Made to feel welcome straight away, very helpful information about local eateries and drinkeries etc. Room very nice with everything you might need at your finger tips. Private, don't need to walk through a lobby to get to your room so good homely feel. Easy walking distance to all the bits in town. Would recommend, cheers.

Great value for the money - quiet, clean, serene, and cozy. After a long drive, it was nice to stay here. I'd come back again, and would recommend the place to friends. While the outside might look like a motel, the inside was as nice as any lodge/hotel.

The lodge is big and have a great kitchen. It is near the info center of Te Anau. Moreover, the room has free unlimited wifi access. The rooms are quite clean that I can sleep in a quite and comfortable way. The balcony is cool that my family can have a dinner!

Overall it was a very good stay staff were wonderful and friendly room was well laid out and bed was very comfy. If we were to pick on anything it would be the shower pressure was a little on the weak side

Hi Jodi, Thanks for your review. I know there is nothing better than great pressure to shower under. We are working on this, just need the plumber to come up with smart ideas on how we can do this without pulling the place apart. Kind Regards Dianne & David More

I selected this lodge on-line because of its location, appearance and facilities. Lakefront Lodge exceeded expectations when staying for 2 nights prior to the Routeburn Classic on 26 April.

We stayed for 3 nights and found this motel to be excellent. The beds were very comfortable, great pillows and bedding, the kitchen was well equipped, nice fluffy towels and rooms were serviced to a high standard daily. We were walking distance to town, and the lake was only a 1 minute walk down the road, we only had to... More

The photos on the internet are deceiving. It is in front of the lake but the rooms have view to a side street. If you open your curtains anyboby walking by can see you, if you close them you have to turn the lights on. Really expensive for what they offer. You have to order breakfast before 7:00 PM and...
