Chalets Motel

Reviewed 2 November 2016

Perfectly suited to a couples night away. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Self contained units were well appointed, providing a little home away from home. The mountain views were stunning. Location made for an easy stroll around the township, while still being private and tucked away from the main road. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Our unit was on the lower level of the site, making it easy to park.

Lovely self-contained units with well appointed kitchen will suit the traveler looking to have some 'home time' while away travelling. We purchased some NZ lamb and were able to enjoy a home cooked food in full view of the mountains.
Hosts were cheerful and accommodating.

We are coming back time to time almost every year to same place (house), and we have always a very great time with Andrew and his crew. The lovely 2 bdr chalets are extremely tidy and clean, the place has fantastic view over Hanmer Springs and view to mountains around it. Who really need to relax after the busy days, just go there, have a great time!

Room Tip: Not necessary, every chalet is very good, on same good quality level with fantastic view (top of the...

A really nice setting and warm welcome. Motel unit 8 was clean but furniture was a little dated and the bed was soft and worn.For the price we paid it would have been good to have a better bed. The views and quiet setting are really great

The Chalets were of decent quality, if a little small. However, if you're in Hamner, you're not there to speand a few days in a motel room! The Chalet was clean and functional. If it wasn't raining, the trampoline was a nice touch. DVD's to borrow was also a nice touch for the kids

Location wise, it was just enough out of town and an easy walk.

If you need a few nights and the main objective is to have the kids in their own room, this motel will do it nicely.

The motel itself had a laundry and was peacful and quiet.

TIP: If you're driving up from Christchurch, do a shop at Countdown or New World for your breakfast and dinner as feeding a family of 4 in Hmaner isn't cheap. The room has a full kitchen and microwave.
