Stayed two nights, travelling with our two kids and another family. Such a great spot - apartments have everything you need, very warm, spacious and comfortable. They have been done to a very high standard. Loved the toiletries and amenities and the attempts to minimise unnecessary waste of small plastic bottles. Great location just a few miniatures walk to the...

What was not to love about this amazing location. Close to everything and our apartment - Wow it was spacious and luxurious. The gas log fire was just lovely, the view over the pond with the ducks in it superb. Thank you to our wonderful hosts, could not have been more friendly and helpful. See you next time we are...

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment at the Village Lake Apartments. It was well equipped, very clean and modern, warm, spacious and had a wonderful outlook. The location is fantastic, around the corner from the Hot Pools, the local high street and supermarket. The site managers are very friendly, gracious and incredibly helpful - amongst other items they found...

The apartment we stayed in this time was just as perfect as previously, with plenty of space for us all and the most comfortable beds ever. The apartment had everything we could possibly need, and...

We recently stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment. Upon arrival we were met by the managers who were very accommodating and friendly. The apartment was superb and had well appointed facilities. It was modern, had a feel of spaciousness and spotlessly clean. Village Lake Apartments are situated in the centre of Hanmer Springs with all the restaurants and cafes within...

The room had an extended lounge kitchen with central island worktop. as well as washer and dryer. Located in the center of town only a short distance from the...

The apartment was really close to the town centre; just a few minutes walk away. The two bedrooms were private. The beds were comfortable with more than adequate bedding and pillows. The windows in all rooms allowed excellent light, even though the days were overcast and wet. The lighting was well situated once natural light had faded. The lounge was...

Located in almost a cul de sac walkeable distance to town center and restaurants very pleasant views. The product and rooms are second to none with great amenities in a very tasteful decor. We could have easily stayed there for a week. The managers are very friendly and helpful. It was a great experience wish we could have stayed longer....

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with four people. We arrived into NZ on a 5am flight so were exhausted, Hanmer Springs was our first stop. We asked for an early check in when we got there and the lady was very friendly and found us a room we could go in early to for an extra $30. She recommended...
