Lake Tekapo is an amazing place to experience and The Holiday Park is very convenient with all clean amenities. Also very close to the Hot Springs and back to the Village. We visited during the end of Winter and were lucky enough to experience a dump of snow. A must stay.

I've reviewed the holiday park before, but this time Mum was traveling with us so we got an ensuite unit as well. The unit was very warm with a good shower. Comfy bed and plenty of room. The location was perfect - completely unobstructed view over the lake. We had the site right next to it for our motor home... More

We were checked into motel unit one. This is one of the two older units and decorated in an iconic historic fishing theme. As a trout fishing couple we loved it, but it may not be everyones taste. Pros: * An amazingly well decorated NZ fishing Bach theme; * Generally good quality well maintained basics (bed, kitchen & bathroom); *... More

Stayed in a 1 bedroom motel apartment for $145. Quite unimpressed compared with other places I've stayed over the last year in New Zealand in the same price range. Very dated and tired. Lumpy bed. Surfaces were clean, but it was the kind of place you don't feel comfortable walking around without your shoes.

Stayed in a studio cabin for 2 nights with a nice view of the lake. The cabin was freezing and it took awhile for the heater to do anything. The cabin was clean and the bed was comfortable. Good value for Tekapo.

Yep it was basic, an incredibly warm shed, is probably the best way to describe it. DO NOT be put off by this, it depends what type of accommodation you select! Based on the lake shores, be prepared to wake up to a breath taking view, I cannot say more than that.

We turned up in Lake Tekapo without having booked anywhere. The $150 for a self-contained chalet (with ensuite) seemed a bit steep, but it was warm and dry with great views so we were overall happy. The chalet had its own instantaneous gas hot water heater, so there was plenty of hot water for showers plus an electric wall heater... More

Stayed here in a camper van and like the title says the views are great. It is clear that the management are enjoying their location and lack of competition. The facilities were amongst the "most modest" we saw during our two week trip. In addition, the price was the highest we payed as well. The reality is that Lake Tekapo... More

… A nice terraced camping ground overlooking the lake, and within walking distance of the Ice Rink (Winter) and Hot Pools. Facilities suitable and clean. A coffee cart comes first thing in the morning for those who would like a caffeine fix!!

The cabin we stayed in was right on the lake front, the view was magnificent. Staff were friendly and helpful with local knowledge on where to eat, timings and cost of local activities. PROS: The cabin was warm, very clean and tidy. The double bed was comfortable. There was a spare single bed, a small table and chairs and little... More
