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. The leaves are turning... More

Modern, luxury with everything you could need in the units. The management here was fantastic - incredibly helpful, friendly and accommodating. So great for our family (two nine year olds, grandparents, my husband & I) with space and comfort to spare. A short walk to the town centre where there are fantastic restaurants, shops, grocery store, & the best of... More

If you are looking for a modern, luxurious and spacious apartment in Hanmer then look no further. Perfect location, excellent accomodation and very well serviced. Didn't try the breakfast as an easy walk into town gave us more options. The only reason they didn't get five stars is the acoustics. We could hear footsteps and the TV from the apartment... More

Very comfortable and spacious apartments in a nice settings, and great friendly service. Located in easy walking distance to the village center. We were lucky enough to get the number 2 apartment, which looks out over the lake.
