We stayed one night at this comfortable property, it has a lot of funky style with baby blue pile carpet and lots of great art all around the place. It is set back from the lake with lovely views. We enjoyed having a glass of bubbles out on the patio and the bar and wine that is available to guests is a great touch. Stephanie and Alistair were very accommodating and we had a delicious breakfast in the grand dining room with other guests and fantastic views over Lake Tekapo. We were there on the way to Wanaka for our wedding. We are big into our wine just like the hosts and my husband and I had mentioned the fact that we were feeling a bit "pino'd out" from having so much pinot noir over the years. When we left Stephanie and Alistair gave us a beautiful bottle of Ostler pinot noir from Waitaki as a pre-weding gift. This was such a thoughtful and unexpected thing to do. And the wine was delicious and made us change our mind about being over pinot noir (as they probably knew it would!)
An excellent stay and would certainly stay again.

Many thanks Kathryn. It was wonderful to be part of your celebrations even if vicariously!
Relieved to tempt you back to pinot noir with the fantastic Ostler... hope to see you again one day travelling back to Wanaka? Best, Stephanie

Our welcome at Tekapo Lodge was so sincere and so warm that we immediately felt at home. The accommodations are superb. A beautifully appointed King size bedroom with a gorgeous view of the lake. The room has French patio doors walking out onto a small covered veranda where we enjoyed the last few, warm, sun rays of an early winter's afternoon. Gorgeous!
The guests have access to a large cozy lounge area well stocked with a Nespresso machine, a variety of tea paired with chocolates and fruit. My husband was especially impressed with the added bit of class in the form of wine, Gin, Beer even Scotch! Alastair, your breakfasts are amazing and Stephanie we thoroughly enjoyed your entertaining and informative stories about NZ.
It's an amazing, beautiful country!!
Fingers crossed, we'll be back ...

We were looked after well in a very nice room and enjoyed our short stay at lake tekapo lodge. The highlight was definitely the lovely breakfast cooked by Alisdair. It is a B And B so you do share your table with other guests.

Hi Nick. Many thanks for your review and pleased you enjoyed your stay. The service we offer is an intimate hosted bed and breakfast with six adult guests only. Breakfast is a communal affair. We do offer a guest lounge with self service complimentary drinks and often guests converse and make new friends - that is if they have not already met each other at other similar accommodation - NZ is a village! Hope to see you again one day. Best, Stephanie

Just had amazing stay with Stephanie & Alistair.
Luxurious rooms, comfort plus. Was delighted with balcony off room that had sun loungers and was a neat place to relax and absorb fantastic view of lake & mountains. Village was a short walk away & catered for tourist shopping.
Breakfast was scrumptious. Evening meal was additional but well worth the extra - superb presentation, delicious flavours. Excellent selection of wines.
A well appointed lounge excellent for relaxing after an exhilarating day and provided liquid refreshments both alcohol and non alcohol which was a really neat touch.
Definitely stay again and recommend to other travellers and friends.
