Powered site overlooking the lake, absolutely gorgeous spot to watch sunset and sunrise over lake. Wooden picnic table per site nice touch when compared to other sites where it's usually first come first served. Kids play area x2 really good and very clean and decent toilet/shower facilities. Easy walk along lake into town. Only complaint is that kitchen a bit...

This place has the monopoly over the tourists at the moment & can charge what they like. "PARENTS BE WARNED large UNISEX TOILETS" dirty minded people can perve & prey & take pics of your young children Or adults. I have never come across this before most places have family showers which are great one shower & toilet in the...

Really!! We have a seperate male and female block only about 70m away from this block so you do have a choice and on arrival you are given a map and explained the different options. We have never had any incidents that would cause a comment like this and pride ourselves on keeping our guests safe and giving them a...

I echoed all the other reviews relating to this holiday park on TA - fantastic view and location indeed, right next to Lake Tekapo. However, the lack of amenities had me rate this park a 3 star instead of 4 and above. The park commands a gorgeous view of the lake. We enjoyed the serenity of the surrounding environment even...

Fantastic location next to the lake with stunning sunrise. Easy access to mt John walk. Clean and tidy facilities. Polite and helpful even though we were a little late. Clean and tidy despite being a busy/popular site

It has a beautiful setting by the lake with great views, the facilities are adequate and could do with an upgrade and there is a scandalous charge of $2 for a shower, this is after the expensive campground charge. But there are few alternatives so they have cornered the market. It also suffers from an authoraterian attitude problem with notices...

We paid $46 for a powered site for 2 in a campervan, with an additional $2 for internet and showers. As we were going to the Thermal Pools that day anyway, we appreciated the tip that the showers there are free for paying customers! Beautiful view of the lake from this site and nice, even, if unexciting, spots to park....

Lake Tekapo Motels & Holiday offers suite rooms with full kitchen facilities with clean towels and bedsheets. This motel is adjacent to the town centre with short walking distance to the only grocery market. Also within walking distance is the tiny Catholic Church built in the early 1930's constructed of stone and oakwood. Getting there we had to traverse across...

Great view but it needed a thorough clean and some maintenance. Bed was comfy but the bedding top cover needed a wash. It was small and an odd design having a passage in a 3 room set up which wasted space. Shower was small. Very large complex, very busy and the details get missed.

Stunning view from our RV site looking down onto Lake Tekapo. Facilities were clean and staff friendly. Loved being visited by a family of ducks. Stargazing in this area is truely outstanding. I would definitely stay here again.

We arrived mid day and got a brilliant pitch overlooking the lake. Good sized pitches for a 7m camper van. The site is spread along the end of the lake and I think most people could view the lake. Showers and toilets were clean and I did not think they were expensive for the time allowed. We decided to stay...
