We had the pleasure to stay one night, our last in New Zealand in this lovely and homey place. The room was spotless and we really enjoyed the chance to say "hi" to their two sweet dogs and a friendly cat- they stayed outside, no worries! But their little faces came to the door now and then and waited for...

We spent our last night in New Zealand at Tekapo Heights and it didn't disappoint in any way, even after staying at several other great places over the previous couple of weeks. This is a lovely big modern house in a great position high over the town, with views down to the lake. We were in the Southern Cross room...

I booked this place based on reading reviews like these and was stoked to find it was exactly as described: nice and clean, peaceful, and great location! The view was a great surprise, and they have set up an outside lounge area that is perfect for enjoying it. The hosts are incredibly welcoming and have great knowledge of the area....

Couldn't ask for more...very comfortable with everything you might need, followed up with an excellent breakfast looking out of the window at a beautiful view. We were only passing through Tekapo but wished we could stay longer in this B&B as Steve and Jenny's home was very spacious and the large picture windows gave magnificent views of boththe night sky...

This Guest House is in an awesome location with a magniificent view. The hosts Steve and Jenny were lovely - welcoming and very helpful. We arrived in Lake Tekapo on a particularly hot day and our room had no fan, air-conditoner or cross ventilation through the house and so was quite uncomfortable. It was also really too small for a...

I stayed at this property for 2 nights in early nov this year. Best part about this place is the location, especially the room with lake tekapo view, it snowed while we were there which was magical, snow capped mountains all around you, the only thing lacking in this term was that the bathroom was not attached, though it was...

Like other reviewers we thought we had booked into a hotel and not a B&B so if you're someone that doesn't feel comfortable with staying in someones house this isn't the place for you. The hosts were nice people and made us feel welcome, we did think it was strange that the bathroom was not connected to the room, the...

Lovely room & the hosts were great.Cooked breakfast was very yummy. We thought we had booked into a hotel not a B&B so were a bit surprised when we arrived. Looking at reviews on a few websites it looks like quite a few people have made this mistake with Tekapo Heights.

A nice establishment with very gracious hosts. It is close to town but a climb back if you choose to walk. This can be a little unconfortably on a cold evening. The bedroom was good but a little tight for space. Bathroom was quite large and very warm with the heated floor. Free WiFi was a bonus.
