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. An...

Excellent location right near restaurants, bakery, minimart etc. Kids loved playing in the snow just outside the room. Limited internet - I don't understand why so many places put a low limit on internet usage....not so convenient when you have to stay in contact with your office.

Lucky to have chosen this great accommodation - rooms were spotless which extended to all the property, very well kept. Couldn't have had a better spot to view the lake and mountains. Hosts were welcoming and I had the most relaxing holiday. Loved the spa bath :))

Room was comfortable, we particularly enjoyed the spa bath tub in the bathroom. Good view of the lake, however there was some construction going on which kinda spoils the view. Not sure how long will it last. Good location, right next to the cafes and the tour bookings (earth and sky office is right there).

we stayed with my 16yr old son in room 18, it had a pull out couch for his bed, which seemed adequate. There is a beautiful view of the lake from a small balcony which worked well for us taking photos of the night sky. The room was warm with a towel warmer which was nice, the shower was a...

What a lovely place to stay. Fantastic view of the lake with a short walk to the shore and very close to the township with four square, tourist shops & restaurants. I wouldn't go as far as to call it a resort but nice hubby & wife running the place. It was clean, tidy and warm we even had the...

The room was clean, comfortable & warm with the best view out over the lake to the mountains. The village & restaurants are at your...

First of all, let's get one thing straight - a resort it ain't. The hotel is located in the middle of Tekapo, with easy access to the road, a gas station, a small (and expensive) supermarket and some eateries. We spent 2 nights here. We booked a "family upstairs" room and were assigned room number 3. The room is on...

We do show our guests to their rooms, and encourage them to approach reception or management if there is anything at all unsatisfactory about their accommodation. If we cannot remedy the issue, we have no hesitation in arranging alternative accommodation to...

The room had great views and was comfortable and warm on a cold night. Our room did not have a kitchenette. It was on the first floor which made taking our bags up the stairs and along the landing a bit of a haul. Check in and service was made easy and was very friendly.
