Disappointing

2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Apr 2024via mobile
We had a powered site and because we have a wee dog, we’re placed up top away from main camp. All fine. Amenities were fine also. Wifi totally useless biggest gripe would be awful muddy sites virtually no gravel and we were constantly stepping onto mud. This could do easily be remedied. We paid $126 for two nights bQuite excessive considering what we paid in Queenstown at a new campground.
Date of stay: April 2024
Room Tip: Avoid top sites tho you have no option if you have a pooch.
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Hi Linda
Thank you for your review and feedback. I do sincerely apologise for the sites up in the dog freindly area. Due to an extremely dry summer and then some heavy rainfall, they did become very muddy. I hope you still enjoyed your time in Tekapo and hope you may return someday after we have made some planned improvements.
Cheers
Lydia

V average facilities - the camp sites for motor homes are generally a long way from the facilities ( we did ask to be as close as possible) - the wifi is hardly useable from a lot of the sites and facilities not even close to say Queenstown and Lake Edge is more expensive. Have a look round Tekapo during the day and move on is my recommendation - not good value at all

Hi there
I am sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. We do have sites that are close to facilities that get rebooked quickly, so I do apologise if these were not available when you booked. We are in the process of improving our WiFi services, we hope to find a solution to this soon. We are also adding in a new amenities block this year.
Cheers
Lydia

We stayed in the 6 bed dorm. My expectations were pretty low, but we were blown away. It was clean. Loved having the convince of an ensuite with shower. Beds were comfortable. There was a large couch too. Very happy. Look forward to staying again. Thanks!

Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed your stay at Lakes Edge Lodge. Our female 6 bed dorm does have the added comfort of an ensuite bathroom, and just a few metres away you will find the communal lounge and kitchen!
Hope you had a chance to see all that Tekapo has to offer too.

Last site on our 6 week trip, by far the best. Generous sized sites, lots with a beautiful view. Amenities were immaculate, modern and well equipped. Reception staff were so helpful too. Couldn't not fault this place, massively recommend.
If we were to return or offer advice, stay here and day trip to Mount Cook.

Such a view! Campsite was pretty busy, some of the young uns need to learn how to clean a communal kitchen after you use it. The camp kittens were cute (hope they're looked after and spayed!?!). Kids loved them. Playground was ok, tramps need a few repairs. Friendly vibe.

Hi Dale

Thank you for your review! Agree not everyone is as clean as we would hope them to be in the communal kitchens - but most people are considerate. The kittens are all wild cats so not looked after by us, but you do normally see a few around the camp at this time of year!
We will look at the issues re the trampoline ASAP, thanks for letting us know. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your South Island Trip.
Cheers
Lydia

Our most favorite accommodation during out 2 weeks south island roadtrip.
Stayed in the Ensuite Cabin for 3 nights and can't wait to go back again.
The view was breathtaking. Cabin was just in front of the shared kitchen and laundry room. Cabin was equipped with cooking utensils, so we won't need to share. Nice balcony where you can sit to drink coffee whilst taking in the view.
Location is less than 5 minutes drive to Tekapo town and Tekapo Hot Springs.

Hi Lydia
Wow, thank you so much, thrilled to hear that we were your favourite spot during your South Island Trip. Our ensuite cabins have amazing views of the Lake - we may be biased but think it is the best location in town! We hope you had a great rest of your holiday!
