We had flown into Christchurch from Singapore and were driving to Queenstown, due to our late arrival it seemed to make sense to stop somewhere midway and Lake Tekapo seemed just the spot.
Location: Right in the thick of things in Lake Tekapo…there isn’t really much there but you are walking distance to a couple of places to eat. However, the real bonus is the superb views in the morning of the lake outside the window. Magnificent!
Room: Rather basic, definitely motel standard with small television for late night news. Heated blanket for the winter was a nice touch. The basic theme ran through the bathroom as well. A couple of freebie snacks had been left for us also.
Service: Friendly enough, we didn’t have any real interaction with the staff as it was a brief overnight stop but they were always pleasant. We were recommended a little café next door which was able to fuel us up in the morning before our drive.
Summary: Does what it says on the tin at a fair price. Were glad we stopped overnight here so we could enjoy all the scenery to Queenstown in daylight.
