First of all, let's get one thing straight - a resort it ain't. The hotel is located in the middle of Tekapo, with easy access to the road, a gas station, a small (and expensive) supermarket and some eateries. We spent 2 nights here. We booked a "family upstairs" room and were assigned room number 3. The room is on...

The room had great views and was comfortable and warm on a cold night. Our room did not have a kitchenette. It was on the first floor which made taking our bags up the stairs and along the landing a bit of a haul. Check in and service was made easy and was very friendly.

We spent 2 nights at Scenic Resort and were treated with wonderful hospitality and a gorgeous view. We were impressed with the location: Tucked on the lake side of cafes, shops and restaurants strip. Very easy walk to dinner and being self contained we had breakfast in. Beds are comfy, room was neat and simple and the staff delightful and...

My partner and I stayed here for one night whilst travelling around the South Island. Upon check in we were greeted and provided with a map of the area, the motel is in close proximity to restaurants and the lake. We had a room upstairs with absolutely beautiful views of Lake Tekapo and surrounding mountains. The room was clean &...

Beautifully located in the heart of Lake Tekapo, and would have the loveliest views from the balconies. We traveled to Lake Tekapo during the peak of winter and needed a comfortable place to stay the night, which this place provided. The heaters worked perfectly, the rooms were neat and comfortable. The owner helped us carry our luggage to the rooms...

The location of the motel is in the heart of Lake Tekapo. It's easy to find the motel in Lake Tekapo. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly by the owners.

Six of us stayed one night here and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The penthouse had two bedrooms plus two sofa beds in the lounge area and it proved more than adequate for our group. There's not many dinner options in Lake Tekapo so we cooked in the apartment and found every appliance and utensil needed to put together a feast....
