We only stayed one night, but great venue - well-located to the dining areas (although in a small town, everything is well-located), spacious and efficient rooms, and nice furnishings (particularly the bathroom). Throw in some free internet, and I have no complaints about this hotel.

We stayed for two nights and we agreed it was a very good choice. The owners were friendly and helpful in any way. They booked the boat tour for Milford sound and issued the voucher. There was several boat options and David (the owner) explained each in more details. Based on his advice we made selection and it was spot-on.... More

We stayed 2 nights at Lakefront Lodge and wished that all accommodation was like this. The welcome was warm and the room was very well thought out providing everything you could need and more. The cleanliness was of a very high standard and very well equipped. We had beautiful weather so it was lovely to be able to sit outside... More

The rooms are nice and spacious; there is a jacuzzi in the spacious bathroom, a lovely kitchenette in case you do not want to eat out. The bench outside the room facing the street is a delightful place to sit and watch the lake from. Every room has assigned parking place. There is something nice about these rooms that convey...

My wife and I are touring South Island in New Zealand and stayed at Te Anau on our way to Milford Sound. We chose Lakefront Lodge because the manageress was helpful and friendly; the rooms were clean and well equipped; and the location was convenient. It was one of the better motels we have stayed at. The main room was... More

Less then 5 minutes walk from the center street of Te anau where you can find restaurants and shops. Had a lot of... More
