Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Decides to go to Hanmer for the night and found this wonderful little place. We rang ahead and informed them we might be a little late. When we arrived our hosts had the heating on and the place toasty warm. Clean and tidy too. Will be back soon! Highly recommended.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

This motel is very handy to the pools, shops and eateries - but is also away from the noise. Our unit was very clean and tidy - a little dated and with a ridiculously small a TV. The shower's pressure was not very good, but having electric blankets was a nice touch. Tissues in the room would have been appreciated.
Staff are very warm, friendly and helpful. Appreciated the free wifi!

What a great small Motel.
Peaceful and quiet yet right in the centre of Hanmer Springs only five minutes from the pools.
We found the room clean and tidy and quite comfortable to relax in, very welcoming and warm.
The two reasons I didn't give it a perfect score was because of a small 21" TV and pillows thaat were too firm.
However we are already planning a return visit and would advise anyone to stay here
The staff are so friendly and welcoming.

clean room, spacious, well appointed rooms. Stayed 2 nights after a long drive through Molesworth. Just over the road from the hot pools, wander over wrapped in a towel (supplied by motel) . Close to town and wonderful restaurants

I choose this property for it's proximity to the Hot Springs. It is a small property; within walking distance of the restaurants/shops; the rooms spacious and clean; the decorations homely (not that that took away from our experience). Our host was welcoming and friendly. Towels were supplied to take to the Hot Springs. A very pleasant stay and very good value for money.

Spent a night recently here, it was just what we needed, quiete, and just across the road from the hot pools, fantastic service. The room we had was huge and the bathroom was massive. We totally enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

We had a very nice stay Glenalvon Lodge. Nice clean rooms. Friendly staff. Great location in walking distance of the Hanmer Hot Springs and the restaurants. We got towels to use for the springs. All in all nice.
