If you want to break your journey from Christchurch to Queenstown, Lake Tekapo is a good choice. We stayed at the stylish bed and breakfast Glacier Rock Gallery and were made very welcome by the owner, Chris. The room is very comfortable and guests can use the dining room to relax. The views from the house are lovely and, for...

We stayed one night in November, and were also treated to glorious weather! The room here was comfortable, even the fold out bed, and the view from the terrace beautiful. The location on a quiet street above the town ensures a good nights sleep and having a separate entry is handy for you and other guests so that late night...

Accommodations were perfectly good -- friendly hosts, tasty breakfast, typical bed in a bit tight room.It is what it is. don't expect too much w/out the view. We were...

We arrived at Glacier Rock after quite a drive from Christchurch and Chris' warm welcome was greatly appreciated! There had been a hiccup with the booking system but Chris had it all sorted without fuss in no time. We stayed in the Kikorangi room since it was the only room that could accommodate 3 adults. The room was extremely cozy...

We stayed at the Glacier Rock B&B for 1 night on our way to Christchurch from Queenstown. The house was 2 min from the main shops/restaurants which didn't matter as we were driving anyway. The room was warm and well furnished, the towels and linen were clean and comfortable. Chris and Colin the hosts were lovely and welcoming. Chris makes...

The view through the sliding glass door, over the shared deck is amazing. Lake Tekapo is a gorgeous sight to wake up to. The is also a private entrance which made it east to...

We stayed for one night, and the hosts Chris and Colin were extremely helpful and friendly. The views of the Lake were stunning. Slightly far out of town but that didn't matter for one night. Breakfast was all home made bread and jam etc

We only stayed one night but we wished it was a month. Everything was perfect and the hosts could not have done more for us during our time with them. Additionally it was an excellent location. Take the Air Safaris flight for a magnificent view of the area.
