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

Good location just before the main township, a nice quiet road so perfect for relaxing. Great layout in room and really cool skylight above the bed for stargazing (can be closed if you like it dark) We were in Crux which seems to be near the water pump (it was noisy when one of the other two units were running...

This little boutique B and B, a few minutes out of town, has all the comforts of home with fantastic bedding and superb blockout curtains so that you can sleep in if the weather turns nasty. Looking out to the gorgeous lake is a plus and the stargazing window above the bed is a cute touch. Loved the high pressure... More

Beautifully appointed with 3 separate suites available. Stylish and modern with great linen and furniture selected throughout. Owners are on site and a delight. Beautiful views over the lake. The best bit is No Kids!

Can not fault this place... it's perfect!!! Easy to find Friendly welcome when we checked in, and the host was very helpful. Suggested great restuarants to eat and local attractions. Room was better than what we excepted. Very clean and tidy. Well equipt kitchen. Like the little touches such as an ice scraper for the car windscreen and binoculars. Underfloor... More

We stayed here for one night in our annual trip to Lake Tekapo, only because Peppers was sold out the night we wanted to stay. We actually arrived on the wrong day! Staying the day after, but the owners were extremely friendly and helped us with other accommodation. On the night of our stay, we were floored by how modern... More

When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly reception. We were given maps for the area and given recommendations for the area. We were then given a tour of the room and how to use the facilities, which we found very useful. The rooms are very new and contain modern tv, showers etc. The sky roof is a... More

Spectacular views, great people would definatley come back .Stayed for two nights and were made very welcome. We were lucky it snowed. Nice sitting outside on the deck chairs with a wine. Stargazing opening was nice at nite looking at the stars.

This is the second time we’ve stayed at Lakeview Tekapo and my husband and I love the place! The room was immaculate with very modern facilities and it has the comfiest bed – if it wasn’t for the amazing scenery we would never have gotten out of bed. The motel is on the lake itself but it still has a... More
