Peppers Bluewater Resort, Lake Tekapo
Horrible room so small could open suitcases except on the bed. No views. Never stayed in such a small room with only one very small window facing a parking lot. I would not recommend this place to stay. Cheap developers put in tiny excuses for rooms.

The walls and floor were paper thin or else there was a family of elephants upstairs. The room very hot and air con was very noisy. Location lovely.

Make sure what type of room you are booking!
Cons: *The room was so small and no space to even put our bags,,,i see there are many nice rooms so just wondering maybe i somehow choose the wrong type of the room? *There is no table in our room so very inconvenient to have a cup of tea or to eat some snack. *It was after 9:30 pm when we arrived to the area and can not find the sign how to get to the hotel as it is kind of dark in Tekapo town. Pro: *Very close to all point of interest in the is a very small town... *Breakfast is not bad which you have many choice...

What a bathroom! !
Lovely room - overlooking Lake Tekapo - which was a bit hidden by mist. Not a lot to do in the rain - I just went for walk along part of lake Tekapo and went for dinner in a local eaterie.Highlights - comfy bed - balcony and huge bathroom with underfloor heating! !
