Wonderful location with an 5 min. walk to town, restaurants and next to the lake. It was very clean with all necessary amenities. Unfortunately one cannot see the lake from the room, but being across the road makes an evening walk a pleasure. Diane is a very accommodating & friendly manager, plus being very efficient and professional. We highly recommend... More

I was drawn to this place because of the beautiful flowers and location. It is on a side street with views of the lake from the picnic tables outside each unit. This keeps the motel quieter, but if I were staying longer, I would have liked to have a chair on a deck looking right out on the lake. With... More

Lakefront lodge is located on Lakefront Drive, hence the name. It doesn't have lakefront views from the rooms although picnic style tables are to the side of each room and the Lake can be seen from there. The room is an older building but has been renovated to a very modern look and spotlessly clean. It had a spa which... More

We stayed for one night after visiting Milford Sound. Thought the room was lovely with some nice extra touches including chocolates, spa treatment and exfoilant for the spa, and hot chocolate sachets (I don't drink coffee and most places only have coffee and tea). There was also free wifi, basic kitchenette and it looked very modern. The spa was awesome... More

Spotlessly clean and well appointed. Very convenient location with a well maintained property. Lovely gardens. Quiet. Picnic tables outside each unit. It should be noted that the property does not front on Lake Te Anau, but on a side street from which there is a limited view of the southern part of the lake. The side street does join the... More

This was the most friendly places that we stopped in during our New Zealand holiday, the couple who ran the place were welcoming, plesant and extremley helpful, to the point of loaning us their own 'sandfly' spray! The room was very clean, everything worked! and the spa bath was a bonus. Another bonus was being able to park right outside... More

This place had everything we could have asked, a large, well furnished and comfortable room with a separate bedroom, kitchen area and a spa bath in the bathroom and a nice outside area overlooking the lake. And we could park the car directly outside, really useful when you're unloading heavy cases. If the accommodation wasn't enough in itself the bonus... More

This is a lovely base for a stay in Te Anau. The room we had (number 8) was spacious, with a full kitchen and a sumptuous whirlpool bath. You can park your car right outside your room door, and there is a picnic table outside your patio door too. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the lodge is... More

What a great place! The staff was friendly and professional and went above and beyond to make our stay great. Our rooms were spacious, clean and relaxing - the perfect break after all of our Fiordland activities. The location, being close to Te Anu town center, was ideal as well.
