it is just in front of the park and the lake tekapo. but currently has some construction going on so a little bit dusty during the day. right next to the town centre I was really lucky to book the last room and i am very happy about my decision. The reception name is Wayne and he is very informative...

With a pub and beer garden at the foot of the stairs and a bakery five metres from the foot of the other set of stairs out the back and one of the World's great views from the balcony out the front, you would have to be very hard to please if you left Lake Tekapo Scenic Resort unsatisfied. From...

I stayed in a studio unit here with another family member. Aside from a queen, the other bed was a fold out sofa bed. It was comfortable enough, but when rolled out became a double bed. This was fine except that it took up far too much space and had to be folded up again in order to access the...

Huge view to go with the huge room. We had the family unit, upstairs, on the lake end of the motel. The room has a private balcony looking across the lake to the mountains. This unit was excellent value for money. The room was immaculately presented with everything you could ask for. Great hosts. Would highly recommend.

Since we mixed up our booking dates, we arrived Lake Tekapo without a booking. The whole town was full and the nearest available room is 100km away. We were extremely fortunate that there was a last minute cancellation at this hotel and we managed to secure a room. The managers were very accommodation and allowed the 4 of us to...

Spent one comfortable warm night in upstairs room with a great view of the lake when waking up in the morning. A warm welcome, well equipped clean room and good bathroom. Right in town and close to restaurants and cafes for dinner and breakfast.

I spent a night in the backpackers during my trip around the south island, I appreciated the facilities, the location (very close to the lake!), the tidiness of the room and the kitchen, and the staff ! Very good stay overall, I would recommend it.

Ticked in all the right places. Price, Room space, Sleep Quality and Location. We Stayed on 10/9/2015 in the Penthouse with 5 family members in tow. We arrived amidst a chilly evening breeze (about 5pm-ish) and was delighted to be greeted by Don with lots of local infor on things to do and see surrounding Lake Tekapo and most of...

We had a perfect 1 night stay at Lake Tekapo Scenic Resort. We stayed in an upstairs room which gives a great view of the lake, the mountains and Church of the Good Shepherd. It was so easy with everything within walking distance, and the hosts were very accomodating.

We were on our honeymoon and stayed there for one night and wished we could extend it by a day. The room and bathroom were spacious neat and clean. The best part of this resort is its view from the balcony. You just feel like sitting there all day and enjoying the view. This was our second destination in New...
