owing to a major communication breakdown, I turned up here expecting to meet up with my daughter and her family and share a family unit - turns out they had changed their booking to another hotel but forgot to tell me... but until I found this out, the lovely couple running this motel went out of their way to try...

This motel was absolutely fantastic! The views are unreal and took our breath away, and we got to see them every time we looked out our window! Location is great, just a short walk to all the restaurants near by and the Lake is at your door step. The bed was really comfortable and the heater worked extremely well! The... More

The weather was freezing but our motel unit was surprisingly warm. This is probably the best located accommodation in Tekapo, being right in the shopping centre, and with fabulous views of mountains and the lake. The unit was modern and clean and had everything we needed.

This motel squeezes maximum dollars from extremely average facilities. Yes, the unit faces the lovely Lake Tekapo - although you're now looking out over land that is under development :( But our unit was small for three adult sized people and access was difficult. The whole places looks tired and dated. Service was friendly and efficient but it was clear... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Clean rooms and facillities. Would not stay again for 2 nights as not too much to do in the local area. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were smaller than would expect to suit 4 people

The location of the hotel is amazing. From our room we could see the lake and the mountains. The room was very nice, comfortable and spacious. It also has a microwave and a fridge, along with cups and dishes if you wish to eat something. A great place, which I'd definitely recommend!

It is just opposite to the lake and walking distance to the Shepard church . Totally in awe of the services they provide . Bed heaters , clean bathroom , all... More

Good location with room overlooking the lake. But room is very small with 1 queen and 1 sofa bed. In addition, table is too small for consumption of take away food. There is only a microwave oven in room. Overall very convenient as motel is right in the middle of restaurants and four square supermarket. Room is clean and bed... More
