Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We stayed at Tekapo Heights for 2 nights. The room we had was spacious, clean and well appointed. The bathroom would be one of the best we have had in a B&B; very clean and modern.
We had lovely views of the mountains from our room. We never had breakfast, but plunger coffee was available in our room and homemade cookies and chocolates in the fridge each day. And it was lovely having cuddles with the pets. Thank you for a lovely stay.

This would have to be the best B&B we have stayed in.
Large comfortable top rate rooms. Our room opened out onto a courtyard with table and chairs and STUNNING views.
Delicious full breakfast and the best hosts in the world, so helpful and great conversation while we sat at breakfast with this stunning view to look out at.

We have stayed in numerous B & B 's in half a dozen countries. Tekapo Heights comes so close to getting the 5 stars.. .modern, stylish, clean just misses out on the finer details. We would stay there again.

We stayed at the 'Heights' on the last stage of our journey back to Christchurch from Milford Sound and were treated to a great stay. Tucked away in Sam's Place Jenny and Steve have created a lovely haven. Our room was airy and complete with all that we would want during our stay including a large and well appointed shower room - the best shower of the whole trip! Originally we were going to leave early and not have breakfast but changed our minds and the small extra cost was worth every penny. Tasty food freshly cooked and presented in a lovely room overlooking the lake and mountains all accompanied with a great chance to chat. Thanks again for the hospitality.

Room Tip: It would appear that all the rooms had their advantages

We also thought we were going to an hotel but the friendly atmosphere and lovely rooms soon made us realise we had made a good choice. One room had the most amazing shower with a radio in it! Breakfast was really nice and our hosts were friendly and informative. We did have views of the lake and from the dining table magical views over the lake and the alps. Our rooms were spacious and well-appointed with wonderful comfy beds.

Room Tip: Ask for lake view

This was our first B&B stay on our N Zealand holiday and not sure what to expect. Have to say it was far superior to any UK B&B. The accommodation was great with a good sized bedroom with a fridge. The bathroom was spotless and all mod cons. View from window was out over the lake. The hosts were great and couldn't fault the cooked breakfast. Highly recommended

Very roomy, modern house situated two minutes above the centre of Tekapo with fine views of the lake below. Well-furnished with a comfortable bed and nice shower.

Quite hilly so not handy for 'town centre" (such as it is) but good view of lake.

Continental or cooked breakfast was offered - we chose Continental but were a little disappointed with the single toast and single coffee offered. Otherwise fine.
