We were a group of four (two couples) initially booked into a two bedroom apartment. We arrived, about 1/2 hr to 15mins early for the 2pm check in and were greeted by a friendly receptionist. The power was off in town so our initial room was not yet ready, but we were instantly upgraded to a ready 3 bedroom apartment. This was a great initial impression.
The apartment had good quality furnishings and was immaculately clean. It lived up to the pictures and did not disappoint.
The gas fire place in the downstairs lounge and the central heating in the upstairs bedrooms kept the winter chill at bay.
We knew in advance that these were self catering apartments and that reception was 9am to 5pm. So this was never an issue for us. As nothing was or went wrong we actually did not contact staff again until we checked out. We did not use any of the communal facilities as we had a full itinerary Was a great mix of cooking meals at "home" and eating out in Tekapo.
The location was perfect to explore Tekapo, Lake Pukaki, go fishing in Twizel or take a half day hike in Mt Cook National park.
Overall we thought the accommodation was excellent and good value for money.
