The title says it all actually. And all the former reviews! Rob and Pauline are hosts who provide you with so much extra service, from the breakfast, and the perfect rooms, to the talks with tips about the Sounds and all others things you can go and see in this region. We especially liked the little museum we got the... More

We had a nice room wirh gardenview. Breakfast was delicious, service was good. U had a wonderful view from the veranda over the lake. The opportunity to leave your car on the property while doing a overnight cruise is a possibillity. The house has a very English touch

We had a very enjoyable and comfortable night staying in this lovely historic house. The rooms are large and nicely furnished with everything you need. Robert cooked up a great breakfast early before our Doubtful Sound day trip. The location is simply stunning.

Grand View House is very aptly named. We arrived at the perfect time to enjoy the changing light across the mountains and lake as dusk fell. The house is warm and inviting, with spacious airy rooms full of interesting items from the long history of this guest house. Our host Robert was exemplary and made sure we felt welcome and... More

This house with it's long history is amazing. Old english way with lounge, fireplace, good breakfast, makes you wanna stay longer. Robert being the perfect host , arranging a different boat tour when ours broke down, gives it the finishing touch. Being at the Southern island this is a must stay.

Gracious host who prepared breakfast to order each morning and shared the history of the house and his family as innkeepers. Large and comfortable room with a shared sitting room for quiet evenings. Charming and relaxing.

Gracious hosts, magnificent views, local knowledge, history and character, wonderful location this place has it all. My family stayed here before a Fiordland walk this summer and it was a wonderful start to a great adventure. Something special and different for this location.

Robert greeted us at his family homestead having been busy with projects to keep this wonderful, historic guest house in top-notch shape. We had a lovely, comfortable room overlooking the water & slept well before being treated enthusiastically to a delicious breakfast, preparing us for the day's trip to Doubtful Sound. A great base for further exploring, it is peaceful... More

Wonderfully comfortable B &B with a Grand View as advertised. The bedroom was large and well appointed. The lounge is very comfortable and it feels like you've been welcomed to someone's lovely home. Take a moment to look at the paintings. Our delightful host explained his was the 5th generation of Murrell to provide for travellers in Manapouri. He brought... More
