best thing is location

location location location
room very small, yes it did have lake view(partially)noise from upstairs bad, not much sound proofing, and when we go to restaurant for dinner at 7pm,closed.we were told lack of staff.but still many people in the restaurant. And when we come back later to get Wi-Fi info. Even more people in the restaurant. If you want a nice hotel. The GODLEY is not the place to stay

The Godley hotel Tekapo

Good location very close to Tekapo lake, friendly staffs
The room was clean and tidy however building itself and all facilities were quite old and damaged. Heating system was also old but no problem with make room warm even in winter. Access to the shops and bus transit are only 2 minute away. I recommend to stay lake view. Overall not too bad.

Room is not what you see on the site

Location, location, location
The key to our room didn't work, tried it thrice after returning to the lobby to get it exchanged. Then we were switched to another room in a different area of the hotel, which is much older and it didn't look like what was in the photos. Room was cold. Hot water was very limited. Water pressure was limited. Great for roughing it out!
