Great Location (well, Lake Tekapo is not that big, so nearly everything is good located). We (3 persons travelling together) stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was quite nice and good value. Showers and kitchen facilities are alright. Free wifi. But why do you squeeze 6 persons in one room, when two other doorms are completely empty?? Very unfriendly/rude...

If I am honest when I showed up I felt sceptical and snobby. I looked at the outside and judged too quickly. The location is right on the lake and you can take fantastic photos from your balcony. We arrived on a sunny day and the couple running the place were quick to point out were we should go to...

Lake Tekapo Village Motel was one of the best motels we visited during a 10-day tour of the South Island Our room had everything needed for a comfortable stay, along with some stunning views of the lake and mountains. Staff were incredibly friendly and knowledable about the local area - providing maps and information and what to see and do....

This place had ceiling fans in the main room and main bedroom which was a great substitution for air conditioning like we are used to at home. We had plenty of extra pillows (which were very...

We were in room 1, and what a stunning view! The room was incredibly well-appointed and comfortable. There are fans which work fine, but we did wish for air conditioning a few times. There can be a bit of noise from people walking around near the motel, but it never bothered us and wasn't too loud. Only other complaint would...

This is a good place to stay when around Lake Tekapo. We had a nice view with two chairs on the balcony. Rooms also OK and you're very close to shops and restaurants. Only annoying thing was that they are working on a parking space in front of the motel and so everybody used this to cross from the lake...

Arrived here in November 2016 in the evening. Stayed in one of the rooms on the upper level. Room facilities were in good order; clean and maintained. Supermarket is just a 3 minute walk away and there are restaurants and cafes all within walking distances. This room I had had a kitchenette for cooking simple meals so you the supermarket...
