Really nice, good sized rooms, right on the lakefront with fantastic views. The host was incredibly friendly and helpful and even let us leave our car while we took a bus to Milford Sound after we had checked out. Only a few minutes from the Te Anau town centre which is a nice walk alongside the lake. Highly recommended.

We only stayed at the Lakefront Lodge for one night, but it was a welcomed retreat from a day of activity. We were greeted by a friendly desk clerk who helped get us settled in our room. The room was clean, orderly and nicely decorated. It felt welcoming and relaxing. I would stay here again.

We had a spa bath unit, with separate bedroom, the room was well furnished and appointed and lovely and clean and very cosy. There was a large TV in the lounge and a smaller TV in the bedroom. The town is a short walk through the park or along the very pretty waterfront, with a decent choice of restaurants and... More

Hotel is in excellent location - the town itself is very picturesque. Room was small but clean and tidy, check in was easy. Towncentre is just 5 minutes walk. Rates were pricey for the small room. Room however is little old. The bathroom is neat and tidy as well. Only if the washbasin could have a mixer tap rather than... More

Last minute trip to Te anau for one night and I looked for over a hour to find a hotel or motel that would suit. Lakefront lodge was the only one that stood out. At first when we booked it I did think it was a bit expensive but when we arrived that went out the window! Chocolates beside the... More

The accommodation was thoughtfully and tastefully furnished with everything you could possibly need with great attention to detail. There was a delightful touch of a Lavender bag on each pillow and a chocolate left on the bedside cupboard each day! Every room had its own patio with picnic bench and view of lake and mountains perfect for an evening glass... More

Stayed for 2 nights. The accommodation is within walking distance to Lake te anau but not facing it. The accommodation is clean with big bath tub. The stay would have been better if the heater works in the living room.

Drove over from Dunedin via the Southern Scenic Route, Knew it would be a long drive that day as we had planned. Got in that evening and found a warm cozy, very comfortable suite with a very friendly and accommodating owners and staff. Had takeout in the suite and enjoyed a movie and a great bed. The next day was... More

We had a fabulous stay at Lakefront Lodge, very clean and cosy. We stayed for two nights. Would definitely recommend Lakefront to anyone. Free wifi, although we did have a few problems logging back in when we had been out. Te Anau is a lovely place, lots of places close by to eat, we ate at the Italian La Dolce... More

Room is quite spacious and very practical. Very clean and so comfortable which I would like to recommend this place to other travelers. I stayed there 2 nights with my family and they like here very much as well. Location is very central among nice and quiet surroundings.
