We had the pleasure of staying at Mantra Lake Tekapo on our recent NZ holiday. The apartment was spacious, clean and the service was very friendly. The front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. He could not help us enough, nothing was "too hard" for him. He was very friendly, kind and knew the area well. We would highly... More

I have been to Lake Tekapo 4 times in the space of 5 years and every stay has been a pleasure. Not only is it... More

We were amazed by the cabin we got for the low price (in winter)! It was very cozy with the two bedrooms upstairs and a great kitchen & living room arrangement downstairs. Bathroom with tub and shower seperately was also very enjoyable! Great experience!!
