My daughter and I have been fortunate to stay in one of the wonderful cottages at The Croft on 3 different occasions and have finally gotten around to writing a review. The cottages are very comfortable and located in a quiet and peaceful setting. Jane is so helpful and recommends and makes the bookings for Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound... More

We stayed here for two nights in Te Anu. This is probably the best traditional B&B we have stayed in. The cottages were tasteful and cozy with a beautiful view overlooking a garden. The bed was very comfortable and everything was spotless. The hosts, Jane and Ross, were very friendly and made us both feel extremely comfortable. Jane helpfully gave... More

It’s a pity that we only stayed in The Croft for one night . I have to say, Green Cottage is my dream house, much much better than those 5 stars. The croft locates near the lake, very quiet with beautiful garden. The cottage is well furnished, extremely clean and high quality, with private bathroom. The privacy is much better... More

The Croft is an absolutely gorgeous B&B in The Anau. You can stay in one of two lovely cottages both overlooking an idyllic garden. The cottages themselves are very cosy and beautifully furnished. You can tell that Ross, who built the cottages has put al lot of thought and effort into them. The hosts Jane and Ross are certainly one... More

Just off the SH94 but so peaceful and quiet. We stayed here two nights with a visit to Milford Sound (don't miss!) and it was just perfect. We stayed in Green Cottage which had everything we needed including a fabulous view across to the lake. Jane was very helpful and provided lovely breakfast both mornings. Hard to see how this...

We stayed in the Green Cottage for 5 nights in January 2014. Our hosts Jane and Ross could not have made us more welcome. The cottage is very comfortable with everything thought of. The breakfasts were delicious as were the "treats" that Jane left every day. Te Anau was a very good centre for exploring the 2 sounds. It was... More

Two charming cottages (away from each other so good privacy) tucked away in an immaculate private garden. Sitting on the porch looking at the lake and mountains beyond the garden and their fields (the owners still keep sheep) with a glass of wine, we felt miles away from the much more commercial motels of central Te Anau. In fact, we... More

We stayed here during a fishing vacation, but wish we had a few extra days just to sit and relax on the property. The easiest way to describe staying here is that it felt like we were at home. Jane was a great host and my wife and I enjoyed our conversations with her. Te Anau is a great town... More

We stayed mainly in motels during our three-week trip in South Island, and staying at The Croft was a VERY welcome change! Jane and Ross greeted us as soon as we pulled up the driveway, and immediately we were treated like family. The green cottage is a cottage of our dreams, and it looked out onto their large, beautiful property.... More

The Croft was one of the few B&B's we stayed 3 nights in and we never regretted it! The Blue cottage was like a home away from home, you could walk through their farm down to Lake Te Anau - such a perfect base to explore Fiordland NP. A special mention to our host Jane who was lovely to deal... More
