The hotel is straight across road from supermarket and the main town centre. Easy walk to local attractions and lake shore. A 3min drive to hot pools or an easy cycle if you have a bike. We had a small room at a very affordable price but there is quite a chouce of room ootions to book.

Peppers is located in the perfect spot to all Tekapo attractions. Walking distance to the cafes & restaurants. Short walk/drive to the hotsprings and Mount John Hill. The staff were amazing, and the trout feeding was a fun activity while enjoying a drink outside. Defo making this a constant stop over destination to Queenstown/Chch.
