“Lake Tekapo Motel & Holiday Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Not sure if we would stay here again. We found staff at reception quite unhelpful, we booked into a Family Villa which we found clean and satisfactory but it was no where near the camp or lake front so was very disappointing for family as they children had nothing to do. No play area for the children or water to play in without walking about 8 min down a dusty road. Poor view also of the Lake if any. Washing machine facilities were also miles away. Dont think I would stop here again.

My partner and I had powered site facing the lake in Dec 2012. On arrival the receptionist did not make an effort to make us feel welcome, she didn't even bother to smile. Then we found someone parked on our designated site. A member of staff told them to move to the site they should have been in and the traveller swore loudly for ages making us feel uncomfortable. So not a great start. The toilets were filthy with Mosquitos all over the floor. You have to pay for the showers- we havnt done so at any other parks. We went to the hot pools in the morning which are located next door and had our shower after our swim. The view of the lake is amazing, ask for a powered site nearest the lake and reverse park in so you can sit in bed watching the sun rise.

Yes, the facilities are not the newest ones. but they are clean, they are plenty. and what is more important than this? the cabins are great too. and imagine a breakfast in the early morning sun just in the shores of the lake? awesome!
it was our second stay there and we will go again. the place is just too beautiful not to stay for a couple of nights..

The park is located next to the beautiful lakeside. The view of the lake is fantastic with snowy mountain at the back. But the ensuite cabin unit we stayed in End of November 2012, was not well maintained. Most of the items in the unit seemed to have problems - stove, lighting, water pipe, electric plug, heater - perhaps some of these item are already too old to repair and is time to refurnish. Complaint made but was told repair done many time but just cannot fix it well. The rental charged was not cheap and the owner should do something on it, if not then it is a wastage with the beautiful view on the park. Furthermore, we find funny to have an attached toilet outside the entrance, every time we have to open the entrance door before we can use the toilet. With the current situation, we cannot find any value on the price we paid.

My partner and I and a friend visiting from overseas stayed in one of the motel units last week. The view of the lake is wonderful and we enjoyed walking into town and back along a purpose built track.
The accommodation itself is basic but comfortable. The decor was dated but as we didn't spend a lot of time in the unit it wasn't a big issue.
The tariff of NZ190 for 3 people was reasonable for the area.

Room Tip: The motel units are away from the rest of the park so are probably a lot quieter than other cabins.

If you cannot get other accommodations facing the lake or find others way too expensive, just go for the motels. It has excellent unblock views and the price is under $200 for 2 pax. Interior is very basic though. A car would be preferred as the location is an easy 1km walk out to the centre/church.
