This hotel is great value for money. Actually it does not feel like a hotel especially if you book one of the 2 bedroom apartments. Staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. They had no problem upgrading our room. Try out the restaurant for dinner. You won't be disappointed.

Had a 1 bedroomed unit for 4 nights. Very spacious and comfortable, with everything you could need except bathrobes and scissors. The view, upstairs and downstairs was amazing, it was lovely to sit on the balcony and watch the subtle colour changes on Lake Tekapo throughout the day. Highly recommended.

This is a very nice hotel, in keeping with the natural environment. We visit Tekapo each year with a group of friends and either stay here or the Mantra. Personally I feel the Mantra is best suited for a group as it is more suitable for socialization. However Peppers is attractively decorated, has one of the best locations in town,...

We enjoy the property so much exclude the wifi . We have stayed in Christchurch, Oamaru, Dunedin, Te Anau, Queenstown all the way to Lake Tekapo. All the accomodations provide free unlimited wifi except Peppers Bluewater Resort.

Great apt with excellent views and very friendly staff We ended up double booking and the staff were very kind to cancel a booking without a charge! I loved the spacious one bedroom apt which was very neat and clean. Only downside is the Internet with 100MB for one night which was definitely quite limited.

Love that they have 2-heaters in the room. Love that their duvet are clean. Bed are comfortable like 5* although this is 4* rated. Love it that their bathroom are super clean and well maintained and warm(with good heater!) Water from bathroom are clean and filtered. The only drawback is that we need to climb the staircase.

Make sure you book a lakefront room. There is heaps of accommodation but very few that have a breathtaking views. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was great. Except. . There was only 1 bathroom downstairs were the bedrooms where. It was poorly designed with no room to even put a wet pack. Shower was really small. I...

Each room features STD/ISD telephone, tea and coffee making facilities, air conditioning and complimentary grooming items.
