The hotel is located next to the lake. Walking to the Church is about 10-15 mins only. There are some restaurants near by. The staff are excellent. No regret at all. For sure will be back to this hotel once again.

We stayed in an upstairs studio which had great views of the lake. The room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The motel is located on the lake, only a 10 minute walk to the Church of the Good Shepard, and convenient to all the shops and restaurants in town.

Our room was on the ground floor and had a bedroom with a double bed, another bedroom with a single bed and a TV, dining/kitchen area and a bathroom. The cooking amenities provided were very adequate and they provided a big dustbin which was very useful. The location was right in the middle of town and walking distance to everything,...

My husband, 4 kids and I stayed here in January for our 20th anniversary. We had eloped and were married in the Church of the Good Shepherd. We had stayed at this motel on the night of our wedding. This time round Wayne and Debbie put us up in 'The Penthouse' which was just incredible. We had been travelling around...

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting Lake Tekapo. It is without doubt the best located hotel/motel in town. It is situated within the village retail area and our ground floor room looked straight onto the lake. The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was relatively large with separate bath and shower. The hotel staff...

We stayed for one night! It was a pleasant stay, the room is clean toilet and shower smells fresh, reception is very friendly and accommodating. It is a small hotel so if your room is in the second floor you have to carry your luggage all the way up Overall a pleasant stay

We had the penthouse (4 older sisters) 1 huge double room, 1 twin room, and sofa beds in lounge as well as a roll away if required. Very spacious, extremely clean, full cooking facilities and a wonderful view. The stairs up to it we knew about but if you have breathing or walking issues be aware. Would highly recommend and...

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...

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...
