Alpine Lodges, hotel in Lake Tekapo

Situated in Lake Tekapo in the Canterbury region, Alpine Lodges features a patio. The property has mountain and lake views, and is 46 km from Mt. Dobson.

Fabulous location - 5 minutes drive from the town yet secluded enough to feel like you are in the wilderness. The wood fireplace was extra special and the bed had the most comfortable doona that was warm but so lightweight it made you just want to cocoon. The design of the cabin was well thought out and you wondered how they managed to place all amenities in such an organised way. Sam the manager was extra helpful and friendly . We organised a fishing tour with Tim who went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience.

    We we very disappointed with our stay and would only recommend it as a last resort. The room was clean and adequate, but was small and pokey, and the long hallways narrow. The view was partially obscured by other buildings. The hotel restaurant is closed at night, so no in house bar or food. We found an excellent restaurant in front of the lake. Overall ,overpriced and barely adequate… there must be somewhere better?

    The apartment was extremely well appointed & super comfortable. Loved the heated floor in the bathroom. So much room to move about. The manager was fantastic & so helpful. He is amazing. We would recommend Mantra Lake Tekapo to any of our family or friends passing through the region.

    I have been going there since 1987 and it has never lost its charm. The lake is a beautiful turquoise colour. Mount John is a great place to see the Southern Alps. Mount Cook is nearby. There is a ski field in winter. It is an easy drive from Queenstown or Christchurch.

    Great place to visit beautiful view.

    Great place to visit beautiful view. Colour photos turn out fantastic due to lighting, lake environment colours. Sky at night best I've seen. Rented large house for our family gathering. In advance Contacted Four Square Tekapo they offered to cook chickens, make vegetarian dish, supplied all our food. Also made salads supplied breads, deserts, drinks. We were so pleased with the service this store provided. Perfect. Would of loved to stay longer.

    Lake Tekapo is beautiful and very relaxing but only needs a couple of days to be seen thoroughly. There's a pleasant, flat walk along and above the shoreline that's not too taxing for younger children and there are trails and hot spring pools for older kids/adults. There's also mini golf or ice skating, depending on what time of the year you go. Shops are very limited and those available are overpriced - if you are staying self-catered, try to bring food with you or eat out. Thoroughly recommend 25 degree - they don't take bookings so you'll need to get there as they open (for dinner) or be prepared to wait/come back later. Another downside is the inconsiderate behaviour of some of the other tourists - if you're trying to get any decent photos of the Good Shepherd church or stars, you'll need to go very early/very late or find a secluded place for night photos. Some people seemed unaware that this is a spot for limited light so had car headlights on full whilst sitting outside the church - which made our photographers trip a bit wasted.

    Lake Tekapo is a lovely town with beautiful views of the mountains and lakes. Lots of lovely walking trails and places to explore in and around the lakes. There are great cycling trails in the area too. Mountain Cook in only a short distance away. There are hot springs and pools to visit and great places to eat at.

    Huge house with gorgeous views in a quiet neighborhood; if you have been to Lake Tekapo before, you know everything is close by! Super easy check in, and even easier check out. The fireplace was a bonus for a chilly night, although they also have heathers if that's not your thing. The place was clean and tidy, and it has absolutely everything you could possibly need. 10/10, we would definitely stay again, thanks team!

    Fantastic views looking across the ranges and Lake Tekapo, we saw the sunrise and spectacular sunset. The skylight in the room would be a plus on starry nights. Unfortunately it was full moon when we were there, so missed out on this great feature. The hotel was brand new with luxurious fittings. Very clean, tastefully decorated, host was very friendly and made sure we were comfortable with our unit.

    Clean, quiet, private. Shared restroom(s) and shower(s) were steps from our cabin. They were very clean. Lake Tekapo is just across the road from the lodge. The views were amazing. Nearby is the iconic Good Shepherd church. Thy skies were partly cloudy the night we were there; however, views of the night sky were awe inspiring. Sunrise on the lake was breathtaking.

    This is a re-furbished house with a spectacular view of Lake Tekapo - it was furnished and decorated nicely throughout. Bathrooms and kitchen look newly done up and the main bathroom had a nice new bathtub. There is a big balcony that can be accessed from lounge and master bedroom. House is located in a residential area near town center.

    Lake Tekapo, and the Lakes Holiday Park are stunning. The Park is well laid out, friendly service and in a great location. The cabin we stayed in was excellent, very comfy and warm, and just a few steps down to the lake. Even better to sit outside at the outdoor table to enjoy the evening and view the full moon.
