“Very Handy”
Reviewed 20 November 2012

We stayed here for one night only. But the motel was very handy for the things we did in 24 hours. It is two minutes away from the heated pools and the restaurants are a minute away. The beds ,bathroom and kitchen facilities are good. We had the upper level so we no noise of other people above us. The free internet is great. Overall a very nice place.

Tussock Peak is very comfortable and clean and the service is fantastic! Our clothes were washed, dried and folded within a couple of hours at a small cost. Complimentary internet and paper. Great location too. Highly recommended!

The location of tussock peak is awesome, a short 5 minute walk to the pools and restuarants etc. the rooms were ok. The bathroom is prone to flooding when the shower is on but otherwise comfortable. the staff were helpful. we had a ground floor room to the "balcony area" was not really of much use, especially as the midges were everywhere!

Hanmer Springs is a very picturesque location and I assume in winter it would be a winter wonderland. There are several hot pools and in winter these would be fantastic. The area is surrounded by snow capped mountains. The small village of Hanmer Springs is geared towards tourists and has several restaurants and other facilities. Tussock Peak Motor Lodge is a comfortable but more or less a simple motel. Rooms are clean and comfortable and in winter these need to be heated as even in "summer" we needed it. There is no restaurant but breakfast, I assume a continental breakfast, can be ordered. Dinner and lunch need to be had at other establishments. The staff are very helpful and offer good advice about what is around. Overall a good experience.

Room Tip: Unable to recommend as we stayed in 1 ground floor room only.

Tussock Peak Motor lodge was walking distance to the hot pools and shops, it had everything that we needed while we were in Hanmer Springs. WIFI was free. Lots of room for our daughter to run around in the room..

This lodge in Hanmer has decent sized rooms with a view and is within easy walking distance to the pools and the centre of town. The spa bath was a bonus and the room had a small fridge for our breakfast things and limited kitchen with sandwich maker and microwave which served us well for breakfast and lunches. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: rooms upstairs have some views and away from the road are quieter.

I hadn't booked anything in Hanmer Springs but I looked at 3 other places before I saw this one. This room won because it was big, bright and beautiful with a big window. There was also a spa bath, a kitchen and a dining table and chairs so we enjoyed breakfast in our room.
