“Faultless in Every Way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2006

This was THE best place we stayed on our 3 week tour of the south island. The staff were really friendly, the rooms spacious and immaculate. The whole place has that certain something both in the way that it's been designed and the way that it feels - the thought that has gone into everything is evident.

Breakfast was complimentary and the food was great. We were offered a complimentary drink in the lounge during the early evening but sadly were unable to take advantage

We have just come back from a trip which took in 13 hotels in 5 countries, and the Te Weheka was our favorite. The staff were so friendly, there was a complimentary glass of wine in the lounge before dinner, and the food was top class. The decor and furnishings in the public rooms was exceptional and the bedroom and bathroom were the height of luxury. There was an enormous glass shower cubicle which was more than big enough for two! We were only sorry we could not stay longer. If you are visiting the Franz Josef glacier I would recommend staying here and driving the relatively short distance to Franz Josef as you will not get a better hotel than this.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2003

We had planned to do a heli-hike on the glacier, but the one day we were there, the helicopters were grounded due to fog. We stayed at the Weheka Inn and it was an outstanding accomodation. Very comfortable and well appointed. The friendly owners gave us a tour of the facilities as soon as we arrived, and the breakfast was excellent. They even mailed a ring I left behind to our next destination. We wish we had planned to stay an extra day.
