We had an excellent stay for 2 nights at Ranginui B&B. Location was great, a beautiful 25min walk into town or a short 5min drive. Incredible views across the the lakes and mountains. The rooms were beautiful and unique but tastefully decorated, comfy bed, large designer bathroom & private balcony. Ann-Maree was a friendly welcoming and knowledgable host. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here & everything Lake Tekapo has to offer.

We booked 1 night on our travels and then stayed for 2 as this is such a fabulous B&B with outstanding hosts and with stunning views of Lake Tekapo and the region is so beautiful. Our visit was during the wild Lupin season making the areas natural beauty even more spectacular. Ranginui is a really lovely property with rooms which are appointed to a very high standard and are so comfortable. We particularly loved the stylish decor, furnishings and very comfortable bed. The bathroom too is beautifully appointed. Nothing is too much trouble for Ann-Marie and she goes the extra mile to ensure your stay is perfect. She is also a very warm, friendly and welcoming host. Breakfast was of a high standard and we especially loved the home made yogurt and granola. The cooked breakfast was also delicious too. The star gazing from our room balcony was amazing and the property is in a peaceful location a stones throw from the village centre and Lake. We will definitely be back again when we revisit the region and being dog lovers it will be nice to see the lovely dogs again too.

A warm welcome, stunning location, every amenity you can dream of and more, incredibly comfortable bed, large balcony, wonderful breakfast . Ideally situated for gorgeous views but only minutes away from a nearby reserve offering 360 degree views and a perfect site for star gazing. Cannot recommend highly enough. Brilliant

We had a fabulous night at Ranginui B&B. Ann-Marie was so lovely and friendly and made us feel so welcome. The room and guest area had the most stunning views of Lake Tekapo and the snow-capped mountains. Breakfast was delicious with homemade muesli and full cooked breakfast. We would have stayed longer if we had the time but we're travelling for work. Would highly recommend at least 2 nights.
