An intimate B&B right next to Lake Tekapo that flaunts stylish design and just two guestrooms, Alpine Suites on Tekapo promises personal service and captivating lake and mountain views.
Jenny and Kevin welcome you to their beautiful abode which is the epitome of New Zealand hospitality: Alpine Suites on Tekapo.
Stunning views of the lake can be admired from your private deck while you sip a complimentary glass of New Zealand wine or beer, while night-time brings a canopy of glittering stars in this low light pollution zone.
There are only two suites here, both decorated in a modern style and appointed with fantastic amenities such as super-king-size beds, walk-in showers, fluffy bathrobes and electric blankets to keep you cosy.
In the morning, Jenny and Kevin make a delicious breakfast for you, setting you up for a day of adventure. It’s easy to explore from here, as the B&B is just a 15-minute walk to town where cafés and restaurants await; while the region is bursting with outdoor adventures to be had.
Don’t miss the Church of the Good Shephard in Tekapo, said to be the most photographed in New Zealand, which will come as no surprise once you see the breathtaking backdrop that surrounds it.

There are only two suites at the B&B – Aoraki and Takapo – which are equipped with the same amenities and offer the same perks; such as a complimentary minibar stocked with New Zealand wines, beer and non-alcoholic drinks, plus a private terrace that looks out over beautiful Lake Tekapo and the surrounding mountains. Mod-cons are aplenty, including Wi-Fi, USB ports, Sealy super-king-size beds, flat-screen TVs with Netflix, hairdryers and straighteners, bathrobes, slippers, electric blankets, walk-in showers and organic Surmanti toiletries. The only real difference between the two suites is the décor!
Activities and Entertainment
Lake Tekapo and surrounds is quite simply an adventure mecca, with such spellbinding landscapes providing the perfect stomping ground for outdoor activities. Hiking here is exceptional; delve into the Aoraki-Mount Cook National Park, admire Lake Tekapo from Cowan’s Hill Walkway, or head up to the lookout at Mount John for breathtaking panoramas of Mackenzie Country. Explore the region on two wheels while journeying along the Alps to Ocean Cycle Trail, go mountain biking or horse riding, and get a bird’s-eye-view of the staggering glaciers nearby on a helicopter or light aircraft flight.
You can also play golf at the courses of Balmoral or The Cairns, try fly-fishing, soak in the thermal waters of the Tekapo Springs Hot Pools, and in winter enjoy skiing at Round Hill. Then, conclude a day of adventure with a spot of stargazing from your private deck; Mackenzie Country has been designated a Dark Sky Reserve, limiting light pollution so that the millions of stars up above can be fully admired in all their glory.
Alpine Suites is a small, intimate B&B, so don’t expect any grand facilities here! Instead, there’s a cosy living room to curl up with a good book, a Wi-Fi connection throughout and sundecks for each of the two suites.
