Comfortable lodgings, clean but for 5 people one bathroom thru the kitchen was not a good option. Very small bathroom. Kitchen was well stocked. Motel was close to town centre, easy walk. Laundry facilities available. There are great views over the mountains from a good size deck and parking outside front door.

We have stayed at Alpine Lodge in Hanmer Springs for the second time in a month. Fantastic friendly managers, spotlessly clean units, excellent location across the road from the hot pools. Can totally recommend a breakaway here & will always be our 'go to' stop. Motels situated right in Hanmer Springs. Loved it!

Door stuck and had a few broken and loose tiles in the bathroom. Hopefully on the maintenance list. Room was quite dated but was warm and spacious. Free use of towels for the hot pools from reception was handy.

Australian travelers. Hanmer springs is a very nice area which reminds me of the shops at the snow fields in Australia. Good sized apartment with full kitchen setup. Did a cheap (price-wise that is) Jet boat ride (owners also own the apartments I think?). Had Thai for dinner. Great value, beautifully presented and huge meals.

Just as I encountered everywhere in New Zealand, the service on arrival at Alpine Lodge was exceptional. The friendly receptionist showed us to our room, turned the heater on and recommended a few local attractions nearby. The room was spacious, clean and tidy. The wood panel construction is quaint. The furniture & bedding is outdated but that's to be expected...

Fabulous accomodation in a perfect spot opposite the Hanmer Springs Pools. The managers are very friendly even offering a free upgrade. There is a laundry for guests and each room has little kitchenette with everything you need. Spacious and homely.the rooms are a very reasonable price too

This motel is very handy to everything It is right opposite the Hanmer Pools and within walking distance to everything. The hosts were very welcoming even when we interrupted their dinner. The room was very warm when we arrived. The only downful of this place is we were not able to access the internet at all while we were in...

Room size very good, everything wood very cosy and chalet-like. Cold upon arriving, but two heaters worked well to warm the space up quickly. Power-shower very nice! We stayed two nights, but could have stayed longer as full kitchenette was very well equipped. Location is perfect, right across from the pools. We have stayed here before hence chose it again....

The large round beds in the Tower Suites are fantastic! Friendly service from the owners. This was my second time staying here and I would definitely stay again next time I'm in Hanmer. Great location- walking distance to everything!

We stayed four nights. The Studio was comfortable and warm. The shower had a minor fault and will be corrected by Management who were very friendly and their knowledge of the area and activities was great.

We are renowned for our impressive round tower and suites with very unique super-king sized ROUND BEDS.
