Our last B & B in NZ did not disappoint. Our room was lovely with luxurious ensuite. Very thoughtful touches cookies and chocs in the fridge. Good breakfast with spectacular views, both our hosts were welcoming and helpful. We wanted to do a helicopter trip of Mt Cooke Steve phoned for us to check availability - a trip not to... More

Everyone said the good things; I am going to only mention the bad: 1. Our hosts were not that friendly. On arrival Steve just took my reservation paper from my hand - no smiles or greetings like "how are you?" no name, no title, etc. No greetings to my travel partner at all. The same when I departed. 2. Steve... More

Very clean and friendly without being intrusive. What a great view over lake and mountains and to sit with that view at breakfast makes eating and talking almost an unnecessary intrusion except for the fact that the breakfast is great too! Only issues are that it is a bit further from restaurants than we thought and we could have done... More

My husband, son and I spent two wonderful nights at this beautiful B&B. Lovely, friendly hosts that were welcoming and comfortable to be with. Fantastic room, great ensuite, large bed that provided a great sleep along with the quiet surroundings. Stunning views of the lake while having a delicious breakfast including amazing home-made toast. Very close to town centre also.... More

Only a short walk to town centre. Jinny was a little reserved but pleasnat enough once she came out of her... More

Stayed for a couple of nights, booked after reading Tripadvisor reviews, we we were not disappointed. Large spacious rooms and enormous en-suite bathroom full of hi-tech gizmos. Tremendous views over the Azure Lake Tekapo. Ideal for the Church of the Good Shepherd and Mnt Cook. Excellent hosts. Super breakfasts. Away from the busy (by NZ Standards) main road so nice...

This is a beautiful B&B. Situated on a small hillside overlooking the lake & its magnificently-coloured water. It is modern & decorated very well. The owners are very friendly * the whole impression is of staying in a friend's house. The rooms are spacious & very well appointed with modern expensive-looking facilities. The owners are only too willing for you... More

We only stayed one night but would have liked to stay longer. The town seemed to have lots of personality. Steve and Jenny were very friendly and fun to be around. The breakfast was fantastic. They have a nice view of the lake and the pegasus room and bathroom were modern, very clean, and very comfortable. We loved all the... More
