My partner and I stayed here for one night whilst travelling around the South Island. Upon check in we were greeted and provided with a map of the area, the motel is in close proximity to restaurants and the lake. We had a room upstairs with absolutely beautiful views of Lake Tekapo and surrounding mountains. The room was clean &... More

Beautifully located in the heart of Lake Tekapo, and would have the loveliest views from the balconies. We traveled to Lake Tekapo during the peak of winter and needed a comfortable place to stay the night, which this place provided. The heaters worked perfectly, the rooms were neat and comfortable. The owner helped us carry our luggage to the rooms... More

The location of the motel is in the heart of Lake Tekapo. It's easy to find the motel in Lake Tekapo. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly by the owners. They gave us a map and recommended us to places of interest to visit and some of the popular restaurants to visit during our stay. We stayed at one of... More

Six of us stayed one night here and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The penthouse had two bedrooms plus two sofa beds in the lounge area and it proved more than adequate for our group. There's not many dinner options in Lake Tekapo so we cooked in the apartment and found every appliance and utensil needed to put together a feast.... More

The motel was warm, clean and very comfortable. The view of Lake Tekapo was amazing. We booked for one night but there was a record snowfall closing all roads so we had to stay two. The electricity went off but the motel managers put on hot drinks and hot breakfast for all guests. They then spent the rest of the... More

Staff were very helpful. Showed us to our room. Close to eating and attractions. We had an upstairs unit and stairs were a little tight. The resorted a bit hard to spot on arrival in the dark. Parking is tight.

Hotel was located at the lakeside and near to the shops around the area. My husband and I were disappointed that there is construction going on which blocks part of the lakeview. But, the view remains astonished though some part is blocked. Restaurants are in walking distance. Bathroom is huge. One of the better Motel we visited.

Excellent location and scenery. Exceptionally clean rooms and spacious bathroom. The staffs at the front doors are very helpful and enthusiastic in making recommendations for international tourists. Will definitely stay again if I have another chance to come back!

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!
