The real reason for visiting Hanmer Springs is the thermal pools but then somewhere comfortable and convenient to stay is also a necessity. Having tried others we found The Chalets 4 years ago and have stayed there each year ever since. This year we were in New Zealand for only 23 days and 10 of them were at The Chalets.
As others have commented the units are a good size, clean and comfortable and very well equipped and located a short walk from the pools and shopping area.
Pat and Jock ran the operation well for many years but have now retired and Andrew with his team is doing a very good job. It will be interesting to see next year what changes, if any, he has made.
