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!
