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

We stayed 2 nights at tekapo Heights and really enjoyed it. We were given a room with a beautiful view, and the room was really comfortable. It had a nice feel and was equipped with various amenities. The house was also well situated, and the view from where we have breakfast at was just stunning. Breakfast was also delicious, and...

We have been to Lake Tekapo in April and lived in this hotel. The hotel is very quiet, clean and cozy and openers are very friendly. Location is very good also. We will be there next time. I will recommend this motel to my friends if they visit NZ

We stayed at Tekapo Heights for 2 nights. The room we had was spacious, clean and well appointed. The bathroom would be one of the best we have had in a B&B; very clean and modern. We had lovely views of the mountains from our room. We never had breakfast, but plunger coffee was available in our room and homemade... More

This would have to be the best B&B we have stayed in. Large comfortable top rate rooms. Our room opened out onto a courtyard with table and chairs and STUNNING views. Delicious full breakfast and the best hosts in the world, so helpful and great conversation while we sat at breakfast with this stunning view to look out at.

We have stayed in numerous B & B 's in half a dozen countries. Tekapo Heights comes so close to getting the 5 stars.. .modern, stylish, clean just misses out on the finer details. We would stay there again.
