My second stay here and 'twas even better than the first time. 3bedroom apartment, absolutely gorgeous . . . gorgeous views from two walls of windows in lounge, gorgeous fittings and layout of apartment, soothing colour scheme, attractive floral arrangements and paintings, amazingly comfortable beds, warm, spacious, spotlessly clean, full kitchen, roomy showers, two toilets, 4 minute walk from town, and from that delightful bakery. . . . I could rave on and on .Lovely touch leaving 4 complimentary chocolates for us. Wanted to stay here for ages! Booked for a longer stay next time, in a couple of months.
Minuses would be - not being guaranteed a specific apartment as requested for next booking; having to park on street after evening at hot pools (have to get in early for a park); and coffee pot not large enough for 4 people's worth of morning coffee.
As for Hanmer, I think it's a lovely retreat for holiday-people. Shopkeepers and businesses treat visitors with courtesy and good cheer so one feels like shopping or visiting there again. Each time I go I find something different and new to do. I also like all the different ages out and about, walking around the town. It feels safe. And I have come to adore the hot pools - especially the HOT sulphur pool, and doing lengths in the cold pool. Wonderful. Money well spent . . .
Yay for Hanmer! :)

After a great walk off down to the hot pools and then back to Apartment ...brilliant accommodation every conceivable furnishing & white ware appliance available....the icing on the cake was the luxurious bed... "Heaven on Earth". Amazingly didn't wake until 10 the next day...the heavy dark curtains tricked us into a false security lol

Room Tip: Set your alarm as it is very quite & rooms dark---otherwise you will sleep in!!

We stayed in a 2 bed apartment, in a word it was stunning. I would stay here again. The managers were most helpful too. Close to town for restaurants and pools, though we did drive. The beds were pure luxury.

We stayed in apartment 8 - two bedroom, one full bathroom and another separate toilet, spacious lounge, dining and well-equipped kitchen. Very nicely furnished, comfortable and stylish, with great views. Honestly one of the best beds I have ever slept in. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. We came away for a special weekend with our 12 year old daughter and the Village Lake Apartments was a great choice to stay. We would highly recommend for other visitors wanting something special.

We recently visited Hanmer Springs and spent five nights in these beautifully appointed apartments with such sumptuous beds, but the best part was the couple managing this apartment who were so incredibly helpful, they went over and above to help us remedy some problems we were having not pertaining to the accommodation. Such empathetic, considerate, warm and caring people, they were like good friends. Incredible hospitality. Do stay at this place it is absolutely fabulous.

We found our first floor, two bedroom apartment to be very comfortable and stylish. So comfortable that we extended our stay for another night! The apartment was very tastefully furnished, and was equipped really well with top quality goods. The views from our apartment were stunning. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Whilst at Hanmer Springs we went mountain biking, rafting and experienced the hot springs of course. Would readily stay here again.
