Drove to lake tekapo, New Zealand to visit the local observatory and planned on sleeping in my car for the night,(roughing it). Found this lovely motel, overlooking the lake. They had one room left for a solo traveller so, I took it, thinking, oh well, it's got be more comfortable than the car and being a studio, didn't expect much? Well!! The room was as comfortable and well equipped as any 4/5star hotel I had stayed in, it was fabulously comfortable, with every amenity, drinks fridge, snacks and free wifi!!!!! Flat screen tv, direct dial telephone, local area information packs, snazzy bedside lamps and a fantastic en-suite. I had the best nights sleep I've had in some time, the bed was very, very, comfortable!!
The motel was very central to bars and eateries, literally seconds away, it was fantastic! The staff member/manager was lovely and very helpful. The view was to die for, worth the price of the room alone and with so many activities available, including, the mt John observatory for the scientifically minded, you are spoilt for choice!
The location is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
If you ever go to lake tekapo, this is the one, I can't praise it enough!More
