I stayed here with my parents and sister on a South Island family holiday and we were so pleasantly surprised by our spacious and comfortable two bedroom suite. The lodge is located within minutes walk of the Hanmer Springs pools and places to eat and relax.The only downfall was that we couldn't locate a wardrobe in either bedroom, however obviously...

Spent a night In Hanmer Springs before leaving the South Island leg of our trip, and this was an excellent choice of Motel. Just down the road from the Hot Springs and lots of restaurants nearby. The room was fantastic, nice spa bath, an excellent size, very comfortable - really high quality all round. Reasonable price for a touristy location....

We chose Tussock Peak based on reviews on Trip Advisor and weren't disappointed. Well appointed, comfortable beds, friendly reception staff (who called us to let us know we'd left some things behind as soon as they found them and came over to tell us a Santa parade was on much to the delight of our son). Short walk to the...

We had to change our plans because of an earthquake, we were supposed to be in Kaikoura. But what a pleasant surprise Hanmer Springs was.

Thanks for your review and all your nice comments.

Lovely motel that is well-appointed, comfortable, modern, clean and very roomy. Nice comfy bed and couch that made it more homely than other motels. Great friendly staff who were very helpful. Quiet location. Highly recommended for your journey around the South Island.
