Guest reviews for Drifters Inn

Everyone (1)
4 out of 5

Comfortable place in a tourist spot

Pros: Kitchen a rea
Cons: Furnishings could be updated
Location: Tourist destination for families, with plenty of activities for the sports minded.
Hanmer Springs is a tourist destination for New Zealanders. Drifters Inn has an OK room for the price. What sets this place apart is the staff and the kitchen area for guests...very nicely equipped for those who want to prepare family meals.
