We arrived in Lake Tekapo at about 9pm without making any prior reservations. Most of the other hostels and hotels were fully booked and we were lucky to chance upon the Chalet Boutique Motel. The friendly and helpful owner, a Swiss lady, offered us (family of 3) a cottage with an amazing view of the lake. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable.
The location was just perfect, being in a quiet part of the lake, yet within 1 minute on foot to the Good Shepard Church. The unobstructed view of Lake Tekapo just filled us with awe. We were sad that we only spent less than 12 hours in the cottage. We wished we could stay another day but had to drive up to Chirstchurch.
We will definitely stay in the same property if we come back to Lake Tekapo again. Definitely one of the best.
