My fiancé and I stayed here for two nights, which is about enough time in Tekapo. The staff were fantastic; friendly and very helpful. The standard of the rooms were excellent; modern, clean, well equipped, and great views.

I was waiting in front of reception for a friend, who was staying at the motel, to come down when I got told in a very unfriendly manner that I can't sit here because it's his private property. Planned to stay the night there after discussing plans with my mate, but I guess somewhere else where I am welcome will...

Perfect location right in the middle of town. The staff were so helpful with all our questions and gave us great information about where to eat and what to do. Free DVDs for the teenager. We have a really nice balcony that overlooked the lake as well.

Beautiful view of the lake, church, mountains, and bridge! Great location with lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Manager was very nice; clean rooms; comfy bedding! We had coffee and pastries at the observatory on the mountain on our way out of town the next morning. Great overnight stop for road trip.

The owners were very friendly and helpful, and our son loved the DVD collection. Recommendations for eating out was provided, along with a map for the area and we...

Took an upstair studio facing Lake Tekapo. While there was a good view, the unit is not at the edge of the lake. There is a field in between. Location is excellent being situated within the small town centre with easy walking access the restaurants and amenities. As for the unit, it was a little bit dated. Otherwise, it was...

We had a balcony overlooking the the whole area including the church,lakes and the snow capped mountains, and with a glass of wine and nibbles with a view worth a million dollars and a manager, Wayne giving good advice on what to see and where to eat the 3 nights went very quickly, again we could have spent longer

We enjoyed our 2-night stay at this motel. Our room (#4) was clean and spacious, with a great patio-door view of the lake and mountains. Staff were friendly and helpful, with good recommendations for dining and sight-seeing. WiFi is free for only a limited amount of data; not really enough.

We stayed in a unit facing the beautiful lake with the snow caped mountains in the background...amazing peaceful view. Greeted warmly by Wayne and shown to our very clean and comfortable unit including a spa. Very close to shops and restaurants and a 2minute walk from the Intercity bus stop. Wayne & Debbie were both happy to store our luggage....

Booking done online via hotels.com no issues when we arrived. Payment was not required until arrival which was an important factor in choosing this hotel.

Located in centre...
