I booked the smallest room and was a bit concerned based on other reviews here. Yes the room is small and doesn't have a view but it was clean and bathroom was actually good sized with good toiletry, shower, heated floors, towel warmer and heat. Everything was in working order. If you want a bigger room, than pay up! I... More

At first it and there is no reason why it is number 1 there. We got the Lake view apartment on the second floor which is really great. Very spacious and clean apartment. Kitchen equipments are in very good condition, well maintained. We check in quite late around 9pm and it was already getting dark and cold. And when you... More

If you plan to come to Lake Tekapo, this is the place to stay! From what I could tell, every room in the place has a fantastic view of the impossibly blue water of Lake Tekapo with the snow capped (at least when we were there) mountains in the background. The last few reviewers prior to me all seem to... More

Lake Tekapo was recommended to us by a friend. So glad we came to visit but wish we could have stayed longer than one night! Booked a lake view room which although not located on the lake you could still see it quite well. Rooms are modern and very clean. Loved the large size bathrooms with heated floor. We booked...

Our hotel room for two nights was in one of the front blocks and had magic views across the lake to the mountains. Three flights of stairs with bags were worth it but may be a challenge for some. The weather was cool but the fresh air through slightly opened secure windows was welcome. Despite its proximity to the road... More

This was the most dissapointing of all the rooms we stayed in on our weeks driving holiday. We paid $114aud for the tiniest room I have ever seen. Paid for a "Delux'' hotel room but after returning home and now double checking the website it looks like Peppers put us in the standard Hotel Room. On contacting Peppers I was... More

This "villa" is rented as a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom and we were travelling with another couple. When we checked in, the lady at the reception told us that there were 2 separate key for the 2 bedrooms inside the apartment... Then we discovered that actually there is first a common entrance very tiny and then 2 doors, 1 given... More

I gave a rating of average only because good is not an option. We stayed in a hotel room and when we checked in were given the option to upgrade to a bigger room with a view for $50 per night. They told us to check out the room and come back if we wanted to change. The room was... More

Arrived on a busy Saturday afternoon, all looked fabulous, trendy decor, chocolate brownies, nice jigsaw at reception and a friendly receptionist. She asked if we wanted to upgrade to a superior room for $30 offering a view of the lake, more space, bath etc so we were sold. She also was very helpful on advising walks, sights etc. It was...

having checked out Tekapo a year earlier, we had decided to renew our marriage vows at the stunning Church of the Good Shepherd, and as such booked a room for the night at Peppers. When we arrived in Tekapo, ice and snow was shining on the hearby hills and all around the town. Little did we know that things were... More
