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 😀

Apartment was wonderful, warm, well equipped. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Great Location, great view, hospitality was exceptional. Could not fault the place. Will be my first choice to stay on my future visits.

right from the initial telephone conversation I could tell that we were going to be well looked after, the friendly helpful personality of Jill just made us feel welcome . We arrived and found ourselves in a fantastic 3 bedroom apartment over looking a small lake with outstanding mountain views the place was immaculately presented and every consideration to our comfort and well being had been thought of Stu kindly showed us through the unit pointing out various features . I couldn't believe how warm the apartment was or the level of comfort we had , right from the gas fire to the fantastic comfortable beds We had 3 couples staying and were completely comfortable and had our privacy as well it was a perfect getaway . I have stayed in a few spots in Hanmer this how ever was a different level . with out a doubt we will be back a fantastic place well done Stu and Jill

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 cafes, shops and pools. Will stay again.

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 in Hanmer Springs - we have found our new home away from home. :)

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 us Tumeric (!) a key missing ingredient to assist in us cooking dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here making our time in Hanmer extra special. Would return to these apartments in a heartbeat.

This was our second stay at Village Lake Apartments, previously we stayed for a romantic weekend away, and this second time was a family visit. 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 it was all of the highest quality. The owners are so welcoming and just made our stay so enjoyable and relaxing, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Hanmer.
