Check booking v carefully especially if booked by agent such as Trailfinders. Essentially you get allocated the Sleep & go rooms at back of site with a view of car park & a tiny window.These are tiny & no room to unload case. There are tiny narrow wardrobes & the only 3 draws were filled with items such as hairdryers/iron/ blanket. Very disappointing & definitely felt more 2star not the luxury displayed on board. Clearly designed for a mini break with a tiny bag ! Many Trailfinders customers stop here on way back to airport & generally have large cases after a long trip. If you comment to management you get a cut & paste response ! Others there at same time felt same. Clearly not valued as customers. Please Trailfinders do not use for your clients at end of long trip.

Modern/ish hotel in a beautiful location

Pompier-Partners TripAdvisor review

The hotel is well-situated. However, be sure to get a lake view room. The room was spacious and well equipped - but needs a lick of paint. Staff friendly and helpful. We drove up to Mount Cook from Tepako, all the views are amazing…………………………….

Complete rip off

Absolutely disgusting. Breakfast is 35£ and inedible. At 8.30 they ran out of bread, croissants and hot water. Savoury items all processed. Fruit is tinned. Accommodation is like UK student accommodation. Staff are lovely, no idea how they stay upbeat. No pool or facilities and nothing to do in the town.

Beautiful view and great staff!

Nice view of the lake, spacious room, great hospitality and staff! My husband and I were here on our honeymoon and they prepared a lovely snack tray for us to enjoy! It was delicious!

Other than above comment re room, we enjoyed our stay. Restaurant staff friendly and helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Peppers Bluewater Resort Lake Tekapo. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. I note your reservation was for one of our standard hotel rooms which are by definition and are of course advertised as a ‘Sleep & Go’ type accommodation. Depending on occupancy at the time of arrival, we sometimes able to offer upgrade options. These upgrade options for larger room types incur additional fees as would happen in most hotels. At Peppers, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Mosese Rokolaqa
