“High quality rooms & fantastic hosts”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

Although this place is a few minutes walk away from the main village, it's well worth staying here. The rooms are beautifully furnished to a very high standard and the place is spotless. We arrived very early due to bad weather and were made very welcome and allowed to check in. Another reviewer commented that the beds were two mattresses joined together but we found that better - no sag in the middle. In fact, it made us decide that when we renew our mattress we'll get the same.
The room included free wifi and it worked extremely well, unlike some of the places we have stayed in on this trip. We were also pleased that the complimentary shampoo etc., in the bathroom was "cruelty free" that is, not tested on animals. A small touch but a very nice one.
The price includes a full home cooked breakfast which was served at a time to suit us. It was delicious and they even managed to cater for my partner, who is Vegan.
It appears to be more expensive than some if the other places in Tekapo, but remember that it includes free high speed wifi (that actually works) and a home cooked breakfast, it's very good value and so much more stylish. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for this review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciate the detail provided for other guests in relation to the Twin/ Super-king beds offered. We do have 1 room with this configuration and many of our guests who are couples have found this bed extremely comfortable made up as a Super-king double. However if anyone does not wish to have this configuration they can enquire directly and we do have 1 piece King and Queen rooms available as well.
Thank you again for the review

Very warm welcome from our host. Joanne is all nice and friendly to introduce the room and the attractions nearby to us. She even helped us to book the restaurant for dinner that night.
The room is very modern and comfortable.
Will surely come back again in the future!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake have amazing view of the pool

Thanks so much for the review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We do hope that you will come back and stay with us in the future. Just to clarify though the rooms at the front have a great view of Lake Tekapo, there is no pool on the property.

Thanks Again

What a perfect gem. The lodge is situated just down the road from the village centre in a quiet area. Our fantastic, modern room had an amazing view of the Lake from the magnificent windows. All the small touches that add up to a comfortable stay were present. Joanne our host was very welcoming and made lots of suggestions of things to do, places to eat and activities in the area.
Breakfast was generous and good with homemade muesli and bread.
Snoopy the dog will keep you amused...beware if he offers you a pebble to throw, you will be occupied for some time!!!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms at the front with the view of the Lake

A wonderful accommodation located just down the road from the town centre was very quiet with a nice view out over the lake. The hosts were extremely friendly and the lodge was spotless and had plenty of space for the family.

Three Rivers Lodge was a real treat. The rooms are modern and comfy, and the views are spectacular--we brought dinner back to our room both nights of our stay so that we could take full advantage! Joanne and Dennis (and their adorable dog Snoopy) were lovely hosts and we really enjoyed talking to them at breakfast. They have done an excellent job adding small touches that make the rooms feel inviting and comfortable. The lodge itself is convenient to town and situated in an idea location to view the lake with the mountains in the background. I would highly recommend staying at Three Rivers and visiting beautiful Lake Tekapo!

We were so lucky in our choice of accommodation at Lake Tekapo. We knew we were in for some spectacular scenery with snow capped mountains and the lake a vivid blue but when travelling it is always hit and miss with accommodation - in this case Three Rivers Lodge was a big HIT with us and we were sorry we only booked in for the one night. The view from our room was spectacular to say the least and the greeting we received was very warm and friendly. Breakfast with our hosts the next morning in their lovely kitchen was just like having breakfast with close friends or family. Loved our stay here and would thoroughly recommend anyone looking for a great B&B then this is it.
