“Comfortable, hospitable, and a fantastic view!”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

Not really much to add! Friendly and hospitable, breakfasts were excellent, and Chris gave me lots of advice about where to go and what to see. I'll definitely go back there when I return to New Zealand.

The view from our room is simply breath taking. Lying on the comfortable king bed looking down the hill towards the turquoise water of lake tekapo with the high mountains in the background is perfect. The room itself is beautifully designed and decorated. Chris and Colin made sure we (a couple with 18 months baby) have a very comfortable stay and go out of their way to accomodate unusual request (thanks for that canon charger!).

Though our stay was short (1 night) we thoroughly enjoyed waking up to the most breathtaking sunset view through the bedroom windows, not to mention Chris' gracious hospitality.

The room and facilities themselves are new, modern and clean, with a comfy mattress and great sheets.

My only regret is not getting a chance to see Colin's art in the gallery.

We'll be staying there again if/when we come back to Lake Tekapo.

Stayed for 4 nights there in Jan 2012 and were totally satisfied. Hearty welcome, very good service with a professional touch to it. Breakfast was very good, we missed nothing. Hosts gave us lots of information about the place and walking / cycling tours around the lakes which were very useful and made our stay even better. Go there!

Our hosts were incredibly welcoming and helpful. The guest breakfast room has lovely views over the lake.

Our room was small but beautifully decorated and very comfortable.

The continental breakfast provided was amazing including home made yoghurt and freshly made bread.

The location is a little way out of the town but not a problem for us as we had a car.

Chris has got the balance just right. We were so glad to take her advise and walk up to St John's Ovbservatory. The lake was unbelievable from that vantage point and the walk/hike made it such a good reward. The bedroom and en-suite was spotless. Breakfast was wonderful, fresh fruit, cereals yoghurt, home made bread and quality preserves. The outlook from the table was something special and has imprinted itself on our minds.

We stayed for 2 nights at Glacier Rock B & B. Room was cosy, comfortable and clean. Chris was a hospitable host who had great knowledge of Lake Tekapo and its vinicity. Breakfast was rather good with home made bread, yoghurt and cereals and that is complimented with a spectacular view of the lake. In the night, you can comfortably see the twinking stars from the terrace which was designed with that in mind.
