This little motel was hidden away and looked dated from the outside, however once inside the unit we were pleasantly surprised. Unit was clesn and had all that we required. Pleasant host snd the most fahtastic view of the lake. It is an easy walk into the village. Would happily stay again.

We paid $125 a night for a really comfy contained unit, with double bed and a single, satellite TV, small kitchenette, two reclining chairs and a small patio with amazing views of the lake and mountains. We dragged the chairs out onto the deck and indulged ourselves in the vista for hours. Sure, the bathroom was dated, the shower wasn't... More

My husband and I stayed here and the outside of the building was not that impressive but the town was busy and we needed a room. The rooms were spacious and clean and very practical. It is right across the road from Lake Tekapo so the views are amazing.

My husband and I stayed here for one night. As we were only passing through Tekapo we were after a budget pick. The units looked a bit disconcerting from the outside - kind of like transportables or older cabins from a caravan park - and the decor and fixtures are dated, but the room was very spacious, warm, and provided...

Had experience with both studios, which basically quite similar except the shower at studio 4 ran out of hot water faster than the other. (Not sure why). However, the studio unit does offer breathtaking views to the lake. It is spacious plus comfortable, and also located near to the Church of Good Shepard & the Dog statue. Kitchen comes with... More

We ended up at Lake Tekapo by accident due to a road closure at Haast Pass, so didn't have much time to look into accommodation. We checked out the Godley Hotel first - eek. Looked at two rooms, and both had a weird smell, and were really old and small. Was a bit lost then found Park Head. Although a... More

Lovely unit with 3bdrms, 2 bathrooms large lounge and spacious kitchen. The views are simply breathtaking as this motel is just over the road from the lake. Very central to Tekapo township, historic chapel, rock formation and is great for a family. Very relaxing and peaceful. Would stay again. Suzanne

Good location with fantastic view to the lake. We stayed in 2 bedrooms unit, the unit equiped with the basic, little kitchen, washing machine, small fridge, good heater. All these are secondary to us, what amaze us is the look out from room, fantastic view. Love it. Great location.
