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 overlooking the mountains. The kitchen was fully equipped and the heaters were very efficient. I loved the place and was glad we choose this place to stay at hanmer. The check in and check out were smooth and the lady at the reception was very sweet :) A must stay place :)))

Stayed: April 2014

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. I will be back to stay with my family. The large lounge rooms were brilliant for our group to be able to mix after a visit to the pools and dinner.

My family of 7 stayed at The Chalets Motel (Motel 8 and 9) for 1 night on 5th March 2014. Although we arrived at the desk near closing time, Andrew took his time to show us to our two chalets (which were arranged side by side), made sure we were settled down and gave recommendations on the places we could have dinner and breakfast. We also realized he dropped us an email earlier on to check if we were on our way. Very thoughtful.
Both chalets were very clean, comfortable, well-equippred and we loved the cottage feel very much. The whole area was very well maintained and very pleasant to stay in. Free wifi was very much appreciated!

This motel had been fully booked on our previous visits to Hanmer Springs, so we were pleased to get a unit this time. The setting is lovely and peaceful, and having our own separate chalet meant it was quiet and we weren't disturbed by neighbours. The timber interior was snug and comfortable, and the facilities excellent - heaters were effective and the shower good and very hot. The kitchen was well-equipped, and the bed very comfortable. The only negative was the noise the timber made in as the temperature dropped through the night.

We stayed in Chalet 6 which was nice and roomy and mainly clean. it had everything we needed for our short stay and would return. Although I was surprised it didn't have a heat pump as it was cold and a popular winter destination. It did have heaters in each room so did warm up but in fact in the middle of the night we woke very hot as they're not easily controlled - in my opinion that is.

We stayed here for 2 nights, a family of four in a 2 bed chalet. We loved the fact that each chalet was separate from the others. The chalet was spacious, well fitted out and warm on what was a wet weekend. The walk into town was easy and flat for the most part and only a few minutes. Wifi was free. The views were lovely when the clouds parted as the chalets are slightly elevated above the town. Would highly recommend for those seeking a bit of peace and quiet in this bustling town.
