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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

These apartments (we had first floor one) have outstanding views. Very close to town, The apartment we had has two bedrooms , one with ensuite, a large living area with fully-equipped kitchen, a gas fireplace as well as airconditioner. The furniture is eclectic but in a fashion that makes you feel at home. The units have garaging as well with internal access. Our host was extremely welcoming and very helpful with advice on things to do and see.

Booked a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment, and it surpassed our expectations. The apartment was roomy, very clean and perfect for what we wanted. Also very reasonably priced.
The lovely young lady welcomed us in and explained everything, advised us on different places to visit and recommended places to eat.
Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay, we would loved to have stayed longer.

This is one of the best motels I have ever stayed in. It is a 5-Star in my book!

The hostess is lovely and very helpful.

You get everything you could need.

The property is finished to a very high standard. You get a designer bath, a washing machine and dryer, dishwasher and cooking facilities.

The views over the lake are fantastic.
It takes around 10 minutes to walk into town.

For a short stay, this place is the tops!

This place has everything you would ever want! The kitchen is overstocked with every cooking need that a regular home has. It has a garage for your car, a washer & dryer in your apartment, a cute fireplace, books, King bed with ensuite, a second bedroom with 2 single beds plus another bathroom. There are added touches, like slippers on your bed, coffee, tea, salt & pepper, olive oil. It's close to the lake and in a very quiet area. Loved this place!!

A really nice apartment with spectacular view of Lake Teakpo and the stars. Very nice hosts with a book on recommended places to visit, eat at, etc and a farmlet nearby to walk to with sheep and a calf which was a highlight for our young one. Located close to everything and in walking distance so would highly recommend. Also had a garage to lock your car away for the night also.

This was a bit of splash out for us but it was worth every penny: the view, the (gas) fireplace, the service, the little nice details throughout the apartment. What a lovely stay: the views are AMAZING.
High recommend. Did not want to leave.

Not sure how you could give this anything but a 5 out of 5. Huge apartment (basically like a house). Nicely renovated interior with new kitchen and bathrooms and a large internal access garage. Heat pump and gas fireplace. Incredible views over lake Tekapo and the Southern Alps. Lovely host who was exceptionally good with our 2 year old. Couldnt have asked for better. Highly recommend.

We loved the Mackenzie Suites. Very comfortable bed, seating and a wonderful gas fireplace. Well appointed, great location. Sat for ages looking at the view, locals ducks visited. Easy check in and out, friendly managers. Easy to park. Really, all we could want, would return again. Highly recommended.

Stayed in a two bedroom ground floor apartment. The apartment was comfortable and spacious with its own garage. The fireplace is a lovely addition to the apartment. We were greeted by Polly, who just lovely and informative. Would recommend

We have the up stair unit and the view from the balcony is unbeatable. Very big apartment with complete kitchen. Apartment very clean.

The window in our bedroom is not closed when we check in and we did not realize that. When the night comes, so many flies came into the room. Make sure you close all windows before dusk.
