It's spacious clean and well equipped. It's quiet even though on the road. Great balcony for viewing stars. Cooking area spacious and well equipped. Too many motels this one included have notices about cooking curries or seafood referring to these food as having bad smells. We are not keen on having some people's food choices described in this way. Rather...

We drove from Queenstown to Lake Tekapo. Lovely scenery and lots of places to stop and explore during the day. We had an upstairs room in the Motel. It was adequately stocked with crockery and cutlery but only a microwave to cook in, and no washing up area (a basin was provided for this), so you would probably need to...

We were travelling with my 70 year old mother and booked Lake Tekapo Village Motel well in advance asking for the room closest to the lake. The staff graciously acknowledged and granted this request and we enjoyed our stay. The rooms are on the smaller side and the bathroom is quite small with not a lot of storage. We were...

Dear Madam/Sir, RE: Beautiful Lavender farms welcome the Lake Tekapo. The place is amazingly beautiful and overwhelmingly picturesque. A pure photographers delight along the roadside. Very scenic. Thank You.

If I am honest when I showed up I felt sceptical and snobby. I looked at the outside and judged too quickly. The location is right on the lake and you can take fantastic photos from your balcony. We arrived on a sunny day and the couple running the place were quick to point out were we should go to...

Perfectly located next to the shop and cafes/restaurants. Ample parking and lovely view of the lake from our first floor room (two small flights of steps to carry your luggage up). Free, fast internet. Room was spacious with balcony overlooking the lake, fridge and kettle facilities but no air con. There was a ceiling fan however but the room was...

Lake Tekapo Village Motel was one of the best motels we visited during a 10-day tour of the South Island Our room had everything needed for a comfortable stay, along with some stunning views of the lake and mountains. Staff were incredibly friendly and knowledable about the local area - providing maps and information and what to see and do....

You can walk to all of the main restaurants and shops from this motel. Our room had amazing views of the lake and mountains. This place had ceiling fans in the main room and main bedroom which was a great substitution for air conditioning like we are used to at home. We had plenty of extra pillows (which were very...

We were in room 1, and what a stunning view! The room was incredibly well-appointed and comfortable. There are fans which work fine, but we did wish for air conditioning a few times. There can be a bit of noise from people walking around near the motel, but it never bothered us and wasn't too loud. Only other complaint would...

This is a good place to stay when around Lake Tekapo. We had a nice view with two chairs on the balcony. Rooms also OK and you're very close to shops and restaurants. Only annoying thing was that they are working on a parking space in front of the motel and so everybody used this to cross from the lake...
