Very good value for money.
Room was a fair size, not big but good.
Clean and tidy.
Reception was great. Towels avaliable for the pool.
Nice lounge with fire. Great kitchen if you feel you must cook.

Very close to everything around, very easy walking distance to pool (over the road) and eats &drinks (just down the road a few 100m).

Really enjoyed our stay and this place will be top of the list if we come back to Hanmer.

Brilliant place to stay in Hanmer.
Central location, affordable prices and clean cosy rooms.
Great having the communal kitchen and living room area to enjoy a glass of wine before going out or breakfast in the morning.

Kelly the lady in charge was absolutely wonderful and nothing was a problem.

Couldn’t rate it highly enough and will be back again next year! Well done guys, fabulous place!

We stayed here one night on our way back to Christchurch and to check out the springs. We booked late (about 1/2hr before we arrived) but the owners (Adele and her partner) had the room ready and showed us to it and how to operate aircon etc. There is a full kitchen downstairs along with a seating area with board games and a fireplace.

Great hosts with great recommendations. They also had some good knowledge on Christchurch so we got some tips as we were heading there the next day.

Thanks for a great stay!

Fantastic price for a 1 night stay for us, Adele in reception was lovely when we arrived helping us to get a dinner reservation. The room was exceptional value for money and the inn is a comfy warm place to stay! We would definitely stay back here.

We had a lovely stay at Drifters. Adele in reception was so helpful and accommodating. She went above and beyond making sure we were settled and knew all the best places to visit in town. The room was spotless and well appointed. Beds were super comfortable and we had a great night’s sleep. The accommodation also has a guest lounge and kitchen. Located centrally in town it is right across the road from the thermal pools and spa, and walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Highly recommend.
