Positive Reviews

Prime location in Hanmer Springs

One of the motel's main enticements is its location. With an ideal location in central Hanmer Springs, the property is a short walk from shops, bars and restaurants. Perhaps most importantly, for guests, is its proximity to the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa, which is just a leisurely two-minute stroll away.

Exceptional service provided

Thanks in part to their welcoming and courteous nature, the owner of the motel is regarded as one of the very best reasons for staying. From providing towels to offering advice about the local area, the proprietor is also described as being really accommodating.

Clean and spacious units

In most areas, the units are applauded by guests of the motel. As well as being judged as well-sized with plenty of room, the units, from the beds to the bathrooms, are commended for being kept really fresh and clean.

Negative Reviews

Substandard Wi-Fi

Visitors criticise the general quality of the motel's Wi-Fi service. Along with connections to the Wi-Fi being lost on a frequent basis, the speed of the Internet is found to be slow and not good enough for even standard tasks.

Air conditioning not included

The motel's omission of air conditioning is something that generates negative comments from guests. This is especially an issue during hot summer days, where the temperature can apparently cause the units to overheat due to a lack of cooling solutions.

Limited kitchen facilities

While typically well-equipped otherwise, the units are criticised when it comes to the their lack of kitchen facilities. Travellers note that due to typically only containing a fridge and microwave, preparing and cooking meals can be a challenge.
