We booked this for my BF's birthday as a break from our camper van. Not sure what the rack rate was but we got a good deal through an online agency. On arrival we were given the option to upgrade our room for a fee and they were quite happy for us to check out a couple of rooms before... More

Brilliant place to stay with great facilities. Rooms are wonderful and large with huge bathrooms with walk in showers. Restaurant in hotel was also amazing and certainly a fine dining option. Laundry facilties available - 2 wash machines and dryers - probably not enough for the number of rooms - I ended up doing my washing at 1am when it... More

This hotel is very good, I don't want to sounds like it wasn't good because it was and we were even upgraded to a studio room with a full kitchen etc. However as it was the most expensive hotel we stayed in in New Zealand I was expecting it to be the best and it just wasn't. The customer service... More

We did not plan on visiting Lake Tekapo during our trip, but when driving through, we realized we had to stay! Peppers Bluewater Resort was AMAZING! The rooms were so comfortable and the bathrooms were unlike anything I have ever seen! Great place and so relaxing.

Lake Tekapo on a fine day is beautiful and many of the rooms in this hotel must have great views of it (mine did not). The hotel consists of a number of buildings around a small artificial lake, with a separate building housing the reception, bar, and restaurant. My room was actually a suite on two floors: the ground floor... More

We will never forget that first glimpse of Lake Tekapo as we drove over a hill to see the bluest water we may ever have had the pleasure of seeing on our travels. Rock flour from the surrounding mountains rolls down into the lake to produce a phenomenon that will live in the memory forever. The town is tiny but the impact is incredible. Peppers... More

Very good location - overlooking the beautiful lake. We took the 2 bedroom villa which had the rooms on the ground floor and the living room + kitchen on the first floor. We stayed there for 3 nights and had a very pleasant and comfortable stay. The rooms were clean and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped allowing us to... More

We only stayed here one night. We had 2x 2 bedroom lakeview apartments near each other. One was not a true 2 bedroom apartment, but had another 'hotel room only' which shared a common outside door. The other 2 bedroom lakeview apartment had 2 rooms inside but there was another hotel style room next door through a separate door which... More

Just back from an awesome NZ vacation! In Lake Tekapo, we stayed for two nights in a one bedroom lake view villa at Peppers. The villa is quite luxurious and spacious with a bedroom on the ground floor and the kitchen and living room on the first floor, so its a duplex configuration. The kitchen was well stocked and you...
