Expectations of these apartments live up to the good reviews. Modern very spacious , well designed in a quiet location. Well equiped kitchen and all very tastefully decorated this has to be one of the better apartments we stayed in during out south island tour. The only minor critism was the noisey toilet fan. Beds were excellent. A great stay.... More

The apartments here have everything you could possibly need during your stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is more than enough info provided on local restaurants and activities. The location is a short 2 minute walk to the main shops but still manages to maintain a sense of quietness in the surroundings. The bed here was probably the... More

Overall This is a very nice apartment suitable for couples or a family group. Nice decor, great views, very handy to the pools. Book swap at reception a friendly touch. All the kitchen and laundry equipment you could need. Gas fire and double glazing ensured a warm stay. Unfortunately a few things let them down. The bathroom sink was broken,... More

We stayed here in December 2013 on a weekend break from Christchurch and all I can say is wow! We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was amazing - so much space, beautifully decorated, very comfy beds and an amazing bathroom with jacuzzi. We had a lovely sunny balcony with loads of space. Only a couple of minutes walk into... More

Recently my 2 friends and myself spent 5 days in Hanmer Springs and stayed at this fantastic accommodation. It is by far the best I have stayed in for a long time. It was exceptionally clean, spacious, very well decorated and had fantastic views, with the lake just outside our dining room door and the snow capped mountains in the... More

We had a lovely few days in Hanmer made even more memorable by the great accommodation and service. The apartments are private and warm. The heating is perfect and facilities certainly luxurious. Just a short walk from the town or just stay in for a comfortable getaway.

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment on the first floor with a view of the little lake and the resident ducks!. The apartment was beautiful, spacious, well decorated and had a large kitchen area with a laundry. We had two bathrooms and another toilet. The staff were professional and friendly. An ideal place to stay as it was only... More

We stayed in a number of hotels in New Zealand but this one was by far the nicest and most luxurious and spacious. Our family of 4 were more than comfortable in the 2 bedroom apartment with a wonderful large gas fireplace and the feather underlays on all the beds were to die for.

Amazing. We've stayed in a few places on our trip through New Zealand, and this has been the best by miles. Pure luxury. En-suite and double in the main bed, double in another, and 2 singles in another kept the crew of 5 of us more than comfortable. Awesome bathrooms, and massive living area. The managers were also so nice,... More

After an unfortunate start to our holiday in Hanmer where we turned up to our accommodation only to be told there was no booking (even though we had a written confirmation & had been in touch several times) we were literally "saved" by Village Lake Apartments & we could not have been happier. Our family stayed in the St James... More
