Wayne C. Couples - 11/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were very dissapointed with the room we were put in , it was very small (only one bedside lamp) . It wasnt like the "place" was full [far from it] It would have been in PEPPERS interest to have put us in a "decent" room, not "stuck away" in a tiny back room!! We were not impressed & would not recomend to friend & family.

I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Peppers, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us.

Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely,

Quiet, respectful and comfortable.

Peppers Located close to town , room quiet but was situated at the back of the property which was disappointing. Room was serviced but bed not made and rubbish left outdoor door. Meals were good but felt choice was limited.

Dear CHRISTINE, 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. At Peppers, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. Our sincere apologies for not getting your beds made and leaving the rubbish behind. I can assure you that this is not a Peppers standard and we will take appreciate action. With regards to room location did you speak to anyone regarding upgrading to a Lake view suite as the rooms located at the back are our mountain view suites. At alert 2 we do have a smaller version of our normal menu hence choices are limited,however we will share your feedback with the chef. 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,

Good Stay

Ina B. Couples - 09/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

An enjoyable time but room service for staying guests could be coordinated for when they are out. Our room was not done at 4pm and we asked for it to be serviced, which it was - with the person asking if 'we wanted our bed made?' Yes please, it's one of life's luxuries. Also, I accidently spilled some hot chocolate powder over the floor which wasn't cleaned up - perhaps a brush set could be placed in the kitchen.

Dear Ina B., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Peppers Bluewater Resort Lake Tekapo. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. We are sorry that our room service did not meet your expectations, however we are happy to know you still enjoyed your holiday. We will share your feedback with the housekeeping team and appropriate measures will be taken. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely,
