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.

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.

It was spacious,the furnishings good quality and comfortable - two lounges, a dining table and chairs and a good sized and very well equipped kitchen. There was a beautiful gas (?) fire... More
