Creel House
Ranked #4 of 10 Lake Tekapo B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 7, 2010

Creel House is a fairly modest B&B. Our room was clean and functional and breakfast was very good. It would have been better if the bed had been a little less saggy. It was fine for a one night stay but not longer (for us). The stairs to the bedrooms are rather narrow. Rosemary was very helpful ahead of our visit - responsive and she made an excellent restaurant recommendation.

Reviewed April 6, 2009

We had no reservations, and were lucky to find this pleasant and very comfortable Bed and Breakfast. The room was spacious. In addition to the king bed had a sofa, the bathroom was large and comfortable. The breakfast was continental, but perfect, with muffins recently baked by the owner, different breads and jams, excellent coffee and tea. The location was very quiet, and a 15 minute walk to the downtown and lake. The owner addressed us to the local Japanese restaurant, another great find and value at Lake Tekapo !
