Room one with one bedroom was very sunny and private so ideal for a honeymoon. Also it was close to the golf course, hot pools and several restaurants. We had a great time there and it would have been nice to stay longer. The hosts were very friendly and helpful

Had a fabulous stay at the Hanmer Springs chalets in August 2015. Quiet, immaculately clean, private, great wifi, friendly and helpful host. Just out of the centre of town, so it's quiet but just a short distance into town. Would definitely stay here again next time!

Another excellent stay at Chalets Motel. We would never stay anywhere else. It was the first time staying in #5 which is 1 bedroom and great for a couple - it has a private deck with a beautiful view of the mountains. Lovely hosts, free DVD's to borrow, laundry etc available if you need it. Love that the chalets are...

Really loved having a private chalet with space for kids to play in the snow outside. Only stayed 2 nights but was a great location close to the thermal pools. Great heating in living area and both bedrooms.

Great location within walking distance to pools and shops. Units are all separate chalets which means nice and quite and there is no noise from the unit next door. Very clean units and had everything we needed for our stay. We stayed in Unit 6, large spacious 2 bedroom unit. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed in one of the self-contained cabins for one night, and I wish it could have been more. So nice to have our own space, with kitchenette, table and sofa, separate bedroom, and no neighbors to share walls. The bathroom had a towel warmer, which was much appreciated on the cool, wet day we had. The staff were friendly...
