This stay was truly the NZ hospitality experience that we were looking for on our recent trip to the South Island. We were fortunate enough to secure a room at short notice at Lake Tekapo Lodge for one night in early January. Upon arrival, Stephanie warmly welcomed us into her home like long lost relatives, showed us to our room... More

Hi Adele. Many thanks for your review - I could see you two were "foodies" at breakfast time. We just try to be ourselves and serve the best produce available so it is great to be recognised. Sory we could not accommodate you in a lake view room - next time? Cheers More

We stayed at Tekapo Lodge on Christmas Day and we couldn't have dreamt of a better Christmas dinner away from home. Stephanie and Alistair are the most wonderful hosts and cooked up a storm for us and the other 4 guests staying that night. We had the best time, they're both very warm, genuine and interesting people. They recently took... More

Elise it was so lovely to share Christmas with you and Dave (and of course our other guests). Thank you for your kind words. Have you told the story about the Nespresso being everywhere? Even in Tekapo? So relieved you two were not French Mafia!! Hope to see you back for the ski season. Cheers More

We could not have been happier with our stay, Stephanie and Alistair made us feel at home. Arrange for Stephanie to cook for you, much better than any... More

The room was spacious and very wel decorated (as was the entire lodge). It was a perfect mix of contemporary design and timeless pieces. It was cozy without being cluttered.... More

Ok, this is our number one stay - and we did a lot of hotels, lodges and B&B in South Island of New Zealand. Extremely nice and sincere owners (and we like Buster, the home dog). Amazing view (and township), warm welcome, very good breakfast, really nice room! Stayed for one night, and had a memorable stay, really. If you... More

I stayed with my partner at Lake Tekapo Lodge for one night and the only thing I can say is that I wish I could have stay longer. I knew the lodge before and the (amazing) new owners Stephanie & Alistair worked a lot to provide their guests with a real high standard accomodation, they totally refurbished the lodge and... More

My wife and I had a great 2 night stay. Accommodation is excellent and Stephanie and Alistair ( new owners ) were very friendly and helpful. Both are excellent chefs so the breakfasts were great and if you want an excellent and good value restaurant quality dinner take up their offer to dine in. We had some wonderfully prepared salmon...
