A nice resort next to beautiful Lake Tekapo. The room was great and the staff friendly and helpful. In particular, there was one person - name Gail (was I think was the duty manager) who was proactive when we had something not work right and personally and quickly oversaw the resolution of that issue. Wonderful service.

Very disappointed in the room, room was quite a small box, it was hard to walk around the bed. One window that looked at a concrete wall. I was expecting some sort of a view.. if the wall was not there we would of been able to see the duck pond. Staff were great, we were given a voucher for one free breakfast on check in. The rest of the resort was amazing we were just a little bit guttered about our room
