“Best location ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2012

We stayed for 2 nights at this motel, and found it to be very good. Pleasant upstairs room with nice decor. Very clean, and comfy bed and furnishings. Perfect location, just across the road from the hot pools & spa, and easy walk to the restaurants and cafes. Friendly staff. Only criticism would be that it was a bit noisy at night, from other guests talking loudly in the carpark!!

Room Tip: Definitely get an upstairs room.

We chose this place due to price and convenience to hot springs, also it was far superior to Top Ten Park and cheaper! Absolutely great room, clean, comfy beds, quiet and fabulous girl on reception....very helpful and 2 hour free wifi. It's also across the road from a lovely park where we carried our cups of tea at days end. I would definitely stay here again.

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..
