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.

This B&B is great! Rooms are very clean. Bed was comfortable. View was great. The main lounge is comfortable and has plenty of seating and again, the view. Breakfast was ordered the night before and quite good. Parking was on site and included with stay. Easy walk into town. Location was great. Ann Maree was a consummate host and made us feel very welcome. She was helpful with advice regarding walks and tours in the area. Highly recommend this B&B!

Stayed here during our trip to New Zealand. This is an excellent b and b located above Tekapo with a superb view of the lake. The room was extremely comfortable offering all the facilities you could want. Breakfast was cooked to order and offered gluten free options. Our hosts Ann Maree and Sab were delightful ensuring we had all we required and giving us advice on what there was to do in the area. Definitely one of the best b and bs we have stayed at and highly recommend

Kiwis are well known for their friendliness and Ann Maree and Sab are no exception. This lovely couple were so hospitable, so helpful and have a great sense of humour. Ranginui is very well presented, overlooks the lake and only a couple of minutes from the town. We enjoyed our cooked breakfasts and were made to feel “ at home”, when chatting with them about their life. Genuinely sad to leave

This B&B was fabulous. We stayed for two nights to explore the Lake Tekapo area. Our room was large, beautifully appointed and super clean. We had a private balcony, tea and coffee (fresh coffee!) making facilities and a large bathroom too. Our host, Ann-Maree, welcomed us upon arrival, and was so friendly and helpful. She had made a dinner reservation that evening for us at a local restaurant but also offered to cancel if it didn’t suit. It did - and we really enjoyed our evening. She also suggested a trail to walk in the Mount Cook National park the next day, which we did and it was just stunning. Her local knowledge and advice meant we had the best of stays. The breakfast in the morning was excellent too. Home made muesli, bread. Fresh fruit. Cooked eggs, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, the full works. And of course….more (fresh) coffee! I can’t recommend this gem highly enough. Thank you Ann-Maree x

This might be the first time I’ve stayed in a purpose-built BnB. Our hosts, Ann-Maree and Sab, bought a lot on a hillside with a view of Lake Tekapo, and then built a home with a wing that contains three guest rooms. My room was simple but comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities, a balcony, a well-appointed bathroom, and a comfortable bed. Guests have access to a living/dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows, comfortable couches, and a picnic-style breakfast table. This design gives both guests and hosts privacy. Yet when relaxing in the living room, Anne-Maree and Sab are always happy to chat with guests and provide information about the area. Breakfast is plentiful. Guests order hot items the night before. When morning comes we were treated first with juice and a hot beverage followed by toast, eggs, bacon, or whatever we ordered. Cold items, like cereal, are also available. Restaurants are a short walk to town, about 15 minutes, using a trail that starts at the BnB. Alternatively, you can drive, but I enjoyed walking.

Ranginui at Lake Tekapo is amazing. We only stayed one night on our way back to Christchurch airport at the end of our holiday. We so wished we had more time to spend here and will definitely be back when we are able to return to New Zealand. We were welcomed by Sab (who was a fantastic host while Ann-Maree was away) and shown to a fabulous stylish room, with very comfy bed and spectacular views across the lake and mountains. You also get this view in the breakfast room/lounge. The breakfast was lovely with homemade yoghurt and granola and very tasty cooked option. Thank you Sab. Helen & Steve from the UK

We only stayed for one night and had to leave quite early the following morning but had a very memorable stay. Lovely setting and views. Room was fantastic as was the bed. Best nights sleep I had in NZ. Breakfast was great. Ann-Maree was a wonderful host who cooked a mean breakfast! Highly recommend staying here.
