We were reluctant to leave this beautiful place! There is much to do in the immediate area and Its location is excellent for exploring the wider Mackenzie Basin. We woke each morning to see the sun rising over the snow clad mountains and went to sleep at night under the clearest night skies with the stars brignt and easliy identified.... More

Stayed on powered site. Good location, right by Lake Tekapo hot pools and spa and on waterfront. Town is a little walk away but not too far. Lots of good restaurants in the town. Park was clean and tidy. Showers cost $2 for ten minutes but they were hot and had great pressure. Kitchen and TV room a little run... More

Super views of the lake to wake up to and the amenities were clean. It's a little old but if you have a motorhome and just looking for a powered site for the evening this is a great place to stay. Bonus to wake up and find coffee van on the premises so could enjoy a great coffee!

Our family of five stayed in the backpacker hostel during April, in a six bed dorm, which was clean, warm and comfortable. BUT considering the hostel accommodates 60+ guests at any one time, (as it did the night we stayed) communal cooking, dining and lounge/TV facilities are severely lacking. Eg maximum number of mugs available at any one time -... More

The place is great for families who love outdoor activities. Great view of Lake Tekapo, especially in the evenings. Although we were there in early spring, it was already crowded, so I could only imagine when the season is in full swing. I thought the idea of using the "coins" to control the use of water in the showers were... More

We chose this as our first stay on leaving Chtistchurch on NZ tour. We were not disappointed, although our cabin location could have been better, and no loos was a trail at night. The location is great and actinides are nearby.

This holiday park is on the shore of Lake Tekapo. Swimming in the lake was lovely, though the shore is stony. The campsite is quite crowded (although not a cramped as some others). Facilities were under pressure when we were there so we abandoned our planned BBQ. The views of the lake are fabulous, especially those of the sunset on... More

Right on Lake Tekapo had a wonderful view of the Lake. But the facilities were old and well used. Did have unisex washrooms but I consider that completely inappropriate. Go with our heading, great views, lovely area but awful facilities.

What an amazing location.... Very beautiful back drop, and really close to the Hot Pools, which are fantastic and clean.... The toilets and facilities were clean and tidy. Play ground for kids was great. The only minor issue we had was the hill/steep edge, that our toddler kept trying to fall down. The camper backed right onto this.
