I couldn't recommend this place more! We (two young couples) spent one week traveling to some of the most beautiful towns of the south island and stayed in B&B for most nights of our trip and Lake Tekapo Lodge is no doubt the best! We considered ourselves the type of travelers that put comfort and quality before price when choosing... More

Stephanie & Alistair were very welcoming & friendly hosts, who are passionate about the Lake Tekapo region & their magnificent contemporary NZ artwork & the many heritage pieces you see adorning their Lodge. Our room, Tekapo, had amazing views of the mountains & lake, just the place to relax and enjoy the excellent complimentary Central Otago Pinot Noir Stephanie brought... More

Stephanie is a lovely, chatty, friendly host! So much great advise on what to do, see & where to eat! The Japanese restaurant recommended was A+! and only a 1 min walk!

We stayed just one night however loved the views of this place. Breakfast was delish too. The atmosphere is really great - relaxed and positive. My only issue is that the heater didn't work (and it was early winter, so fairly chilly at night - I wore thermals to bed). but the next night they moved us to a different... More

We spent only one night in this nice lodge and regret not staying there for longer. Stephanie is the best host I've met in any B&B. It's located at a small residential area that is not as noisy as those hotels at the main road. The decroation of the lodge is classic, you can see the owner has spend a... More

Our 5 day stay at Lake Tekapo Lodge was the highlight of our mid-winter holiday. Stephanie and Alistair are the most delightful and welcoming hosts. Their choice of art and furnishings and warm hospitality made it feel like home away from home. The breakfasts were superb, the rooms warm and comfortable, and the other guests were great company. Stephanie provided... More

We stayed here in late March and loved it. Stephanie and Alistair were fantastic hosts and my husband was very impressed with both the complimentary bottle of wine on the balcony but also with Stephanie's art collection! This is definitely a special lodge and well worth visiting. Enjoy!
