We were at Peppers Bluewater Resort at Lake Tekapo and WE ARE SO SORRY WE STAYED ONLY ONE NIGHT!!!! (It was an organized tour planned by an agency, so we couldn´t change it). THE ROOMS ARE MARVELOUS. One should stay there at last three or four nigths!

Our room, by a little pond, had two stories. Downstairs has awesome: Kitchenette (with even a dish-washing machine) fully equipped, a living room and a terrace. Upstais, a marveluos bedroom and bath.

Great place!

Room Tip: Get a two sorie suite! They are just wonderful

Kia ora CarlosCordova_31,

Wow! Wonderful review thank you Carlos!
We are absolutely over-the-moon to hear that you had such a wonderful time here. Lake Tekapo is absolute jewel in the South Island, and it's not until people get here that they realise how wonderous it is. With that said, we would certainly enjoy the chance to host you here again in the future, and hopefully enjoy a longer stay.

Best wishes,

Andrew M Freak

This is a big complex with a lot of rooms. But they are very nicely arranged. It is a well run hotel/motel business in Tekapo. Few meters away from the shops and restaurants. Very tidy , up to date facilities and good parking. If there was a small issue it is the unavailability of free internet.Otherwise just great.

The resort is in an excellent position and the views are stunning.
Was a little bit disappointed when we checked in as we were travelling with another couple and they didn't put us in rooms next to each other (or even close together). The Resort wasn't that busy with guests so even though we asked to be moved closer together they said that they couldn't do it. So that was a little disappointing.
The position is excellent and within walking distance to pub, restaurants, etc.
Even with the little mix up with rooms we would stay there again.

Kia ora Hayley M,

Thank you so much! I'm really sorry about the situation with your rooms, and will endeavour to find out how that occurred. The different room types are spread out quite a bit, which may perhaps have had something to do with it. Regardless, we really appreciate your comments and would love to have you back again sometime.

Take care,

Andrew M Freak

The resort seems to be nice, in a walking distance to the shores of the lake. We were there just for an overnight Christmas night stay in our way from Queenstown to Christchurch.
I think this is a place suitable for a longer stay in order to relax and enjoy the scene.
Although we were upgrades to a two level villa with living room and kitchen downstairs and the bedroom upstairs.
The breakfast was quite good in variety and quality but the restaurant was overcrowded during breakfast due to the groups.
The service was excellent and the receptionist quite helpful as we have done a mistake and booked the same date for 2013 instead of 2012 but she made the arrangement for us.

Great spot at lake Tekapo and within walking distance to resteraunts for the keen walker. Has a lovely pond in the middle which you can overlook from the Hotels restraunt.

If you are lucky enough to be placed in a 2nd floor room, can can see the beautiful blue lake over the top of the hotel.

All in all, Great place to stay

Room Tip: try and get a 2nd story room if you can
