5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

What a fabulous motel. Vary clean and well appointed. Large spa bath. Lovely garden and surrounds. Very friendly hosts. Lots if free DVDs to borrow. Warm with a heat pump. The dogs are gorgeous. Free towels for the hot pools was great as we hadn't brought any and towels are $5 each to hire at the pools. A great place to stay.

We were fortunate enough to stay here at the recommendation of the hosts at another motel which was fully booked. What a great recommendation it turned out to be! We had the 'studio' (slightly less expensive) at the very front of the property with fabulous views of the golf course. Everything about it was first rate and although called a 'studio' it would easily accommodate a family. It was clean, well-equipped, quiet and the hosts were wonderful. I would recommend this to friends and family.

A truly lovely place to stay, particularly for families. Everything you could possibly need is catered for or is readily available. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the dogs are a welcome addition and great distraction for kids! Accommodation is clean and modern and the grounds are lovely. Easy walking distance into town and the hot pools. We had originally planned to stay two nights but extended it to 4 as we were having such a lovely time and found it very hard to leave.

We stayed at the Alpine Springs Motel in mid March and found it to be one of the best places we have stayed at. The room was very comfortable and the views over the golf course to the mountains was spectacular.

As we stayed in the 3 bedroom bungalow, we were located next to the beautiful and well kept garden area with outdoor seating and gazebo.

Each bedroom was provided with an LCD TV as well as a TV and DVD in the lounge with SKY access to all. Wireless internet access was available with the purchase of a prepaid voucher from reception. There is an extensive free DVD collection to choose from located at reception also. The complimentary welcome basket of goodies was most appreciated and was refilled daily. Our host Robert was very friendly and the 3 Golden Retrievers made firm friends with the children.

Alpine Springs was very peaceful and the perfect place to stay to forget about recent events at home. Highly recommended.

The township is a 10-15 minute walk or about a 2 minute drive from the motel.

Room Tip: Roon 2 was an independent bungalow with 3 bedrooms. Ideal for the family. Very peaceful.

We arrived to a very warm welcome by Robert and were shown to our lovely well appointed room. The quality of the fittings and furnishings was excellent. It was as if everything we could have needed had been thought of. Even a pannini maker was in the kitchen. Towels were supplied from reception, for our use when visiting the Hot Pools. We loved the fact our apartment was a stand alone unit. This makes such a difference. The grounds are lovely and we enjoyed a bottle of wine in the gazebo overlooking the golfcourse. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

This was supposedly an executive suite. Although room was pleasant did not feel it was worth the $190 per night price tag. Old fashioned TV, poor sound quality. Would have expected bathrobes.
Loved the three golden retrievers

Complimentary bathrobes for use during your stay are available from reception as mentioned in the information folder located in each unit. If you compare a similar room at other 4 and a half star establishments in Hanmer Springs our prices are in line with their charges and they are sometimes without the facilities we have on offer such as air conditioning, complimentary 500+ DVD library, 14 sky channels, complimentary pool towels, in room safe, fully equipped kitchens and portable bbq’s, welcome basket, private terraces with outdoor seating, and an acre of gardens with seating all around with views straight down the golf course to the mountains. Most other establishments will also be a block building with people staying above you, below you and either side of you with no gardens.We have checked the sound quality on the television and can find nothing wrong with it, shame you didn’t mention this during your stay as you may have had one of the settings wrong. Prior to you staying we had already started an upgrade of televisions and this will continue until all units have been done.
