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.

Writing this review now is about to be irrelevant, as the current owners have sold the property to new owners who will be taking over in a month or two. The current owners are very nice and have cute cats and dogs. The main issue I have will remain regardless of ownership is that the bathroom for my room was...

Really enjoyed our stay here where we were looked after very well! Our host provided us with all the info we needed and we enjoyed a leisurely cooked breakfast the following morning, which was really nice. Would definitely recommend staying here for 1, 2 or more nights. Awesome view from our Lake View Room too! Loved it!

We only stayed a night but it was warm and comfortable. The bathroom was across the hall so if that doesn't suit maybe book an ensuited room. We had tea and coffee making facilities, electric blanket, a cute little dog and the position is quite central. Not sure if I'd stay again but at Tekapo prices was ok.

My partner and I stayed over at the property for just one night. The room was comfortable and large. The attached bathroom was a treat. Not much of TV watchers so we didnt use that much. The room opens to the front parking area giving us a full view of the night sky. Tranquil and peaceful. Breakfast was not included...
