Absolutely great place! Attention to detail is very high. Very big apartment, all the bells and whistles and the view to lake tekapo is unparalleled!!! Tremendous! Only about 3 minutes drive to town centre, very nice and quiet. And awesome skylight just above bed for star gazing 😄

We had a three night stay over a long weekend and enjoyed every day. The view of the Lake & surrounding mountains with their changing moods gave us the relaxing weekend we were looking for - far away from the city, people & traffic. The motel facilities were just as described - modern and had a number of special touches...

We have been staying here for several years now and have just returned from another fabulous weekend. The accommodation is purpose built consisting of 3 side by side units - all with amazing views across the lake. The rooms themselves are just immaculate and perfectly maintained - very tastefully decorated too. We have had holidays there throughout all seasons, so...

We traveled around the South Island for two weeks and stayed two nights at Lakeview, Lake Tekapo. It is situated away from the main centre of Lake Tekapo, in a quiet area with Lake views. The accommodation was lovely and perfect for a couple. The rooms were light, modern and very clean. They are nicely decorated and the living area...

Stopped here one night recently and would have left a positive review until this happened. We checked out of the hotel around 9:30am and at around 10:00am received a call accusing us (girlfriend and myself) of spilling water on the carpet (I walk around bare foot and wasn't aware of any such problem, so couldn't have been bad at all)....

These people are liars! We are not thieves! We did not contact them regarding spilt water – we contacted them regarding the flooded carpet at the entrance to the bathroom (all towels in room were sodden in an obvious attempt to try and minimise the damage). We contacted them and offered for them to return to our business to survey...

Good location just before the main township, a nice quiet road so perfect for relaxing. Great layout in room and really cool skylight above the bed for stargazing (can be closed if you like it dark) We were in Crux which seems to be near the water pump (it was noisy when one of the other two units were running...

This little boutique B and B, a few minutes out of town, has all the comforts of home with fantastic bedding and superb blockout curtains so that you can sleep in if the weather turns nasty. Looking out to the gorgeous lake is a plus and the stargazing window above the bed is a cute touch. Loved the high pressure...
