The cottage was delightful, neat and absolutely spotless plus very well equipped with anything you may need in the kitchen. It was nice and warm when we arrived, with the heat pump set up - a thoughtful gesture.. Great location and views. Would definitely recommend and go there again.

Very modern facilities and comfortable accommodation! The lake and good shepherd are near . Very good star sky and view, we all like them. Fortunately , we saw the meteor! The mt John is not so far from the hotel! We will choose it if we come again!

We were two couples traveling together so this worked perfectly. Cost was reasonable since we split the total. Clean, comfortable, lots of room, and we enjoyed the washer/dryer to clean a few items since we had 5 more days ahead of us. Recommend highly.

My wife and I were only staying for one night in Lake Tekapo to visit the Mt John Observatory. The room was very clean and comfortable. Peter and Jill who run the B&B where charming and welcoming. Highly recommended.

We and our friends spent a night at the Alpine Vista Cottage. It is is quite spacious,, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a living room, dining area and fully equipped kitchen. Everything was spotlessly clean and comfortable. An excellent place to stay if you are more than two people.

A spacious, clean and comfortable cottage with excellent facilities, including an outdoor BBQ which my family and I enjoyed very much. The beds were comfortable and the living rooms was spacious. The toilets were very clean and had heated flooring as well. A great cottage to stay for a family of 5 to 6.

Pete, the host of the B&B was really nice and warm! Everything was beyond our expectation. We had a group of 5 so we booked the cottage which we enjoyed exclusively! I wish we had spent more nights there.
