We stayed for two nights - a large group in one two bedroom and two three bedroom apartments. Facilities were excellent though the bedrooms a little small and wardrobes too close to the door, making access awkward. The safe was at floor level and we never did find out how to operate it. The lounge dining rooms were large with... More

This is our second stay and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Hanmer. The beds are so comfy with top quality linen. Very clean apartments and big kitchen with everything provided. Only downside with travelling with family is that if you are staying a few nights they service room about 2-4pm which can be a bit inconvenient if you have... More

Stayed here for a long weekend at the end of April. Apartments are fantastic. Everything you could want, nice and warm inside, and easy 5 min walk to centre of town and pools. We loved Hanmer, and no doubt next time we go we will be staying in one of these apartments again

Stayed here for one night, wish it could have been longer. We stayed in a three bedroom suite, and it was just absolutely fantastic. The room had a beautiful gas fire, and all the amenities that you would require. We made full use of the kitchen while staying there. The man who checked us in was also lovley and welcoming....

This was one of the best accommodation of our trip - short walk to town, spacious, luxurious and comfortable! Nice and warm with the fireplace in the lounge. Highly recommended if you are staying in Hanmer Springs

We were here for one night on our south island trip. I must say this was one of the best luxurious apartment i have ever stayed. Rooms were big and spacious. Everything was so clean and tidy that you cannot find a single fault. Lounge had a big fireplace. Bathroom had a spa bath in it. Highly recommended to luxury... More

Hosts Brian and Cathy are welcoming from the moment you arrive and helpful with local tips and information. The apartment is first class. Well appointed with quality fittings and furnishings throughout. Even the bathroom products are of the highest quality. We couldn't fault this property.

8 of us stayed in 2 - 2 bedroom apartments. Very spacious and warm. Close to the main street and restaurants. The only thing I could fault is no mirrors in either of the rooms. You will fall in love with the bed linen!

Rooms are large and well appointed. Hosts are helpful and friendly. Very nice touch having free towels for the hot pools that guests do not have to wash. Lake was drained when we were there but view would be lovely from balconey when it is full again. Beds were comfortable and location quiet. Would stay again.

Have you ever viewed photos of apartments, when making your choice for where to stay, and been disappointed? Well you wont be with Village Lake apartments. The photos live up to the promise. The apartments are luxurious and a good size. A warm welcome with underfloor heating and gas fire. Many nice touches like wool throws on the comfortable beds,... More
