Our hosts were very friendly, welcoming and helpful in recommending the excellent Kohan restaurant before our night visit to the Mt John observatory. Our room had views over the Lake; it was very comfortable, the breakfast delicious and the... More

Having enjoyed our previous stay at Lake Tekapo Lodge so much, we recommended it to my parents, who joined us for our latest visit. It's safe to say that we didn't regret our recommendation - they loved it too! Since our last stay, the Lodge has got even better (there's now even more of the stunning artwork). It's impossible not... More

The absolute best accommodation during our five weeks in New Zealand. Large and beautiful rooms with a bathroom that went above and beyond everything else. Patio out onto Lake Tekapo with very nice views. The whole House was very tastefully decorated and there was a living room which was also very nice with free drinks in the fridge. The hosts... More

Lake Tekapo is beautiful and Lake Tekapo Lodge does justice to it. The hosts are charming and really want to make your stay special. The bedroom was spotlessly clean, with wonderful views and extremely comfortable. To cap it all, the breakfasts are marvellous.

Amazing reception by the owner, Stephanie, who is a vivacious, bubbly lady who makes you feel at home straight away. Nice rooms and a very good breakfast. It's not cheap but when was quality ever cheap! One can walk into the village for dinner and Stephanie is very good at suggestions for things to do etc
