We stayed here for one night in August. It has a fantastic view of Lake Tekapo and is in a good location. We had a powered site and we found it quite expensive - $46, which is more than what we paid anywhere else for less facilities. For the price, it was also very frustrating that you have to pay...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom motel, had a very good view of the lake and mountains. The rooms were comfortable and clean but they could do with better heaters as it was not warm enough for our liking. We got in kinda late but reception had things in order, our keys were placed at a designated location ready for... More

We paid for a motel to accommodate 2, however, we were given a bigger motel without extra charges. There was parking space for our car just beside the motel. Everything was very clean, the toilet, the dining, the kitchen and the room. Bathroom was spacious too. The view of Lake Tekapo could be seen from our motel. It was amazing... More

We were very keen to visit Lake Tekapo, Mount John & The church of the Good Shepherd. This campsite provides a good platform for each of these attractions. It's advisable to see the Good Shepherd before booking in as it would be a good walk from the site. In addition there is an ice rink; heated outdoor pools and coffee... More

I was a bit anxious about booking this place as I like my accommodation to be a bit fancier then average however loved this place. We stayed in a 2 bedroom motel unit up behind reception and it was great. The view from the little verandah we had was breathtaking and you were right on the lake basically. The rooms... More

Small and clean holiday park right next to the clear blue waters of lake Tekapo. We absolutely loved this beautiful place and stayed one night longer than planned. Waking up with this view was just incredible!

Ensuite Cabin No2: Staying here was a truly wonderful experience for our family. It exceeded our expectations. Firstly the cabin was modern with tasteful decor...and fully equipped with all sorts of cooking utensils. A lovely deck with seating came in handy to watch the sunset. Now the view...it doesn't get much better than this. What an amazing sight to wake... More

Stayed in one of the cabins by the lake, was a great view. Had to wash up after ourselves otherwise charges may have been applied, never come across this before when staying somewhere. Also if unit was left untidy charges would be applied also. Wifi was expensive to purchase too. Not a friendly welcome from staff either.

We stayed in the holiday apartment option. It was good value for money. Basic accommodation affordably priced and good for a family. The location has great views and as always Tekapo is such a beautiful place to visit.

We rented a lake front cabin our family of three. The Cabins are a good size and nice and warm. Once the sun goes down you will have some beautiful clear skies to view. This is the place to stay of you are coming to Tekapo
