Stunning views from the breakfast room and shared balcony. We had the garden room which was very comfortable and clean with fresh milk for tea each day. Pleasant walk to town with some good restaurants. The house is lovely in itself and full of lots of art. Very friendly and helpful wonders. A very enjoyable stay.

This is an excellent b&b. You get stunning views over Lake Tekapo. Thre facilities are first class. Chris & Colin make you feel at home and provide plenty of advice on what and whete to visit.Breakfasts are delicious with home cooked bread, fruit from their garden, home made jams etc. A real home from home.

Lovely setting with great views over Lake Tekapo. Chris was very welcoming and made us very comfortable. Easy walking distance into town and various restaurants, but some of these may require prior booking to avoid dissapointment. Easy to 'star gaze' at night as very little street light glare. We sat out on our balcony and watched the night sky.

We recently stayed for one night. Price confirmed on booking (made direct through guesthouse website) was $210. Website rates stated range of $200-250 for “Lake View” room and $170-195 for “Garden View” room. On checking in, we were disappointed to be shown to the “garden view” room – a slight misnomer, as the main “view” was of a washing line... More

Chris apologised for the mistake made on our website. The booking form clearly indentifies the room guests are staying in and our website clearly states that the Whero room has a garden view. The window is not a slit window but 1.6 m square. Guest in the Whero room have direct use of the Breakfast Room which has a spectacular... More

We had booked a flight over Mount Cook in January so stayed at Glacier Rock Gallery for one night. The room and ensuite was a good size, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was good with homemade bread, jams and fresh fruit from the garden.

We stayed one night in November, and were also treated to glorious weather! The room here was comfortable, even the fold out bed, and the view from the terrace beautiful. The location on a quiet street above the town ensures a good nights sleep and having a separate entry is handy for you and other guests so that late night... More

Stayed one night on what unfortunately turned out to be a rainy day at Tepako. Essentially an ensuite room in a two-story house on a neighborhood hill above the small town. Accommodations were perfectly good -- friendly hosts, tasty breakfast, typical bed in a bit tight room.It is what it is. don't expect too much w/out the view. We were... More
