My husband and I stayed in the Birch holiday home, which was lovely. We had a great time and the girl on the front desk was polite and helpful. So when my sister, who was thinking of taking a group to Tekapo for her daughter's 5th birthday asked me what I thought, I didn't hesitate to recommend them. She showed...

Had 2 nights in 'the honeymoon suite' - very comfortable, well equipped and nice balcony to sit outside. We were lucky with the weather and were able to gaze at the milky way both evenings - stunning. Would return

A great location – only a couple of minutes’ walk to the Church of the Good Shepherd on the lake front. The Potting Shed accommodation and facilities was as described on the website and by other travellers so we knew what we were getting. Room not serviced but friendly staff were happy to provide clean towels. Good free wifi. The...

We stayed two nights in The Potting Shed, it was tiny but absolutely everything had been thought of. We went for the naked eye stargazing down at the lake where it was pretty cold, and it was lovely to come back to such a warm cottage. I really liked this place.

Stayed one night at the Garden Cottage. It is very near to the Church of the Good Shepherd which is about a 2 minute walk across a road. From the living room of the cottage, one can see the Church and the surrounding lake area. Absolutely beautiful. We can see the night sky speckled with stars. In fact there are...

Stayed here for just one night to get away. Great location, very quiet, and a short stroll to the lake and church. Room and decor very dated but clean and tidy. Team were very helpful and kind when I left something behind, and had it in a postage bag the next day - great service!

We were given a very warm welcome. We had been allocated Rowena Cottage which would have been a much better experience if it had been cleaned from top to bottom and decorated. The decor was very tired. There were more doors to the bedrooms just curtains. When we put the lights on having eventually found some switches, the electrics are...

( + ) -Great location. 2 minute walk to Lake Tekapo. 5-10 minute walk to restaurants/bars. -Nice size cottage for 2-4 people. The one we had included a small living space, full kitchen, dining space, and two “bedrooms.” They are in quotes because the rooms don’t have doors. Just curtains or partitions to separate it from the other rooms in...

Stayed 4 nights in two bedroom, two bathroom cottage with kitchen / dining between bedrooms. Cottage was clean , tidy and comfortable. Having the ensuite bathroom to each bedroom was great. Nice covered verandah to site on and enjoy the view to snow covered mountains. Cottages are reasonably quiet and private being away from the roads. Cottage was also warm,...

We stayed two nights at the Tekapo Cottages, in a two bedroom cottage. There were good points and bad points. Following are the pros and cons--- Pros— . 1. The View -- The view out the porch—basically a handicap ramp – was beautiful: a range of snow-capped mountains. 2. Location. The location is excellent – easy walking distance to the...
