Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Chalets Motel is excellent for a family, each Chalet is stand alone, self contained with everything a family needs to be self sufficient, excellent top notch service, our family loved it , and a quick walk to the super market, hot pools and restaurants puts this accommodation at the top of our list as a family of five for Hanmer. Well done team Hanmer Chalets! we will be back on our annual visits.

Old, strange smelling. The layout is like a rabbit Warren. Block out curtains are good if you want to sleep in. Close to town restaurants. Close to Hanmer hot springs. Lots of takeaway and restaurants nearby. Laundry facilities if you pay extra

The Chalets Motel are the perfect hide away. Nestled among trees within close proximity to Hanmer village & Hot pools. These chalets are cosy, wonderful comfortable beds and pillows. Everything is provided including a decent size fridge. Waking up to beautiful views in the morning to hearing the birds sing in the trees. I have been to Hanmer several times and this is by far the best accommodation we have had. Certainly will be returning.

Andrew is great host! The cabins are warm and cozy especially for our 5 month old baby. The separated and well distanced cabins are ideal for privacy and peace and quiet. Everything is looked after and well provided. Looking forward to be back!

We had a 2brm unit. Very comfortable beds. Quiet as chalets separate from each other. Good kitchen with all equipment supplied. Good heaters so nice and warm. Less than 10 mins walk to town, but is down a fairly steep gravel driveway so older guests may find this a challenge. Very nice and helpful staff. Would very happily stay again.

What a beautiful place! Quiet, tranquil, an amazing place to relax and unwind. Beautiful warm, clean and well appointed chalet. The view first thing in the morning “spectacular”! Within walking distance to town but far enough away to feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Don’t want to leave and can’t wait to come back 😊

Our one bedroom chalet had most things you would require. Full cooking facilities including kettle, fridge, cooking hob, microwave + pans etc. Very quiet with chalets being well separated with outdoor seating. Could do with an upgrade though. Free parking. 10 minute walk to the central village.

We arrived during a heavy snow fall. Andrew was very helpful, friendly and attentive. Our chalet was warm, clean and pretty - especially in the snow! We contacted Andrew a few days after we left as we thought we'd left something behind and he went to great lengths to search for us. Thanks for a lovely stay.
