We stayed for one night at the Tekapo Heights B&B and enjoyed our stay! The hotel is a bit of a hike up a hill from where the buses let off and the main road through town but you are rewarded with a lovely view! We stayed in a king bed room with an en suite shower, plus we had... More

Stayed for one night. The room had a wonderful view and a really great modern shower in the en-suite. I wish I had asked the name of the manufacturer! Spacious and comfortable, but it lacked a communal lounge area which was disappointing. The hosts were pleasant and relaxed.

Writing this review now is about to be irrelevant, as the current owners have sold the property to new owners who will be taking over in a month or two. The current owners are very nice and have cute cats and dogs. The main issue I have will remain regardless of ownership is that the bathroom for my room was... More

Really enjoyed our stay here where we were looked after very well! Our host provided us with all the info we needed and we enjoyed a leisurely cooked breakfast the following morning, which was really nice. Would definitely recommend staying here for 1, 2 or more nights. Awesome view from our Lake View Room too! Loved it!

We only stayed a night but it was warm and comfortable. The bathroom was across the hall so if that doesn't suit maybe book an ensuited room. We had tea and coffee making facilities, electric blanket, a cute little dog and the position is quite central. Not sure if I'd stay again but at Tekapo prices was ok.

My partner and I stayed over at the property for just one night. The room was comfortable and large. The attached bathroom was a treat. Not much of TV watchers so we didnt use that much. The room opens to the front parking area giving us a full view of the night sky. Tranquil and peaceful. Breakfast was not included... More

We stayed at Tekapo Heights in November last year - the accomodation was very comfortable and immaculately clean. The bathroom, whilst not en-suite, was perfect in every other way. Breakfast was yummy. The hosts were very helpful and even offered us a lift as our rental car had broken down. We wish we could have stayed longer than the one... More

We only had one night here but would happily have stayed longer. Room was comfortable and bathroom had wonderful shower (lights, radio!). Breakfast featured home made bread and there were home made biscuits in the room - nice touches. Host was welcoming and gave us a map explaining where the restaurants were.
