The minute we arrived we knew we would love to come back and stay for longer. The view from our deck was spectacular and hard to look away from. The room was spacious and clean and the large bathroom had a spa and shower which was a very pleasant surprise. The service was fantastic and we were made to feel... More

We planned a two night stay near the end of our two week tour of the South Island and it was the perfect place to relax. Great view of the lake and surroundings from our balcony. Having said that, the town center is quite crowded, so there is a lot of activity and noise from the pub on the side... More

Stayed here as part of a motorcycle group of 8. Couldn't fault the place for convenience, value for money, easy parking, great staff and fantastic views of the lake right on your doorstep. We stayed in the ground floor family unit that has queen size room and twin room.

We stayed here for one night whilst travelling around New Zealand but after arriving wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel was very clean, the views from our room were simply beautiful and the staff at reception were extremely helpful. They have an excellent knowledge of the area and recommended things for us to do/places to eat.

The views from the balcony were beautiful and our pictures looked like postcards. We enjoyed being next to the lake and able to go for spontaneous morning and evening walks around. I had a mild flu but my family was still able to have their meals and poke around the stores that were just around the corner. That was a... More

Lovely upstairs room overlooking the lake. Room was spotless with everything we needed. Both slept really well. Hosts were both really friendly and welcoming and made suggestions as to places to visit. Free limited wifi. View from observatory back to village was amazing! Only stayed one night but on our next trip would stay longer as it was so relaxing!

We stayed here one night in November on the upstairs floor overlooking the lake. The room was very comfy with a great bed and everything working inc Wi-Fi. The bathroom and bath was great. We had a balcony with large full size sliding doors but it was a bit chilly to sit outside. Great view of the lake. We ate... More

The visitor part of Tekapo is a short stretch of restaurants, gift shops and activities. Lake Tekapo Scenic resport is tucked away behind these, right in-front of the lake. Our room was on the balcony level and had one of the most amazing views of the lake with mountains in the background, it completely took our breath away. The room... More

We stayed for one night on the way from Christchurch and Queenstown. We had a large top floor room with a balcony and a lovely unobstructed view over the garden and lake. The facilities were comprehensive - although not new, we couldn't have asked for more. Tekapo is a lovely spot. The lupins were beautiful. We drove up to the... More
