Greenacres Chalets And Apartments

Reviewed July 22, 2009

We stayed in one of the townhouse apartments. We felt like we were in a time capsule to the 60s-- everything was in perfect shape, but extremely dated. This was no big deal, but our visit was during a chilly period and the place was freezing. We could get the main room decently warm, but the hallway and bathroom were arctic the whole time. The view from the balcony is very nice, but I would only consider returning during the warm months and if other options were not available.

Thanks for your comments. We take on board that you were cold in the town house and have since been and stayed up there ourselves and found that a similar problem and have put in an extra heater as a temporary measure. We are hoping to install a fire place in the lounge before next winter and better heating in the hall and bathrooms.
We have an upgrade programme underway for all the Chalets and Townhouses as we realise that they have been let go by prevous owners and are out of date and tired. This is reflected in our current tarriff and qualmark rating. We do endevour to keep them clean, well equiped and hopefully now warm and cosy. We hope that you would try us again in the future and you will be plesently surprised.

Stayed one night in May en route to Kaikoura. The room was clean, spacious and warm with a kitchenette and separate bedroom. Greenacres is a basic motel, a little dated, but quite comfortable, and our room had a view over the mountains through the kitchen window (when the clouds parted). The bathroom was large and clean with a good quality shower. Greenacres is well located at the top of the main street and proved to be quiet which allowed a good night's sleep

We had a nice night's stay in Hanmer Springs at Greenacres. Our individual chalet had quite a vintage feel (i.e. a bit dated) but in a generally charming and comfortable way. all the essentials were provided for a very fair price. Greenacre's location is good, too -- it's a bit out of the center of Hanmer Springs, but it's a very small town, so that's no problem at all.

The chalet we occupied looked over the valley with beautiful vistas. The rooms were very large and spacious though the kitchen was a bit dated. The kitchen and room had their own balconies which were great for just sitting at and enjoying the view. It is only 2 minutes drive down to the springs (NZD14.00 entry) which is why most visitors come to Hamner Springs they were great as well and we enjoyed our afternoon at the springs.

The hilltop location that oversees the entire Hanmer Springs view was just amazing and fantastic. The hotels were average but the rooms were a little rundown and beds/sheets could've been newer.

Be prepared for a so-so/could be renovated hotel with an amazing view.

My husband and I stayed here in January 2007 as part of a 'road trip' around the South Island. The log-type cabins had a real 'forest' feel, yet were at the top of the main street in Hanmer Springs and only 5 minutes walk from the main drag and hot spas.
The views from the hilltop cabins were absolutely beautiful, and in close vicinity of a half hour walking tour further up the mountain where the views were even better!
The cabin room we had was quite basic, clean and spacious, just what we were looking for and good value for the price. The staff were also very pleasant and let us use their internet for free. This was a nice little place, very family friendly and even had a childrens playground. I'd recommend it for anyone, and is especially good for those on a reasonably low budget wanting a very pleasant, yet homely place to stay.
