The rooms were very nice and well equipped, the nice lounge with open fire and cozy couches a highlight.. The kitchen was well...

We had a wonderful stay at Drifter's Inn in Hanmer over Easter weekend. Andy and Adele clearly go an extra mile to make sure their guests are comfortable and happy. We were very pleased with the extra friendly service, free unlimited wifi, use of the huge and well equipped kitchen and lounge area (which had a warm country lodge feel...

We arrived without having pre-booked, and got the last available room. It was modern, spotless and spacious with bed and a couch. The receptionist kindly showed us the room first, and then the communal kitchen. That sold it for us. What an awesome facility the kitchen, dining room and lounge are. Although there are restaurants within a couple of minutes...

Stopped in for an over night stay after 4 days hiking. Beds were superb comfy and Andy was really helpful even when we called to book in after 7pm. Andy sorted us out a room with 2 single beds in less than 10min he was really accommodating. Great spot would absolutely recommend.

We were pleasantly surprised to find how close we were to the Hanmer Springs Spa itself. The facilities were totally adequate and the kitchen, dining area superb with lots of space for several groups to prepare meals or simply relax over a glass of wine.

We drove down from Blenheim via Murcheson and stayed the night at the Drifters Inn; what a great little find. The owner couldn't be nicer and showed us around the lounge and large communal kitchen, before showing us our room. The rooms are compact but have all that you need for a good nights sleep. The Drifters Inn is right...
