Beautifully appointed accommodation - queen bed, separate lounge area (large screen tv in each), reasonable kitchenette, superb bathroom, huge patio window and stunning view of Lake Tekapo. Unique too, was the skylight above the bed for stargazing at night - we laid there and let the Southern Cross mesmerise us to sleep! Very well equipped and being new, everything seemed good quality. We were nearing the end of 5 weeks travelling in NZ and this was the best motel we found.

The village centre is about a couple of mins drive away, where there is limited shopping for provisions. There didn't seem to be any restaurants offering much class. If travelling from a larger town and you wish to self-cater, it might be better to do your shopping before setting out. However, whilst very nice, the kitchenette is limited - only a microwave and electric frying pan for cooking (no hob or oven).

We stayed at the Lakeview Tekapo for a short 2 night break from Christchurch. The accommodation was faultless, well appointed with fabulous views of Lake Tekapo and the surrounding mountains.

The unit was thoughtfully laid out with quality furnishings & appliances. Kitchen was well equipped. There were a few unexpected extras (mints, chocalate, ice cloth) that were a nice touch.

The hosts were very helpful without being intrusive. A thoroughly enjoyable stay which we hope to do again one day.

Room Tip: All rooms are exactly the same and have the same layout & view

Very new accommodation so furnishings and crockery was in very good order. Very comfortable bed. In quiet location so nice to sit out front and look across the lake to the mountains, but only a 2 min drive to centre of village. Only downside was that not much sound proofing between rooms so often heard people in two neighboring rooms talking or banging doors.

We stayed one night here en route between Queenstown and Christchurch. Lakeview Tekapo is located in a residential area and we did drive past a couple of times as we did not see the sign. But wow it is a hidden treasure the rooms have everything in them including a skylight with an electronic closer so you can see the stars.The bed is the most comfortable bed ever, they have feather and down mattress toppers a wonderful night's sleep. A wonderful place to stay the hosts have thought of everything to make your stay memorable.

We stayed here for one night as a stop over from Queenstown and Christchurch. The apartments are brand new and very well maintained and built to a high spec. the veiw from the front overlooks the lake and the mountains and is stunning. Above the bed is a skylight with a retractable blind so you can lye in bed and watch the stars! As there is very little light pollution the sky at night is amazing. Would reccommend as a stop over place. You need to drive into the town as it is situated right on the edge.Located very close to the church and the statue of a dog.
