We were in a room on the second floor looking directly onto the lake and it was simply breathtaking! The room was clean and modern and a real surprise for the small price we paid which was really a nice feeling. The staff members were amazing and only too happy to help, they gave us everything we needed to know... More

Probably the worst place I stayed in New Zealand, the communal area was too crowded not enough room for everyone, the lights went off when I was in the shower and there was a lot of damp in there, and it was incredibly noisy when I was trying to sleep. Shame because it's a great location, maybe splash out on... More

The balcony faces Lake Tekapo. Second floor offers a better view but you have to lug your bags up the stairs. You can borrow DVDs from the management office. The room was clean and reasonably spacious. The management was friendly and service was good. Overall, it was a good stay.

A little hard to find set down a secluded little lane but in a good spot, close to the lake. Very friendly & helpful proprietor. Comfortable rooms but the beds are a little hard - though this is a common complaint from me when it comes to motel stays. Very close to all of the local services/cafes etc.

Plain but clean room with a kitchenette and separate sleeping space for a child. Rooms were quiet despite open windows to enjoy the breeze. Free wifi but very limited data download capacity. Some shopping and a few restaurants in walking distance.

What a lovely family spot. The couple/family who own the hotel truly care and made us feel very welcome. The rooms were very nicely equipped (we stayed in room 5). Room set-up was great - separate space for the kids and adults. Such a nice touch to have DVDs on-hand - kids (and parents) definitely appreciated the chance to chill... More

The best location on the lake. Beautiful views and fantastic, helpful managers. Quiet and effective room heating in cold conditions along with blackout curtains made sleep quality fantastic, - the huge spa bath and verandah with a million dollar view to enjoy a wine were something to look forward to at the end of a busy day. Located literally among... More

The service provided at this property is first class. A glitch occurred with our booking and how management resolved it was exceptional. Lake Tekapo is a great spot for at least 2 nights: hike to Mt John is great with an awesome restaurant/cafe at the summit.
