When we planned our trip we initially wanted to go to Kaikoura, however due to the road being out between Blenheim and Kaikoura were forced to go via Hammer Springs. We left booking accommodation to the last minute hoping we could find a way through. I called a number of places along the route to Christchurch looking for accommodation and...

We've stayed here a couple of times. The staff are friendly. The rooms standard except the spa pool room. Videos are available for rainy days. However, spa bath in spa room was dirty. Overall the place is basic with a kitchenette, beds are warm and comfy and suits most needs.

As a group of 9, we required two rooms for this stay, Nothing was too much trouble - we even received a call on the morning of our arrival to check on the dynamics of the group and how we would like the beds made up! Rooms are large, extremely well furnished and provide a very high level of comfort....

The owners/managers were outstanding hosts, nothing was a bother. They helped me out several times with my young son, which was very much appreciated. The rooms were...

We enjoyed a couple of nights while visiting the hot springs ( well worth a visit ) and have to say we were made most welcome, good room facilities with a spa bath and lots of helpful advise I would say this motel while the room we had was a little smaller than average was exceptional value

We stayed here overnight and the only complaint I have is that it was not a long enough stay! We had been given a recommendation by another motel and had booked the room with hot tub. What a room! The room has all facilities necessary to have a lovely stay. The room was spacious and very comfortable. We ordered in...

Wonderful place to stay after several days camping on DOC sites . Very welcoming and accommodating as we arrived early. Good value. This is the 4th time we have stayed here over 10 years and have never been disappointed.

A very clean and modern Motel, with everything you require, in a perfect position for the town. The proprietors were very helpful with suggestions of where to eat and were spot on with their choices. We have stayed in many Motels in New Zealand over the past ten years and this one is up with the best

This motel is situated on the main road (and seemingly the only road) in to Hanmer Springs, and is easy to locate as a result. It is approximately 600 yards away from the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and is very easy to walk to. Despite being next to a busier road, there isn't any road noise in the accommodation and...
