Lake Tekapo is where most people stop for the night when they do the drive from Christchurch to Queenstown (it's pretty much in the middle). Make sure you stop here. There is not much to do in Tekapo but it really is beautiful. Peppers is a pretty new resort with all the mod cons. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and it was huge. The apartment was very well laid out with the living area and kitchen upstairs separate from the bedrooms downstairs. The room was very clean and I couldn't have asked for anything more. The view across Lake Tekapo from our balcony was incredible.
Make sure you try the pizza place (Pepe's?) and walk around the shore of the lake in the early morning.
