“Nice Little cabins”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Only 1 night but a great night. The cabin we were in felt private and had the most amazing view over the area & Mountains. Basic fit out but the price reflects that. Very comfortable and clean and loved the idea of being in our own cabin in the mountains. Quiet, Close to the shops & Restaurants.
Would stay here again.

Recently had a one night stay in Chalet #7. Chalet was quiet and clean, bed comfortable, linen & utensils good. Owners were welcoming and were obliging in placing our three groups of friends travelling together in adjoining Chalets. Location is lovely with mountain views and just a short walk to shops, restaurants and areas attractions.

We spent our first two nights here after a long 24 hr journey. It was absolutely wonderful. We stayed in chalet no 10 with the spa tub. The chalet was spacious, comfortable bed and pillows, good linens. I didn't realize there would be shower also, that was great. Good size bedroom with extra pillows and luggage rack (important because not everyplace has one). Good living space area and kitchen, very good fridge. Loved the outdoor space and the outdoor clothes hanging areas, laundry facilities were excellent and a great price. Wonderful grounds and great location to town centre. When I first entered the chalet it seemed very clean. When I set the cooler/ice box down on the kitchen floor I noticed that the floor hadn't been sweep, neither had the bathroom floor. So I grabbed a tissue I had and just sweep it up myself. It was just overlooked, it happens. Everything else was extremely clean, and I am a clean freak. I have my container of Wet Naps and my husband knows that certain things must be wiped before we use like the light switches, tv remote toilet, fridge handles etc. So he was glad I didn't freak out. Everything else was perfect. It was a lovely way to start our vacation. We told people about it as we travelled and bragged about how nice it was.

First night stay in NZ after long flight from UK. What a find! From the little touches (complimentary fresh milk for tea/coffee upon check in) to the gorgeous chalets with wonderful facilities it really was a wonderful, restful first night of our trip.

Jock and Pat we both lovely, helpful and attentive hosts. Can't wait to visit again!

As soon as we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and were shown where facilities were that we needed. The cabin was well equipped and spotlessly clean with the bonus of great views. Located on the edge of the town close to the golf course, within easy walking distance of bars, restaurants and the hot springs which are a must do.

Unfortunately our itinerary did not allow us to spend more than one night here BUT well worth the diversion to Hanmer Springs.

Highly recommended.

Had a fantastic stay in chalet 8, two couples sharing. Very clean accommodation and friendly host. Short scenic walk to hot springs and very peaceful setting. Sky sports was a bonus! Highly recommended.
