Lake Tekapo is beautiful and Lake Tekapo Lodge does justice to it. The hosts are charming and really want to make your stay special. The bedroom was spotlessly clean, with wonderful views and extremely comfortable. To cap it all, the breakfasts are marvellous.

Many thanks Ogles. It was a delight to have you stay with us for two nights and we were sorry to say farewell. The Astro Cafe carrot cake recipe hunt is still "live" - will email it to you when Chrissy discloses the magic! Have a wonderful holiday in NZ. Best, Stephanie

We stayed in Lake Tekapo Lodge on a trip round the South Island of New Zealand. The accommodation is brilliant - lovely rooms, beautifully kept, so clean and modern. Breakfast was wonderful - just so good. The hostess will give you so many tips about how to spend your time in this area.

Room Tip: Any room - so well presented.

Amazing reception by the owner, Stephanie, who is a vivacious, bubbly lady who makes you feel at home straight away. Nice rooms and a very good breakfast. It's not cheap but when was quality ever cheap! One can walk into the village for dinner and Stephanie is very good at suggestions for things to do etc

Many thanks Bruce - it sounded like you both have had an interesting time in NZ staying at some of the most exclusive places so thank you for choosing our boutique bed and breakfast! Sorry I guessed you were an Australian! Could be a compliment!....Best Stephanie

Faultless. Fantastic welcome. Superb room, with fantastic views. Chris D note we didn't mind one bit sharing the view and terrace with the other guests. Are you for real? Fantastic bathroom. Helpful hints on eating out and our trip onwards. Breakfast was great too. How anyone could criticise Stephanie's hospitality beats me.
Wish we had had more time to spend here

Wow wow wow yourself Stephen! It was lovely to have you and Shirley here to stay if only for one night! You could see we welcome all our guests and truly care about our visitors and making the most of their time in NZ... Can't please all of the people all of the time but so happy you two were happy. Did you bungy?! Many thanks, Best, Stephanie

Without doubt this was our best hotel experience during our holiday in New Zealand. My only regret was that we could not stay longer. From the time my wife and I arrived until we departed, we were made truly welcome by Stephne and Alistair and nothing was too much trouble.
The accommodation was truly excellent with the most comfortable king size bed we have had on holiday anywhere! The bedroom was of comfortable size, elegantly decorated with patio doors opening onto a two seat patio with a lovely view over Lake Tekapo and surrounding mountains. The bathroom with a large walk in shower was excellent, light and the very functional. There was a large comfortable guest lounge with an interesting library, coffee and tea making facility and even a refrigerator stocked with complimentary soft drinks, beer an wine. Breakfast was excellent. Thank you Stephanie and Alistair for a lovely stay and also your expert knowledge and advice for our continuing holiday.

Room Tip: All three main bedrooms have lake views.

Well thank you Sue and John for your glowing review of your one night stay with us! It is so easy when we have gorgeous guests! And thank you for "testing" the new mattress topper - it obviously did the trick... Do hope you had a great meal in Christchurch.? My advice was not needed - you had already marked your dance card with the right places!
Do hope you come back to NZ - there is more to see! Remember to email me first...
Best, Stephanie
