We stayed here for a night passing through hanmer springs and loved it. We had a family unit which had 2 bedrooms, one with 3 single beds which was great for us ( often in other motels the option for child number 3 seems to be a sofa in the lounge which doesn't work as well). The kitchen had a...

We turned up at the Chalet after staying at a pretty grotty place in Kaikoura and we certainly landed on our feet. Pat gave us such a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for her. Our Chalet was cosy, comfortable, clean and well-equipped. The chalets are detached so you don't have close neighbours and the views for the...

Our chalet was extremely comfortable and warm and our hosts Pat and Jock were helpful in telling us what to see and do in the area. The chalets are well laid out with good attention to detail. We like comfort when we travel and we...

We stayed 1 night at Chalets Motel and were pleasantly surprised and very much impressed by the villa we stayed in. It was spacious, clean and very well equipped. The Chalets Motel was just less than 5 min drive to the centre of the town where the Heated Pools, Spa and restaurant were located. My 3 years old daughter simply...

We had the pleasure of staying for one night at the Chalets Motel. It was a much needed night of luxury having spent 12 nights travelling the south island by camper van.

Never been to Hanmer Springs before, was looking forward to going to the Hot Pools. The motels were very nice, spotless and private. The view from the motels is absolutely beautiful. The couple that operate them Pat and Jock would be the friendliest couple ever. So helpful.
