Marg and I stayed here for one night. We were upgraded when we arrived because this is the slow season. We were given a room with a view of Lake Tekapo. Great. The room was comfortable, good bed and warm. Shower good. The only black mark was the milk in the fridge. The hotel had that horrid longlife milk in tiny containers. YUK! We had tp buy milk from the service station across the road from the hotel. We enjoyed our stay at The Godley Hotel and will visit again.
