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.

These apartments are amazing. You couldn't want for more. We felt at home the moment we walked in the door. We chose this apartment complex becasue of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and they weren't wrong. Not only was the apartment just fabulous, but also the hosts were so accommodating and friendly. There were towels available to use at the...

This accommodation is really well set up. It's luxury and homely and the owners are lovely, friendly and helpful. This place is tucked away from the main road, not that Hanmer Springs gets much traffic, but for those who are light sleepers like myself, it was very quiet. One didn't even notice others staying in the upstairs or adjacent units....

“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.”
