Clean comfortable well appointed. Handy to all amenities. We visit Hanmer frequently and had not stayed at Tussock Peak before, but will certainly do so in the future. Inexpensive, and after arriving at short notice, we were made very welcome.

Hanmer Springs is a beautiful small town with an amazing thermal pool complex. We stayed at a lovely motel, very clean, modern and well appointed. Parking was outside our door, and the town and access to pubs and restaurants was only minutes away.

Thanks Lesley, we're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We are indeed close to everything, a great range of restaurants in short walking distance and also activities, shops and cafes, (yet still a quiet location for a good night's sleep).

We stayed in an executive spa unit as part of their Honeymoon Package. There is nothing I can fault about the room, it was immaculate. Everything was clean and tidy, the attention to detail was amazing. Our pool towels were folded into swans, an ice bucket for wine was prepared, and fudge and a giant toblerone was also included.

The location is great however as Hanmer is a small place you never have too far to go. The hosts were very helpful, towels for the pools...

We've just checked in a couple of hours ago but have to admit to being underwhelmed. Maybe it's me and I need to start being more careful but just accepting a Trip Advisor rating doesn't mean as much as it used to. I don't normally go around looking for things that aren't satisfactory but I find myself looking around here...

Hi Virginia, We certainly don't rest on our laurels, so your valuable feedback is most appreciated. Of our 14 units, there are 2 that are classified as accessibility units, and these have showers designed with the correct slope level for wheelchair access. From your description I can see you stayed in one of these units. We are "blessed" with very...

Dear Pauline, The quantity of amenities provided is estimated based on average usage. As an accommodation provider with an Eco-friendly focus, we try hard to reduce waste to a minimum out of respect for our beautiful NZ environment. However, we recently received another feedback that a little extra shampoo would be great, so now we provide more shampoo. (Similarly, we...
