“Nice Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2010

Rosemary and Grant make you very welcome. Room spacous though had to go across landing to bathroom.No TV in bedroom.Very good Continental Brekafast.
Good place to stop to see Lake Tekapo and visit the Observatory to see the Night Sky.Unfortunetely overcast 1st night and Partly cloudy the 2nd night.Observatory expensive,reduced price by 10$NZ due this.We managed to see some star's etc. The Staff were very friendly and informative.Due to the above we were given a DVD Rom of
Mackenzie Splendour ,Night Sky. Played Golf at the highest course in New Zealand,very dry, fairways were poor. Good pizza restaurant.Note most restaurants close 9-00pm.

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.

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 !
