Though there were not many reviews at the time we booked the B&B, I am glad that I made the right choice! Ann and Tony are lovely host, room is spacious, clean and comfortable. View from the room on the other side of the town is nice. We enjoyed our stay here!

The house is 3 minutes driving to Lake Tekapo, so it is not far from the lake. I like it because it has very good view, with windows in different walls. We could see sunrise and sunset when we sit in bed or beside windows, very nice view. The house is a stand alone one, so it is very quiet,...

We thought at first this was rather expensive however it was only $20 more than a room (without breakfast) at the Godley Hotel which was a tip so it must just be that Lake Tepako is more expensive in general than other places. Our room had amazing panaramic views and Anne and Tony were very welcoming, making us feel right...

Everything was done well. The beds were comfortable, the views were stunning, the hosts helpful (but not too overbearing), the facilities were spotless, the house was warm. The highlight was the breakfast featuring the best Central Otago apricots. We were also surprised at how close the house was to Tekapo, the maps made it look farther away!

It's difficult to decide the most memorable part of a stay here - probably a tie for first place between the amazing views and the brilliant hospitality. The house is a ten minute walk from the Lake (uphill but easy) and the bedroom is huge with big windows on three sides giving fantastic views of the mountains. There's tea/coffee making...

Anne & Tony are great hosts. Lovely house, nice, warm & clean. We arrived at night so we weren't able to appreciate the view but we made up for it the next morning when we could view the hills & mountains etc. Breakfast was yummy; fruit compote, yogurts & cereals wit tea/ coffee & toast. Couldnt ask for more. If...

My wife and I and our 18mth old son stayed with Tony and Ann in late November. Just a short drive to the centre of town and the lake, we were greeted with the warmest welcome in their most lovely home. A most beautiful view of the mountains from our room was something special and your hosts will go out...

Great views in all directions from a beautiful house. Tony and Anne were very friendly and had a good level of knowledge about the area. They invited us for a drink after we arrived and made us feel thoroughly at home. The room was lovely and had the best views in the house. The property sits above the village and...
