Great location and staff but expensive in comparison to what we have paid for higher quality hotels with more amenities throughout NZ. The bins under the stairs to reach your room was a little rough on one's nostrils. However we had a great time as the location and the view were both amazing and the staff lovely and helpful.

Pity Tekapo is building a "star dome" in the middle of the lake front and it's construction site is not nice to look at. I do hope when finished it will be more slightly.

Thank you for staying with us. We are pleased that Tekapo is growing and we too will be happy when the construction is complete which will be very soon. Although it has blocked some of our views, we are still in a perfect central location.

Unfortunately new construction closer to the lake completely obstructed our so called lake view room. Very disappointed that no compensation was offered as we payed for a view of the lake

Thank you for your review. Although there is new development lakeside, all of our rooms still have partial lakeview. We are excited about the growth of our town. Our motel still offers the best central location, quality and service. Our prices are not driven by the view. We hope that you did enjoy your stay.

View from accomodation

Location: Flights over the mountains. Visit to St John's Observatory. Both weather dependent.
Peaceful and relaxing view of mountains was just what I wanted.
