There is absolutely nothing that can be faulted with this accommodation - GREAT and extremely helpful staff, cleanest facilities I've seen, STUNNING view, amazingly quiet and yet close enough to town to walk, just all round top notch. I stayed in Chalet #2 and it was brilliant. Would be perfect for groups, couples, families or solos. Can't recommend enough :)

Both my wife and I love this place. We lived in the seperate single house. it is just awasome. Fabulous lake ad snow mountain view from anywhere in the house. Ok, to be accurate, even in through the bedroom window you really cannot see the lake and mountain, but the scenery throughthe window is just as nice. I took pictures.... More

It was a blessing that the hotel we booked didn't have a vacancy, and we chanced upon this beautiful gem the day before we left for Lake Tekapo! We got the last room (couldn't remember now which unit it was), but the whole motel was so nicely run by the swiss family! *Thumbs up and hats off* Rooms were very... More

As we have done for all of this trip to NZ, we have not booked any accommodation until we arrived in the town where we wanted to stay. I would not recommend this to new travellers but if you are prepared to sleep in the car if you can't get any accommodation, you can unearth some true gems and the... More

The place was very clean and in excellent condition but our chalet (unit 6) was full of clowns and clown pictures. I hate clowns and find them really creepy so this was not ideal. As lots of people hate clowns, I thought this was a very strange decorating decision.

We stayed in chalet 2 for just one night. Our chalet was spotless and everything had been thought of including towels to take to the local hot pools. The decor was not to our taste but as said, it really is very clean, tidy and we had wonderful views of the lake and mountains. Wifi was free, plenty of milk... More

What a superb boutique hotel this is. The rooms are outstanding: clean, warm, well supplied with toiletries, and just a little bit different. Our host, Walter, was extremely helpful, telling us about Lake Tekapo, the best eateries, and recommended a trip to the Mount John Observatory. Gorgeous Girlfriend and I stayed for one night on on our way to Queenstown,... More

We planned to stay at Lake Tekapo just overnight just to break up the trip from Christchurch to Queenstown and we regret we didn't stay in this wonderful accommodation for 1 extra night. The hosts were just wonderfully friendly and informative. The room (we had lake view studio bedroom) was spacious and nicely decorated, not to mention the magnificent lake... More
