Recent guest reviews

We booked a 3 bedroom suite for our family of five adults over Christmas. We were impressed by the website photos but once we arrived we were blown away by how spacious it actually was & with a great layout. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed & more. Extremely spotless, quality bedding & fixtures. Loved the balcony & how quiet it was even through the night with windows open. Lovely friendly & helpful hosts. We look forward to returning. Have a Happy New Year.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. The views coming in to Hanmer Springs (from Nelson) were just amazing... but it also meant that we were exhausted by the time we arrived at Hanmer. We were met by one of the owners who was lovely and gave us some suggestions for things around the town before showing us to our room. The accommodation is lovely! The rooms have new lush carpet and the living room was large and comfortable with double bifold doors opening to a small porch area - where we sat for our breakfast or in the afternoon with a glass of wine. The living area has a gas fireplace - which added to the ambience of the room. The kitchen was great - it's large and well set out. And there is a mini-bottle of milk for you on arrival - enough for a couple of cups of tea, or two cereal bowls (additional milk is easily purchased for $2 from reception - or across the street at the supermarket). There is 1G of internet per day for free - but if you need more, you can purchase extra. For holidayers - 1G was more than enough. The beds were comfy - although soft (I usually prefer a firmer mattress). I ended up opening the windows at night also - as the rooms seemed to stay quite warm overnight (I think the floors are heated) - but it was quiet, so that wasn't an issue. Whilst the units don't have tennis court facilities - the hotel next door does offer use of their courts for people wanting to play. The hotel also has pool towels for use at the local hotpools (if you get one at the hot pools themselves, they charge). The owners gave us some travelling tips as we were heading off - which we were later, very grateful for!!! (Thank-you!!) Overall - lovely property and lovely owners, which made for a great stay!! I would definitely recommend this place to others visiting the area.

We stayed at this luxurious apartment complex in Hanmer - everything was perfect. The suite was large and very well appointed. Couldn’t fault it at all! It is centrally located so you can walk everywhere and the views from our balcony - breathtaking!

Lovely apartment, modern, spotless, comfortable, spacious...superb bed, lovely linen. Friendly helpful hosts. Quiet location, indoor outdoor flow. Would highly recommend...would stay again in a heartbeat.

Stayed for 1 night , superb accommodation , very clean and luxurious, free parking, allowed to leave car for the day after checking out. Towels provide for use in nearby hot springs.Great hosts , highly recommend, 5 stars

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment and were amazed by not only the space but also the stunning views despite its close proximity to the village. The apartment was very clean and well appointed, with everything we could want in it.

So relaxing. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. This is a must for a family. Like a holiday home with all the extras of a hotel .... Close to everything, walk everywhere. Very private rooms inside and out.

Sales team meeting for 12 people - The team at VLA really assisted to make it a very successful team event. 5 out 5. They organised accommodation converted one of the apartments into a meeting room / all catering covered and also arranged the team building activity with quad bike adventure. It was so easy - Thanks Jill & Stuart for pulling it all together.

We recently stayed in stayed in the Village Lake Apartments for a 4 night stay. We wanted to visit the Garden Fete and the Art in the Garden events and Hamner was a convenient drive through the lovely countryside away. The Village Lake Apartments exceeded our expectations! We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and it was even better then we expected. Its beautifully furnished, spacious and immaculately clean. The sheets were lovely. The owners Jill and Stuart were very helpful recommending where to get the best coffee and where to eat. They mentioned that they have regulars that have been back 10+ years and I can understand why. All in all a great stay and we will definitely be back.

great place to stay well looked after clean comfortable all amenities and great hosts cant fault it a great luxury stay thats very affordable nice out look extremely quiet and so close to everything will be back again
