We stayed 3 nights and could not have been more comfortable or pleased. We rented unit 1 which has a commanding view of Lake Tekapo, king bed, fully contained. Zita and hubby were incredibly friendly, helpful, informative and gave us details on all things local. Stay here rather than anywhere else in Tekapo. It it literally off the road so...

Just out of the reach of the main "township", which is a 10 minute stroll away. The owners couldn't be more helpful or welcoming. Highly recommended, and we will be back here when we return to Tekapo!

Lake Tekapo is a beautiful little town, and The Chalet is a fantastic place to stay if you are coming through. Upon arrival, Zita immediately updated us on weather forecasts for the next couple of days, and even allowed us to choose from other rooms that were available. We ended up in Room 3, upon her recommendation and we were...

Stayed at The Chalet at Lake Tekapo....absolutely amazing view and the accommodation was excellent. From being welcomed by our host who was very knowledgeable about the area to the little touches in our unit. Would highly recommend a stay at The Chalet.

We highly recommend staying at The Chalet - it's worth it. We had a one-bedroom ground floor unit with kitchen facilities, a living area with table and sliding glass doors opening to a patio. The Chalet is extremely well-maintained, in perfect condition -- pure quality. The mountains and water views from our unit and the patio are breathtaking, the air...

Had a wonderful stay at the Chalet boutique. Had a gorgeous view of the lake, and the room was very spacious and clean. Great to have a kitchenette as well. The owner was very friendly and helpful in giving suggestions of what to do and where to eat, even digging up some Lego for my son to play with which...

My wife and I stayed overnight at this wonderful location for a trip from Christchurch to Dunedin by the scenic route. Walter and Zita were very helpful, providing plenty of recommendations for local activities, dinner and breakfast. The room we had was ideal with all required facilities including cooking and laundry if required. The room opened onto the garden which...

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....
