We had family from overseas and booked the penthouse apartment. WOW, we were blown away at the quality and amenities that the apartment had. All the appliances in the kitchen that you could ask for. Modern and spacious. Very friendly and helpful hosts which made up for the cloudy night that hid the stars from us. Apartment even has 2x...

nice and clean unit with a spa bath that was so relaxing, nice owner, easy parking. just what we needed for the night. tinted windows on the front sliding doors so we can still look outside to the lake and no one can see in! was a nice wee unit.

This was a 1 bedroom/queen apartment on the second floor with uninterrupted views over the lake and towards the Church of Good Shepherd. It was very clean and comfortable with all expected features. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom a bit small and the shower with decent pressure can make a mess but nothing to overly worry about. There is...

I stayed 1 night in the upstairs apartment with a friend after our origional reservation for the dorm went haywire. So that was a great surprise. It was very clean, kitchen had everything you could possibly need. Great shower. Comfortable beds and the best part was a great view of the lake. The owners were very kind and friendly. Perfect...

This was a great hotel. I'd recommend it to anyone staying in Lake Takepo. It's right on the lake and right in the village so you have unobstructed views and you can easily walk to any store or restaurant. The service is great and friendly. We got a 2 bedroom unit and I'd recommend asking for the one upstairs with...

We stayed here for 2 nights recently. It is really close to the lake however I think it is too expensive for this time of year (ie not snow season). We paid $210 per night for a "spa room". When I think of a spa I think of a big spa in the corner of the bathroom. This was just...

We stayed here whilst on an Alps to Ocean bike tour. The organisation for a largish tour group was very good with no waiting around for room allocation. The room we had was spacious enough, clean and with great views over the lake and the Church of the Good Shepherd. A minutes walk to cafe and restaurant. Lots to occupy...

As the receptionist notified, after checked out , I stored my bag in the BBH, and went outside for a short tour, back with a takeaway and planned to take a short break in the kitchen for five minutes, without any notification, the owner yelled at me : after checked out you can not stay ! Get out!! and threw...

We booked a studio upstairs room and the view was fantastic. The room was comfortable and very clean. The motel is a few minutes walk from supermarket, shops amd restaurants. The description of the room was accurate-there is no sink in the kitchen area. There is a washing up bowl in a cupboard that you can fill in the bathroom...
