From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and shown to our rooms. Very helpful staff. The owner knew my name and was expecting us and greated me as I walked in the door by name. Beautiful accomodation, super comfortable with lovely finishing touches as chocolate on the bed.

We stayed for 2 nights as 2 couples in an apartment. (No 13). This was a lovely, spacious apartment, well equiped, has great outdoor space. The motel is very well situated close to the town centre, about 7 minutes walk. Would certainly recommend staying here.

Thanks Peter for your kind words, we really appreciate it. Our 2 bedroom units are certainly great for 2 couples and the outdoor courtyard is well received, especially on our warm summer evenings. Regards Alan & Sally

A real find in Hanmer as this is much better than a motel, with plenty of room, well stocked ie. plenty of towels tea, coffee etc, pool towels available. We had a very comfortable bed & a good 2 nights sleep as it is in a quiet area. Lovely hosts who even posted back my phone
