My partner and I stopped off at Tekapo Springs to break a long drive and provide some relief for my injured back. On entering the pools we discovered that the temperatures were well below the advertised temperatures of 37 and 39 degrees. We persisted for awhile in the hope that it was a temporary dip in the temperature, but we... More

Great facilities with a friendly reception, good café and plenty for adults and kids to do. We loved the hot pools and our son loved the water slide and other activities.

Our two day pass and treatments were paid for as a Christmas present and whilst we had a lovely time (treatments particularly lovely) it was quite a challenge to get the reception to understand that it had been paid for and what we were booked in for. 15 minute discussions on both days!! They were very friendly about it but... More

We went to the pools at the end of one of our days. We have been a few time and knew what to expect. There are a variety of hot pools of various temperatures and slides and other attractions in other parts of the complex. Very popular, and I would imagine that it would be heaven on a cold winters...

Thank you for taking the time to review Tekapo Springs. It is unfortunate that you were under the impression that the complex was much larger - this is not something that we like to portray. There are images on the combos deals page on our website that gives a great birds-eye view of the complex. Its great to know that... More

We stopped on Tekapo Springs on a recent trip to Tekapo on some of the hottest summer days. We decided to hit the Trippo, a giant inflatable water-slide before starting the 8-hour drive back to Picton and it was so fun, we will definitely go back if we are in Tekapo again in summer! The Trippo is a really big,... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Tekapo Springs! We really agree that the Trippo is fun for all ages and a great way to cool down on the hot summer days.

I visited Lake Tekapo for a day trip with my partner and mother in-law (no option below for just family without children) and thought it would be nice to have a soak in the pools.

Tekapo springs is a great place to visit. We went there in May 2014 and really enjoyed it with the three pools. A good place to relax. They also have a waterslide which wasn't operating the day we visited, and also an ice skating rink which was good to watch other people using, as I'm not a skater. We stayed... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Tekapo Springs. We value your feedback and it is great that you were able to see the Ice Rink in full swing. The Trippo waterslide operates in the summer months when we are unable to operate the Ice Rink which is why it was not operating in May when you visited. We... More
