We recently stayed at the Templenow cottages in Te Anau, A great place to base ourselves, lovely people and lovely cottage! Would strongly recommend staying here when visiting the sounds rather than driving from Queenstown!

Quaint modern cottages set in a peaceful tree studded location. We had the smaller of the 3 cottages available and enjoyed an afternoon relaxing on the sun drenched balcony. It was well equipped and suited our needs perfectly. The owner/managers were very friendly and helpful. Strongly recommended.

This is a fantastic location for visiting Fiordland and Milford Sound. The town is located by lake Te Anua and is only two and a half hours from Milford Sound. The surrounding countryside is spectacular and the drive from here to Milford Sound stunning. The accommodation comprises three cottages, all equipped to a very high standard and beautifully clean.

Great cosy little cottages 5-10 min walk into town. Reasonable prices, wifi is maybe a little weak in the room, but outside close to main office it's great. Dave is a character and will take care of you. The cottage is private, with a nice deck. We wished we could have stayed longer to explore more of the Milford. Wonderful... More

The Templenoe Cottages are set back from the Lake, on a major road that is about a 2 minute drive and 10 minute walk into the main town. If you are on a budget, then these cute cottages are the place for you. They are very clean, private and provides a quality accommodation for the great price. If you are... More

The owners are the friendliest people in all of New Zealand. They were very accommodating and even offered to let us borrow some DVDs if we wanted to watch something. They even left us a bottle of wine to celebrate our honeymoon. The rooms are tiny but are stand alone and are only a short walk from downtown.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting fiordland sites. Each cottage is a separate unit with a sitting area on the porch and picnic benches outside. They are arranged in a nice wooded setting. Our cottage was immaculately clean, but a little smaller than we thought it would be. It had everything we needed however, and the bed was... More

We stayed here for two nights.It is far better to drive here one day seeing things along the way then driving to Milford Sound the next day. The cottages are very well equipped, modern, clean and quiet. The owners were very hospitable even to the point of coming to our room to tell us there was a baby hedgehog out... More

These cottages just outside the town centre are pure bliss. Very friendly hosts, clean cottages and a comfortable bed. The cottages boast are completely self contained and have a nice porch. Though near the highway towards Milford, it's still very quiet. If I were to be in Te Anau, I would definitely come back.
