12 Sealy Street, 7945 Lake Tekapo, New Zealand – Show map
Lake Tekapo Cottages are situated about 2 minutes walk from the Church of the Good Shepherd near the lake shore, and about 3-4 minutes walk to the village shops. They have close mountain views and are very private, sheltered, and quiet. We are lucky to be surrounded by older trees, some of them, close by, are more than 100 years old, probably the oldest trees in Tekapo and the Mckenzie Basin.

Loved the quaintness and the peacefulness. The views were terrific and free bikes a HIT! The check in gentleman was awesome too with his recommendations!

Plates and dishes had been put away full of water! Hot tub had been re-filled and wasn't warm enough to use (it had snowed and was freezing - would've been lovely). We were sent on our way from office without key to access the house which was some distance away. A quick phone call and the managers bought key over. House was nothing like picture on this website.
We booked Tekapo Cottages thinking we were staying by the lake shore however this is only the office. Our house was up the hill and in a completely different area. Despite this it was lovely and warm with all the things we needed for a comfy stay.

The location and setting

- The cooking utensils are not very clean. - The footpath to the apartment is not paved requiring much effort to move suitcases. - There has been communication problem between booking.com and the apartment on the price. Luckily the problem gets sorted finally after explanation.
- The apartment is spacious and located close to Church of Good Shepard which is excellent for star glazing. - The landlord is nice to give us a free ride to the bus station

Extremely disappointed with the ridiculously high price particularly when compared to other accommodation we have stayed in across the South Island. The bedrooms had no cupboards or draws for storage. There were dirty marks and dead bugs on the walls and ceilings. The painting hadn't been finished on the inside on the doors or outside. The toilet roll holder was coming out of the wall in one of the bathrooms. The view was of a garden in desperate need of attention looking out to a field with construction materials in it. When we approached the manager about the issues we had he said we could have got a better price directly but couldn't do anything and that I needed to discuss the issues with Booking.com.
The free Wi-Fi was great as was the friendly staff.

One of the gas hobs wasn't working and there was no oven.
Lovely self-catered rooms. View across to the mountains. Surrounded by greenery, perfect for children. 5 minutes walk from Tekapo 'town centre' and also The Church of the Good Shepherd.

Situated closed to the to the Lake Tekapo and Church of the Good Shepherd (5 min walking distance). The studio was spacious, comfy and clean. There was a living area with kitchen, sleeping area, bathroom and a spacious private terrace. The kitchen was well-equipped. There is free wifi and free parking spot available. We had a nice stay!

In general we found standards of hotels & restaurants around Tekapo quite poor compared to other NZ places we have been. No breakfast available more like a self contained "camping" cabin.
Compared to lodges around it is similar standards. The lake is beautiful and the hotel is next to the church for some less crowded time for yourself. Definitely go to the observatory to take on the view.

The small cottage is cute but not for an extended stay. Need more room for clothes and cases. Table rather than coffee table more useful.
Quiet location, owner helpful.

Nothing that comes to mind.

The cold tub faucet came out when turned on. It spayed cold water all the way to the ceiling. However, when we called, the owner came in immediately to stop the problem.
Like the privacy of our own holiday home. The spa saved us money as there was no need to visit the hot springs which would have cost us $210 for our family of 6.
