We absolutely loved our stay at Tekapo Heights! Sarah welcomed us warmly and showed us our room right away, even though we arrived early. We enjoyed the cookies and treats that were left on our bed. And the bed itself was extremely comfortable. Everything felt luxurious - the robes, the walk-in closet, the heated floors in the bath room, the...

We were really impressed by the B&B. We arrived quite late after a long drive into town and was greeted immediately by our host, Sarah. Sarah showed us our newly refurbished room which was beautifully done, and we thought the cookies and little amenities were a nice touch. The hotel was further up the road but not hard to find,...

Wonderful Bed and breakfast in Tekapo. Hotels there seem a little run down and this was a slightly pricier option but was very nice. The owner is fantastic. We were in room 3, which is the only room that doesn't have a self contained bathroom, but it is right across the hall from your room and nobody else uses it...

Very upscale, elegant bed and breakfast in a peaceful and quiet part of Tekapo. Good parking, nice accommodations. Sarah, the proprietor, was very friendly and helpful. Not inexpensive but good value for New Zealand. This place has been fully renovated, it's in a new subdivision which is a nice part of town.

Really nice welcome and we were looked after very well. Our room had a smashing walk in cloakroom which is handy when you have a partner who leaves things lying around. Well provided continental breakfast and plenty of local advice. A few minutes walk from the lake and town and as a result nice and quiet.

A bit of a walk into town but very warm welcome, excellent room and bathroom. Would be even better in summer with access to outdoor seating. Lovely breakfast and superb last night of a fantastic five week holiday in a lovely country with so many friendly people.

Beautiful accommodation, gorgeous bathroom (with a delicious deep tub), comfiest bed we slept in over two weeks in NZ, great location for visiting Lake Tekapo. And the host was amazing, she truly went WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND when I left my ipad there. I am still so grateful! Can't recommend this place enough.

We did pay more to stay here than many of the other accomodations on our trip, but it was truly special. The rooms were spacious, very clean and beautifully decorated. We also enjoyed breakfast with a fantastic view. The gardens were also lovely.

We stayed for one night at the Tekapo Heights B&B and enjoyed our stay! The hotel is a bit of a hike up a hill from where the buses let off and the main road through town but you are rewarded with a lovely view! We stayed in a king bed room with an en suite shower, plus we had...

Stayed for one night. The room had a wonderful view and a really great modern shower in the en-suite. I wish I had asked the name of the manufacturer! Spacious and comfortable, but it lacked a communal lounge area which was disappointing. The hosts were pleasant and relaxed.
