Stayed there at several occasions. The rooms are clean, roomy, nicely furbished and offer a great view. Some nice restaurants nearby and all other relevant venues as well. Once you park the car you can do everything on foot. Highly recommended for a stopover or even a longer stay - there is plenty to do and see!

We stayed 2 nights. The owners are lovely & helpful. Stayed in downstairs spa unit & had a great view. Yes there were earthworks going on, but you could not hear them in the unit. We arrived late, but unit heater system was on & the room prepared for us. It was lovely & cosy, considering the weather was freezing.... More

Lovely upstairs unit with excellent view of the lake. Very quiet place and a most enjoyable one night stay. Being right in the centre of the little township everything was very handy. Very clean. We were part of a tour group with our own vehicles so the parking area was very tight because there was a full house.

I booked downstairs king bed room and the owner helped me to free upgrade to upstairs king bed room, which has fantastic Lake Tekapo view directly from the room balcony! The staff are very friendly to lead us to the room, explained all major in-room facilities patiently one by one to us before leaving. All facilities are well maintained. There's... More

This is in a perfect spot. I wish that we had come when there are no earthworks as they did spoil and otherwise incredible view from our family room. The owners are helpful and accommodating and the apartments clean and well kept. Toasty warm which is necessary as it is freezing here. I guess my only complaint would be the... More

The view was the clear highlight of the stay. The room was OK but a little tired and did not feel as spotlessly clean as most other motels we stayed in on our recent holiday in NZ. It is in a very convenient location. It rained overnight and the steps were slippery. Whilst there were warning signs about this, some... More

The hotel is located near the lake and you can have the beautiful view of the lake whenever you want. We were staying there for a night in January 2015. The hotel is clean and new with everything you need. The reception is very friendly and helpful. The price is reasonable. We have a wonderful time staying there.

It is easy to be disappointed in this establishment at first sight because it is at the back of the village centre and is close to the highway in the front and in the rear there is construction being carried out by the council. However once you ignore this, the stay was extremely pleasant. The owner was most helpful. We... More

The hotel has excellent location, which is walkable to lake tekapo. In addition, it is also a walking distance to grocery, restaurants and café. The Run 77 cafe was not to be missed.The staff at the hotel was helpful. You could also borrow DVDs to watch. We had 3 adults and 2 children and rented the penthouse. The kitchen equipped... More

We'd like to stay at a place where it's near the Intercity bus drop off point (we are traveling to Queenstown the following day) and has good view of Lake Tekapo. Lake Tekapo Scenic Resort meets those criteria. I was advised to book the Family Suite as it has the best view and the extra money was worth it.
