“Very nice B&B, central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

This is a very nice B&B with 3 different room configurations. We had a double with ensuite - big comfortable bed, lovely linen, good bathroom with lovely soft towels. Merle does all her own laundry including ironing the sheets, so it was all very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with several choices and home made bread - pity I am gluten free! Just a short stroll to the little town, shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Choose the configuration you need as one room does not have an ensuite

We loved coming back again to this very nice B&B. Very friendly hosts and nice and clear rooms in a quite area of the village. Only a very short stroll to the shops and restaurants.
Looking forward to be back when we are next in Te Anau

We were only able to stay one night at the House of Wood but wish we could have stayed longer. Very comfortable beds, lovely backyard, great location, delicious breakfast and great value. Highly recommended.

Merle and Cliff run a professional wooden B&B, with comfy beds, a wonderful breakfast (homemade bread, jam and marmalade, even rhubarb!), and very practical advice on what to see and do there. Although, when it rains in Te Anau, the options are somewhat limited…

We enjoyed the hosts' company, helpful and interesting people. Merle called the grocery store for us when we forgot an item without hesitating. The room is pleasant with nice gardens and the home is so close to the grocery store in Te Anau. Actually it is in the town of Te Anau, so you can walk around town easily. Set in a residential neighborhood, this unique house made of special woods stands out like an oasis. The breakfasts here are the heartiest we had in our long trip in New Zealand. The host absolutely loves to cook (homemade bread and jams).

Room Tip: There is one room we know of where the bathroom is up the stairs, in case any of you would have an i...

We stayed three nights here and would gladly have stayed longer if we could! The room we stayed in was not very large, but had its own bathroom, direct access to the veranda on the second floor and a small fridge. Merle cooks up a large breakfast every morning, eggs, bacon, sausages, tomato beans, homemade bread, homemade marmalade, cereals, yogurt... the list just goes on and on! One morning we had an early pickup for a tour of Milford Sound, so Merle made us egg and bacon sandwiches for breakfast so we wouldn't go hungry, great service! Both Merle and Cliff knows the area very well and can tell you where you can do what and decipher the weather forecast for the next few days.

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year. We slept well, enjoyed the breakfast, and had plenty of space to park. It's actually a very short walk to town centre (much shorter than the equivalent drive) due to a cut through on the side of the house. Would happily go back.
