With stunning views across Lake Tekapo, this was a memorable place to stay. Lovely garden to relax in, and comfortable rooms with self catering hob and fridge.

The chalet is located ideally and is furnished with thought and care. The hosts, in our case Zita, are warm and caring and take their time to impress you with the local options in as much detail as you want. As it was our last night in New Zealand, we wanted to to wind down and the local spa was... More

My one-night stay at The Chalet was a fantastic experience. The location could not be better as the motel is right by the lake. When I arrived in the evening, there was a crowd of tourists but because it was by the lake, all it took was a very short walk later that night and early next morning to find... More

We sadly only stayed for one night in order to do the midnight Earth and Sky stargazing tour. The motel is right overlooking the lake - one of the most spectacular lakes until you go further south and see the next one, Lake Pukaki - even more spectacular .. ! Zita gave us a terrific welcome with lots of recommendations... More

We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms and the room was spacious and comfortable. We could also enjoy the lake view from one of the windows. We found it useful that we could use the laundry downstairs. The B&B is not in the center of the town, but it is very close and it is perfect to enjoy... More

We stayed one night in early March in room 1 which has a lovely view out towards the lake at the front. It was well kitted out and had everything we needed, and then some. Walter was very welcoming indeed and gave us all sorts of information about the local area, walks, places to visit and even alternative routes up... More

A very spacious room, interestingly decorated and well equipped with everything we needed. The garden is very pretty and there are a couple of seats dotted around plus a table and chairs outside the room. The hotel is right across the road from the Lake and a short walk from the Church of the Good Shepherd - far enough away... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in February and it was quite stunning. A first class motel with a magnificent view of Lake Tekapo and the surrounding mountains. The superb initial impression was matched by the warm welcome and excellent advice on local attractions and walks from Walter and Zita who are attentive and yet provide guests with their own...

The Chalet is a beautiful boutique motel. The owners have thought of absolutely everything in the rooms and the decor is gorgeous. Beautiful spot right on the lake.

We stayed in a two bedroom unit (#2) for two nights and enjoyed it very much. The appartment was very spacy and had a great view of Lake Tekapo. The garden in front of the appartment was beautiful and a great place to enjoy the spectacular sunsets. The kitchen was well equipped and we had free wireless. Walther and Zita... More
