My husband and I stayed with Doug and Linda for two nights whilst travelling through New Zealand. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and are very knowledgeable about the area. As we were the only guests we had sole use of the bathroom and toilet. Doug and Linda have two rooms but only take either... More

We recently stayed 2 nights with Doug and Linda while my partner ran the Kepler Challenge. They went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly for us. The bed was super comfortable and the scenery around the property is just stunning. I particularly enjoyed being able to read my book lying in bed with beautiful mountain views... More

We stayed with Doug and Linda for two nights when traveling as a couple early May this year. We were the only guests, so very comfortable. Bed was big and comfortable, bathroom was *huge* and spotless, and the bedroom view is inspiring.. :-) Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and Linda's homemade muffins are a real killer. But best of all... More

We truly enjoyed our 2 nights stay with Doug & Linda. They are very lovely hosts. The room was bright, clean and the bed super comfortable. The private bedroom had a tub and a spacious shower, very clean. Breakfast was amazing - Linda bakes the best muffins ever. We would definitely come back!

We spent two nights here, and what a stay it was. The house was charming and very well kept. The bedroom and bathroom were both huge and very comfortable, one of the best we had during our time in NZ. More importantly, Doug and Linda were great hosts and welcomed us with open arms. We felt more like friends than... More

This is perfect. Doug and Linda and are such friendly and interesting hosts. The views from the room of the Fiordland mountains are wonderful. Only Kirsty and Tony's Suainiaval in the Outer Hebrides beat this. Breakfast was extensive, delicious and in a room with equally inspiring views. If we go back to Te Anau, will not consider anywhere else while... More

We are very happy to have found 23 Paton via TA! We stayed for 2 nights and we couldn't have asked for more. The room and bathroom are super comfortable (best shower we've had in NZ!) and it's obvious that a lot of love and care goes into their home. From the bedroom you have lovely views of the surrounding... More

We spent 2 nights with Doug and Lynda in their lovely home overlooking fields and Te Anau lake. The hospitality was great and we were amused to find that Doug's ancestors had come from the same small town in Scotland as my father-in-law - Tain. Breakfast was lovely with fresh fruit and muffins each morning and whatever muffins we didn't... More

Linda and Doug were very welcoming and made it feel like home. Lovely room and bathroom - with great views ( once it stopped raining ). Linda put on washing for us as we were running short of clean clothes which was very helpful. Nice 'continental' breakfast. They arranged our coach/boat trip to Milford Sound which was fantastic. Great tea... More

Linda and Doug could not have been more welcoming, we felt completely at home. Lovely people, beautiful house, fantastic views. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfast muffins were straight from the oven and delicious. We didn't want to leave.
