Stayed here for one night. Kind owners and very helpful. We stayed in one of the rooms upstairs. It felt very homy and warm. We needed to do some washing done and the owner told us we could wash and dry our clothes anytime just downstairs any time which I thought was awesome! Love this place.

This is an excellent up-market motel. The décor is of a very high quality with all the facilities required for a longer stay if required. We had an excellent view of the Lake and the mountains beyond. The motel owner/manager is very knowledgeable of the area and can direct you to all of the local visiting points. The unit we...

My family stayed at unit 5 with 2 bedrooms. The unit was amazing! The place was very clean and we had more than enough space for a family of 4. We loved the fireplace and most especially the view from our cottage! We did some stargazing and a much needed R and R after traveling for the past 2 weeks....

Henkel Hut is a private little cottage no more than 1 minute from Lake Tekapo, offering breath-taking views of the lake in the day, and awe-inspiring vistas of the sky at night. The hut itself is cosy and comfortable with self-catering facilities. Lake Tekapo is a dark sky reserve. What this means is that it is very quiet and has...

When we told the owners we were planning on photographing the night sky, we were immediately recommended "Henkel Hut", and it certainly lived up to its reputation as a cosy yet modern standalone batch perfect for a couple wanting to soak in nature. It feels like you're alone in the world, as there's space all around and above you and...

這家民宿實際上比他們的網站圖片漂亮許多,你必須得用郵件聯絡的方式和民宿主人溝通,要預訂記住要在好幾個月前預訂哦~~不然它們只有ABCD四間屋子, 一下就被訂完了。民宿主超級和善的,還帶我們去後院摘櫻桃李,很舒服又乾淨的一間民宿小木屋 The room is actually much nicer and more beautiful than their website! You have to write the mail to ask for more details. The host is super nice and always responses quickly on the mails. You may get pretty much travel information with details(not only the room but other car rental, what near by and where recommended to...

Just 2 minutes walk to the famous Shepard Church and 1 minute to lake shore, beautiful views from room window, clean and comfortable room with almost everything we need. Friendly host! One of the best accommodation choice we made during our 3-week long trip of South Island! Highly recommended!!

We were booked into the Henkel Hut for 2 nights and it did not disappoint. The hut has a big living room window facing the lake and the mountain range, with comfy sofas and bed. The kitchen was well equipped and the superb wife cooked dinner with it. Toilet is very clean and the bedroom has a king size with...

The Chalet Boutique Motel is a well-maintained lodge and our stay for the week has been memorable. While it's strongest selling point is their excellent location and unbeatable views of the lake and the night sky, what is more precious is the hospitality shown by the proprietors Walter and Zita. They were helpful from start to end, providing us with...

Beautiful cottage with warm and super helpful hosts Perfect location with a view of the lake and the star-studded sky Just a quick stroll to the church and town/restaurants In short, if you find yourself in Tekapo, don't stay anywhere else!
