Just perfect for a family celebration. We were there for a double 70th and the accomodation was just perfect. Easy walk into Hanmer and super quiet with beautiful chalets. Andrew our host was brilliant

Perfectly suited to a couples night away. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Self contained units were well appointed, providing a little home away from home. The mountain views were stunning. Location made for an easy stroll around the township, while still being private and tucked away from the main road. We will definitely be back.

Lovely self-contained units with well appointed kitchen will suit the traveler looking to have some 'home time' while away travelling. We purchased some NZ lamb and were able to enjoy a home cooked food in full view of the mountains. Hosts were cheerful and accommodating.

We are coming back time to time almost every year to same place (house), and we have always a very great time with Andrew and his crew. The lovely 2 bdr chalets are extremely tidy and clean, the place has fantastic view over Hanmer Springs and view to mountains around it. Who really need to relax after the busy days,...

A really nice setting and warm welcome. Motel unit 8 was clean but furniture was a little dated and the bed was soft and worn.For the price we paid it would have been good to have a better bed. The views and quiet setting are really great

The Chalets were of decent quality, if a little small. However, if you're in Hamner, you're not there to speand a few days in a motel room! The Chalet was clean and functional. If it wasn't raining, the trampoline was a nice touch. DVD's to borrow was also a nice touch for the kids Location wise, it was just enough...

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....

Thank James T
