We were delighted with the friendly welcome, cheerful, well equipped and spotlessly clean chalet and pretty gardens and rural feeling wider surroundings. Quiet and very convenient to Hanmer Springs restaurants etc. Highly recommended.

We stayed 2 nights and stayed in Chalet 10 - the spa chalet. Again clean as ever with everything you need. We love these chalets as it is not like having just a room - it is like having your own home with grounds Makes a great base for Hanmer and great views of the area. Will always recommend.

The Chalets are a wonderful option, as they are not really motels but stand alone units that are comfortable, very clean and well equipped for short or longer stays. There are barbeque facilities to use on the open lawn area that has a view across the nearby hills and valleys. The place is a little away from the town centre...

We stayed one night in this spotless chalet, charming helpful hosts. The chalet had absolutely everything we needed, spa towel hire was much cheaper than at the hot pools. The chalet was walking distance from restaurants and hot springs.

Chalets Motel is a great place to stay. The chalets are roomy, spotlessly clean, well equipped and attractively decorated. The beds are sooo comfy! The owners could not have been friendlier or more helpful. We enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend the Chalet Motels to anybody staying in Hanmer Springs. Many thanks.

Chalets Motel is utterly charming! In these days when rooms or cabins are typically crammed together with no regard for privacy or aesthetic appeal, it is really nice to find a place that has very well appointed cabins spaced over a nicely landscaped hillside with views, sun, character, and space for kids to run. In addition, our cabin was impeccably...
