“Great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

Good location just before the main township, a nice quiet road so perfect for relaxing. Great layout in room and really cool skylight above the bed for stargazing (can be closed if you like it dark)
We were in Crux which seems to be near the water pump (it was noisy when one of the other two units were running water..best to try and get Beta or Alpha (I think that was the name of the other two) Besides that cannot fault the place

Room Tip: One of the first two rooms would be quieter

We came to Lake tekapo for a friend's surprise birthday party also to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
Driving smooth from Christchurch for approximately 3 hours with beautiful scenic of MacKenzie country and the Southern Alps along the way.
After some catch ups with friends, we checked in to the hotel in afternoon.
This accommodation has got limited unit to stay and we're lucky to make reservation some months earlier noticing this is very popular resort.
The room is so clean facilitated by modern semi contemporary design interior. Awesome view from lounge room looking straight the Southern Alps in the distance and Lake Tekapo. Provided by skylight on the top of bedroom area thoroughly enjoying beautiful starry night before we sleep.
The kitchenware set are all in the good condition. Bathroom is tidy and the toilet seat and cistern works really well with the hydraulic system makes a good impression of how well maintained this accommodation.
Overall impression is very good and really enjoying our stay and if we visit this resort again, will definitely come back to this hotel again:)

This little boutique B and B, a few minutes out of town, has all the comforts of home with fantastic bedding and superb blockout curtains so that you can sleep in if the weather turns nasty. Looking out to the gorgeous lake is a plus and the stargazing window above the bed is a cute touch. Loved the high pressure shower and all the new mod fittings and fluffy towels. At around $200 NZD a night, you would expect the place to be wonderful and it is.....It has taken me over a year to write this review but it was a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: try and get view of lake but remember there is a road between the b and b and the lake, but very few...

Beautifully appointed with 3 separate suites available. Stylish and modern with great linen and furniture selected throughout. Owners are on site and a delight. Beautiful views over the lake.
The best bit is No Kids!

Can not fault this place... it's perfect!!!

Easy to find
Friendly welcome when we checked in, and the host was very helpful. Suggested great restuarants to eat and local attractions.

Room was better than what we excepted. Very clean and tidy. Well equipt kitchen. Like the little touches such as an ice scraper for the car windscreen and binoculars.
Underfloor heating in the bathroom was a treat, and the sky window was fantastic.

We will have to stay again when in Tekapo next.

We stayed here for one night in our annual trip to Lake Tekapo, only because Peppers was sold out the night we wanted to stay. We actually arrived on the wrong day! Staying the day after, but the owners were extremely friendly and helped us with other accommodation. On the night of our stay, we were floored by how modern and spacious the rooms were. Literally unimpeded views of the lake, skylight above the bed to view the stars from - if you're the romantic type, but it has a shutter - huge bathroom, kitchenette and lounge area with a big TV. We always stayed at Peppers on our stay in Lake Tekapo - but now we've found our new go-to accommodation. It was perfect.

Room Tip: We stayed in Crux, which is the very end room by the driveway. Super quiet so had the best sleep!

When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly reception. We were given maps for the area and given recommendations for the area. We were then given a tour of the room and how to use the facilities, which we found very useful. The rooms are very new and contain modern tv, showers etc. The sky roof is a fantastic addition to the room, the views of the lake are pristine in the afternoon, and binoculars are supplied in the room to further observe the beauty of the surrounding area. Despite the closeness of the rooms, they are very quiet, and you wouldn't be aware that other guests were staying as well. Free wifi is a bonus. Overall a fantastic place to stay in Lake Tekapo.
