“Do not be fooled.....”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

A utilitarian exterior conceals well-appointed, well maintained and spotlessly clean units. Stayed one night and found the accommodation well situated in the High Street within walking distance of the Pool and cafes. Private balconies add a nice touch to that twilight glass of wine. Only constructive critisicisms would be the fabric headboards (a pet hate) scatter cushions on the bed (they normally end up on the floor) and the unit could do with a better situated mirror - next to the kitchen cabinet perhaps? Although I thoroughly enjoyed the Spa bath I did cringe at the amount of water it took to fill the bath. Well worth a visit

Room Tip: Unit 14 faces the street and park - excellent people watching spot

We enjoyed our stay at this nicely decorated hotel over the road from the very relaxing hot pools & a short walk to the cafes. We had a view of the church & the spring blossom from the small balcony in the sun.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have a view

we stayed here, courtesy of my lovely parents, for 1 night as part of a Hanmer trip. Its a great place to stay, everything you need is there. as it was winter the electric blankets on all beds were very welcome. lovely set up and very clean and comfy, would stay again if lucky enough to be in NZ again soon...

We stopped for one night, got a really good rate on a 2 bedroom unit. Bright, modern and well appointed. One of the nicer motels that we have stayed in during our travels arround the Island. Hosts were very accomodating with helping us get our laundry done, lots of nice little touches such as a newspaper in the morning.
I would definately come back again.

We stayed one night and walked to the hot pools on both days as it was so close.restaurants and supermarket were close by and the upstairs unit was comfortable and quiet. Unfortunately o trim milk was on offer so we had to have blue milk as they had run out!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have nice views
