We (2 adults and 2 children aged 12 and 8) stayed for 2 nights in Chalet 2. This is exceptional accommodation and perhaps the best we have stayed in. Rooms are great, the hotel/motel is very well run with great service and suggestions readily available and the view is out of this world.

Gorgeous location, spacious rooms, thoughtful hosts, comfortable, convenient... this place is amazing. We have stayed at Peppers previously, but we'll always stay here now. It's located right on the lakefront, maybe 100m from the well known Church of the Good Shepherd. The rooms generally have seperate kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, and living areas, most with patios or verandahs. Ours was a... More

We stayed at this private lovely Henkel Hut for 2 nights (wish we could have made this place a permanent stay). The hut was spacious, cosy and offers a charming view of Lake Tekapo. The host, Zita is very friendly and made us feel welcome. Also, the Chalet is near the Church, restaurants and a mini supermarket - less than... More

We (2 adults, 1 infant) have spent here 3 wonderful days. The accommodation is absolutely spic and span, rooms are spacious and the owners are very helpful. The king sized bed is very comfortable as well as the couch in the living room. We found it one of the best accommodations during our NZ journey

We arrived early evening at the Chalet after having driven from Arthur's Pass and making lots of stops along the way to go hiking and see the sights. The sun was just beginning to set across the lake as we arrived. What an amazing view!!! Zita welcomed us to the Chalet and showed us our room. It was lovely. We... More

My husband and I stayed at the Henkel Hut for 2 nights. The views of Lake Tekapo from the Hut were amazing. The big green grass patch just in front of the Hut, followed by the vast expanse of sapphire blue water in Lake Tekapo and then the snow-capped mountains in the distance made for a truly idyllic experience. The... More

Swiss German Zita was a lovely host. We had a bottom apartment style room that looked right out on the lake. There was a glass sliding door that opened up to a Terrace that overlooks the lake. You can sit there at the table and chairs and enjoy the view! Also, there's a full kitchen and free laundry down the... More

It was such a treat to stay in this lovely chalet. Great hosts, lovely accommodation in unit 1 for three nights - very quiet, private, clean, and so warm and cosy. Spacious unit with everything we needed. It was the perfect place for us to unwind and relax - we loved sitting inside or outside enjoying the views of lake... More
