GWのテカポ滞在でしたが、朝晩の冷え込みは多少あるものの想像していたよりは寒くなく、長袖にウルトラライトダウンを着て風よけに薄手のマウンテンパーカーをはおれば充分でした(手袋とニットキャップを持参した方がよいかも)。教会は午後11時過ぎても観光客が次から次へと来るし、全員LEDライトを持っているので、撮影に行くには深夜がよいかと思います。 わたしたちはユニット1(寝室とキッチン、リビングのあるお部屋)に泊まりましたが、キッチンには調理器具はもちろん塩・胡椒や油やラップやキッチンペーパーまですべて揃っていました。クライストチャーチからのドライブ途中で食材とワインを買ってきたので、外食せずここでゆっくりできました。 チェックイン時、お宿を経営しているご夫妻に行きたい場所を伝えると、天気予報を見て、実に的確なアドバイスをくださいました。おかげであきらめていたマウントクックにも絶好の日和でトレッキングしにいくことができました。本当に親切にしていただいて感謝です。室内はとても清潔だし、オイルヒーターがあるので夜も暖かく過ごせます。ホスピタリティあふれる、快適な素晴らしい宿でした。 This quiet,a beautifully,appointed,comfortable hotel. It was very lucky for us to have staying in here.We were really enjoyed Tekapo.They are wonderful, friendly host who made us feel very welcome and were so helpful with suggestions of places to visit and what to see. Thank you very much for your kindness even though we cannot speak English.Highly recommend...

We spent one night at The Chalet as we drove from Christchurch to Queenstown with our daughter who is visiting college student. Zita sent a friendly email before we left home and she chose a room to accommodate the 3 of us. When we arrived, we received a warm and witty welcome from Walter. He provided a map of the...

We spent 2 nights in The Chalet at Lake Tekapo whilst on a driving holiday of the South Island of New Zealand. This was the best accommodation of our entire trip (and the others were good as well!) The Chalet is family owned and run and is right across the road from the Lake with unencumbered views across the Lake...

Stayed at the chalet for 2 nights in April with my mum. I would give a 10 stars! The chalet is just steps away from the lake, dog and church. The restaurant is just across which is 10 mins away! Excellent location! Peaceful and quiet. The chalet just feels like home. It is well designed and well equipped. Everything you...

The Chalet is a most wonderful place to stay in Lake Tekapo - a must-visit on a NZ road trip. Walter and Zita were kind and helpful and welcoming hosts. They take such pride in their accommodations and their town and it shows in everything they do. The rooms have everything you could need to relax and enjoy your time...

We stayed in the Henkel Hut, which is a ground floor and self contained chalet, with cooking facilities. The views were stunning , although a little chilly to sit out for anytime . An easy walk to the centre (for Restaurants) and the Church of the Good Shepherd .

We just spent two nights here and loved it. We were fortunate to get an upgrade to a 2 bedroom apartment. It was like having your own house. The apartment was very large and had everything you could want including a very complete kitchen and a very good TV package. As others have noted, the location and view are ideal....

We had a garden room so could not actually see the lake from the room but we could from the garden and it is situated right on the lake front road yet very quiet. Really well equipped with everything, clean and comfortable. Owners are really lovely and have lots of local knowledge.
