Stayed one night and opted for one bedroom unit, which was good size and cleanl. Had everything that will want in a motel except may be heat pump though had heater and electric blanket. Heater was good for us as was not very cold though was raining throughout but will recommend for couple and families. We were the only people staying as was weekday and heavy rain forecast in Canterbury was in place. Host was very warm and friendly and will recommend based on my experience. Also as centrally located everything was close by and it helped as was raining most of the time during my stay ( even though is a tiny town and most motels will be centrally located). Will like to Thank the host for our stay and will recommend it to friends and family.

This review is written by a person whom is out to destroy our Business. The comments are one sided and completely untrue. Come and stay with us next time you are in Hanmer Springs and come to your own conclusion. See you next time.

Aspen Lodge Motel, never never ever stay at this horrible hole in Hamner, these losers expect you to clean the unit from top to bottom after paying for an over priced sh.. kicker. These cow boys have NO idea about hospitality they aren’t even allowed to be on Airbnb being a motel hence why their name isn’t in the Airbnb page!! Far better and hospitable options!

This review is full of one sided comments from a person who wrote on the initial review thru another platform that they had a great stay. We can not divulge any further details regarding this case. A personal attack on our business has now been made. Come and stay with us next time you are in Hanmer Springs and see what a wonderful time you will have then you can come to your own conclusion. See you soon.

David and Janice were very helpful with providing accommodation that met our requirements plus. Their service throughout our stay was great and nothing was any trouble. They made it feel like we were staying with friends/family without being intrusive. They identified places we may like to see They were spot on with their suggestions. Would stay here again.

We spent 4 days at the Apsen Lodge Motel in January 2021. We had a lovely upstairs studio unit. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the bed very comfy. The little balcony was the perfect spot to relax in the sunshine. The owners of the property were lovely - friendly and personable and happy to share information about the area. Would definitely recommend this as a perfect place to stay when you visit Hanmer.

Thanks for your review Aileen.We have noticed that the guests who have come for three to seven nights have treated it as a staycation, and have come away totally relaxed and refreshed. More so because of reduced travel and you can practically walk everywhere you need to in the village. You were a pleasure to have here, and we look forward to your return visit in the future.
