The perfect place to get away and unwind. The room was nice and private and very comfortable. The only regret is not staying two nights to make use of the spa bath! James was fantastic and made sure our stay was memorable. Will definately be back.

The Alpine Garden Motel is situated in a great location and a very easy walk to everything in town. Convenient yet nice and quiet. We liked our time in Hanmer Springs. The kids loved the Thermal pools and mini golf. Owners are friendly and helpful.

Studio room with great view of hills beyond motel. Rate for two people was good, room was made up the next day, spa bath included in separate bathroom. Facilities good for one or two night stay in this studio room. Comfortable bed and quiet being at the end of the motel units. Hence the view.

A quick get away, without the children, with my bestie from Brisbane! Found this motel was very central,( over the road from the hot pools). Extremely nice hosts, very helpful indeed. Room was clean, spacious. Shower was a little on the small side for my larger framed friend. But overall top marks!

Our room was lovely and clean and warm! Just perfect for us! A short evening stroll the main street for dinner. The supply of extra towels is a bonus. Helpful and friendly staff. Loved the garden setting, even took some photos.

This little motel is a great location for a good price, walking distance to all the main eatery's and hot pools. Towels for the pools come with the motel so saves on one less thing to bring which is a nice added extra! Tidy room - well equipped with cooking facilities if you needed it too.

Very nice room, great shower and a warm room. Comfy bed and nice teas and things. Was close to the village, and walking distance of the thermal pools (also provided towels for the pools). The owner was very helpful the next morning, explaining where we needed to go to head for Picton, and also hand delivered the morning paper.
