Positive Reviews

Convenient location

Guests rave about the location of this motel, as it is a convenient base to explore all that Hammer Springs has to offer. Guests are able to visit several attractions in the area, including Brooke Dawson Park next door. Visitors needing a relaxation find the beloved Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa just 700 metres away.

Friendly, professional staff

Reviews show that the friendly service offered at this motel makes guests feel at ease during their stay. Visitors enjoy the atmosphere that this service creates, and appreciate the willingness of the staff to always lend a hand.

Affordable rates

According to reviews, the affordable room rates seem quite reasonable to guests' wallets. By staying at this motel, visitors are able to save money on their accommodations which, in turn, gives them more expendable cash for other travel needs.

Negative Reviews

Dated decor and fittings

Guests find the interiors of this motel to be in need of an update. The decor and furniture appear worn, which diminishes a feeling of luxury. Guests also mention annoyances like faulty fittings in the bathroom and kitchen areas.

Noisy interiors

The thin interior walls are an issue, as seen in reviews. Guests in different rooms are able to hear each other quite easily. This can lead to frustration when trying to get a good night's rest, and the neighbours keep a later bedtime.

Dirty rooms

The cleanliness seen throughout the rooms at this motel does not meet guests' standards. Visitors would like to see the housekeeping team do a better job when it comes to cleaning the private rooms. The motel's visibly dirty bathrooms, unkept kitchens, and dusty surfaces cause concern for hygiene-conscious travellers.
