This property leaves a lot to be desired, I agree with the previous reviewer, the towels were very tired -grey. A heater that was either on full or off not great when there is a frost outside. The TV with only 5 channels is obviously a cost saving excerise.

A friend and I were travelling recently on the backroad between Picton and Christchurch and hoped to stop along the way at Hanmer but weren't sure so didn't book anywhere. When we arrived our usual motel right opposite the baths was fully booked so we had to go elsewhere. The Hot Springs Spa had a room left and it was...

Welcoming staff. Spacious rooms. Lovely homely touches, such as throw on bed, cushions and coasters. Disappointing that second bedroom had no window at all. Free Wifi was very limited. The once white towels were clean, but looked very unappealing in their grey state. Good, but not 4.5 stars.

Visited with our motorbike group again this year and we got the same room as last year. Great. It's a big room, a little bit away from the others so it's really quiet. It was just as good this year as last. Thanks very much.

Stayed at the Hot Springs Motor Lodge for 2 nights for my birthday with my partner, when we arrived to check in we had the loveliest lady show us where our room was and bless her she had even turned the heater on before we got there so that it wasn't cold for us! Was given a bottle of milk...

We stayed there only for one night. Very big room for 3 people, also a big bathroom. Enough room for the luggage as well. The motel keepers live next door so easy to ask for help. They also gave us a bottle of milk to use with coffee or tea. I recommend this place and would happily stay there again!...

We thought the rooms were new but were told they were going to be renovated soon. The Motel was very clean and just on the sdge of town, but less than 2minutes from everything by car. We were even given towels to take with us to the nearby spas. Very roomy and well maintained.

We got a studio unit upstairs for one night. It was clean and the check in was very friendly. All of the amenities are in the room however in odd positions. E.g Tv is up quiet high (which my partner didn't mind) however the light on the roof then reflected from the TV screen, the hairdryer was across the bathroom...

Great room, really clean & private. Had a huge king bed & a really nice spa bath that was big enough for both of us to relax in. We ordered the cheese & wine to be in our room upon check in and it was perfect as well, and a reasonable amount for the price too.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night on our way to Christchurch. I booked in advance online, on arrival I was offered to have the card I booked with charged or pay by another means. We were offered 'real' milk, a map of the area, free wifi, towels for the hot pools (not on sight but a short...
