stayed 2 nights here. Great apartment - really comfortable and well equipped. Great location - easy walk through to the town. Nice swimming pool to use and an easy walk to the thermal pools. View from the balcony was pretty too and easily accessed through the double opening patio doors. Would not hesitate to return

This has to be the most luxurious apartment we have ever stayed in!! Five stars? No way ten stars!!! Could not fault a single thing! Service was excellent, location perfect! Walking distance to everything including the hot springs and Isobel's restaurant at Heritage which was out of this world! We were actually closer to the restaurant than some of the... More

We were only going to stay one night originally but then stayed 3. The apartment was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Beds were like sleeping on clouds! Handy for the hot springs, shops and cafe's. Highly recommend these apartments.

The Village Lake Apartments was only supposed to be a quick stopover on our way from Motueka to Christchurch airport so we didn't expect much but ended up being very pleasantly surprised. The room was huge and very nicely furnished. Unlike all the other motels we had stayed at it had it's own washing machine and dryer and even a... More

Hello Aka Seth, We appreciate you taking the time to write this review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are disappointed and concerned that the spa bath was not up to standard as we pride our selves on making sure everything is absolutely spotless so I am at a loss to understand how the bath was not...

A wonderful couple of nights spent in lovely surroundings. Apartments are extremely comfortable and with plenty of room. The weather was beautiful so was lovely sitting with the doors open onto the balcony and enjoying the view, even if it was over the beautiful gardens of the Heritage! The beds are super comfortable and it was very peaceful.

We had to come back, couldn't resist after a wonderful stay in February we returned to enjoy the beautifully appointed luxurious apartment once again. The beds are so comfortable and the location is perfect, just walk to town. The owners are so helpful and nothing is a problem, great hosts. Never stayed anywhere better in NZ.

The luxury apartment tag given to these apartments is well deserved. The apartments are large and well appointed. The kitchen facilities are excellent with quality appliances and everything else you need. Wonderful gas fire. Beds are super comfy and the double spa bath in the bathroom is extra special.
