We stayed here for one night on our way to Queenstown from Christchurch. Stephanie and Alistair were the most amazing hosts for our first night in NZ.
We arrived an hour before sunset and were immediately advised by Stephanie to go to Mount John Observatory to view Tekapo at its best. We were literally blown away at the view. A few days later someone rated it as one if the best views in NZ.
The lodge is beautifully designed with all amenities in the common area. The room was extremely comfortable and the view from the balcony was just stunning. The room had a 'birds' theme which we thought was very thoughtful.
However what we loved the most was the hospitality. We were served the most delicious home cooked breakfast which we missed for the rest of our trip. Alistair was very kind to show us the way to the restaurants at night.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to visit Tekapo.
