From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Kerri, we were impressed. This is the probably the nicest motel I have stayed in. Our room, on the first floor had been tastefully refurbished recently. It had a partial view of the lake, was very warm and quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom and kitchenette were well set... More

We had a comfortable and enjoyable stay here at Radfords Lakeview Motel. The upstairs executive one bedroom accomodation was spotless, roomy and of a high standard. The biggest asset to this property is the owner Kerri. Kerri offered very helpful advice both through emails and phone contacts I had made with her. It can be very overwhelming trying to work...

We booked to stay at Radfords after seeing that it was rated as the top accommodation on Trip Advisor for Te Anau. After staying there I can see why it gets such a good rating, it's fabulous. The room was immaculate, well laid out and spotlessly clean. The bed was so comfortable, the shower pressure was amazing and the room... More

We don't often stay in a motel die to bad experiences in the past; however this much is better than the 'normal' motel; the key difference (and why I give it 5 starts in the motel class) is the way Kerri (owner / manager) runs the show. Nothing was too much of a hassle, and did it with a great... More

We stayed in a two bedroom unit for two nights. One room had a double bed, the other twin beds. It unit was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well decorated. No view from our room unfortunately, but nice views from out the front of the motel.

Spent four nights at Radfords. Large apartment tastefully decorated with everything one would require for a fully self contained stay. Short walk from the town centre. I think the most appealing aspect of this establishment is the owners Kerrie and Steven. The most helpful, pleasant management staff you could wish for with no request too difficult. Absolutely go beyond what... More

We stayed 2 nights. Extremely clean! Beautifully decorated. We were in off season and had reserved a king room. They offered us the same room with a better view, but we were not upgraded, we paid. But we did enjoy the view.

Everyone wrote how hefty the room rates were, they are all correct and frankly, this is highway robbery, full stop. Nevertheless, the Kiwi staff are very knowledgeable and extremely polite.
