Best location in Hammer and as always the most welcoming. From the pond out front of our apartment with ducks swimming away happily to the plush furnishings and high comfort level, we instantly felt at home and ready to relax. We stayed in the Rutherford Suite this time and loved the spaciousness and home away from home feel immediately. I... More

We stayed at the village lake apartments for only one night, however a long days travel we were very pleased when walking through the apartment door. After a quick and informative check in we entered the apartment to find the room was heated for our arrival - which was required with temperatures well below zero during our stay. The apartment...

I have just spent a fabulous weekend here with a big group of people. The apartments are really nice, and big, and in a great location. The people are lovely and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here.

We stay here every year now and have for about the last 5 or 6. There is always a friendly welcome, the units are extremely well kept with all you need for your stay. It gets to the point where you don't want to leave, they are just so comfy, warm and spacious!!

We recently stayed for 5 nights at Village Lake Apartments - it was to have been 3 nights but we were just too comfortable to leave. All the positive stuff has been said before but I would recommend this place 110%. And the comfort of the beds,,,,outstanding!

What a fabulous place to stay. Very modern and spacious, and the gas fire was very cosy when returning from the pools on a cold winters night. Just a five minute walk to pools and restaurants/cafes/shops etc, and very peaceful setting. Looking forward to our next visit.

We recently stayed 3 nights at Village Lake Apartments. Location was perfect - 3 minute stroll to the pools and village centre. We had an upstairs apartment with view of fresh snow on surrounding hills. The apartment had everything - great gas log fire, the most comfy bed, great bathroom, laundry, fully equipped kitchen - all top quality! NO traffic... More

Loved our stay at the Village Lakes Apartments. Our host was so helpful and assisted us with everything we needed. We stayed in apartment number 4 on the ground floor which had views back out over the snow topped mountains. The apartment was extremely well appointed and the bed is one of the best I have ever slept in! The... More

We stayed for 2 nights with two other couples in one of the 3-bedroom apartments. The apartment had everything we needed including a decent kitchen and 2 bathrooms, one with spa bath. The location is superb being only a few minutes walk from the centre of town, and overlooking a peaceful lake. Would absolutely recommend and will definitely return.

What a beautiful place. The room was exquisite, very modern with lovely furnishings. Everything was included in the kitchen, and so convenient. The location was perfect for our little walks to town and the hot springs. The view from the balcony was beautiful and we really did feel like we were in a little Swiss town.
