This review will be very short. Fairly expensive but worth it. Every aspect of the stay was superb, large modern room, beautifully furnished, immaculately clean, wonderful view and best of all a good bed. P.s. The staff were nice as we'll.

Recommended to us by friends, we booked 1 night in the Village Lake Apartments in beautiful Hanmer Springs. The rooms are large (min. 2 bedrooms) which was very nice having stayed with friends for 10 days. They were modern, clean, well appointed, quiet and very restful. Need to work on the mood lighting in the living area and the reading...

The unit has everything needed for a family to live, washup and dine comfortably. Very new and modern. Just not when in general new zealand apartments say spa bath included it means slighlty bigger than a normal bath tub with jets fitted.

This spacious apartment had everything from the fully equipped kitchen to the best hotel bedding I have ever slept upon. It is just a short walk to the pools and local shops. A little on the expensive side, but well worth it for a special occasion. The extra touches like complimentary fudge and a good array of teas and coffee...

This apartment has everything you could possibly want. We stayed here mid week for 1 night in November 2013 with our toddler son on a ground floor unit. The 2brm apartment was spotless, everything appeared brand new. I liked that the decor was modern and the apartment had a luxurious feel about it. The couch was very comfortable, we had...

My family and I have just stayed here for 2 nights while travelling between Nelson and Akaroa. This was truly such a wonderful place to stay. The hosts Bryan and Cathy were very professional, helpful and friendly. The proximity to Hanmer Springs pools, cafés and restaurants is only a short walk away. The accommodation is very luxurious! The beds are...

We have done a lot of travelling all over the world, and this apartment is definitely one of the more comfortable that we have stayed in (although the bed is a bit soft!). We prefer to stay in boutique hotels as generally the service is better than bigger hotels. We were disappointed at the service offered at this hotel.
