I am writing from the reservation booking perspective. We booked the Lake Tekapo Village Motel and our reservation was on request. I panicked and booked another place to ensure an overnight in Lake Tekapo. The next day, we received a confirmation from LT Villate Motel. I went to cancel at the other place and they would not let us out... More

Best motel from our New Zealand trip. Lady at reception was really helpful, beautiful views of the lake and clean room with all the extras you need. 5/5 Only a few minutes walk to the foot bridge over to the church of the good Shepard and right near all the restaurants in town.

While we were in a ground floor unit, it certainly did not detract from an awesome view of the lake & surrounding snow covered mountains! We received a very warm welcome & were also given advice about local attractions, eateries etc. The room was spacious and the bathroom enormous! It even boasted a shower and a separate bath - not...

Best motel I stayed in my winter trip out of 3. A bit pricy, but with friendly staff and my room has great view to lake Tekapo. Location is very convenient with yummy Kohan restaurant nearby. If have Maori tv channels, that would be perfect.

Excellent room. Clean, spacious, ideal for a few nights. Second floor, with a balcony, which adds to the wonderful ever changing scene of Lake Tekapo and Mt John. Very kind and welcoming staff. Excellent parking outside.

We stayed there for a single night while travelling from Queenstown to Christchurch. This place is far away from the major cities and its very peaceful and serene. Our room had a wonderful view of Lake Tekapo. Also watch out for stars during the night time if the weather is clear. Its near to all the tourist attraction which Lake... More

The best location in town. The ground floor unit we had felt more like a luxury prefab rather than a motel room. Slightly creaky floors indicating it was not of concrete construction. The wifi data allowance was on the low side. As I work in the New Zealand telecommunication industry, unlimited internet data is virtually the same price as capped... More

Thank you for staying with us. We offer a complimentary data allocation to motel guests of 1Gb per person per day with additional available on request. We will, however, consider an unlimited allocation, although we are reluctant to risk overloading our network, and exposing it to dubious usage. More

The positives are the fabulous views and the cleanliness. The room was small and modern with nice furnishings. BUT the walls are thin and we could hear noise from both sides and above most of the time we were in. We were also disappointed with the lack of kitchen facilities. The room had a jug and microwave but the only... More

Thank you for staying with us, and taking the time to comment. We are pleased you enjoyed your views, but are concerned that you were disturbed. Our units are standard construction and well insulated, and I would ask that we are notified of any excessive noise at the time, so we can address this. Our studio units are described as... More

We have spent 2 days in Lake Tekapo and this was our hotel. Our room (upstairs studio) had a small balcony facing the lake. The owners are lovely and the wifi is outstanding. The room, bathroom and services are really good, much better than in similarly priced hotels. We would stay there again.

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...
