I spent a night in the backpackers during my trip around the south island, I appreciated the facilities, the location (very close to the lake!), the tidiness of the room and the kitchen, and the staff ! Very good stay overall, I would recommend it.

Ticked in all the right places. Price, Room space, Sleep Quality and Location. We Stayed on 10/9/2015 in the Penthouse with 5 family members in tow. We arrived amidst a chilly evening breeze (about 5pm-ish) and was delighted to be greeted by Don with lots of local infor on things to do and see surrounding Lake Tekapo and most of...

We had a perfect 1 night stay at Lake Tekapo Scenic Resort. We stayed in an upstairs room which gives a great view of the lake, the mountains and Church of the Good Shepherd. It was so easy with everything within walking distance, and the hosts were very accomodating.

We were on our honeymoon and stayed there for one night and wished we could extend it by a day. The room and bathroom were spacious neat and clean. The best part of this resort is its view from the balcony. You just feel like sitting there all day and enjoying the view. This was our second destination in New...

Located right on the shore of Lake Tekapo, the view from this resort is breathtaking. Like many hotels in New Zealand, the room comes equipped with a mini kitchenette, sufficient to make a simple meal. The only thing that I didn't like was that the only way to get fresh air in is to open the sliding door and pull...

We arrived in Lake Tekapo mid afternoon without a booking and based on the location of the Scenic Resort, we enquired for overnight accommodation. We got the "family room" right on the lakes edge, which we paid a little bit more for, but the view was worth it. Catherine (Owner?) was great in answering the many questions my husband had...

This was the first stop of our trip. We got a parking spot right out the front of the stairs that led up to our room. We were greeted with a friendly welcome, shown a map of the area and the key places were explained to us. Our room was simple but clean and warm with an amazing view of...

Spotless studio units with a fantastic view. Rooms very tidy, very well equipped and very well soundproofed. Travelling with a 4 year old was made easy as the huge range of DVDs in the reception (free to borrow) provided entertainment after skiing. The rooms didn't have anywhere to wash-up the dishes eventhough there are heating / snack preparation facilities but...

Stayed here for one night during the week at the start of august. Owners were real nice and friendly on reception, even gave vouchers for a free coffee and muffin to apologize for the 'inconvenience' of the parking area being under construction. As it really wasn't a big deal (other car parks are less than a 30 second walk away)...

We arrived in Lake Tekapo mid afternoon without a booking and based on the location of the Scenic Resort, we enquired for overnight accommodation. All the 'newer' looking apartments in the separate Lake facing block were full but we were offered a family apartment at the lake end of the original block with direct uninterrupted views of the lake.
