We stayed 2 nights in the Potting Shed and absolutely loved it. Really quaint little room with basic cooking facilities and a good electric heater. Wifi was included and worked well. The owner was really friendly and the cottages are a three minute walk to the lake and Church of the Good Shepherd. Definitely worth a stay!

I stayed in the larger studio by myself. It was very clean , I am the type of person that takes alcohol wipes to accommodation places to wipe down the remotes etc , whilst I still did it there ,I truly believe that they wipe everything down on every clean. I had one of the best nights sleep I have... More

We booked Rowan Cottage for one night and took our pet greyhound too. The cottage had everything we needed. It felt a bit like stepping back in time with the decor but we found it charming. The cottage was spotless, the beds had crisp white sheets and the shower was awesome! The free WiFi is an added bonus. There were... More

We stayed in Mina Cottage for one night. Our group was two adult couples (ourselves and visiting parents). The cottage was clean and spacious with a bathroom next to each bedroom. There was also a separate kitchen/dining area separating the two bedrooms with external access from both bedrooms. This made it a good option for two couples travelling together. Free... More

We booked one night at the Rowan cottage and upon checked in, we were surprised that we were upgraded to Mina cottage. The cottage was clean and spacious. It is located about 100 metres from the Church of the Good Shepherd. As it was so near, we took a stroll after dinner and breakfast to take some wonderful pictures of... More

We stayed at the Pottingshed for only one night and would have loved to stay for another night! Loved our cozy little cottage which was equipped with all the amenities such as heater, washroom & shower, a small kitchenette, a small sofa and a table. It was just nice for us and we loved the vibrant colors of the exterior.... More

During our 2 weeks holiday in New Zealand, Lake Tekapo Cottages is the best accommodation for everything, only 200 meters distance to Church of Good Shepherd, very friendly manager and good desk service, very clean bedrooms/kitchen/bathroom, and good value for money.

We spent a single night in the Potting Shed in November 2013. What a gorgeous, charming little building it is! For us, it was a perfect, homely little spot to spend our first night in New Zealand. We were hoping to try some of the authentic home made Thai food on our stay, but unfortunately the cook was unwell, but... More
