We spent one night here in a big room with a lake view, albeit behind another small cabin.The room was a bit tired, and I wish the bathroom had even a packet of shampoo (I always assume they will!), but the location was nice and quiet, about 10-15 minutes from the "main drag", and near the church and dog statue....

Typical Kiwi Motel ,with all facilities...& spotlessly clean Studio 2, the most magnificent view... Friendly helpful host. Easy walk to town centre. Off main road & very quiet. Get views of night sky on clear nights.

Six of us stayed in the Lakefront Cottage, a 3-bedroom house that is part of the motel. The house is spotless, spacious enough, well appointed and well heated. The beds are some of the most comfortable I had anywhere. Compared to other accommodation the house was good value, and the owner was very accommodating. The church and the dog memorial... More

We stayed in a front unit, no 2 which is a little dated but magnificent views, right on the lake front, spotlessly clean, so cosy warm, comfortable warm beds, heaps of space adequate cooking facilities, stroll to the old church and easy walk...

Booked this last minute when we decided to stay a night in Lake Tekapo to visit the Dark Sky Reserve. The location is excellent for the cost as compared to other hotels we looked up along the lake. The rooms are bare bones but clean, spacious, and warm. I would definitely recommend to others.

Have stayed many time before, the front units are old and could do with an update in some areas the newer units and the house are very good but the view from the front straight up Lake Tekapo is worth the stay, within easy walking to the town, the units are warm and comfortable and reasonably priced

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.
