Tekapo Heights
Ranked #3 of 10 Lake Tekapo B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 8, 2013

This is a beautiful little b&b and despite the slight dodgy weather the views of the mountains and lake were stunning! We left in the morning completely relaxed and refreshed.
BEWARE - the owner does have two small dogs.... watch out as they are completely adorable and you will want to take them home with you!

I truly enjoyed my 3 days stay with 3 cats and 2 dogs in this beautiful large house. Every room facing the big yard plus stunning mountain view, the room was very clean, neat and modern designed. Its only 10-15 min walking distance to town center where you can see lake Tekapo, Chapel and some real good restaurants. The host was very friendly, I got free ride and useful sightseeing advice during my 3 days stay. I strongly recommend this place to everyone visiting Tekapo, and I will come back again 

We stayed for two nights in this lovely B&B. It sits on a small hill, 10min walk from the centre of the village. If you're lucky, you will get a room with the lake view, but unfortunately all we saw from our window, was a bit of a mountain. On a plus side, our room was on the far end of the building and it had a separate entrance. The room itself was large with a built in wardrobe, TV, small fridge, microwave, basic cutlery and tea/coffee maker and a small heater. **Kitchen facilities are limited, so it's best to eat at one of the restaurants in the village (just make sure you book early cause they get very busy). ** The bathroom was also quite big with a very modern shower cubicle and a funky toilet. Basic toiletries were provided, but were not restocked during our stay.

Myself and my partner stayed here for 1 night in mid october. We loved our stay. The room was large, well furnished with a very comfy bed. We even got robes to wear! The hosts were friendly and helpful, providing us with towels so we could visit the tekapo hot pools, and cooking us a lovely homely hot breakfast in the morning. Bonues were the lovely view from our room, and also the very friendly dogs and cats that sat on our laps while we read outside on the porch eating the complimentary giant cookies they gave us. One of the cats even made a surprise visit to our room in the middle of the night because we had left our window open! Very funny. Even though it wasnt in the centre of town we didnt seem to mind this as it was only a 1min drive down to the restaurants, or about a 10min walk. We would definitely return!

Very friendly hosts, comfortable room and excellent breakfast!
The Guest House is located on the heights above Lake Tekapo township in a very quiet area and has great views of Lake Tekapo and the Southern Alps!

Friendly and warming hosts who were very prompt with service and gave some great suggestions about Lake Tekapo. The room was gorgeous and elegant. Stunning views looking over the lake and mountains. Yummy breakfast the next morning. Just minutes walk from the village centre with many choices of great food or dinner. Its the perfect little romantic night stay.

We stayed at Tekapo Heights after scouring Tripadviser and as usual we were not let down.
This property is set above the township of Tekapo and has a COMMANDING view of the lake and surrounding snow capped mountains. For a couple of people who have really done limited travel we were just blown away. Our room, which is under the same roof and part of the same building as our hosts was beautiful. The building is really well designed so you dont actually feel you are living with your hosts, simply a different wing. Clean well appointed with great views. The facilities contained in the bath room are a real feature.
The property is an easy five minute walk to the town centre where you will find many places to eat the drink.
Jenny and Steve are great host and have a real passion for what they do, all the way down to Steve making sure our iced up car windows were de iced prior to our departure and sending on a bag we had left behind. Cant recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: dont stay anywhere else
