Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Great location in Tekapo, while rooms are pretty small if booking an hotel room they are fine for just an single night. Main would wish this resort had some additional faculties e.g. an spa pools, as there isn't much todo locally after dark. One thing would if check-in could maybe provide the customer will little less information at check-in. Did feel an bit over whelming to be verbally giving so much information, and have it highlighted on the paper right in front of you. Staff maybe need to learn to run the customer more e.g. its really the last thing you want to do after an 3hour drive.
