We loved it here! The chalet had absolutely everything we needed and more and it was very comfortable. The location is fantastic - just a 5 minute walk to the spa and to the shops. We wished we could have stayed longer! We will definitely be coming back here on our next trip to NZ.

We have stayed here before and it was great to be back! The chalets are so peaceful and relaxing. We were able to walk into town as well as to the Conical Hill walkway. Our stay was only for one night but definitely worth it!

We (2 adults, 12 and 10 yr old) stayed in a two bed chalet, which we found a bit small. It was also a bit cold being detached and in winter so guess we were paying for the novelty factor of being in a chalet. Owner was friendly and Wi-Fi reliable.

We loved our stay at the Chalets Motel. Perfect little lodge all to ourselves, complete with spa bath. So glad we paid extra for that room as we could open up a large window to have a romantic bathe under the stars....really lovely way to spend part of our honeymoon. Everything we wanted from a room and very reasonably priced.... More

We stayed here in June and it was very cold at the time. The chalets are well fitted out with a kitchen, dining table and separate bedrooms. The privacy was well appreciated. The kitchen in the chalet was well fitted out and we were able to use it to make meals during our stay. They have towels you can borrow... More

We went as a family - myself, my two kids and my mum. we had a two bedroom chalet and it was fantastic. Nice nice big rooms, nice shower, walking distance to town. Lovely atmosphere. Full oven and kitchen facilities - we should have brought more groceries however.

This was our fourth stay in this great motel. Together with a friendly and helpful host, all the facilities we needed for our six night stay could be found here. The stand-alone chalets are cosy, warm, very clean, quiet and come with a stunning view of the distant mountains. Less than a 10 minute walk to the town centre and... More

We received a very warm welcome and were very pleased with our little cabin on the edge of the woods. It had great views, was well equipped, had excellent heating and a really comfortable bed. We couldn't have asked for a better place for a mid-week break in Hanmer. The Chalets Motel is a short walk from the town centre,... More

We found this Motel to be an absolute gem. Very tidy, clean, and every piece of equipment one could desire in a Motel. Internet Wi-Fi very good and included in the daily price. Brilliant location, only a short drive to the Hanmer shops and Thermal Pools or it could be walked in 5-10 minutes. Very quiet and no traffic noise... More

The staff were most helpful and pleasant. The premises were clean well appointed and comfortable. There was even a morning news paper at the front door the next morning. Close to all amenities with a 10 minute walk to the town centre.
