This is a great place for multiple families with great bedroom space. 2 large bedrooms upstairs with a shared bathroom and then an amazing space downstairs for children or a whole family, with it's own bathroom and kitchen space. I think it's important to mentioned that there is NO Wifi here ... we were not aware of this until we... More

This place is in the super small town of Tekapo, and is a little away from the Lake itself, so you dont get a view of the lake. But because it's at a slight height, you get brilliant views of everything around you. We were lucky, because we booked a room with the host, which would have been smaller and... More

It was the last place available in town when we arrived. We were lucky to have this great place to stay with a very welcoming couple. You feel like home, very comfy and very cleaned. Expect to pay 140$NZ per night for a room.

My only complaint is of myself...that we didn't stay longer in Lake Tekapo with Ann and Tony. The Tekapo Top House is just that...at the Top of Lake Tekapo, literally! Their house is situated on the very top of the neighborhoods of Lake Tekapo which makes the surroundings so peaceful. The en-suite room is very well appointed, with everything you... More

… and the finest of views in every direction. We thoroughly enjoyed Ann & Tony's company over a glass of wine and nibbles before we walked down into the town in the evening. If you're fortunate to have a clear night sky, do accompany Tony on the balcony for some star and planet gazing. We left Tekapo Top House fully... More

What a great evening with Anne and Tony. Room with windows and views on three sides, all glorious. Clear clear evening and stars filling the sky - and with Tony's commentary the stars all identified! Beautiful home, beautiful people.

This is a beautiful B & B with amazing hosts. You will be made to feel very welcome, and the room was lovely with views of the lakes and mountains, just stunning. The breakfast was cereal, and toast which was just what we wanted.

We stayed for one night at the Tekapo Top House - everything was perfect and immaculate. A lovely room was put up to welcome our stay with amazing view of surrounding mountains. A must for all star-gazers. Friendly hosts (Ann and Tony) were extremely helpful in giving us recommendations for things to do in Tekapo. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay... More

Of our entire trip, this was my favourite lodging. When you step into Tekapo Top House, you step into the lives of Anne and Tony Crowe, and they into yours. Though it was our first and only B&B of the trip, I think they have truly set the bar. Their home is beautiful and cosy and it really is a... More

Last week I had the privilege of staying at Tekapo Top House with Anne and Tony Crowe. Anne and Tony’s home is ideally placed to capture the feelings and atmosphere of the McKenzie Country being on a high point with generous views.
