Nice location on the Lake Tekapo. Some issues with housekeeping. Previous guest had left empty beer bottles in the living room. Also, the curtains were off the track, no maintenance people were available at the late hour, the front office person was able to close the curtains temporarily. Breakfast was pretty decent.

wonderful experience

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Peppers. The staff at reception were so lovely and made check in easy. We dined at the restaurant and our meals were amazing and service was great. Our room was perfect with a gorgeous view of the lake. The hotel is an easy walk into the town and down to the Church for some photos and a lovely walk in the morning and night along the lake. We would definitely stay again if we came back to Lake Tekapo 💙

Fabulous Lake View, Lovely Staff

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Peppers, all the staff are lovely and made us feel very welcome at check in. We dined at the restaurant and our meals were amazing. You can stroll into town from the hotel and walk along the lake down to the church. Our room was spacious and had a fabulous view of the lake, bed was comfy We would definitely stay again if we returned to Lake Tekapo 💙

Pretty average 3* experience

Sharon H Couples - TripAdvisor review

Peppers Tekapo had very small rooms and they were not too clean - dust and dirt in bathroom, hairs in the bed, mould on windows/sill - and were decorated with outdated and chipped furniture. Another basic missing was the bath mat - there were only 2 very thin towels and hand towels in the bathroom. The reception staff very helpful and friendly. A bit of a shame for the Peppers brand for this is clearly only a 3* property
