was cozy. The items equipped in the room are well thought of (eg. a heater to hang and dry clothes, full kitchen...). It was a lovely motel and we would definitely return!

Due to the earthquake we had to change our travel plans which involved driving through Hanmer. We booked with only 3 days notice and could not believe our luck to find such a luxurious apartment in a quiet residential area but only minutes walk from the town and thermal baths. We were able to borrow towels for the thermal baths,...

This is a very nice unit. I appreciate that it comes equipped with a full kitchen, a powerful heater in the bathroom and an air con unit in the room. The unit is very spacious, bed is supremely comfortable and there is a really nice jacuzzi bathtub in the bathroom. There is plenty of hot water as well for bathing....

Lovely motel in a peaceful location just around the corner of the very pretty village of hanmer springs. Shops and restaurants nearby, we had a takeaway from Mr Yunan which we had delivered. Our motel room was very clean and comfortable. We very much enjoyed the spa which was in the village.

We had such a wonderful stay, it was so quiet, clean and a great place for a romantic getaway. We love it how it is so close to all of the restaurants, shops and the hot pools. The best thing for us though is being able to relax in the big spa bath.

This is the only place we will now stay in at Hanmer. Location is perfect, quiet off the main road yet only walking distance to everything. Great room and the bonus of having a spa bath. Hosts very friendly and accommodating.
