Friendly Manager to book us in, showed us to the 2nd Level Balcony Unit.. A bedroom/ lounge and dining room both with views over looking the lake and the snow covered hills. Clean and tidy would return tomorrow if had the time to do so.

Arrived after a day of riding our push bikes to find our rooms ready with very friendly staff. I had an upstairs room with the most amazing views over the lake. To wake up to this view was stunning. The rooms are a good size with nice bathroom. The property is very central to the hotel and the bakery next... More

Are you looking for a clean accommodation close to the lake as well as shops in Tekapo? Lake Tekapo Scenic Resort is a great place. I had stayed in another accommodations in Tekapo before and I can confirm that this one is much better compared to those ones. We had an Upstairs Family Unit. View lake from the balcony and... More

We stayed this hotel for 1 night. Good location and very kind and nice hosts. Of course, very nice and tidy room.Unfortunately, we could not see stars the day with lots of clouds. We enjoyed staying here and will stay here again.

Lake Tekapo itself is a VERY small, quaint town. There's not a lot to do there so I wouldn't recommend staying more than a day or so. The Scenic Resort is in a great location and you have amazing views of the lake. The room itself is very basic and a bit old but the heater works well and it's... More

We had originally booked a place in Twizel as our main agenda was to visit & hike in Mt Cook I had researched through trip advisor about Twizel & Mt cook for accommodation & as we are on a budget found Mt Cook too expensive but Twizel being the gateway town to Cook was a lot cheaper & more value...

We were a family of four that stayed at this hotel on Sunday 19th Oct and were impressed with the friendly service that we received upon arrival. Managers could not do any more for us even taking us to our unit door. Unit was very clean and tidy. Little pricy for a Sunday night but overall good location and service.... More

Stayed one night with husband and 14 month old son in a downstairs studio. Room not overly spacious but still sufficient, even with a toddler. The bathroom was a decent size. Very clean, comfortable, modern, warm and quiet even with neighbours, it suited our needs perfectly and felt it was great value. Check in and out was seamless by a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a downstairs studio and it had everything we wanted. The spa bath was a lovely treat, big enough for two and we had a lovely view of the lake and church. The location would be hard to beat, directly opposite the lake and close to all that the small village has to offer.... More
