Positive Reviews

Central location with stunning views

In more ways than one, the motel's location is something that thrills guests. Not only is it a short walk from the centre of Hanmer Springs, but the property is also said to be in a quiet area surrounded by nature. In addition, the latter apparently helps in supplying wonderful mountain views.

Clean and pristine throughout

The general condition of the motel is commended by travellers. From the chalets to the outdoor garden spaces, all areas of the property are described as well-kept and pristine.

Great service from friendly hosts

Based on feedback, the hosts are among the best reasons for staying at the motel. Travellers note that, along with a polite and friendly attitude, the proprietors will provide all reasonable assistance when needed.

Negative Reviews

Chalets can get hot

During warmer months, visitors state that the motel's chalets can get overly hot and uncomfortable. This is clearly due to the chalets not containing air conditioning, although fans are reportedly available upon request.

Showers in need of improvement

Guess are left disappointed by the standard of the motel's showers. The main negative issue relating to the showers is the water pressure, which is said to be weak and inconvenient to use as a result.

Wi-Fi a letdown

The Wi-Fi is criticised by travellers that look to get online during their time at the motel. It is said to be temperamental, while download speeds are considered slow for those that manage to establish a stable connection.
