We stayed here for 1 night - arrived late after driving from Christchurch and continued on the next morning to Queenstown. The couple who own the place were incredibly warm and welcoming despite our late arrival, full of advice about the town. The room was super cozy and warm, despite the frigid temperatures outside and the floor to ceiling glass.... More

Stayed one night - location is great and views from room absolutely stunning. Host was very friendly and made great dinner recommendation (Thai). Room was spotlessly clean. Only criticism was the lack of privacy between rooms - thin walls.

My wife and I were driving from Christchurch down to Queenstown and I used tripadvisor to find a good place to stay as a halfway point. Thank you to all the reviewers, they were spot on. Great location, nice and clean, comfortable beds, nice hot water, all the things I look for. Joanne was a great host and put out... More

Well, can we add our glowing recommendation? Stayed here for two nights in July, and it couldn't have been better. The rooms have million dollar views over the lake (we came back to Tekapo as we both believe it is the most beautiful place in NZ, and we have seen everything!), and the room itself was modern, really comfortable, had...

Our room was really clean and had an amazing view over the lake. We loved all the recommendations we were given, and especially loved the hike and then the hot springs. A great overnight stay that we would highly recommend. Fab breakfast, and it was great to sit with other guests and hear their stories.

A superb room with a view to the Lake to die for. When you add our good fortune of perfect blue skies and sunshine you can see why this place has such wonderful memories. Add to this the wonderful food and hospitality of our hosts Joanne and David you can see why this is one b & b we would... More

Room with a view of the Lake, which must be one of the prettiest in NZ. Clean, modern and the breakfast was superb. Very welcoming couple - we were even given 2 NZ ales as a parting gift, very generous couple who make your stay very comfortable
