Close to the Hot Pool and very quite at night Dec 27, 2016
We booked this place a week before we go there as it appears Hanmer Spring is a really popular destination by local or tourist, and not many hotel room vacancy available. I used New Zealand local website to get a special good deal as it appears the price is cheaper compare with other website such as, or

It cost NZ$130 per night for 2 people without breakfast.

The location of the motel is right at the centre of Hanmer Spring Hot Thermal Pool and less than one minute walk to the hot pool.

The reception was friendly and our room was ready. We park the car randomly in front of the motel unit when we arrived and we find out that unit was belong to us for a night which is very handy and we do not have to move the car. The car park is free for the motel guests. We can rent a scooter or mountain bike here but we did not do it as we only want to go to the hot pool and the towel for the hot pool provided free of charge by the motel.

Plenty of maps and sights information around the area in the reception counter.

There is a small patio chair outside the room, so guest can sit outside and enjoying the garden. The room itself clean, and spacious with one comfortable double bed, sofa and small table, dining table, microwave, refrigerator, free tea and coffee with water boiler and many plates, bowls, glasses, and cutleries. However no cooking equipment, so guest would not be able to do cooking at this place.

The bathroom is big and has a light and heater on it, which I really like especially good to use during the cold night. I miss this kind of bathroom as surprisingly in Denmark household, they do not have heater inside the bathroom – so I missed my old house with the big bathroom and big garden.

Everything working well here and the hot shower was really good especially after we went to the stinky hot pool.

At night time it was very quite and we did not hear anything from the room, and we can sleep well, however in the morning it was quite noisy with the neighbour noise but we already up, and just being lazy laying around before having breakfast.

Next door from the motel is a French restaurant which look quite nice and romantic with a candle light. Unfortunately we did not dine there as we dine at one of the bar restaurant opposite the hot pool. Hanmer Spring is a small town and the place is surrounding with so many hotels, motels, guesthouses, café and restaurants within walking distant. It was a nice stay for the night before continuing our trip.
