My honey and I stayed three nights at Three Rivers Lodge in Lake Tekapo in the Tekapo River room because it had a bathtub. We had a king size bed that was comfy with the oversized bathroom with the tub. The room had high ceilings and a clear view of the lake and mountains. WiFi, off street parking, and SKY...

Purpose built modern lodge with 2 large sun filled bedrooms and all mod cons. Good bathroom and comfy bed though room a bit plain. Quiet location just outside main area of the town. Lake Tekapo itself is a brilliant turquoise which makes sitting outside the room at the small table a wonderful experience. Breakfasts were always freshly cooked and served...

Three rivers is simply superb. Joanne & Denis are most welcoming and friendly, with loads of local knowledge which gets the best out of your stay - from places to eat, when to go, whether to book, local walks, and even the weather forecast! The accommodation was amongst the best we stayed in in 4 weeks in NZ - pristine,...

We stayed for two nights in January and it was fantastic, lovely rooms and great hosts in Joanne and Denis. Lovely to sit outside in the sunshine with some wine and enjoy the fantastic views of the lake.

Located within walking distance of the village centre and with breathtaking views of Lake Tekapo and Mt John. Modern, clean and comfortable the thing that makes our stay stand out is the welcome afforded by Dennis and Joanne who open up their home to guests. Generous with their time it was clear that their priority is to make your stay...

The lodge was well located within walking distance of restaurants and the lake. It was a 2 bedroom lodge. Place was clean and beds were comfortable . Amenities were pretty basic. 2 bedrooms had to share a bath. The toilet seat was wobbly. The owners were helpful with tips and things to do around the area. The areas around Lake...
