3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great little motel, run with great care and obvious pride. Very helpful and caring attitude from your hosts, clean and well-appointed rooms. Free DVD library, good selection of Sky tv channels. Full kitchen.

This is a lovely tranquil place. Our family of four, enjoyed our three night stay. We were staying in Chalet number 1 which had a lovely view of the golf course. The chalet had a deck, kitchen, lounge, bathroom and 2 bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped. Our bed was comfy, but the single beds were hard. The bathroom was neat and cosy for one person. The chalet was serviced daily and all supplies were restocked including juice and cookies. The owners were friendly and had thought of any extras required by guests. We would happily recommend this place for a stay in Hanmer Springs.

On arrival at Alpine Springs we had a very friendly welcome by Rob and Rhiannon, the lodge was perfect ,quiet just the birds singing in the trees , total opposite to the motel we stopped at the night before (wagons all night on Highway 1), the peace and quiet fantastic, a gentle stroll across the golf course took you to the thermal springs ,most relaxing after a long drive if we return to Hanmer Springs we would definitely stop here again, the WiFi not perfect but when you find a place that is so tranquil not the most important thing, the place was lovely, gardens well maintained . The following day we travelled the road through Molesworth Station 200 km. on a gravel road through the biggest farm in New Zealand, started of up Jacks pass in mist then once reaching the top the rest of the journey in sunshine, Not a road for the faint hearted no mobile phone signal, rough in places , narrow bridges , fantastic views very remote. Road only open for a few months in the year. A good place to stay before ,recommend Alpine Springs.

We visited in late November and they had put the Heat Pump on for our arrival as it was a bit cold (yes even in November!) Lovely comfy cabin with a large bathroom and a full kitchen. When the cloud lifted there was an excellent view from the decking. The availability of towels for the Hot Pools was a bonus. Nice quite location, 10 min or so walk to town via shortcut. 3-4 min drive.

We arrived on a cold and bleak winters day in the pouring rain, way too early for the normal 2 o'clock check-in. However, this was not an issue for our wonderful host who took us to our unit, explained about tv and air conditioning, gave us a welcome basket of goodies and left us to settle in. When I found I had left my iPad charger behind, he offered to charge it up for me. The beds were very comfy, the electric blankets definitely needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Wasn’t going to write this but owner seemed unrested so a response was inevitable ...... We shared the room with 7+ spiders which we took care of but the cobwebs were all over the place..... dirty wine glasses so check the washing up !

This place is wonderful. Beautiful setting quiet and peaceful. The hosts are fantastic and so easy to deal with. We only stayed one night but would happily spend a week there. Unit number 7 where we stayed is very clean and tidy updated and modern. They are the only place I have stayed that give you a decent amount of milk juice and the most delicious cookies !!! Top work guys I would absolutely stay again. Thank you

Had an amazing night away with my partner and the accommodation is amazing and the staff are wonderful. Great room, comfortable bed, spa bath was great, very close to center of town so not far to get to hot pools.

Only stayed one night but this is without doubt the best motel that we stayed in whilst touring the South Island. The owner Bob is the perfect host and we stayed in cabin number two which has recently been completely updated to a very, very high standard. The surrounding gardens where you can relax and take in the beautiful scenery are meticulously maintained. The location is very quiet and is less than a 10 minute walk from the centre of Hanmer Springs. Based on other places we have stayed that were awarded 5 stars then Bob and his motel deserve at least 6 Stars.

The owners have clearly put their all into this property... it is gorgeous! Our unit was fitted out with only the best and the spa was great! I wouldn’t really call it a motel - it’s definitely a class above that! It is so peaceful and the owners were willing to accommodate any request- we were also given a little welcome basket with juice and biscuits. The only downside (if u want to call it that) is that it’s not in town like the majority of the other accommodation in Hanmer Springs (it’s about a 10 minute walk). We can’t wait to return to check it out in the ski season :)
