Our welcome at Tekapo Lodge was so sincere and so warm that we immediately felt at home. The accommodations are superb. A beautifully appointed King size bedroom with a gorgeous view of the lake. The room has French patio doors walking out onto a small covered veranda where we enjoyed the last few, warm, sun rays of an early winter's...

We were looked after well in a very nice room and enjoyed our short stay at lake tekapo lodge. The highlight was definitely the lovely breakfast cooked by Alisdair. It is a B And B so you do share your table with other guests.

Hi Nick. Many thanks for your review and pleased you enjoyed your stay. The service we offer is an intimate hosted bed and breakfast with six adult guests only. Breakfast is a communal affair. We do offer a guest lounge with self service complimentary drinks and often guests converse and make new friends - that is if they have not...

Just had amazing stay with Stephanie & Alistair. Luxurious rooms, comfort plus. Was delighted with balcony off room that had sun loungers and was a neat place to relax and absorb fantastic view of lake & mountains. Village was a short walk away & catered for tourist shopping. Breakfast was scrumptious. Evening meal was additional but well worth the extra...

My husband and I stayed one night at Lake Tekapo Lodge. Stephanie enthusiastically greeted us and showed her around her lovely home. She informed us she had taken the liberty of making dinner reservations at one of the few restaurants in town as it was a Friday night and they tend to get busy. We really appreciated her thoughtfulness and...

Stayed at Tekapo Lodge 16th March for two evenings and what a beautiful place. You know you are somewhere special when you arrive and outside the front door is a welcoming sign with the Christian names of the guests listed. The guest house overlooks Lake Tekapo with great views of the mountains. The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable, as...

We only stayed one night, but enjoyed it very much. The three king-sized rooms have all been carefully remodeled and designed, and are large and comfortable. Stephanie, the host, is warm and welcoming, without being at all intrusive. Highly recommend.

We had a fabulous stay in Alastair and Stephanie's beautiful home.

Stephanie and Alistair are amazing hosts, they think of everything. Stephanie had even reserved a place for dinner at one of the local restaurants in advance of our arrival as the town does get busy.

Hi! Many thanks for the review and glowing accolades! Yes, Tekapo is getting much busier than we have seen in the past five years since we established this business and moved here. The days of wandering down to the village and walking in to a restaurant of choice are limited... It is easier to cancel than to reserve. So pleased...
