Positive Reviews

Pleasant environment

Travellers seeking a quiet spot to relax should appreciate where this accommodation is situated. Guests say it in a tranquil area with spectacular views of the mountains and nice walks nearby. The thermal springs can be reached on foot and there are several eateries close by.

Good value accommodation

Guests appreciate the simplicity of this motel, which is ideal for budget travellers. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable with good quality power showers.

Welcoming hosts

The exceptionally friendly attitude of the motel’s hosts makes guests feel instantly at ease. They come across as being very knowledgeable and passionate about the local area and are delighted to give tips on what to do and where to eat.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms

Guests warn not to expect a lot of space to move around in as the rooms are not the most largest to be found.

Sound proofing could be improved

There are a few grumblings from guests about the quality of the sound insulation. The thin walls mean noise can be heard from the adjoining rooms.

Far from the main town

Travellers wanting to be right in the heart of the action may find this accommodation to be a too far out for their liking. It is quite a walk to get to the centre of Hanmer, which can be particularly off-putting in winter.
