Peter and Jill were lovely hosts and their warm welcome made up for the cold weather outside. Very comfortable room with excellent bathroom facilities and a delightful view through the picture window. An easy walk into the village on the lake. Great breakfast and conversation. Just what you want.

A great place to stopover between Queenstown and Christchurch. The cottage is very well equipped and the owners Gill & Pete very helpful. This property is ideal if you are looking for 2 or more bedrooms. Would definitely return.

We spent a delightful two nights in Tekapo at the Alpine Vista B&B. The hosts were courteous, the room was immaculate and the breakfast was delicious. We used Tekapo as a stepping off point for Mt. Cook National Park, and enjoyed it.

This was our first experience of B & B in New Zealand, and was everything we had hoped it would be. Jill and Peter were great hosts, giving us recommendations about walks, activities and eating places. Breakfasts were delicious and very sociable occasions. A bonus was a shared wine and cheese affair one evening! Their home is beautiful and everything... More
