We arrived on a busy weekend to find that they hadn't taken our booking for a powered site as just too many phone messages to clear apparently. That was fine they found us a site but we said no camper vans please as noisy doors opening and closing all night but unfortunately first night noisy camper van running their pump... More

Pretty average compared to a lot of holiday parks in the South Island toilets and showers were not clean (not thru any fault of the staff but thru the fact it is within the Chinese New Year period and a lot of visitors were either from overseas or backpackers) bbq's were always dirty (again no fault of the staff) but...

Location is very handy for the Hot Springs although a bit of a treck to the town centre. Beds are conformable enough in the cabins. BBQ's (free) & picnic tables had great position overlooking the lake - be quick if you want a seat though, it gets real busy. The gravel road/track outside the cabin seemed very loud - every...

We stayed in the motel room section with Outstanding views over lake Tekapo which were a bit overshadowed by very thin walls and noisy neighbors cooking odorous food late into the night. The rooms were clean enough but the bathroom needed attention with black mobile in the shower. Bed was clean and comfortable and a good selection of tv channels... More

We booked a private double room at the backpackers, with shared facilities - no problems...until we arrived to find that our private room was infact a cabin not even attached to a building, it was sitting on a trailer. (These cabins are rented in NZ for around $75 p.w) They charged us a rediculous amount of $85 for the night.... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night. The park has a great outlook over the lake and must be a major draw. It is just outside the township but still within walking distance and very close to the hot pools. We were in a rented camper and were given pitch No 27; which had a fantastic view out... More

This was our last night in our camper so we had to have the facilities to sort the van out before returning it to Christchurch. The only good thing about this site was the cat. The reception staff were rude - telling us to go outside and fill out a form in order to stay. It was expensive with showers... More

We stayed in one of the Kiwi Bach's and I must say we were impressed. Great views, great service, comfortable accommodation. Will definitely stay there again. Pack warm though, I have to say that. Even in November we were freezing cold at night.

Although the campground was crowded with little privacy, we enjoyed our stay at Lake Tekapo very much. Good facilities. Great hikes start from the campground to Mount John, and the hot spas ar very close. ps: nights can be cold, bring an extra blanket!

The location was perfect, walking distance to the little township and super close to the hot pools. Right on the lake front, view was slightly blocked by trees but that wasn't an issue at all. Non-powered tent sites were a very good size, we had two sites and managed to fit 4 pretty large tents plus cars on them with... More
