We decided to stay in Hanmer Springs for the night while travelling round North Canterbury. From the moment we drove into this gorgeous little town we were captivated! The motel was easy to find & as others have said within easy walking distance to the pools, cafes & shops. We stayed in chalet 10(with spa bath), which was self contained, clean, comfortable & very well equipped. Pat gave us a warm welcome & that was certainly a lovely start to our stay. The chalet itself was a great size for 2 with a seperate bedroom & bathroom. The spa bath was a treat but be warned it takes ages to fill (esp. the hot water), so start well before you want to hop in!
The birdsong, views & mountain air were fantastic & would have been perfect if not for the traffic noise from the road just down from our chalet. That said though it was very quiet at night as the traffic eased away & was by no means a constant flow during the day!
All in all we would recommend this motel as a very comfortable, clean place to stay with outstanding service & views!
