Great accommodation. Perfect location. He people that run this place are super friendly. The beds are like sleeping on clouds, seriously the best bed I have slept on ever. We have just purchased some feather down thing for our bed at home. Thanks heaps and see you again

Lovely place to stay in Hanmer Springs, we had a large 3 bedroom apartment and a variety of family with us. Super kitchen and space. The beds are sooooo comfortable. We were there in the snow and loved it so came back the next week on our drive back up to Wellington. Walking to shops and pools. Bliss.

We stayed here for 2 nights and really wished we could have stayed longer. The 2 bedroom apartment was wonderful, clean and luxurious. The kitchen was well equipped as was the small laundry. Underfloor heating in the kitchen and bathroom made it very cosy. Loved just relaxing in the lounge room with the fire going, sipping wine and looking out over the lake and mountains, then retiring to the warm comfortable beds. Bliss! Easy walk into the village and to the hot springs.

This is simply one of the best apartments I have stayed in throughout travels in a number of countries. Attention to detail is apparent from the moment I arrived, with courteous and helpful service readily offered. Rooms are wonderfully presented and clean, with special toiletries and full facilities for laundry. Excellent heating makes any stay comfortable and restful. Highly recommended and congratulations to Jill and Stuart for a successful operation.

Excellent accommodation. The apartments are really well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The fire is wonderful when snowing outside. The service is outstanding and we managed to stay an extra night due to road closures. Nothing was too much trouble. Would strongly recommend this property.

We shared a 3 bedroom apartment and it was perfect. We visit Hanmer fairly often but this is the first time at Village Lake , and I would definitely be keen to return. Plenty of space, lovely and warm, gas fire was fantastic, quality linens, amazing beds and great showers, enough sofas for 5 of us to lounge comfortably. Full kitchen..everything worked. Enough free internet for 4 teens, Great views across the little lake, and 3 minute walk to the pools. We knew the weather would mean a fair amount of inside time would be needed..and no better place to be inside than here. Thanks, was brilliant!

My friend and I went up to Hanmer Springs to walk the Mount Isobel track and decided to stay somewhere with a touch of luxury. Village lake apartments were lovely. Very spacious, well equipped and very clean. The beds were super comfortable and there was even a choice of pillows to choose from to suit individual needs. There was a spa bath with a shower over the bath. The water pressure was ok (I've had better) with the main bedroom having access to that bathroom from the bedroom. Gas heating made for a comfortably warm environment. A few issues with getting the fire to start at times but got those sorted eventually. The only complaint I had was that there was absolutely nowhere to hang or place your clothes in the bathroom other than on the toilet. No hooks at all. The fan in the bathroom and toilet came on automatically due to the toilet and bathroom being on internals walls and ran for quite some time after the light went out so could be noisey at times. Lastly there was a very slight stagnant water smell in the bathroom which I think is due to the spa bath. Not sure how it can be remidied but definitely noticeable. The owners are lovely and nothing is a hassle. Would definitely stay again

Great place, great service and very accommodating owners. It's probably the best place to stay in Hanmer with its central location and the fact you can still get a great nights sleep with the noise. Our go to place when wanting a luxury stay away in Hanmer.

We have been here a few times now and love coming back. As normal was not disappointed. Worth the price every time. The beds are really comfy and the gas fire is so nice on a cold winter night. They let us have a late checkout as well

Had a lovely long weekend here with my husband. Room was amazing. So spacious and warm with the fire. Great location - handy walking distance to everything you'd want to do. Hosts were lovely and their dog was a wee cutie. Will definitely be back 😀
