We absolutely loved our 2 bedroom place at Peppers. The view from our balcony was amazing, the house was lovely and clean, the upstairs living area was huge, the fireplace made for a cosy evening and the sunset from our house looked incredible. Highly recommend staying here.

The balconies are very close together and we got no sleep due to a neighbouring room up all night chatting loudly on their balcony. The location is great as are the larger rooms and apartments. The cheap rooms are simply an overnighter and are very small, best to invest in a larger one as we upgraded immediately upon arrival.

Lake Tekapo is our favourite Ski Field. Its easy for the casual skier. We always stay at Peppers and enjoy their big breakfast and great Dinners. Good dining and very nice meals. Its a must go for a weekend easy trip. Plenty to do in the town with Ice Skating, hot pools ,Snow slides and the great night sky.

We were a bit disappointed by Peppers. It took a fair while to check in on arrival. The room was pretty small and cold, but clean enough. The free internet allocation was over and done with in about two minutes with further options for browsing pretty expensive. We reported a loud, repetitive noise (door or furniture banging in the wind?)...

Pure luxury. The rooms have everything you could wish for. Large comfy beds, comfy chairs. Full bathroom with heated floor and towel rails. The rooms are very spacious. The on-site restaurant is a bonus. The buffet breakfast is very good value for money

nice and cosy. i stayed in the lakeview 2bedroom suite. everything is good but i think the living room should be on the ground floor instead. i came here with my family and relatives. my group of 9 includes elderly. so it is not very convenient for them to walk up and down the stairs.

I was so pleased we booked here. Our room 'Deluxe Double with Lake View' was spacious, including the bathroom. The view from our room was amazing, you also get a great vie from the restaurant. The bed was very comfortable. I would recommend getting the buffet breakfast.

We were a bit disappointed as we have stayed at several other Peppers resorts and this is by far the worst. Some of the issues we found were: - There was a sanitary napkin lying outside our door through our whole stay. Very surprising that the staff did not remove this. - Room service did not fill up our toilet...

World class views and lovely apartment. However I got the impression that guests posed somewhat of an inconvenience to the staff. When I checked in there was one other guest also checking in and one staff member serving. Despite standing right in front of the receptionist he didn't even glance up and make eye contact or smile for what felt...
