We visited Tekapo Springs as a planned relaxation evening, following our journey down from Christchurch. It is only a short drive from the centre of Lake Tekapo, and is well signed from the main road.
There are many facilities there, but we only used the hot pools. The pools are on three tiered levels and gradually get hotter, the higher up you go.. It was lovely just to relax and watch the sun disappear behind the mountains that overlook Lake Tekapo. The setting is delightful...There are lockers and good changing facilities for all. Once we had dried off and got changed again, we decided to eat at the Tahr Bar & Cafe. It is set out very nicely like a ski lodge, and has a very alpine feel about it. The menu available was very impressive, and certainly way above “cafe” standards. The food was absolutely delicious, and my girlfriend was so impressed that she personally thanked the chef. He came out to talk to us, and we had a lovely chat with him, and the lady who was in charge of the cafe. They were lovely people and were genuinely happy to have helped to make our evening enjoyable. Had we been staying another night in Tekapo I am certain we would have eaten there again. Great experience, Thank you for a lovely evening!
