A fantastic unit with great proportions, warm and spacious with a fantastic spa bath. A lovely greeting on arrival and so close to town and the pools. Highly recommend. The cheeseboard option is fantastic. Our room was nice and quiet despite being on the road end double glazing keeps the noise out and kept the room lovely and warm.

A welcome 'reminiscent of what NZ was once known for, keep it up, the room very nice, and immaculate, and as a past owner of a five star motel I am very particular. Decor lovely, the management both professional and pleasant. As a local new zealander traveling I like to think that they want me to return, and I shall....

After a little blip with our reservation (no fault of Tussock Peak Motor Lodge, but the booking website we used) we were looked after so well. Thank you so much. It made my trip with my mother and sister who were visiting from the UK perfect! Thanks again, Ill definitely be back!

Have stayed before, & right from booking through to leaving was a great experience. Freezing cold weather & the heating in our room had been turned on. Helpful at reception, dvds to watch. Really cosy winter stay, super.

Just recently stayed here with my Partner and we loved the place, we wouldn't stay anywhere else. It's the best place we've both stayed in Hanmer. Upon arrival we were greeted by really friendly staff who showed us to our Spa bath unit which was perfect, it was a large sized room compared to other places we have stayed at....

Location- just 2 mins walk away from Hanmers Spring Themal Pools. What can be better? Furnishing- very pleasant, modern and comfortable Beds- perfect Cooking facility - this is the reason why I did not give it an Excellent rating. We were given an old portable hotplate for cooking which is quite slow in heating up. Seems to be at least...

Fantastic accommodation. Probably the best accommodation we have stayed in in New Zealand. So well equipped and beautifully decorated that it was like being at home. Friendly staff. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Had a wonderful package deal put together by accommodation owners... which included a spa room, pool passes, local wine and a fabulous platter. Really clean and well presented... just a lovely experience and I wouldn't hesitate to book again.

been to Hanmer Springs a few times over the years and this hotel is very handy to all the amenities but far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle and noise.... The staff are very helpful and friendly and nothing is a bother for them. Only issues really were no sink in the kitchenette area but it...
