Reviewed 25 September 2011

Hosts were exceptionally friendly, but not obtrusive. On arrival we were shown the range of dvd's we were able to borrrow along with books, nice friendly touches. The one bedroom unit (all units stand alone) we had was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, not flash by any means but had everthing we needed. So quiet - the dawn chorus of birds was so lovely. Unobtructed views of the mountains, situated on a small hill so views perfect. A really good place to go for some peace and quiet to sit in the sun look at the view and read a book. Well maintained lawns and gardens. A short walk down to shops, thermal pools etc - so the car can stay parked and no driving worries if out for a drink or two with dinner. Really looking forward to when we can go back for a long weekend. Highly recomended.

The hosts are lovely. The view of the mountains is beautiful. The accommodation is simple but clean and comfortable. The beds are probably due for an update, but we still slept fine. A comfortable portacot was available. The shower can also be a small bath - which is a great find for younger kids. The playground is a bit tired - but the kids don't seem to care a bit! Other great aspects - inexpensive laundry, DVDs and books available (including children's books).

I like separate units as then you don't have to worry about noise. Nice size - we had 3 teenage boys with us - they did comment that the couches were too short but they survived!
Clean, warm, friendly hosts and good pricing. The whole package for families! A quick walk to the pools or to the shops - the car was not used for the 2 nights we were there - just as well we could walk as the car was snowed in!
A nice alternative to a holiday home and you don't have to clean the place!

After a stressful week we came for a weekend of peace and quiet and left felling like royalty. We can not recommend the Chalets Motel high enough! Trip Advisor should have a rating of "Outstanding" just for this stunning gem. The hosts made us feel so welcome and the quality and cleanliness of our room was of an "Outsanding" quality. The free breakast (which we got from trip advisor) was freshly cooked and arrived to our room piping hot. Our hosts helped us with where to go for the best food and showed us a awesome half day walk. Once you have been to the hot pools for the night and cuddled up in your room there is no where else you would want to be. We will be back again and again and again! Thank you so much for the effort you put in

Jock was fantastic & could not do enough to help make our stay comfotable. We stayed in the largest available Chalet due to having 4 small children! It was modern, comforable & warm. I cannot recommend this place enough :)
