“Great motel”
Reviewed 17 July 2012 via mobile

I thoroughly recommend this motel. It is good value, comfortable and clean, with excellent customer service. WiFi is free and extra touches including complimentary morning newspapers and loan of dvd's enhanced my stay and overall experience.

Stayed July 2012, travelled with family

Reviewed 20 June 2012

This was the first motel we stayed in during our trip around the south island of New Zealand.
We were very impressed. The rooms very very comfortable, clean and the facilities were very good. Each room had sky tv, kitchen and laundry facilities.
Excellent location and friendly staff. Just a short walk from restaurants, shops, bars and the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools (which were brilliant).
The town had a good community feel about it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

We stayed at Tussock Peak for 3 nights and thought it was fantastic. The rooms were really nice looking with a big comfortable double bed and a huge TV that had sky movies and sky sports channels and the bathroom had a nice powerful shower as well as a large jacuzzi.
Its location was great as well, it was only a couple of minutes walk away from the Springs and all the restaurants and bars in town and from the balcony there was a stunning view of the surrounding mountains.
There were laundry facilities and also DVDs that could be borrowed from reception.
The free paper outside your room door every morning was a nice bonus.
Can't recommend this place enough.

Great place to take friends, great location and good value for the size of the two bedroom suite we booked to accommodate ourselves and another couple of friends from Auckland. They hadn't been to Hanmer before and we only wanted a night there so baches were out. Managed to find this place for $230 a night and it definitely was worth it. Enjoyed ourselves there. Would be a good place for couples with only one child each as each bedroom also had a single bed in it.

A cute, clean lodge. We had a second floor studio accommodation. The room is described as a king spa studio and it wasn't cramped. We also had a balcony which looked out over the main road. We were warned about the traffic noise prior to accepting the room, but found the "noise" to be of little or no distraction (particularly when the sliding door was closed and later at night, non-existent). The lodge is within walking distance of the hot springs and the town center. The room had wi-fi. There were also laundry facilities on the premises but did not take advantage of them.
