Village Lake Apartments

Reviewed 20 January 2013

Wow, this is my new favourite place to stay in Hanmer Springs!

We had a two bedroom apartment, and were sorry to only have booked for one night. The room was very spacious, and fully equipped with everything a family needs for a great holiday. Comfy beds and top line furnishings and fittings make this a luxurious family accommodation.

The hosts were very helpful, nothing was any trouble.
Can we store our bike in the lockup - sure!
Need some towels for the pools - help yourself, just put the wet towels back in the basket when you're done.
We checked out, but they were happy to let us leave the car in their car park until we were ready to head home.

Highly recommended - we will stay more than one night next time!

Had one night here in early December. Was really impressed by the standard of the accommodation, kitchen had great facilities, lovely decor throughout, service was great - some of the best accommodation i've stayed in in New Zealand - highly recommend.

Room Tip: If you're from Christchurch ask for an upstairs room as if you're downstairs the people walk...

We feel compelled to share our experiences at the Village Lake apartments. We have stayed there several times now, and enjoy each stay better than the last. The apartments are very spacious, the kitchen is totally equiped with everything you would need. The beds are the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. Brian and Kathy are the perfect Managers for this complex, friendly, welcoming and totally prepared to make your stay the best it could be. If you are considering a weekend break, or longer stay this complex takes alot of beating. We look forward to more fun times with you in 2013.

Room Tip: All units are fabulous

As the title suggests its just like the brochure and more . Check in was fast all mod cons fantastic space we had a two bedroom unit mod kitchen LCD tv's etc spa bath. The only thing missing was air con as it was a stinking hot day when we got there and all you could do was open the windows. Other than that all very good . They did however have a fan that we used

The Rooms are amazing spacious and pure bliss...The kitchen is full equipped and lounge has all the comforts of home...
The Apartment is a short walk away from the Village and the Hot Springs.
Thank you for a wonderful weekend...

very nice welcome
apartments situated just outside town center, 600 m from hot springs; views are not special
host told us that they wanted to create a space, where one would feel at home: it is perfectly succeeded
with style decorated, spacious, modern apartments with a very warm atmosphere , close to the hot springs, which are better than those of Rotorua. Off street parking
fully equiped ktchen and washing facility
Visit the pools especially when it gets dark.
