We stayed here about two years ago and booked a similar room being a two bedroom apartment. It was spotless and had great amenities for cooking at eating your own meals. The room had an extended lounge kitchen with central island worktop. as well as washer and dryer. Located in the center of town only a short distance from the...

The apartment was really close to the town centre; just a few minutes walk away. The two bedrooms were private. The beds were comfortable with more than adequate bedding and pillows. The windows in all rooms allowed excellent light, even though the days were overcast and wet. The lighting was well situated once natural light had faded. The lounge was...

Located in almost a cul de sac walkeable distance to town center and restaurants very pleasant views. The product and rooms are second to none with great amenities in a very tasteful decor. We could have easily stayed there for a week. The managers are very friendly and helpful. It was a great experience wish we could have stayed longer....

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with four people. We arrived into NZ on a 5am flight so were exhausted, Hanmer Springs was our first stop. We asked for an early check in when we got there and the lady was very friendly and found us a room we could go in early to for an extra $30. She recommended...

We spent the weekend at Hamner in a three bedroomed apartment at the Village Lake Apartments. This unit was stunning, pure luxury. The apartment had everything you needed. It was very quiet but on a couple of minutes to walk into the main street and restaurants. Would highly recommend staying there.

Having to juggle our NZ itinerary around due to our train bookings being cancelled for operational reasons, we booked a couple of nights here in Hanmer. Damned good choice Col. Just what we needed after tramping down south - a couple of nights of 5 star luxury accommodation in these lovely apartment. Ours had views to Conical Hill. Large Queen...

I found the facilities top class and the view next to the lake so relaxing. The rooms are modern and quiet, Jill and Stu were great hosts - friendly and nothing was a problem. Would definitely stay there again.

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...
