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...

We stayed at Tekapo Heights in November last year - the accomodation was very comfortable and immaculately clean. The bathroom, whilst not en-suite, was perfect in every other way. Breakfast was yummy. The hosts were very helpful and even offered us a lift as our rental car had broken down. We wish we could have stayed longer than the one...

We only had one night here but would happily have stayed longer. Room was comfortable and bathroom had wonderful shower (lights, radio!). Breakfast featured home made bread and there were home made biscuits in the room - nice touches. Host was welcoming and gave us a map explaining where the restaurants were. It's a 5-10 minute easy walk to the...

Just spent a very pleasant couple of days staying in this lovely B&B. A very warm welcome from the owners, who were very friendly and helpful. The room was great and had everything you could want, with distant views of the lake and gardens. It's situated just up the road from the small town of Tekapo and is just a...

We stayed here for one night. The owner was very friendly and recommended restaurants in the town. The room had everything you would need, bathroom was well equipped and room comfortable. The breakfast room has a fantastic view and there was a good selection of food available. The location is a short walk downhill to the small town. It is...
