Our needs for hotels/motels on this trip were quite simple. We were two adults taking part in a cycle race so we needed room for two bikes, preferably a kitchenette to make breakfast early before each stage, laundry facilities would be good for smelly kit and good black out curtains for a decent nights sleep. Wifi and nearby restaurants were...

Tekapo is a very small town with limited accommodation. We picked the Scenic resort as the location was close to all the restaurants and shops. Also the resort had a great view of the lake. We booked the 2bed room apartment with one bathroom. Rooms were not big and on the ground floor. The room has a great view of...

Perfectly adequate motel but no wow factor. Worth paying more $ for the " family executive suite" as this is more private and has the best views. Good kitchenette facilities with pots, utensils etc. all very clean. Only a few steps to restaurants, cafes. Unfortunately, construction work is going on in front of the motels at present but if you...

There is not a lot to choose from in Lake Tekapo area and most all the accommodations look pretty sparse. This was an older property, but certainly functional in every way. You do see the lake from your window and you have a private balcony to use for enjoying the view. There is construction going on between you and the...

Reasonable size room over looking the beautiful Lake Tepako. Wayne was very helpful and friendly when checking in. Wifi is free but be warned it is only 3 x 100MB. We used each voucher in about 10-15 mins (with two devices) when checking facebook! Also we stayed here on a Friday night and the pub two doors down played loud...

We stayed here for one night. The lodge was spacious and comfortable with 2 bedrooms and a living dinning area. We had a balcony that looked out onto lake tekapu. The views were just stunning. The beds were very firm but comfortable. There were shops and restaurants within walking distance. The lady that checked us in was very pleasant and...

Stayed in the executive family suite which had the best views. Had our own kitchenette, microwave hotplates,full fridge and own balcony on the first floor. Comfortable beds, plenty of blankets. Stunning views of the whole lake and the church of the good shepherd. Very centrally located to walk to restaurants, cafes and grocery shop. Loved the ice skating rink in...

Room was average, clean and tidy. Awesome view from balcony. Very friendly staff. Would recommend if staying in Tekapo as we heard from others staying at more expensive places it wasn't worth the money. Glad we stayed here, just a short walk to everything.

The room was modern and clean. It is better on the inside than it looks on the outside. There are plenty of food and shopping options within an easy walk. Be sure to go out at night and look at the stars. Better yet drive 5 minutes out of town and go to an open field. Take a blanket and...
