Welcome to Lake Tekapo

This region is one of the most photographed and visited in all of New Zealand.
The Godley Hotel offers quality accommodation.

Overlooking the turquoise waters of stunning Lake Tekapo and the region’s historic place of worship, the Church of the Good Shepherd, The Godley Hotel is a uniquely well-positioned on the shores of Lake Tekapo taking in the spectacular lake and mountain views.

Just 1.5 hours driving time from Aoraki Mt Cook National Park and 3 hours from both Christchurch and Queenstown, the hotel is also only 40 minutes’ drive from local skifields. 

Off the slopes, leisure activities include day spa, star-gazing, horseback riding, scenic flights, beautiful tracks and walkways; all are within a few minutes drive from the hotel. The convenience of the Godley Hotel makes it a great choice for the region.
