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

Stayed in an upstair studio. It's very very small! The sitting room can only put a round table! Room was very cold even the heater was turned on! The view in the balcony was amazing. Just located in the village centre, very convenience. Staff was very helpful. Price is reasonable.

Great place right in front of the lake. Very clean and everything one needed for a short stay. Loved the spa bath! The bed was very comfortable and the heater kept the room lovely and warm on those cooler spring nights. Very friendly staff. Would definitely book there again.

Stayed in an upstairs studio for one night. This accommodation is popular so we were lucky to get the last room for the night. Our room had a fantastic view of the lake, and a balcony to enjoy the view. Furnishings were modern and functional, there's plenty of room, and is warm and well insulated. The bed and sofa bed...

Tidy and well presented rooms. We had the Executive room right at the end of the top floor. The views over the lake and up to Mt John were fabulous. Central to town. Everything is walking distance. Great value.

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

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.
