Having stayed in 99% of motel accommodation in Hanmer Springs, over many years! (As from nearby Christchurch) I fully recommend a stay at The Chalets Motel. The best aspect is the quietness of staying in a separate unit, (no snoring or loud talking through the wall). A full oven in the kitchen, and microwave, and all the drawers filled with...

Hi Janice! Thanks sooooo much for your awesome review!! We are just rapt that you enjoy staying at The Chalets (especially in No. 5!) and enjoy the privacy and peace of having your own separate Chalet. We do try hard to make our chalets a 'home away from home', but unfortunately we can't take the credit for having 'Skylab' cruise...

We really enjoyed our one night stay at the Chalets Motel. Jock was very welcoming and informative and the cabin was clean, warm, cosy and well-equipped. Our son accidently left his very much loved soft toy behind and very shortly after we had left Pat gave us a call telling that she had found it while cleaning the cabin. This...

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights stay at The chalets Motel. The accommodation was clean, warm and cosy and Pat was the perfect hostess, making sure all was well. Having a separate unit was just perfect so that we could relax and not have to worry too much that our kids were bothering neighbours with their usual noisy games! The...

We stayed 3 nights and were so well looked after by Jock and Pat. We stayed during a more quiet time and received a free upgrade on our chalet, which was a lovely wooden 2-bedroom private chalet. The rooms were clean, warm and comfortable. Jock and Pat helped with recommendations on places to eat, how to get to the ski...

On a recent trip around the South Island we finished off with 4 nights at The Chalets Motel in Hanmer Springs and were not disappointed. In the middle of winter it was important to us that we were warm. The Chalet was incredibly cosy as well as being comfortable and clean. Jock and Pat were the perfect hosts but what...

We could have spent days relaxing here. The owner was very attentive and the view was breath-taking (sp?) with the snow on the mountains in the morning. There are great running paths along the roadways, and excellent restaurant in town (can't remember the name but might be Monteith's - ask the owner, he and his wife go there), and the...

Thanks for the 3 nights here last week. The chalets are not brand new, but are warm, comfortable, very clean, and well appointed with everything needed for a family stay. Friendly welcome and great service. Small playground just outside our door which our two children used whenever they could. Would love to stay here again.
