We only stayed one night but this place is a gem. Wonderful scenery from our balcony, room was spotless and warm & our hosts Wayne & Debbie were so friendly & could not have been more helpful. Great place for a relaxing few days

We arrived for a one night stay at the resort on 17 Aug and were greeted with beautiful sunshine and a lovely host. Our upstairs family unit was clean, cosy and blessed with uninterrupted views of the Lake surrounded by snow capped mountains. The night sky with the church nearby was a photographers dream and the sunrise was breathtaking. All... More

We booked a trip to Tekapo quite a long time in advance but accommodation options were already surprisingly limited. This place had rooms available and the main choice was whether to have a downstairs spa bath unit or upstairs for the view. The way the weather worked out we were very glad to have chosen one of the upstairs rooms... More

My husband and I arrived into Christchurch at 530am (having already been awake since the morning previous and lack of sleep on the plane) and was making our way down to Queenstown by hired car. We choose to stop at Lake Tekapo to break up the drive on our first day and most importantly, catch up on some sleep! We... More

We visited Lake Tekapo during our NZ trip last November and stayed in this hotel for a night. The hotel was quite easy to locate and the reception was quite friendly. The rooms are very neat and tidy and had a good sized bathroom. There was no kitchen facilities but there was a microwave in the room. The best part... More

This hotel is one of the best in Lake Tekapo with its breathtaking views from the balcony of the room and also the friendly staff - Wyane who recommended good food and activities to keep us occupied during our stay.. Highly recommended.

We arrived late in the evening after a great drive from Queenstown to a friendly welcome at the reception. The rooms have been recently renovated and are fantastic inside. We only had a standard room but this included a good sized spa. The room is well done and has everything you need minus a kitchen. The location couldnt get better... More

Spent 1 night at the resort and it was very nice. Rooms clean and warm and reception staff very friendly. Would definitely stay again. Views from the room were excellent. Had a great dinner in Reflections Resturant.

We stayed here for just one night on way to Queenstown from Christchurch. Rooms are just ok. Not spacious at all. Didn't had food. But the lake view just behind the hotel ground is awesome. You can have segway ride in summers in the large hotel ground on backside. All in all ok. But i guess you can have better... More
