Stayed in the “penthouse” 2 bedroom apartment. It was large but not great - no dishwasher (which was odd), the master bedroom’s walls were so thin that the sound of traffic was like we were right on top of it and everything felt cheap. The business is apparently for sale so I am guessing that that not much is being spent on the place.

Some of the Lake Views are hidden because of buildings being built at the front.

Property is in a great location central to the lake and town. Views are there but new properties are being developed closer to the lake and will hinder the view a little.

We agree that we are in the perfect position in the centre of our village. Everything is within walking distance and the Lake mere steps away. The developement you mention only has finishing work to be completed so the views we have we will keep! We wish you safe travels.

The view that was advertised was greatly reduced by two large buildings directly in front of the motel. It was for the magnificent veiw of the lake and mountains that we booked this motel. We were most dissappointed to say the least.

Thank you for staying with us. We are pleased that Tekapo is growing and we too will be happy when the construction is complete before winter 2019 - we had advised all of our booking agencies in advance of the construction and also have had notification on our website for well over a year now. Although this progress for our wee town has hindered some of our views, we are still in a perfect central location and a full view of the lake is merely steps away. We do hope that you have enjoyed your time in the Mackenzie - it is a wonderful spot.
