Lakeview is situated in a newly developed part of Tekapo, about 15 minutes walk from the village centre. The apartment I had (Crux) is very nicely furnished, with a high standard of fittings, is very clean and tidy and with a good lake view (except for the sign!). The lady on reception was also welcoming and helpful. Less good are... More

We stayed for four nights and absolutely loved it. Quiet and away from the busyness. But close to everything: the shopping village, restaurants, the Church of the good shepherd... All in walking distance. Amazing views, comfortable, very clean, I loved the shower. The bed was so comfortable and warm. The stargazing window looked amazing (unfortunately it was cloudy so I...

A little hard to find as this is a small hotel - only a few rooms. But well worth staying here - the owners were friendly and helpful, the room was super clean, tidy and everything that we needed was there. Such an easy place to stay - a walk into town, easy to park, very quiet, big bed, nice... More

Absolutely great place! Attention to detail is very high. Very big apartment, all the bells and whistles and the view to lake tekapo is unparalleled!!! Tremendous! Only about 3 minutes drive to town centre, very nice and quiet. And awesome skylight just above bed for star gazing 😄

We had a three night stay over a long weekend and enjoyed every day. The view of the Lake & surrounding mountains with their changing moods gave us the relaxing weekend we were looking for - far away from the city, people & traffic. The motel facilities were just as described - modern and had a number of special touches... More

We have been staying here for several years now and have just returned from another fabulous weekend. The accommodation is purpose built consisting of 3 side by side units - all with amazing views across the lake. The rooms themselves are just immaculate and perfectly maintained - very tastefully decorated too. We have had holidays there throughout all seasons, so... More

If the cloud cover permits you can star gaze from your bed ( this window can be covered if you wish ).We had a most enjoyable stay.... More

We traveled around the South Island for two weeks and stayed two nights at Lakeview, Lake Tekapo. It is situated away from the main centre of Lake Tekapo, in a quiet area with Lake views. The accommodation was lovely and perfect for a couple. The rooms were light, modern and very clean. They are nicely decorated and the living area... More

Stopped here one night recently and would have left a positive review until this happened. We checked out of the hotel around 9:30am and at around 10:00am received a call accusing us (girlfriend and myself) of spilling water on the carpet (I walk around bare foot and wasn't aware of any such problem, so couldn't have been bad at all)....

These people are liars! We are not thieves! We did not contact them regarding spilt water – we contacted them regarding the flooded carpet at the entrance to the bathroom (all towels in room were sodden in an obvious attempt to try and minimise the damage). We contacted them and offered for them to return to our business to survey... More
