We stayed in the small cabins which I loved!!! They are basic but so cute and the setting is just amazing. So quiet and peaceful. Waking up in the morning to the view was just lovely. The staff were really nice and the whole place just felt nice and relaxed. My only negative would be the showers were hot/cold but... More

I stayed in an ensuite cabin. As a tourist hub it was always going to be priced higher than similar accommodation elsewhere. For NZ$125/night I expected a little more. The cabin had a magnificent panoramic view of Lake Tekapo. However, as it has such a great view, other campers would walk past and see staright into the cabin/bed if the... More

We stayed in a motel room, which was quite new and comfortable, so I would probably rate it closer to 4 stars. It had a great view of the lake. But our family travelling with us were in a campervan and stayed in a powered site. We were disappointed with the distance between our room and their site and would... More

Maybe I ask too much but when I pay good money I expect comfort. The camp kitchen is really a health hazard and should be condemned, seriously this is worst we have ever seen. Oh Bring your own pillow for staters the ones supplied are so hard and cheap ... One good thing. The views of the lake were priceless

Tidy and clean facilities. Very disappointed in the price $180 for one adult and two kids plus we paid $50 for parking using no facilities for a bus . Adding to the issue of the motel and why it rated so low there was one flannel provided for three people, no sample shampoo and only a sample bar of soap.... More

This was our first night in our campervan and we found this park very clean with a fairly new shower block and good kitchen facilities. Very close to the springs and the snow tubing park. Beautiful views of the lake from our camper van.

Stayed here while in NZ for a hockey tournament. Our group was split over two different kinds of cabins; the two bedroom (five people) 'park motels' and ensuite cabins. The park motels are absolutely lovely. Still bright and new, and most importantly, very clean. Beds were comfortable - very subjective, yes, but no one complained about them. The bathroom is... More

This was the first holiday park we stayed at during our trip around the South Island. It was also our first time doing a holiday in a camper van so we were open to anything and everything that may occur. Cost for two adults to stay one night in a powered site was $40 plus $2 ea to use the... More

We stopped here on the way to Wanaka from Christchurch. Gorgeous campsite, lovely views over the lake and well placed at the start of a trail up Mt John. Free BBQs, $2 for 10 minute shower. Good facilities including wifi. Very clean and well organised.

We stayed in one of the motel suites. Nothing fancy, good value for price, kitchen was well equipped, but the best part is the view. Don't bother with a restaurant when you can heat up a can of soup and sit in front of the window (the table is there). Do yourself and your neighbors a favor and don't park... More
