Location and view spectacular however panoramic Windows to view covered in children's fingerprints . The 2 hour daylight remaining before dusk to enjoy view was tainted phoning reception to request 2 separate buses be shifted so we could see the view we paid for. Spacious furnished interior had not one cushion to sit with. Tv monitor didn't work so we... More

Nice warm rooms. Great bathroom with lovely underfloor heating. Wi Fi was terrible however and crappy 14 inch 4:3 TV's are well below modern expectations. Great food and worth a look for an overnight stopover

The first room we were offered was incredibly small. We had to upgrade to the better room. Facilities and cleanliness were good, however 100MB limit on Internet is not complimentary wifi, especially from a high range accommodation

Great location and views, large living spaces however general maintenance and housekeeping (cleanliness) very poor. Average value for money. Would have rated excellent if they sorted the maintenance and cleaning issues.

We stayed in a lake view apartment which was nice but very much like a 10 year old Novotel. When we arrived at around 2.30pm I was told our room was not ready and was asked to perhaps go for a walk and come back in around 10 mins. This wasn't a great start. Fortunately while I was still filling... More

Not worth it - too many things wrong in our stay to justify the high price. At first it seemed amazing with space etc, but it soon showed faults with lack of kitchen utensils, no salt and pepper, no coffee machine nor even a plunger (we enquired and were told to drink the powdered coffee). heat pump blew cold, dryer...

Great hotel but a bit pricey for the quality of the room. Magnificent lake view from the room balcony. Good customer service. Breakfast can be better. Overall stay satified and would come and visit again.

We had a one night getaway to Tekapo and stayed at Peppers - such a great choice! Their mountain view suites are beautiful, and we felt relaxed our entire stay. We were on the bottom floor, and we could hear all the movements from the room/s above us. This wasn't a huge deal, but we definitely noticed it often. The... More

Villa is in need of repair and TLC. Cleaning staff seem to run the resort, in a negative way - delayed check in no towels etc. for the price you paid was a little disappointing! Front of house staff and food were amazing.
