Stayed in a 2 bedroom chalet (no 8) for three nights during October 2014. The accommodation although not the biggest we stayed in during our trip was perfectly ok, clean and tidy. Full kitchen provided, with all the usual equipment. Laundry facilities available at a charge in a separate building just a view yards away. Free wi-fi provided. Noise was... More

I wasn't expecting too much from this motel based on internet searches and pictures. Well, I can now honestly say, you cant always believe what you read or see online. The Chalets Motel was lovely! Clean, Warm, Spacious, views were gorgeous and only a very short drive to town (or walk if your not too tired from a day of... More

We enjoyed our weekend in Hanmer, and our accommodation was great. Close to the town, but still a little sunny haven on the hill. Great facilities, so we could cook breakfast, and the room was a little cabin so you didn't feel like you were on top of other guests. The hosts were so lovely and friendly.

Lovely setting, quiet chalet, very clean and well appointed. Bathroom a bit cramped but clean. The view is absolutely stunning especially from the top chalets. Great to have the unlimited free wifi and 50+ Sky channels which is a selling point for us.

A daily paper was provided along with a fresh set of towels, dish cloth, tea towel etc... placed at our door in a sealed plastic... More

A great spot close to thermal pools. Very friendly man who helped us check in and gave us some DVD which was a nice touch for a rainy wet evening. Chalets are spotless, fully equipped and warm. Free wifi and sky TV . Beds had an electric blanket which was a nice touch for a cold night. Comfortable beds .... More

We stayed at Chalets Motel for two nights in August 2014 and found the cabin to be clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped, heater operated fine, bed was comfy with electric blankets, water hot in the shower, and private being a cabin with space to park the car. The walk to the town centre (Monthieths pub) took... More

We stayed here for two nights for a family weekend break in a two-bedroom chalet and this place worked very well. Ours was a Lockwood construction building with moderate insulation and plenty of heating. The motel is within 10 minutes walk of central Hanmer Springs and the hot pools. The chalet was clean and well appointed with an alpine log... More
