Friendly check in staff. Great view of mountains, short walk into town and church. Very clean but beds were a little soft. However, overall great stay.

Great spot and very central! Pictures indicated a wood burner in the property which there was but not in use which was a shame and one of the reasons we booked

What a beautiful property in a stunning location. Very close to some of the main attractions of Lake Tekapo. Nice, clean cottage with excellent heating. We had a very pleasant stay here and would definitely recommend if you're planning a trip to the area.

location close to town but secluded with bush surrounding was good , the air conditioning a bit noisy and could have used info on operation of tv and a bit more info on things in tekapo in room folder. Excellent shower, compfortable sofa but we did find bed uncomfortable for any length of time and woke with sore backs

Good location. House was clean on the inside but outside untidy and neglected looking. It was adequate accommodation but certainly not worth what we had to pay for it. Interior was clean and reasonably well equipped in the kitchen. There was no iron and several lights not working etc. Just a bit ordinary and not what we were expecting from the photos on Wotif

We stayed at the little birch. Best experience ever. Very modern, clean & amazing facilities. This place was even modern than some of the big city hotels. Its 2 minutes walk from the beautiful lake.
