We spent 2 nights in the green cottage and it was delightful, as were the owners, Jane and Ross. And like another recent reviewer, we made friends with Penny the cat. She was one of the highlights of our trip since we have cats at home that we were missing, and she was so very sweet. If I could make... More

The Croft is a lovely place to stay in Te Anau . It is a very serene quiet country place. Jane is an excellent host and we found out that Ross himself had built the cottages. We stayed in the Blue Cottage which overlooked the lake . There is a nice nook or bay window seat . Penny the curious... More

The Croft is a two unit B&B Located about 3 minutes outside of town on the Milford Road. Each unit is a stand-alone cottage in a garden setting with views of Te Anou lake and the mountains. The cottages have a spacious bedroom-sitting area, a small porch and kitchenette, and a nice bathroom. Jane is a wonderful host, and provides... More

We spent two nights at the Croft, a first-rate B&B. Jane and Ross were very gracious, helpful hosts, salt-of-the-earth folks. We had a lovely detached cabin/suite, clean, comfortable and with a glorious view. Breakfast was very good, lots of choices of fruit, cereals, yogurt, cheese, but no cooked course. Very adequate nevertheless. Ross shared about his ancestors from Scotland, who... More

My wife and I spent two nights in the small but perfectly formed Blue Cottage in February while we were touring the South island. This really is a little gem of a place with views to die for from your private deck across the fields and lake to mountains beyond..heaven! Jane is the perfect host. On our way to Te... More

We stayed in the Green cottage several years ago on our trip to Milford Sound. Lovely surroundings and perfect access to Milford Sound. The cottage was quiet and lovely with everything you need. Will stay here again.

Great location, restful, quiet and on a farm. Jane, the proprietor, is a wonderful soul who provided a nice breakfast, clean, cozy cottages amid a small farm with a lake and mountain view. We came to love her playful kitten, Penny, and met her bottle-fed lamb, "Molly," who, although grown now, has a lasting attachment to Jane. It was one... More

Jane and Ross run a wonderful place. It's the perfect mix between farm stay, B&B, boutique hotel, motel. We stayed in the blue cottage that has it's own private porch with view of the sheep, mountain and lake with a fantastic sunset to go with it. The cottage itself is quite spacious, comes with all mod cons and has a... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the green cottage and it was beautiful. This charming cottage is beautifully appointed and decorated and sits in the lovely gardens overlooking lake Te Anau and the mountains. Jane and Ross are so lovely, we so enjoyed our chats with Jane who was so hospitable and made us so welcome... More

We spent a delightful three nights here and could happily have stayed longer. With only two full days to explore the area and so much to choose from it was a huge help that Jane gave us great suggestions and a detailed map for the drive to Milford Sound - how to avoid the buses, which boat to take on...
