Great location, stunning views, excellent accommodation, friendly reception from son of the owner but, his mother... oh boy! On arrival with an 11 month old baby, she told us that she would have never accepted our booking if she knew we were bringing a child of that age. Then proceeded to offer us an extended lecture on parenthood. We moved...

Amazing place to stay with wonderful views and great facilities. Easy walking distance into town and Walter was very helpful with tips on where to eat and what to do. Even on a rainy day it was all too easy to stay at 'home' and watch the scenery and just relax. Great to be able to do some washing free...

We had a two bedroom suite in the main house overlooking the lovely lake and we enjoyed our stay very much. The beds are comfortable, it's spotlessly clean, there's free washing machine facilities, the kitchen is well stocked with essentials, including coffee, tea, a corkscrew and a can opener! Our hosts were helpful. We could park right by the room...

Owners Walter and Zita were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in Henkel Hut which was very well set up with views from every window. Kitchen facilities great with a modern convection/ microwave oven. It was very cold outside but heating was excellent and a pot belly stove if you want it. We have travelled the world but the views...

So glad we found this place and would happily return anytime. Great location with awesome views up Lake Tekapo. The welcome from Walter was warm and helpful as were the tips for eating out in Tekapo village. The unit (no 2) was spotlessly clean and very well appointment. It's the little things that matter most and the attention to the...

There is absolutely nothing that can be faulted with this accommodation - GREAT and extremely helpful staff, cleanest facilities I've seen, STUNNING view, amazingly quiet and yet close enough to town to walk, just all round top notch. I stayed in Chalet #2 and it was brilliant. Would be perfect for groups, couples, families or solos. Can't recommend enough :)

Both my wife and I love this place. We lived in the seperate single house. it is just awasome. Fabulous lake ad snow mountain view from anywhere in the house. Ok, to be accurate, even in through the bedroom window you really cannot see the lake and mountain, but the scenery throughthe window is just as nice. I took pictures....

It was a blessing that the hotel we booked didn't have a vacancy, and we chanced upon this beautiful gem the day before we left for Lake Tekapo! We got the last room (couldn't remember now which unit it was), but the whole motel was so nicely run by the swiss family! *Thumbs up and hats off* Rooms were very...
