We were rapt with our choice of a one bedroomed chalet. This chalet was very spacious with a well fitted kitchen (proper oven), spacious living and bathroom. Outside was a Jack and Jill seat ideal for an evening wine or breakfast with the birds. Very clean and tidy. The bathroom was clean and shower great. There was also a wee... More

This was a return trip to the Chalets. We stayed for our first nights last Feb and again decided it was the right choice to start again here. We stayed for 2 nights again in Chalet 10 (spa tub). PROS: own yard, laundry facilities available, outside hanging area and clothes pins, comfortable bed and pillows, great shower, great water (best... More

Thank you thank you Andrew for calling me to say I'd left my new sunglasses on the window and sending them straight back to Auckland for me.:) I agree with all the other positive comments about your excellent friendly service and charming chalets. We particularly loved the forest setting and forest and mountain views from the elevated site. Good DVD... More

We needed accommodation for one night only. We were so sorry that we had not planned to stay longer at the Chalet Motel. It was extremely good value, as we have found so much of the accommodation in NZ expensive and poor value. It was fabulous to have our own, self contained chalet. The kitchen was fully equipped and we... More

I took my three grandchildren to Hanmer Springs this last weekend, staying two nights at Chalets Motel. We received a very warm and friendly welcome from our hosts, they took the children off to show them our " home" for the weekend, our chalet was very warm, very well appointed and comfortable with a lovely mountain view. All thought the... More

This is our fifth stay and last year we commented that it would be interesting to see what changes Andrew and Vera had made. Well, quite a few mainly dealing with simple issues of creature comfort thus making an excellent establishment even better. In summary, separate chalets on well maintained grounds and, despite a bit of a hill, an easy... More

My wife and I are touring New Zealand and arrived at Hanmer Springs about 8pm looking for accommodation. The first place we tried couldn't make their minds up whether they wanted to let accommodation. So we drove a couple of minutes to find the Chalets Motel in Jacks Road. There was a friendly welcome. We were taken to a nice... More

We've stayed here a few times before and always found it very clean and pleasant. The separate chalets make it special -- and usually very quiet. But on our most recent visit, last week, we were a bit disappointed. The facilities are still the same, although there is a new owner/manager. But a new subdivision is being built nearby, and...

All the reviews you read here of the chalets are indeed true. They're clean, comfy and have a beautiful setting with lovely views of the mountains. But as a group of nine on a motorcycle tour of the island, that twisting, steep, loose gravel driveway was murder! More annoying was the fact we had specifically checked with the owners in... More

Just on the outskirts of town, but only a five minutes walk into the centre. Chalets in an Alpine style, with bedroom, bathroom and living/kitchen/dinig area and ourside terrace. Only drawback is that the chalets get very hot during the day, and with no air-conditioning a ceiling fan would probably have made a hufe difference.
