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...

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...

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,...

We did use the washing machine etc which was very good but we ate out. The beds were comfortable and toiletries...

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...

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...

“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.”
