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.

Hubby and I stayed for two nights on the top floor which has the balcony & better view. The bottoms floor has the same style/layout but has the bathtub. The apartment modern, very clean and comfortable. Kitchen had all the utensils/pots/pans etc, plus laundry/dryer to if you need it. Reception was super friendly and made us feel comfortable. The apartment is located amongst newly built subdivisions and other accommodations but it's very quiet. Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

We had apartment number 4. We were disappointed at first with the downstairs apartment as the view was restricted by the house across the road. Photos online indicate unobstructed views but these are from upstairs apartments only - request one of these at the time of booking.

The apartment was spotlessly clean, large and well designed. The build is a quality build with lovely finishing touches. The kitchen is spacious with items you need to cook and stay in for the evening. My only suggestion would be to leave more supplies for longer stays please eg. Dishwashing liquid, hot chocolate/coffee as we were a 5 person family. It would also be helpful to have a bench cleaner spray or wipes and a clothes airer to dry clothes without a dryer.

The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms great and the toiletries were lovely. Location is a 20 minute walk from town (with kids) or a short drive less than 5 mins. We really enjoyed our stay and could relax in comfort with plenty of space. Aside from the few things mentioned above it’s a really lovely apartment we would happily return to.

We stayed 5 nights at the Tekapo Luxury Apartments in a two bedroom upstairs apartment. The apartment was roomy and comfortable with full kitchen facilities, sky TV in the lounge and TV in the main bedroom. Facilities also include full laundry.
The apartment was clean and warm and extremely well fitted out. We will definitely stay there again

“Mr Cage was a very friendly and warm host. He was there to receive us and welcome us. The facilities were a perfect and large two bedroom apartment . The heat pump was turned on ready for us as well as the electric heated mattress .which were both very welcome given it was a little cold that evening in Tekapo just a little better than minus 1 deg as Mr Cage explained! The hosts helped with tips on sightseeing and great dinner recommendation at the award winning McKenzie restaurant . The observatory tour was amazing,just out of this world as was viewing the night sky right out the back of the property.
Liked the ability to park our car outside the entrance to our suite which allowed easy unloading and loading of baggage.
In hindsight we wish we could have stayed 3 nights as there was so much to do and see !

Tekapo Luxury Apartments is 5*+. Spacious and well-appointed apartment, comfortable bed, quality linens, Skytv, fully equipped kitchen with full size fridge-freezer and laundry was welcome after a few days travelling. We arrived for one night, but stayed longer. We will definitely recommend and stay again, James is the consummate host and his recommendations for restaurants and local short drives and walks - perfect.

Really nice apartment. Good view of Tekapo but that will disappear once the empty section builds. Would highly recommend staying upstairs for a glimpse otherwise you would be looking at the carpark. Apparently the rooms downstairs have baths - I would rather have the view. The quality was pretty good but I'm not sure it was luxury. Feel it's a bit tight to only give one plunger of coffee for two nights, the same with one body wash. No towel changes or room service but maybe it's available if you ask. Would stay here again.

Thanks so much James for a wonderful stay.
Beautiful rooms, super clean and tidy.
Very modern and everything you need on your holiday.
So warm, and the carpet - luxury.
James’ recommendation to food places were spot on and the tips on what to go see and do were so appreciated so thank you so much.
We will come back with our kids and would recommend it to everyone to stay at.

These apartments are beautiful, the location is brilliant, within walking distance to everything with a lovely view. It was absolutely spotless & bigger than expected.

I LOVED the bath so much that I wanted to strap it to the roof and take it home. The robes are a lovely touch and definitely one of the comfiest beds I’ve slept in (lovely pillows)

Had everything you needed milk, toiletries, nice towels, info provided on the area and James is so lovely! Had the pleasure of chatting to him before we left :) highly recommend and we will be back!!

We had Apartment #2. It was spacious, modern and nearly brand new. The owner Ray and property manager Tiff were all super friendly and helpful in providing useful travel information for the area. They explained that the property is only 2 years old. No wonder why it looks so fresh and clean. Next time, we will make sure we stay at least 2-3 days at Tekapo Luxury Apartments to explore the area in detail.

Thank you Ray and Tiff!

My husband and I loved our stay in the upstairs apartment number 5 . The accommodation was delightful and a stand out during our South Island travels. The location in the elevated new estate and the apartment felt new and spotless . The view over the lake was beautiful and every comfort was available.
