5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2011

I recently stayed at this great accommodation for two nights, 31 Oct & 1st Nov (wished I coudl have stayed longer). The rooms are really well finished and have everything you could possibly need, very clean and what great views....!! The balcony was the perfect for a wine and place to sit and watch the world go by, such a relaxing beautiful part of the world. The owners & staff were very helpful and friendly. Has only been open 2.5 years so everything is still new and fresh. Motel is in easy walking distance of everything in Hanmer. Will be back !Highly recommend. Donna K.

Room Tip: Book early I am sure they wil fill up fast once this spot becomes more well known

Village Lake Apartments has truly fantastic service and apartments to match.
The apartments are very centrally located but off the main street so were very quiet. There were 3 of us sharing the 2 bed apartment and we all agreed that it was a great stay - the apartment had a fully fitted kitchen with everything you could think of needing; heated floors in the beautiful bathroom and kitchen, great beds and lots of small considered touches e.g. make up remover, a small bottle of milk when you arrive, complimentary teas, coffee and crisps.
What really makes this place stand out though is the service - Cathy is one of the best hosts we have met; from calling to make the booking to when we checked out - 1st rate service.
We would only ever stay here when visiting Hanmer in future.

Units are lovely, very spacious and well appointed with luxury fittings. Loved everything, especially the beds. Perhaps the only let down was the outdoor lighting filtering into the twin bedroom at night, not much to complain about. The complex is centrally located but quiet and peaceful. It only takes you about 2 mins to get to the main drag and spa pools. Internet is $5 a day.

we were a group of 6 so a 3bed apartment in Hanmer was just great - 3 good sized bedrooms - 2 ensuite - and big open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge. All you could want, staff were helpful and friendly. Close to everything but sufficiently away to be quiet. Thoroughly recommend this modern and well kept apartment

Room Tip: we stayed in the 3 bed executive apartment although obviously there are other smaller units

We stayed for three nights in these beautiful apartments and couldn't be happier. Really well fit out with a stylish decor, it was all so relaxing. Loved the gas fireplace and heavenly bath products but most of all loved the beds.
Everything is close by and there are free towels for the thermal pool. You do pay for wifi but it was reasonably priced and fast.
The apartments were well worth spending a bit extra on.

Room Tip: Upstairs is quiet

This was ourt 2nd visit in 6 months. Chose to come back because of the well appointed and clean apartments. Located just a few minutes walk from the main street of the village in a quiet street. Management are very friendly and efficient. Products in the room are fantastic! The beds are probably the niciest we have experienced anywhere which makes for great sleep. The kitchen is very user friendly and everything that you would need to prepare meals or snacks. The spacious living room with the comfortable couch and gas fireplace is great place to relax and have a wine.Would recommend these apartments to anyone!
