Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Had a nice stay here. The room was smaller than we expected. I would describe it as compact. However it had everything we needed. The bathroom was great - huge walk in shower and a heater. Located right opposite the "town center" of tekapo (which is super cute - consists of a single four square and a few restaurants), this place is close to everything. Breakfast was nice and tasty, there was a fair bit of parking around the resort and the staff were friendly.

Review:   Fantastic accommodation, with great staff. The location is gorgeous, but cold in winter! The TV needs WiFi casting capability for it to be perfect.
