“superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

We have been in New Zealand for almost 5 years, use motels a lot and this was right up there. It was quiet, super size for a family of four, spa bath and a great price. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We plan to go back and will stay here. Bed was on the firm side which we personally prefer. Great nights sleep, across the rooms from the pools. Super time - thank you Glenalvon

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2012

The owners were great. Great location. I thought the room was only ok. Spacious yes but not as clean as I expected after reading the reviews. We had a leaky window in the bathroom. Wifi was non existent in our room. Nice but not great.

We were impressed with this motel. The studio unit was spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly, lending us towels for the hot pools. The heated towel rail in the bathroom and the nice heater in the main room meant that we could dry our bathing suits in time for the next day's trip to the hot pools. The motel is in the perfect location, being opposite the pools.

If there was one thing to improve, it would be to get more Sky channels! Otherwise a wonderful stay - would recommend.

We stayed at one of their basic studio units but the bed was comfortable. It is also conveniently located across the road from the thermal pools and walking distance to restaurants. The heater was on when we entered our room so that's lovely on a winter's day.

We had a fantastic stay, Dale welcomed us, washed our clothes for minimal cost. It is the people who make the place. Dale gave us 2 mini scooters, very cheap, he couldnt be more helpful, very clean, great location, close to springs and restuarants, etc. We are going back to stay again, driving from queenstown just to stay there, then back to queenstown.

A++ service from the very first phone call. Dale was friendly and accomodating. Arrived late at night and it was cold and was greeted by his lovely wife she gave us a map & recommended many spots to eat. She took us to our room and they were so kind and had the room heatd 4 us. Very cosy and clean. They were realy cool and up graded us wooohoooo. I would highly recommend Glenolvan excellent host, rooms are great, location is fantastic literally cross da road ur at the pools,literally 6 driveways up and ur at ur first eatn spot. Oh actually one driveway...Definitly be bak here. Thanks guys for a relaxing, stressfree stay. We will be sure to spread the word. Louise and Mark.

We arrived and were met by Dale, the most obliging owner. In fact he was so obliging he even washed and dried all our cycling gear! ( three people). This was exceptional service. The rooms were immaculate, very spacious, warm and very quiet. We were able to walk to all local amenities and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. No hesitation in reccomending this lodge. Next time in Hanmer we will ensure we stay here.
