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 have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed! The staff is gorgeous and friendly the chalets are clean and plenty of pillows and extra blankets as well as a hair dryer. This is my preferred place to stay in Hanmer Springs. It's a hidden gem so hate to tell everyone about it but it deserves a good... 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

This place will stay with us all, for many years to come. Beautiful Chalets, great facilities and a great picnic area overlooking the snow capped mountains. Free wifi and all the pay tv channels included. Just down the road from the Springs and cafe/bar strip. We will be back.

Had huge expectations after reading the reviews on here, but was disappointed overall. Stayed in the spa bath chalet, but there was hardly any hot water. After having a 5-10 minute shower (awful water pressure) post hot pools we wanted to have a spa bath. Unfortunately there wasn't enough hot water. Even after 1 hour and half there as still... More

Stayed in chalet 6 thursday night, arrived at 5.30pm, greeted by 10 yr old boy at reception, no sign of owners, or other adult. Not really acceptable as boy not trained, no conversation or pleasantries. Critical customers are greeted by a trained adult, makes your custom feel unappreciated. Room very cold as all windows open, might have been nice to... More

Itevan was embodied customer service, making sure we had everything we needed, getting a bigger heater to keep us warm during a very frosty few days. The unit was clean but basic and needs updating (especially heating) to compete with some of the other motels around. Views are nice and the private spa the best.

We (3 adults) stayed at the Chalets Motel for one night in May in a 2BR chalet. The cabin was spotlessly clean and fairly small in size, yet comfortable (would have felt roomier if there were just two people). The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom and shower were great and the small kitchen was well equipped. The motel is... More
