Lake Tekapo - amazing

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Dec 2019
so if Lake Tekapo is a jewel in the heart of the South Island of New Zealand , then it follows that our accomodation at Alpine Suites was of diamond quality . This place , and our hosts who made us feel completely at home and relaxed , is probably the most comfortable and well catered place we have ever stayed at . I cannot complement them highly enough on their attention to detail , the cleanliness and friendliness of our hosts .

What a wonderful place to stay. We were so very sad to leave. Kevin and Jen are the perfect hosts. When I asked if they could recommend a fly fishing guide for my husband Kevin said he loved fishing and he would take him out. They had a ball, despite not catching a thing. They laughed, Kevin had a wee camping stove and cooked whitebait patties and they had a beer. They came back very late and very happy. We feel as if we have made friends for life here and have already started planning our next trip.

There are 35 reviews on TA about this property and all have given it Five stars. We recently stayed here for 2 nights and completely agree. Alpine Suites is outstanding in every way. Its a 2 min drive from Tekapo town centre.

Its like a hybrid between a pure B&B and an upscale hotel, with the guests getting the best of both worlds.

I was surprised to know that the hosts have no formal training in the hospitality industry because everything that they do is with such great panache. Kevin is also a great photographer as every guest will discover.

The setup is like 2 private rooms with en-suite bathrooms and a shared lounge (shared only with other guests) with great views of the lake & mountains. All amenities provided including a complimentary mini bar in the lounge. Both rooms identical in every way.

As most reviewers have commented the breakfast is a highlight with great presentation, choices of cooked items and the “worlds best hash browns” !!

One suggestion here - if you find the price a little high, still go for it. Save that $100 odd in your other NZ trip accommodation, if you must. You won’t regret it at all and this stay will be the most memorable stay of your NZ holiday. Trust me!!

We spent a couple of nights in this fabulous B&B. The host are exceptional in their welcome and we were delighted to have such excellent recommendations of walks, visits and places to eat. The breakfasts are some of the best we’ve had, the bed comfy and the room very quiet. The lounge, with views over the lake, is a lovely place to relax with a glass of wine. Kevin and Jen have clearly put a lot of thought and effort into providing the best experience for their guests and appear to love doing so.

We ended up staying here for two nights by chance - our travel agent had originally planned for us to stay on Lake Pukaki, but when it was fully booked had booked us here in Tekapo instead. We’re so glad that they did.

We loved our stay both at the Alpine Suites and in Tekapo! The rooms are all lovely and v.modern and well equipped with everything you could need. The shower was one of the best we’ve ever used (a small thing but having stayed in hundreds of hotels we still both commented to one another on how fab it was).

The main thing though, is Kevin and Jenny. Such warm charming hosts who can not do enough for you. Kevin’s breakfasts were delicious too! Thank you both!

Tekapo is a wonderful spot and is definitely worth a stay - simply beautiful and we really hope to be back one day!

We stayed for one night as part of our trip around the South Island. The property is perfect, we wished we had stayed for an extra night. Lovely to have a chat, nibbles and wine before we headed out to dinner and the complimentary wine was welcome on our return. Great advice on our route for the next day and some truly excellent photography from Kevin. And yes his breakfast potato cakes a world class.
We were blessed with wonderful blue skies (but clouds formed later in the evening so no star gazing).

Hopefully Kevin will approve of my picture from the Observatory road!
