“Difficult to quantify.”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

The Greenacres Chalets are a series of cabins located just above the main street of Hanmer Springs. The location is good and the surrounding mountains and beautiful scenery are lovely to look at and peaceful to enjoy.

The rooms are very basic and the bathroom was in need of some TLC as we couldn't get the door to close all the way and the surfaces were worn, but very clean. The kitchen was nicely stocked with more utensils than we were used to seeing in other motels and adequate space to cook if one desires. The best part of the experience was the very lovely hostess who was friendly and helpful.

We visited Greenacres travelling as a party of two families of 4 and found our stay in the villas very roomy, well located to town centre with 10 minute (very) leisurely walk and great views.

Our villas were adjoining and had small balcony each and very spacious. We loved our short stay and would come back again.

I stayed at Greenacres as part of an organised trip of the top of the South Island. A group of us stayed in House 6. The accomodation appeared to have been refurbished in the recent past, and improvements had been made to the bathroom.

The accommodation was immaculately clean, and we had a good one night stay.

Greenacres claims ot be the oldest motel in Hanmer Springs and it shows. Whether this conveys 'past its sell-by date' or old-world charm will be a matter of choice, but we enjoyed it. The room was spacious and clean - one the largest we met in a New Zealand motel. The kitchen was the best equipped of all that we found with a full size oven. The site is quiet and pleasantly landscaped and the staff welcoming and helpful. Being located at the northern end of Hanmer Springs puts it a little way out of the central hustle - an advantage for us, and very convenient for an evening stroll up Conical Hill. Our one night stay was a real pleasure and we would certainly recommend it.

After landing in Christchurch, picking up the hire car and then an hour and a half drive we arrived at greenacres tired and jet lagged. The owner could not have been more helpful, checked us in early and suggested going down to the thermal springs which we did. Wow, what an experience, hamner in the winter, snow topped mountains and sitting for a couple of hours in hot springs.
Our chalet was excellent value for money, very clean, with all cooking facilities and once it warmed through, was very cosy. Highly recommended.

Booked for 1 night for birthday celebration for a couple and was upgraded to Villa No 14. Whilst built in the 80's and still adorning this décor, it was in remarkable condition, very clean and comfortable. Bed was wonderful and room quiet. A great layout, extremely spacious and boasting the best view in Hanmer - we sat outside on the deck eating pizza and drinking wine in mid July and soaking up the atmosphere. Covered parking provided - this would easily accommodate a family of 5.
Our hostess Victoria was magic and couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was memorable.
Thank you Victoria for your hospitality - we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: 2 bedroomed unit - 1 double and x2 singles with extra bed on landing in living area
