We stayed for only 2 nights in Cabin 2 at Chalets Motel Hanmer Springs and it was great. We were celebrating a birthday while there and the owners gave info on places to celebrate while there. Our cabin had a wonderful view of the surrounding area and the seat out on the grass was a great place for a read and a wine in the afternoon sun. We had a separate bedroom with a very comfortable, warm bed, and the separate bathroom was roomy and the shower was very good. Our kitchen had a full sized stove and microwave as well. We liked the fact that we could park our car right outside the door. We took advantage of the laundry with washing machines and dryer. The area is very quiet and only a sort walk into the town area and hot springs. Had a great stay and would recommend to friends and family.

Over many years I have stayed in Hanmer Springs for a variety of reasons. Some for business and some for holiday, some on my own and others with family and friends. These motels run by Pat and Jock are ideal for every occasion and the value for money is amazing. The privacy, views, peacefulness of the individual villas are great and I would certainly rate them as the number one place to stay in Hanmer Springs by choice.

We spent a week in the Spa Chalet and it was so relaxing. The Chalets are spaced far enough apart to be quite private. Good, well appointed kitchen, TV with 50 Sky channels, WiFi, daily newspaper, superb mountain views and...... the Spa. Just wonderful and so close to town. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, Jock and Pat. Would definately recommend staying here if visiting Hanmer Springs.

Although it was April 2012 when I stayed here with friends, I still remember how great it was - and sorry for not writing sooner! We were shown round our lovely chalet, shown how to use all the heaters etc - and ENCOURAGED to use them rather than not! We were leant towels to take to the spa and all in all were made to feel incredibly welcome. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you Pat and Jock for making our stay most enjoyable you were very friendly and welcoming, the Chalets were just beautiful, very spacious and had everything we needed, we had AWESOME Mountain views from our Chalet and a paper delivered to our door every morning :) and we were just a stones throw away from the center of town and the Thermal Pools. This was our second stay at the Chalet Motel and would stay there again in a heart beat, would recommend them to anyone Thanks heaps :)

Quaint, well spaced individual chalets with nice mountain views, big screen TV with SKY, everything you need to cook and parking next to chalet. (Hosts were great too ! Informative, friendly and not intrusive.) 10 out of 10. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
