We stayed in a 2 bed apartment, in a word it was stunning. I would stay here again. The managers were most helpful too. Close to town for restaurants and pools, though we did drive. The beds were pure luxury.

We recently visited Hanmer Springs and spent five nights in these beautifully appointed apartments with such sumptuous beds, but the best part was the couple managing this apartment who were so incredibly helpful, they went over and above to help us remedy some problems we were having not pertaining to the accommodation. Such empathetic, considerate, warm and caring people, they... More

We found our first floor, two bedroom apartment to be very comfortable and stylish. So comfortable that we extended our stay for another night! The apartment was very tastefully furnished, and was equipped really well with top quality goods. The views from our apartment were stunning. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Whilst at Hanmer Springs we went mountain... More

We were in Hanmer Springs for a wedding and we stayed in apartment 8 (2 bedroom) for 4 nights in total starting at the end of January. As soon as I opened the door to our apartment the wow factor was evident and was nice to hear my family respond in the same way. The Village Lake Apartments are modern,... More

We happened to stay here (unplanned) for two nights with other family members. It was a stunning place, with fabulous accommodation, and amenities within the apartment. The only thing that let this place down was the cheap toilet paper in the bathrooms....out of sync with the other amenities! We had some fabulous family meals here, because the place was so... More

This review will be very short. Fairly expensive but worth it. Every aspect of the stay was superb, large modern room, beautifully furnished, immaculately clean, wonderful view and best of all a good bed. P.s. The staff were nice as we'll.

Recommended to us by friends, we booked 1 night in the Village Lake Apartments in beautiful Hanmer Springs. The rooms are large (min. 2 bedrooms) which was very nice having stayed with friends for 10 days. They were modern, clean, well appointed, quiet and very restful. Need to work on the mood lighting in the living area and the reading... More
