Stayed here for one night during our tour of NZ, stayed in the family spa room which is on the ground floor in corner at the back with a nice view of the lake.
Service was ok, no complaints and we checked straight in even though we were there before 3pm (it was about 2pm if I remember correctly.
The room was nice enough but was the least clean of all the places we stayed in NZ. The main issue I had was above the main entrance door was a large spider's web and actually the spider was still there inside. It wasn't huge or anything and wasn't causing any harm, but it looked like it has been there for quite a while, surely one of the cleaners should have spotted this?
The bedrooms were fine, the single beds weren't particularly comfortable but were good enough and the kitchenette had everything we needed to cook food for a young child.
In terms of value, I think the room was overpriced. I realise that lake tekapo is popular but we paid $195 for the night and it was the most expensive place we stayed in NZ, including a stay at the copthorne hotel in Wellington. We chose the hotel because of the good reviews here on tripadvisor but looking around the tekapo township there looked to be a lot of other options which are cheaper. I don't know about price, but the peppers resort looked much nicer from the outside.
Overall, not bad and certainly wouldn't tell anyone not to stay here, but would probably stay somewhere else if we ever went back to Tekapo.
