This place was just divine! For a bed and breakfast, this beautiful property exceeded our expectations. The room was secure, comfortable, fresh and inviting. The bathroom was modern, clean and I was sweetly surprised by the heated tiles & then radio in the shower. GREAT! We had a nice room that was overlooking the backyard across to the mountains. Stunning...

Short one night stay at this very warm and welcoming B&B. Excellent, friendly hosts, clean, tidy and modern room with all amenities. Even some chocolate chip biscuits to go with your cup of tea. The added bonus of the radio in the shower for a bit of a sing along and not to mention the spectacular views. Would definitely recommend...

This property is in a neighborhood on top of a hill with a distant view of Lake Tekapo. Stephan welcomed us warmly--along with the pups! The room was warm and inviting--very comfortable. We loved the great views of the night sky from our patio. Breakfast the next morning was very good….enjoyable stay!

We didn't want to go for the big resort in "downtown" Lake Tekapo, so we were happy to find this nice little B&B up the hill in the residential areas. It's not far to town and the hosts are very nice and helpful. The guestrooms are well furnished and you can walk directly into the gardens. Remember to draw the...

Beautiful rooms, fabulous hospitality. The rooms were well furnished, roomy, cosy and very comfy. The bathroom was sizeable, clean and had heated towel racks. The hosts were very kind and when they saw us camping outside in the garden star gazing, provided us with binoculars and a constellation map. We were also provided with free Wifi! A little oddity would...

Situated at the heart of the Southern hemisphere's largest 'dark sky' area, this BnB provides a friendly base in the stunning location of Lake Tekapo (pronounced 'tikapo'). Be advised our satnav did not recognise the address even though the house is a few years old now. Our room (Gemini) looked out over the garden and down the valley and (massive)...

Great place to stay and it was a 1 minuet drive into town. Comfortable beds, friendly owner and just a wonderful place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone who is going to be in that area. It is very close to Mt. John where you get a wonderful view of the city.

We were assigned the lodging below the main B&B. This was like having an entire home to ourselves. The rooms were comfortable and clean. There was a huge kitchen area and living area for our use as well although we didn't have a need of them for this trip. Jenny and Steve were very gracious, informative and down to earth....

Although we visited this BnB at the end of January, it was so good that I cannot let a review slip by. On arrival Jenny was very welcoming. Our room, including the en-suite was fitted out to a very high standard. The view was to die for and was a fabulous introduction to our month in NZ. Jenny and Steve...

This is one of the very best BnB we have been to in NZ. While preparing this trip, I had selected it because of its location allowing great views on the Lake. We were not disappointed at all and, on top of that, there were some extra bonuses waiting for us. The self-contained room had a dressing room attached. Thus...
