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

Great place to stay and it was a 1 minuet drive into town. Comfortable beds, friendly owner and just a wonderful place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone who is going to be in that area. It is very close to Mt. John where you get a wonderful view of the city.

We were assigned the lodging below the main B&B. This was like having an entire home to ourselves. The rooms were comfortable and clean. There was a huge kitchen area and living area for our use as well although we didn't have a need of them for this trip. Jenny and Steve were very gracious, informative and down to earth.... More

Although we visited this BnB at the end of January, it was so good that I cannot let a review slip by. On arrival Jenny was very welcoming. Our room, including the en-suite was fitted out to a very high standard. The view was to die for and was a fabulous introduction to our month in NZ. Jenny and Steve... More

This is one of the very best BnB we have been to in NZ. While preparing this trip, I had selected it because of its location allowing great views on the Lake. We were not disappointed at all and, on top of that, there were some extra bonuses waiting for us. The self-contained room had a dressing room attached. Thus... More

Stayed in the room with a separate bathroom across the hall, which was OK for one night but we would not have wanted to do this for longer. Robes were supplied, and at least no one else was sharing the bathroom with us. The bathroom itself was really nice and modern. The room was a little small and cramped but... More

A gorgeous Bed n Breakfast with views to die for! Jenny and Steve were helpful from the moment we arrived. Spacious rooms with everything you could need. They supplied towels etc for the local hot springs and maps to get around Tekapo! Highly recommend!

The house is very large and beautiful and perfectly located with a great view on Tekapo. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. There is a very nice feel to the house that makes you feel welcome.

The house was beautiful and the room was beyond our expectation. There's only a small minus and that was that the we were given the room that has no attached bathroom. Luckily there were no others that were sharing it. But it is still rather inconvenient since we had to walk in and out of the room to get to... More
