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.

Very well appointed, cosy and comfortable. We arrived on a very cold day and the heating had been turned on in anticipation of our arrival so was lovely and warm when we got there. Downstairs consisted of open plan lounge (with gas fire and heat pump), dining & full kitchen, downstairs toilet and internal access single garage with full laundry facilities. Upstairs was 2 x king rooms (usually 1 x king and 1 x twin but bedding was changed to 2 x king at our request) with large wardrobes and electric heaters, a full bathroom with bath, shower, toilet and underfloor heating. Beds were warm and comfortable and shower had great water pressure. Apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped.

The house was superb - spacious and all the facilities we needed. There was a good amount of privacy despite being in the centre of a complex of houses/apartments and the pool facilities were great. It was very quiet due to the lack of international travellers (lucky us). The only thing missing was some cleaning items so we could clear up after meals etc (dishwasher tablets, cloth etc)but these were provided immediately when we asked at reception. Slightly odd how the building rattled a bit when trucks went past on the main road (which is not that close) but we got used to it and it wasnt a biggy. Would definately go back.

Last min booking but still received a good service. the apartment was warm om arrival, clean and tidy. The duty manager from Peppers (Sister Hotel) called to check we found the keys ok and were accommodating with re booking again for another night.

The only negative was that there was no fresh milk, given that this is a large chain i struggle that the only milk provided is individual UHT sachets.
when i called to request fresh milk i was advised that it was only the UHT available, we stayed at many cheaper motels on this trip where fresh milk was provided on arrival.

Unfortunately, I assumed that all the accommodations in Lake Tekapo have views of the lake and/or the mountains. There was no view to speak of apart from some bushes. Although it is a "self-catering" type of accommodation, we did not think that we should go to the supermarket to get our breakfast supplies for 2 days, let alone dinner but there is no restaurant and we had to go to Peppers for our breakfast. Had we known there was no view from Mantra and no breakfast, we would have booked at Peppers. The "maid service" was minimal with only towels and shower and bath gel replaced, The bed was not made, there was no vacuuming, cleaning, washing up and no refills of water. Disappoiting stay at an Accor property. There is no 24-hour reception service. The hotel is somewhat out of the way and certainly not where most of the local accommodation, services and restaurants are located.

We have been to tekapo often and have tried out many of the accomodation options, and have always been left disappointed and underwhelmed with the quality and value for money. We decided to try the mantra and were left really impressed. They complex consisted of individual town houses, each with their own driveway and garage. The downstairs has a complete (fully equipped) kitchen, large living area and dining table, with an outside courtyard. There was washing facilities in the garage and also a downstairs toilet. Upstairs has the bedrooms and bathrooms. The unit was modern, super clean and had all you could ask for. The manager was friendly and helpful, checking in each day to ensure all our needs were met. It’s an easy walk to the shops and waterfront. Highly recommended, we have now found the best place to stay in tekapo, so we will be back!

The official Mantra Lake Tekapo website says “This Hotel has a restaurant” This is not true; there is NO restaurant or bar. The receptionist said we have to go to the restaurant at Peppers Blue Water Estate which is 1.3 Km away for dinner and breakfast. (Mantra please correct your website)

The accommodation was very good consisting of a large, clean and well equipped two story apartment/holiday home. There was an appreciated welcome gift of a fruit and cheese platter with a bottle of wine. The receptionist was friendly and obliging. There was only one person who had to do everything but was friendly and efficient.

Very nice accomodation, close to everything even not being in the middle of the town. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms were beautiful and a lovely view balcony which is a good touch.

Got lots of sun and slept well and all you need in terms of dishwasher/washing and dryer and all the samples of cleaning products that helped if you forgot something!!

Got nice and warm with the pellet fire. Only thing to critique was the pool to be cleaned but the hot tub was nice!

Lovely hotel. We had a 2 bedroom for 4 adults. 1 room locked off. Really nice decor. Absolutely clean. Good facilities with the pool. You can walk to the lake in 3 minutes, or be in town driving in 2 mins. Harish, the Hotel Manager is a consummate host. Thank you so much!

Great apartment for our family of 4. The guy who checked us in was beef nice. Lovely heating throughout which was much needed with the drop in temperatures, and the bathroom had underfloor heating too! Was great to have a full kitchen as there wasn’t much choice for eating out once we’d finished at the hot pools.
There was also a washer & dryer in the garage (with detergent) which was awesome whilst travelling with kids. Wish it was warmer so we could have used the pool but will have to visit again for that!

Booked a one bedroom apartment for a 2 night stay and because of low occupancy, we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment.

Although the second bedroom was locked off, we did appreciate the more spacious living area and kitchen.There was also a lockup garage, and washing machine/dryer in the garage.

Location is away from the village but within walking distance.

Kitchen is well equipped, and outdoor patio great for small group gatherings, comfortable bedding. The place was clean and well presented

Our apartment did not have a view to the Lake.

Reception was closed during our stay due to the quiet booking period, but easily contactable via phone. Check-in and check-out using drop-key lock system.

The barbecue is in an outdoor common area by the pool, which is in a central area in the middle of the townhouses. I’m sorry, but we did not use the barbecue while we were there.
