Itevan was embodied customer service, making sure we had everything we needed, getting a bigger heater to keep us warm during a very frosty few days. The unit was clean but basic and needs updating (especially heating) to compete with some of the other motels around. Views are nice and the private spa the best.

We (3 adults) stayed at the Chalets Motel for one night in May in a 2BR chalet. The cabin was spotlessly clean and fairly small in size, yet comfortable (would have felt roomier if there were just two people). The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom and shower were great and the small kitchen was well equipped. The motel is...

Beautiful chalet close to hot springs pools in town. Scenery was amazing. Only had a one night stop over to be close to Christchurch for a flight out the following day. Had everything we needed. Would highly recommend.

free wifi, great dvd selection, quiet spacious units. Great views, comfortable beds. This is a short 5 minute walk from main shopping area and is quiet. Each unit is separate so no noise from neighbours. I highly recomend. My first choice in Hanmer.

The property is beautiful and has 10 wooden chalets with car parking and small gardens attached to the chalets. Our chalet no 4 was a 2...

We stayed 1 night in the 1 bedroom spa. The chalet had plenty of room and a very large spa. The kitchen was well arranged and had an oven as well as the cooktop and microwave. The motel is a few minutes walk from the cafes and spa/hot springs of Hanmer Springs. The service was great.

We stayed for a day in chalet no 4 with two bed rooms and a bathroom. It was raining full day so we were mostly indoors and I don't regret that coz the chalet with its wood interiors was very cosy and beautifully done up. The entire property is beautiful with lot of greenery and our chalet had amazing views...

Thank you for providing such a clean, friendly and quiet stay on Sunday 18 May. We only stayed one night but personally I found the chalet to be extremely well presented and comfortable.
