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

Just spent a night in this motel and the only thing I can say is fantastic!!!! The view from our room of the lake and mountains was superb. It was reasonably priced and extremely clean. we have stayed in other places in Lake Tekapo before and were not impressed and Lake Tekapo Scenic Motels surpassed them by a long shot.... More

While traveling through NZ recently we stayed here at the Lake Takapo Scenic Resort. I had booked online before leaving Perth without really knowing much about this accommodation. It was lovely, clean, well appointed and ALL the kids travelling with us were pleased with the amenities here. There was more than enough beds, heating, towels etc, The staff were very... More

We stayed here for one night during our trip from Christchurch to Queenstown. We stayed in a studio unit upstairs and enjoyed every moment of it. The bed was comfortable, the room was spacious and clean. The hotel is located conveniently near shops and restaurants. We went for a walk around Lake Tekapo to take in the breathtaking views. I...

We stayed in a Studio Upstairs unit for one night. This motel has probably been around for quite a while but the room looked like it has been partially refurnished recently, which is great. The room and en suite bathroom are generally clean. I like that there are some amenities in the room like a microwave oven, an electric kettle,... More

Very friendly owner who allowed us to look at the rooms before making a confirmation. More privacy if you take the rooms upstairs. Family units do not have direct lake view. There is a little supermarket less than 80 m from here.

We chose a "Studio Upstairs" room at this hotel and it was fantastic. The room was quite large with stunning views of the lake and mountains. There's also a great view of the nearby park and gardens plus a nice view across to the Church of the Good Shepherd. Check-in was a breeze and the owners were extremely helpful. I'd... More

The location is really good, lake Tekapo is just beneath your eyes. From the balcony we could enjoy the lake view as well as the clean view of sky at night. Rooms are clean and warm. It's worthy a try.
