4 out of 5

Great location, quirky but roomy cottage

Pros: It’s roomy, well equipped and cle@n.
Cons: We originally thought it could do with an update, but after a few days we felt that the retro decor was part of its charm.
Location: Plenty to do, good restaurants and we took a flight over Mount Cook which was stunning.
Love Lake Tekapo, perfect location to explore on foot and they kindly loaned us 2 bikes so we could go further afield.
