Just reached here earlier today and it was really easy to find. The rooms are spacious and very well kept. The bath tub has jacuzzi functions too! And most importantly, very friendly and helpful staff.

We visited Hanmer Springs on Show Weekend and stayed for three nights, Friday to Monday. We have stayed in the apartments before and loved them so much that we returned with our whole extended family for a long weekend together. The apartments are clean, beautifully furnished, very well appointed with a full kitchen, and warm and cosy with underfloor heating... More

Bed was so comfortable. Not that we needed it but it was so easy that we turned on the fire. The warm bathroom tiles made it very cosy. Nice views... More

Very comfortable modern apartment complex. We had a ground floor apartment in a two level complex. Fully self contained to a high standard. Gas fire and heated floor - so very cosy. I had an unexpected health issue and there was no issue adjusting our arrival dates slightly with the manager - at short notice. Very enjoyable stay enhanced by... More

Great central location, clean and warm. Walking distance to the village, pools and the forest riding/walking tracks. Good service from the super friendly owners and a perfect size for a family of 4. Can recommend these apartments.

We like to thank Bryan for helping us to check other available apartment for us. In fact, we booked a wrong date with Village Lake Apartment and only realize it when we wanted to check in. There was no vacancy on that day at this apartment. Thus he had tried to find other apartments for us and there was no... More

We stayed at one of the three bedroom apartments. Amazingly helpful service, very clean, warm and well equipped. A short walk from everything and they supplied extra towels for the hot pools. They even folded our cloths and went out of their way to contact us when we left our cloths in the dryer.

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

“All rooms were quiet - however I would choose an upper level apartment just in case of inconsiderate guests.”

“All rooms quiet with excellent insulation and good heating so very warm in winter”

“No tips, I imagine that all of the rooms are fantastic, however I am sure that the ones closer to the lake have a better view.”
