This place deserves all its great reviews. It was lovely to have such a peacefull unit with a LARGE amount of space to unpack our days shopping in Christchurch in.
It was beautifully appointed with a lot of thought going into the appliances used, the decor and even the toiletries showed that care had been taken to make things just so. And certainly, having a second toilet in the room is great when the mother wants a soak in the bath and the boys need to use the facilities! Also the little aside from the mananger on using the lights in the bathroom at night, much appreciated!
Being able to borrow towels to take to the pools after our check out was a great perk! Nobody wants to drive around with wet towels in their car, so than you.
I am sure if we had come in winter, the gas log fire would have been a wonderful way to keep warm and watch the snow fall, but alas, not this trip.

At $275 per night for a 2-bedroom apartment, it is not the cheapest accommodation in Hanmer Springs, but this place wasn't built or decorated on a budget either. From the beds to the kitchenware, from the sheets and curtains to the toilettries, everything was of high quality and felt luxurious. The gas fire was perfect and warmed up the apartment very nicely. The apartments are located on a very quiet street, yet easy walking distance to the hot pools, shops and restaurants.
Around 8:00 PM we received a call from the office, saying they were about to close and was there anything we needed. I thought this was very thoughtful.
Free towels are provided for a visit to the hot pools.
Just thinking of that comfortable bed makes me want to go back!

Room Tip: Don't book anywhere else in Hanmer

Stayed here as part of a road trip around New Zealand. The decor and facilities is of the highest quality. Well situated and I wished I lived there permanently. The fireplace is delightful and really sets the scene. I wished I was there for longer as it is a lovely apartment.

Stayed here in January 2013 with a girlfriend. We decided we wanted to stay somewhere that was nicer than our own home. Well we certainly got that. This motel is lovely, it was spacious, clean, beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen well-equipped. In fact we decided to eat in both nights, as we enjoyed the feeling of the motel, enjoyed sitting on the balcony, and enjoying the view. Will definitely stay again.

We stayed here for one night during a road trip of the South Island. Four of us stayed in a 2 bed unit which was very clean and comfortable. The property is right in the centre of the town. We did use the washing machine etc which was very good but we ate out. The beds were comfortable and toiletries and welcome teas etc very good - needed more milk as you seem to get one small bottle whether byou are a 2 or 4 but not a problem. Only downside was the BBQ was dirty but this was probably just an oversight. We had driven through the Molesworth station which is the biggest farm in New Zealand. The scenery is stunning here. We ate out in the town and had a very good meal Can't remember the name of the restaurant at the mo but will let you know if it comes to me

We only had one night in Hanmer Springs, but would love to have had more. We found the accommodation and service at Village Lake Apartments outstanding. The location is perfect. Rooms well appointed and beautifully finished. Would highly recommend.

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!
