Lake Tekapo is literally a few steps in front of the lodge. 2min drive to Church of The Good Shepherd. Insanely starry skyline to enjoy. Though small, our 4-bed dorm was cosy.
Check-out instructions on returning bedsheets can be confusing. Took us some time to figure it out (note: you need to return pillow case, bed sheet & top sheet).
Shame that they don't provide free WiFi.
