Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here for 2 nights over Waitangi weekend and had a lovely stay. The hosts Sue and Dave were very friendly and helpful. Dave even put on an extra sprinkler outside our room so our son could play and cool down in the 30 degree heat! We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and the standard was very high with some practical touches; lots of good lighting,usb charge points. The kitchen was very well stocked for any type of cooking. We are picking here but a wooden spoon and bread knife would make the kitchen perfect!
Fantastic view of the lake with oversized sliding doors but surprisingly quiet with the highway nearby. We would stay again!

Hi guys it was lovely having you stay and glad your son enjoyed the sprinkler - (I was very tempted to join him ha ha.) Sorry to hear about the wooden spoon as all our units do have them - they have a grey painted handle. Please remember if you come and stay again please do not hesitate to ask us for anything, we are here to ensure our guests have a wonderful stay and have all the necessities. We took onboard your suggestion about the Bread Knife (which we think is a very good idea) and now all our units have them, so thank you for your feed back. Take care and hope you will come and stay again soon. Regards Sue and Dave

Top 5 star accommodation at Lake Tekapo at Great prices.
I have stayed in Tekapo many times in the past and this is the best location for viewing lake tekapo the quality, presentation, amenities, bathroom are the best.
Heated floor in the bathroom, 4 varieties of spray on the shower head, full kitchen with heat pump and additional heater if required. Large TV, internet connection is great just a pleasure to stay at the Grant Suits Lake Tekapo.
Our hosts Dave and Sue will welcome everyone and are very helpful, even a discount voucher for breakfast at Jack Rabits restaurant the next morning.
Will I stay there again, yes every time I visit.
Thanks Mike

Liked · Newly built & open since September, 2022, this hotel was most notable for its very contemporary decor and amenities, such as a heated bathroom floor, heated bathroom towels, large shower stall, water conserving bathroom faucet (conserves water when faucet handle is partially lifted up), 4 USB charging outlets in the room (2 at the bedside), extremely comfortable king sized bed, phenomenal room views of Lake Tekapo and its surrounding snow-capped mountains, not to also mention the complimentary milk & coffee for the room. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful & professional.

Disliked · No signs depicting the hotel name at the front of the hotel nor at the street level to indicate its location. Even with Apple "Maps", we still drove past the hotel and had to back-track to find the hotel. Though the hotel is moderately expensive, it was definitely worth the price. Only continental breakfast was available (did not purchase).

This is a brand-new property (opened Sept 2022) and is in a great location, just across the bridge and a 3 min walk to the village with plenty of views of the lake.

All furniture, décor & amenities are of an excellent quality.

Our hosts (Sue & Dave) treated us like family - they know what they’re doing and were very accommodating with our room request. We appreciated the friendly chats and helpful info on the area.

We’d happily recommend to family & friends and would stay there again.

Only suggestion might be for a small table & chairs for the balcony to enjoy a morning coffee or afternoon wine (but this a new property and might already be on their To-Do List!)

Hi Toddy Thanks for your great review it is greatly appreciated. we are in the process of getting outdoor furniture .we cannot just put any furniture out there as when the winds come up,so the owners will probably have to get things that are fixed to the ground. Looking forward to your next visit. Regards Dave and Sue

This is a great place to stay and hard to fault.

Comfortable, located close to attractions, restuarants which are both a short walk away, easy parking, a small view and the interior well appointed and spotless.

Certainly will stay here again if in the area and have no hesitation to recommend.

The Grand Suites is a new build. It is finished to a modern high standard. The rooms are very well appointed, very spacious, and very comfortable. The town of Lake Tekapo is quite small so, despite being on the other side of the bridge, it is a short walk to shops, bars and restaurants.

Some rooms towards the eastern end of the main building do not have a view of the lake. Ours did not. This was not a major concern for us, but be aware when booking if this is a deal breaker for you. Having said that, once you've seen the lake, you've seen it, and you can't see it at night anyway.

There is no onsite restaurant or cafe where you could grab a quick coffee. There is coffee (quality pods) in the room, and milk is supplied.

The town isn't busy so it's quiet. You won't be disturbed at night.

The beds are very comfortable and clean. The bathroom is immaculate and sets a high standard for NZ. All the things you'd expect in a hotel bathroom, soap, shampoo, etc. are present.

If I were staying in Lake Tekapo again (unlikely), I would certainly choose to stay at Grand Suites.

We were a "walk in".
The friendly staff showed us a couple of options of rooms available and we chose a room with a lake view on the second storey.
The room was quiet with a private balcony and far enough off the main road for the traffic not to be noticed.
Everything was 5 star and we felt like we were at home.
The bed was excellent and the decor modern.

Our stay at grand suites lake Tekapo was stunning. We opted to upgrade to one of the deluxe suites, which I highly recommend doing! For the extra cost, it was well worth it. Beautiful spacious room, great kitchen, bathroom was gorgeous and the shower and heated tiles - amazing! The owners/staff were so helpful and friendly, and allowed us to check in quite late due to our plans changing at the last minute. It was a gorgeous location, we had lake views from our room and the bed was so comfy and HUGE. A 4 minute walk away, we went and had a great breakfast with 10% off (mention grand suites to get this) at Jack Rabbit Cafe, the food was delicious and the view incredible. We wouldn't have gone to jack rabbit if not recommended by grand suites! Easily the best place we stayed at during our New Zealand trip. Thank you so much to the lovely owners, you guys were so kind and awesome! We will for sure come back and will be recommending this amazing place to anyone we know who travels to tekapo. Absolutely beautiful place

We stayed here for two nights during our NZ road trip and would recommend it to everyone.
The hotel is tastefully decorated with great amenities in the room and the view from our balcony over the lake was magical.
The continental breakfast provided was generous in size and tasty. Staff friendly and helpful. Despite bad weather on the main day we had in lake Tekapo (and both our glacial lake boat trip and night sky watching being cancelled) we enjoyed our stay in Lake Tekapo due to the comfort of this hotel.

This was the best view from any accommodation we stayed at in New Zealand over 11 nights. We had an Executive Studio upstairs with a view of the mountains and lake. So relaxing and idyllic. Everything was modern, the bathroom was gorgeous and the furnishings were stylish. Housekeeping was unobtrusive (I hate when they make your beds) with the opportunity for fresh towels each day if required. We had a large balcony and an easy walk into town and to the iconic church and lake. The hosts were lovely and obviously took pride in the suites. I believe the suites may only be a year or two old. There is a lift which was great for heavy suitcases. The bed was in the main area, not in a separate bedroom. I believe there are one bedroom apartments available but the Executive Suites have better views.
