You really can't beat this place -- splendid views right on the lake, and you can sit and relax and/or eat inside & out (or in nearby restaurants) with those views always before you. Bedrooms (2) are in back, so completely quiet. Every possible amenity, and the hosts, a Swiss couple, are as nice and helpful as can be. They...

The owner , Walter, is very nice and helpful. We had the Garden View no3, well, Garden view is a bit overstated. More views of concrete and garages, felt like a cheap basement. Though well equiped, well positioned to the lake, I advise not to book this appartement.

This has to be one of the nicest places we've ever stayed - so that is saying something! The location in its own grounds facing out over Lake Tekapo is just wonderful. It is also just a short walk to the Church of the Good Shepherd and just a little further over the footbridge into the village. Put that together...

First visited The Chalet 2 years ago and was impressed by the location and style of the property. Back again this January for a anothers stay and wasn't disappointed. Still a great place to stay in Lake Tekapo. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed here for two nights in January. The owners are Swiss and great people. They helped my wife and me out of jam when I suddenly ended up with reservations for the wrong nights at another hotel in town. They were able to accommodate us, albeit in two different rooms for the correct nights. The first night we were...

The room is clean, spacious and well-equipped with cooking tools for self-cooking. Nice and helpful owner. He try to give me some insight when we are planning our next stop. Unforgettable stay and definitely will come back again.

This place is gorgeous! We stayed at the Henkel Hut for the first 2 days of our New Zealand trip. The view is unreal and they have everything you might need--cooking tools, local menus, etc. Fantastic hospitality!

we stayed here at December for two nights at unit 3. Walter was so wonderful and provide a lot of information including the weather alert for my hiking plans. The unit, the location and the price so good and would definitely come back in the future. Thanks again to have good memory at lake tekapo.

We booked the Henkel Hut for the last two nights of our trip to New Zealand and could not have picked a more breathtakingly beautiful location. This well appointed "hut" contained a modern kitchenette and a living room sofa situated perfectly to watch the sunset over the lake and mountains. Walter's wealth of information on all the local opportunities and...
