Lovely view of the lake and the Church of Good Shepherd. The motel is right in the village centre so it was quite busy in the tavern next door or around the lake during the day. Quiet at night though. Room was comfortable, bathroom could have done with a bit more hanging or bench space but not a big deal.

I stayed here over a year ago and was excited to return. I love Lake Tekapo, and this is the perfect base to enjoy it from. The jetted tub is fantastic, the views are great, the bed is comfy, and there's a fridge for food & bev. The staff is always kind and helpful (thanks for the restaurant recommendations!

We stayed just one night at this central Tekapo motel. Comfortable and quiet with a view of the lake from the lounge in the family upstairs unit.Higher priced than comparable motels in less touristy areas but suited us for a short stay.

Stayed here in early March. Very clean and comfortable. Great view of the lake. On main strip of shops and restaurants. Just stayed the one night with the intention of of going on Earth and Sky tour but was rained off. Went to the hot pools great in rain and 8 Celsius outsider. Changing rooms could be a lot cleaner....

I would love to give this place a good review because the penthouse room is huge, great for a family and spotlessly clean. But I can't because it's essentially an apartment on a highway. If anyone has any issues with noise they won't sleep a wink as both bedrooms face onto the busy road and are above a car park...

Most people are probably only stopping for the night here. Well equipped family unit - if not a little pokey but okay for the night. Beds warm and comfy, tiny TV with sky and average picture. The noise of people on landing and stairs, and next door in back yard of shops was a not very limited by the thin...

The hotel is located next to the lake. Walking to the Church is about 10-15 mins only. There are some restaurants near by. The staff are excellent. No regret at all. For sure will be back to this hotel once again.

We stayed in an upstairs studio which had great views of the lake. The room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The motel is located on the lake, only a 10 minute walk to the Church of the Good Shepard, and convenient to all the shops and restaurants in town.

Our room was on the ground floor and had a bedroom with a double bed, another bedroom with a single bed and a TV, dining/kitchen area and a bathroom. The cooking amenities provided were very adequate and they provided a big dustbin which was very useful. The location was right in the middle of town and walking distance to everything,...

My husband, 4 kids and I stayed here in January for our 20th anniversary. We had eloped and were married in the Church of the Good Shepherd. We had stayed at this motel on the night of our wedding. This time round Wayne and Debbie put us up in 'The Penthouse' which was just incredible. We had been travelling around...
