Stayed in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath accommodation in March 2014. Well kept, clean and generously equipped accommodation. The attached drive-in garage was convenient should it be pouring with rain. Washing machine (detergent included) and dryer in the garage. Kitchen well equipped with dishwasher, microwave, fridge, oven and hob. Living room was comfortable with gas fireplace. Bedrooms were simple and... More

First time to New Zealand and I must say that the stop at Mantra Lake Tekapo was amazing. Office staff was extremely pleasant, accommodating and offer excellent suggestions for dinner and sights. The apartment was well appointed, comfortable and made the stay away very home like! A sort walk to the lake was a great plus. Highly recommended!

This was a great place to stay. It was in easy walking distance to the lake and restaurants etc. We had a two bedroom apartment and it was beautiful set out. The view was over the swimming pool and out to the mountains. We didn't have a view of the lake but that was ok. It was very quiet, especially... More

We were offered this by Trailfinders as an alternative to Peppers which was full. It is a small development of townhouses just outside the town. There are no services offered and reception is open (allegedly) between 9am and 5pm. Otherwise you contact Peppers (but the phones in the apartment do not accept outgoing calls -mmm). Reception was not open when... More

A perfect choice for those wanting self catering options. These apartments are well appointed; the beds are comfy and the furnishings tasteful. There is plenty of space inside and out and the lake is a 1 minute walk away. The service was friendly and helpful - good recommendations made re dinner. We didn't cook but a bottle opener would have... More

I was really surprised by the quality of the 2 bedroom apartment/villa in Lake Tekapo. Given that it's a very small town I was expecting them to have not really tried too hard but what you get for your money is superb. Two bathrooms and a toilet plus a really good living room, kitchen and back patio. It really was... More

A group of condominium units, just off the main highway. Easy walk through pleasant gardens to the lakeside and the Church of the Good Shepherd. Condos are modern and comfortable, with 3 bedrooms. The road is noisy and busy, so try for one at the back of the development. Reception is not manned after around 1800. There's a small pool... More

We flew from Sydney to Christchurch, then drove to Lake Tekapo. We were tired when we arrived and relieved to see a comfortable, clean bed. We felt this accommodation was good value and would highly recommend.
