Great location and lovely warm comfortable rooms. Everything you need and only 2 minutes walk to the pool or centre of town. A smidge on the dated side decor wise but at such a reasonable price really not an issue. Lovely hosts - would highly recommend.

Nice and handy, good room rate, and perfectly adequate place to stay. The place is a little on the older side but the host was extremely helpful and informative. Location excellent being right opposite the hot pools. Would return again.

We stayed in this little motel. The service was excellent. Nothing fancy but very clean and affordable and the location is great, directly across from the pool. The room is very spacious and the bed was comfortable. Will stay here again!!

This was a great clean and simple place to stay In Hanmer Springs, at an affordable price. It’s directly across the street from the hot springs park, and a short walk to every restaurant in this charming little town. The only downside was that the wifi was not working the night we stayed.

My husband had just ridden through torrential rain through Authurs Pass and the Lewis Pass on our way to Hamner Springs to spend a night. We arrived drenched through, the host was lovely. He showed us our room my husband then asked when the Hotpools close and did he know the price. The price for the hotpools was ridiculous and...

Booked at the last minute as we were not sure if we would stay in Hanmer. Got the last unit. It was roomy, clean and very comfortable. Only stayed one night but would have liked to stay longer. Good place to stay and Dale was very friendly and helpful.

The motel is in the Centre of town , almost opposite the Thermal Pool entrance. The studio unit was clean, comfortably furnished, with all amenities functioning. Parking was just outside the unit. It was a quiet spot considering it is in the town centre. The host was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this as a place to stay...

We stayed for one night recently as part of a group cycle tour. Dale was well prepared for 10 tired & dirty cyclists - so much so that he did our laundry!!! 😁👏 The rooms were spacious and very clean. Perfect continental breakfast in each room. Dale was super helpful & cheerful - wish all moteliers had his enthusiasm.

Enjoyed our stay at Hamner. We just wanted a one night stay so we wanted to be in town. Nice pleasant motel and were happy with what the room had. It was summer but still cool (for Aussies) so fan heater was used....which was a bit yucky...I don't like the blowie heat - however room held heat well so did...
