“A touch of class”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2011

We struck lucky when we arrived late at the tiny strip of waterside shops, motels and restaurants that calls itself Lake Tekapo town centre. Everything was booked so we ventured across to the residential area across the main highway to find Glacier Rock. It's a little more expensive than you would expect for a B&B but well worth it. Two beautifully furnished rooms with ensuite bathroom and large comfy beds. Chris gives you a warm and friendly welcome but gives you the space you would enjoy in a bigger hotel. We enjoyed her healthy breakfast of home made breads and yoghurts. Rooms have their own access so no ringing bells when you get back from dinner. Staying here was a real treat.

Chris was very welcoming and had upgraded us to a bigger room with its own balcony and entry. The view from the breakfast room was classic picture postcard, looking over Lake Tekapo. Chris was very helpful with naming eating places and things to do around the town. Colin has some of his art work displayed in the rooms, and both hosts were friendly and helpful. The room itself had tea and coffee making facilities, en suite and walk in robe. The location of the B&B is near to all facilites and main road and could be within walking distance of the town if you did not have a hire car. Certainly one to go back to.

The place is wonderfull, the landscape from the house is one of the best I have ever seen. It is in a very quiet place, very near from the village center. The room is big, the bed very comfortable.The owners are very nice and the breakfast is.... the best. The views to the Lake Tekapo from the breakfast room have no price.

the Air Safari from lake Tekapo was the highight of our trip, flying over Pukaki, Tekapo, Mount Cook, Franz Joseph and Fox Glacier. On the day of departure Chris gave us 2 deicious bit of cake for our morning tea. Great place to stay to stroll across this magnificient lake Tekapo!

Beautiful rooms with a lovely open-air deck in which to enjoy a drink on a clear night. The owners are fantastic artists, and the breakfast was tremendous.

Would highly recommend staying a night here!

Friendly and informative hosts were a great plus as were the views from the breakfast room and the deck.I have however rated it low on value as to me it did not deliver the experience I was expecting in relation to the high tarrif charged. The "king room" had the advantage of leading onto the deck but is quite a small room with what seemed to be a queen sized bed. The ensuite does not have a window and the water from the shower leaked around to form a pool around the toilet. Only basic toiletries are supplied of the kind found in a cheap motel.Breakfast was pleasant but simple, it could have been enhanced with some homemade jams or more seasonal fruit perhaps. It is the small extra touches that make a place memorable and invite repeat visits. Compared to other places we stayed at in NZwe felt that the experience providedwas a little too basic to command the price being charged. So I recommend this place but with reservations.

Lovely couple, lovely place and fantastic breakfast - especially the home baked bread! A little on the expensive side I felt, but we knew this in advance, so you cannot blame the B&B for it.
Nothing much to do in the area, except go to the observatory for a gorgwous view of the plains. mountains and lake Tekapo - very nice!
Internet did not function, but it would be fixed we were told.
