Lake Tekapo Accommodation

Unlike the glitzy Queenstown and Wanaka, Tekapo only has a very small range of upmarket properties. Much of the Lake Tekapo accommodation is more basic and very well suited to those looking for an economical holiday. 

Lake Tekapo Hotels

There are only a few Lake Tekapo hotels/motels.

The Peppers Bluewater Resort is a standout for providing upmarket Lake Tekapo accommodation. This modern resort is centrally located in Tekapo and has hotel rooms, and one, two and three bedroom villas/apartments that have impressive lake or mountain views. The apartments are self-contained so you can self-cater, or the resort has a lovely restaurant.

The Godley Hotel is well located in the main strip of the village/town. The property has the facilities of a hotel, although the rooms are more geared towards the style of a motel. The décor of the rooms is somewhat dated, especially in the budget rooms, but their take on it is, who is going to be looking at the décor when there are great lake and mountain views?! The hotel rooms come in various configurations including family rooms and studio units.

Lake Tekapo Scenic Resort is also well located and more like a motel than a hotel. Rooms range from a studio room up to a penthouse suite that can sleep 6 persons. Room rates are very affordable.

Tekapo Backpackers

Lake Tekapo has a few backpackers including Tailor-Made Tekapo and the YHA Lake Tekapo (3 Simpson Lane), which is located on the edge of the lake.

As the name suggests, Lakefront Lodge Backpackers is also in very close proximity to the lake. The modern and clean hostel has a variety of room sizes including twins, doubles and 4 and 6 bed dorms.

Lake Tekapo Bed and Breakfasts

Tekapo has a raft of bed and breakfast (B and B) accommodation, particularly in the upper streets of town. So even though they’re not lakeside, most of the properties afford great views of the water and mountains.

Other Tekapo Accommodation

The Residence is a new development for Lake Tekapo with luxury apartments in a variety of sizes and configurations. These are lovely and have luxurious tariffs to match.
