“Beautiful view & welcoming hosts”
Reviewed 14 November 2012

We stayed here the night before our wedding and couldn't have picked a better place to start our special day. We woke up to delicious homemade bread, which we ate whilst enjoying fantastic views over Lake Tekapo. Our hosts Chris and Colin were very warm and friendly and just helped to make it a lovely morning, which meant a lot as we were there without our families. The room itself (we stayed in the one with a private deck) was really spacious and nicely decorated.

We stayed here for one night during our recent holiday to New Zealand. Fantastic views of the township and lake and a very modern new stone home which was very clean. Lovely couple and very helpful.

We stayed here for one night, en route to the south of South Island. We arrived late after a long drive from Christchurch, but you wouldn't have known from the warm welcome we got from Chris. The room was good, the bathroom too, and the view (this was from the room with the deck) was outstanding: out over Lake Tekapo and the surrounding mountains.
You'll need a car here: it's a good mile into town for dinner. Breakfast was continental, with delicious home-baked bread, and at a time that suited us. My only quibble is that it was a bit (I mean a bit, not a lot) on the pricy side. We'd happily stay there again; it really is very good

You are guaranteed a wonderful welcome. Excellent continental breakfast, delicious fruit and jams. Room was one of the smallest that we had, but was only there one night so not an issue.
Uphill walk from the centre of town, so a car is useful but that is usual anyway.

Mount John and the views were recommended and gave us great views and photo opportunities. The Church of the Good Shepherd is nearby and a must to see.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time!

Although we were just stopping for one night we were very glad that we chose to stay at the Glacier Rock B and B. The views from the room, sundeck and breakfast room were amazing and the breakfast was delicious. Nothing better than waking up to the smell of freshly baked bread! Chris was an excellent hostess and gave us great advice about the local restaurants (we thoroughly recommend Mackenzies). With our own separate access to the bedroom we felt we could come and go easily without disturbing our hosts and Chris gave us plenty of space whilst being available if needed. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this B and B to anyone.

Room Tip: Although the Kikorangi room is more expensive it has fantastic views!

Not really much to add! Friendly and hospitable, breakfasts were excellent, and Chris gave me lots of advice about where to go and what to see. I'll definitely go back there when I return to New Zealand.

The view from our room is simply breath taking. Lying on the comfortable king bed looking down the hill towards the turquoise water of lake tekapo with the high mountains in the background is perfect. The room itself is beautifully designed and decorated. Chris and Colin made sure we (a couple with 18 months baby) have a very comfortable stay and go out of their way to accomodate unusual request (thanks for that canon charger!).
