A friendly welcome by Cathy got our two stay stay at the Village Lake apartments off to a great start.
The apartment was just as described as on the website, very stylish furnishings, cosy gasfire and stunning kitchen. We were especially pleased to find enough crockery, glassware etc for more than three people; so many places we've stayed only seem to have two or three settings for some reason.
The two bedrooms were a little small, but the living/dining area was quite large with two very comfy sofas, a table with six chairs.
Cathy had offered to book any tours etc for us, so we called to see if she could book us a private pool at the hot springs, which she did, and even gave us a discount voucher. Such excellent service. They also provide complimentary towels for the hot springs.
My tip is to ask for a top floor apartment; we had the groundfloor and there was really no view to speak of, plus it sounded like a hord of elephants were staying upstairs. We could hear every footfall, doorclose and toilet flush unfortunately. Our light fixtures even started rattling at one stage, I don't know what they were doing upstairs, but it couldn't have been anything good ! I know it's difficult to control this type of this, but it did mar our stay.
The apartments are an easy 5 min walk to the hot springs plus the shops and cafes that Hanmer has to offer.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay, the service was excellent and the apartments very stylish and comfortable.
