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.

We had a two bedroom chalet which was great for the two of us. Lots of dvd's to watch. Good heating which was needed! Pretty well equipped kitchens for dinner meals. Liked the induction cooktops and also had an oven.

We were delighted to be back at the Chalets Motel in February 2016. We had the same Chalet as before and it was delightful. Everything was done by Andrew and his team to make our stay excellent. Thank you for making another trip to New Zealand so enjoyable. This site is so peaceful and we would recommend it wholeheartedly. We... More

These chalets are positioned for maximum privacy and views of trees, gardens, and lawns. Windows on four sides allow views in every direction, and birdsong adds to the tranquility. The pine paneling and high ceilings provide a mountainy charm. Several small things that added to our enjoyment: a full kitchen, with four-burner stove and oven; towel racks in the kitchen,... More

This was our 6th stay at The Chalets and our longest. But next year will be longer still as we have booked 2 periods of 14 days. The units are well kept and equipped and have a comfortable bed plus, from some, great views. The hosts are very well organised and personable. Overall, one of the best places we have... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and I have to say the chalets are great, clean, tidy and well supplied. Our host Andrew was very helpful. The location is fabulous, excellent views and easy walking distance into Hamner Springs. We had a fantastic time here and will be visiting again when we are next in New Zealand. Thank you.

A beautiful location on the edge of the town, very quiet and in lovely surroundings. We had lovely views over the mountains from our chalet which was well equipped, spacious and spotlessly clean. we had a warm welcome from a very friendly host.

We stayed here for 2 nights in Chalet no.8 and were very impressed. The motel is just on the edge of the township and back from the road so no noise at all. It was also an ok walking distance from the village if you had to. Our chalet was up near the top of the hill with a large... More
