We arrived late in the afternoon after a long drive from Christchurch and had booked this B&B along the way. The room was exactly as we expected clean, comfortable, and spacious, we loved the en suite and the stand alone bath and the view in the morning was great. Breakfast in the dining room was an added bonus and the... More

We were booked for 2 nights in the Southern Cross room as luxury accommodation. This is by far the worst accommodation we have had out of 24 B&B’s in New Zealand. A chilly welcome from someone who did not introduce himself; a small room with no view, very little explanation of the layout of the house and unable to recommend... More

From all accommondations we have visited during our holidays in NZ, this B+B had the nicest room, a comfortable bed and a fantastic modern bathroom. Unfortunately we stayed here just for one night. The lake view from the breakfast room was a highlight. We got a fresh cooked full breakfast which was very tasty. The hosts were very friendly and... More

A beautifully appointed B&B. The room we had was a little small, but then we had a separate bathroom to die for. The chocolates and cookies on arrival, and each day of stay were a lovely touch. Breakfast was with the owners and was scrumptious. The view was very nice, you could come and go as you pleased and was... More

This place was just divine! For a bed and breakfast, this beautiful property exceeded our expectations. The room was secure, comfortable, fresh and inviting. The bathroom was modern, clean and I was sweetly surprised by the heated tiles & then radio in the shower. GREAT! We had a nice room that was overlooking the backyard across to the mountains. Stunning... More

Short one night stay at this very warm and welcoming B&B. Excellent, friendly hosts, clean, tidy and modern room with all amenities. Even some chocolate chip biscuits to go with your cup of tea. The added bonus of the radio in the shower for a bit of a sing along and not to mention the spectacular views. Would definitely recommend... More

This property is in a neighborhood on top of a hill with a distant view of Lake Tekapo. Stephan welcomed us warmly--along with the pups! The room was warm and inviting--very comfortable. We loved the great views of the night sky from our patio. Breakfast the next morning was very good….enjoyable stay!

We didn't want to go for the big resort in "downtown" Lake Tekapo, so we were happy to find this nice little B&B up the hill in the residential areas. It's not far to town and the hosts are very nice and helpful. The guestrooms are well furnished and you can walk directly into the gardens. Remember to draw the... More

Beautiful rooms, fabulous hospitality. The rooms were well furnished, roomy, cosy and very comfy. The bathroom was sizeable, clean and had heated towel racks. The hosts were very kind and when they saw us camping outside in the garden star gazing, provided us with binoculars and a constellation map. We were also provided with free Wifi! A little oddity would... More

Situated at the heart of the Southern hemisphere's largest 'dark sky' area, this BnB provides a friendly base in the stunning location of Lake Tekapo (pronounced 'tikapo'). Be advised our satnav did not recognise the address even though the house is a few years old now. Our room (Gemini) looked out over the garden and down the valley and (massive)... More
