Jane is the best hostess we have ever encountered. The cottage was wonderful, spacious, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Jane made sure that everything was alright, and I miss the breakfast conversations we had with her while we were there. The Croft is located near Te Anau and pick up for tours can be arranged (with certain operators). From... More

Jane made us very welcome when we arrived and the cottage was absolutely beautiful - everything that you could want and extremely cosy. The view was fantastic, fields of sheep and then across to the lake and mountains beyond. We stayed for 2 nights and drove the Milford Highway to the Sound. An amazing experience! Jane was a wonderful host... More

These comfy cottages were purpose built to serve as a B&B. Although located near the road to Milford Sound (just outside of town), there was no issue with "road noise" after the sun went down as the traffic died down as well. The self contained cottages provide the facilities for a bit of cooking if desired as well as some... More

The cottages are gorgeous and very comfortable. Jane was a wonderful host - so very welcoming and helpful. Milford Sound is an easy 1.5 drive from Te Anau and is definitely worth a visit. We will definitely be back!!

We had the good fortune to stay in the Blue Cottage for one night this month and were only sorry that we had not understood both how beautiful Te Anau is, and how deeply comfortable we would be at The Croft. Jane and Ross have opened their "small" farm (8 hectors) to guests who stay in cottages that have everything... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely B&B on our travels around South Island. Jane and Ross make you feel like friends right from the minute you get there. Your cottage looks out over green pastures where ewes and their lambs are peacefully grazing. In the near distance is the beautiful lake and mountains beyond. The gardens around the... More

If you would like an extra-special experience on your visit to Te Anau, stay at The Croft. The location is superb. It is a garden setting, on a lake with the mountains as a backdrop. The two cottages are separated from each other and from the main house, so it is very serene. There are lambs and sheep frolicking nearby... More

Jane thank you for our lovely stay. Your blue cottage was a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy. Comfortable, warm, lovely decor and great breakfasts for both our mornings. We have recommended to anyone heading down your way.

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
