Following a warm reception and being made to feel very welcome, we were given a huge suite which was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. Our hosts were very helpful and the staff all seemed to be very helpful, happy and bright. Parking could have been a problem because of the small car park, but Hanmer is compact and everything...

We arrived for our stay at Village Lake Apartments and were very warmly welcomed by Jill and Stuart. A mix up (not by the motel) meant we were allocated a three bedroom suite, although we were only two couples. So it was a very spacious unit, with wide opening doors on two aspects to the nicely landscaped surroundings. This all...

We only spent one night here, in a 3 bedroom apartment (right next to the lake) but were completely happy with the amenities and the service provided. The apartment was very luxurious, with a well-equipped kitchen for cooking, and the hosts very welcoming. They swapped pillows to cater for an asthmatic in the family, and they contacted us after we...

A really very good and nice to stay. It's our only choice of accommodation in Hanmer Springs. Look for no other! The welcoming staff is great and the complimentary towels when you go to the pools is even a bonus.

This condo is clean, big, open, and the kitchen is fully equipped for all of your cooking needs. Jill and Stuart are friendly, welcoming and will help with anything you need. The view is absolutely spectacular and we loved walking around Hanmer springs to shop, eat, and sight see. We went on a great jet boat ride and spent part...

Just reached here earlier today and it was really easy to find. The rooms are spacious and very well kept. The bath tub has jacuzzi functions too! And most importantly, very friendly and helpful staff.

We visited Hanmer Springs on Show Weekend and stayed for three nights, Friday to Monday. We have stayed in the apartments before and loved them so much that we returned with our whole extended family for a long weekend together. The apartments are clean, beautifully furnished, very well appointed with a full kitchen, and warm and cosy with underfloor heating...

Fantastic apartment! We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment. Great service. We needed to leave very early next day do front desk arranged to have our breakfast delivered the night before. Bed was so comfortable. Not that we needed it but it was so easy that we turned on the fire. The warm bathroom tiles made it very cosy. Nice views...

“top floor has best views and quieter because there's no one above you, but our bottom floor had a great walk out patio and great view too.”

“All rooms were quiet - however I would choose an upper level apartment just in case of inconsiderate guests.”

“No tips, I imagine that all of the rooms are fantastic, however I am sure that the ones closer to the lake have a better view.”

“In winter maybe better to have room on the bottom due to ice on the steps. All rooms are large and warm.”
