Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a South Island road trip. As the property only has two rooms in a hosted BnB arrangement, the service was impeccable and it was great to spend time talking with the hosts Kevin and Jenny. The room itself is beautifully appointed and an excellent bathroom. Kevin and Jenny make the most amazing breakfast too!

Lake Tekapo is the beautiful backdrop to Alpine Suites where Kevin and Jenny are THE most accomodating hosts. The whole place is tip top and you just wait for your breakfast choice-home made muesli/granola and a full English or shakshuka will more than set you up for the day. Thank you

We have stayed at some fantastic B&Bs in our near 4 weeks in New Zealand and Alpine Suites was the cherry on cake, largely due to the excellent, caring attitude and hospitality shown by Kevin and Jen. Not only that, the rooms were spacious and confortable, breakfast was superb and the beer and wine offered in the lounge (with a fabulous view of the lake) was a lovely touch. Enjoyed doing some start-gazing from the garden as well. Highly recommended!

We arrived here on our tour of New Zealand having already been wowed by the country and it’s people. Staying with Kevin and Jen did not disappoint. We had a truly wonderful time in this truly fabulous accommodation. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was so thoughtfully organised ... we loved the lovely fluffy bathrobes. The breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day. Three days was not long enough. We will recommend this place to friends in the UK and our family in New Zealand. Thank you so much Kevin and Jen ... we loved Lake Tekapo and Alpine Suites.

Kevin and Jenny are amazing and friendly hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are finished to a very high standard and the breakfast is to die for. Nightly wine in the lounge is a lovely experience and their knowledge of where to go and what to eat made our stay so pleasurable. We would highly recommend this home from home

This is such a great place to stay when visiting stunning Lake Tekapo. A beautiful bedroom, cozy and comfortable, with fab toiletries. The guest lounge is relaxing and stocked with great NZ wines. The view of the stars at night was great from the garden. Kevin and Jenny are such great hosts - so friendly with loads of great tips for making the most of our trip. I can't recommend Alpine Suites enough - it's like staying with friends

Warm, friendly welcome from the owners. Very large, comfortable room with it's own private, outdoor seating area looking towards the lake. A private sitting room for the two guest rooms which includes tea making, biscuits and wine. Parking is off road or on road. It's a short walk to the lake and in to town or a short drive. Lovely breakfast. Wish we could have stayed more than 1 night.

so if Lake Tekapo is a jewel in the heart of the South Island of New Zealand , then it follows that our accomodation at Alpine Suites was of diamond quality . This place , and our hosts who made us feel completely at home and relaxed , is probably the most comfortable and well catered place we have ever stayed at . I cannot complement them highly enough on their attention to detail , the cleanliness and friendliness of our hosts .

What a wonderful place to stay. We were so very sad to leave. Kevin and Jen are the perfect hosts. When I asked if they could recommend a fly fishing guide for my husband Kevin said he loved fishing and he would take him out. They had a ball, despite not catching a thing. They laughed, Kevin had a wee camping stove and cooked whitebait patties and they had a beer. They came back very late and very happy. We feel as if we have made friends for life here and have already started planning our next trip.

There are 35 reviews on TA about this property and all have given it Five stars. We recently stayed here for 2 nights and completely agree. Alpine Suites is outstanding in every way. Its a 2 min drive from Tekapo town centre. Its like a hybrid between a pure B&B and an upscale hotel, with the guests getting the best of both worlds. I was surprised to know that the hosts have no formal training in the hospitality industry because everything that they do is with such great panache. Kevin is also a great photographer as every guest will discover. The setup is like 2 private rooms with en-suite bathrooms and a shared lounge (shared only with other guests) with great views of the lake & mountains. All amenities provided including a complimentary mini bar in the lounge. Both rooms identical in every way. As most reviewers have commented the breakfast is a highlight with great presentation, choices of cooked items and the “worlds best hash browns” !! One suggestion here - if you find the price a little high, still go for it. Save that $100 odd in your other NZ trip accommodation, if you must. You won’t regret it at all and this stay will be the most memorable stay of your NZ holiday. Trust me!!
