We had a lake view room when we were there on end of November. It was very clean and quite. The view of Lake Tepkapo is stunning. There are restaurants and supermarket nearby. Walking distance to the attractions. Definitely will come back next time visit Lake Tekapo.

Great resort, helpful staff, rooms terrifically spacious, we had a spa. Gorgeous view, we could lie in bed and look at the Lake. Staff gave us great tips on the best places to view the lake and where to eat

The views from the window/balcony were stunning. The room itself was a lot smaller than expected but was comfortable enough. When you sit on the balcony with a nice glass of wine you can forget about any minor accommodation worries. Clean and tidy with really nice management. Would stay again now I know what to expect.

Initially we thought that this hotel was overpriced at $198 per night. However it exceeded our expectation and turned out to be the best place we stayed in our two weeks trip in South Island NZ. We stayed from 9th to 12 November 2015. The staffs were friendly, rooms were very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the upstairs family...

Spent a night here on our way to Queenstown. The room was a decent size and clean, and the bed was nice and firm. The view of Lake Tekapo was great! There was free wifi as well, although it was limited to 500MB per guest per night. The hotel was also right smack in the center of the village centre,...

For us the Tripadvisor reviews and the words "scenic" and "resort" in the name have really oversold this accommodation. It is located behind a strip of shops and restaurants, the entrance to the crammed off street parking is a narrow driveway between shops ( and it is also very hard to get into and out of the narrow car spaces),...

The studio room is a little cozy, but the bed faces the view of lake, which is beautiful. Hotel is within walking distances to many restaurants, very convenient. Front desk folks are very friendly and helpful, offering suggestions on activities and food. They have a large collection of DVD to borrow, as each room has DVD players. The shower is...

We stayed here for one night as part of a road trip. The motel is located right in the middle of Lake Tekapo with shops, restaurants and a pub right next door. The rooms were very quiet so this is not an issue. The room was clean and spacious and offered free wifi. The best thing about this place is...

The best thing about this property is the view of Lake Tekapo, the little church and the mountains - right from the room. We stayed in a 2 bed-spa unit, and we just never wanted to leave the living area. You can sit out, watch the lake change colour through the day, or watch the stars at night. The studios...
