The room was very comfortable with fantastic views. The hosts were so friendly and managed to sort out our own problems very efficiently. They gave us great advice on eating and travelling. They knew the road to Milford Sound was blocked (rock fall), and let us know when it reopened. They arranged an idyllic boat trip for us there. We... More

Thank you very much. At the risk of being repetitious it is always easy to host nice guests as they make our job enjoyable. We hope you enjoyed the rest of the South Island More

We stayed 2 nights there. Doug and Lynda make you feel like home. You can enjoy family moments and at the same time have your own privacy. It was hard to leave them. The house is very clean and modern. Well situated from the city centre and it's the closest accommodation you can here on Milford sound.

We had a lovely stay with Linda and Doug. The view on the mountains is gorgeous, the room is comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Be aware that the toilets and bathroom are in the corridor, we did not mind but some people might. We will come back for sure if we have the chance!

We stayed with Doug and Linda at 23 Paton for two nights on our recent visit to New Zealand. It was a fantastic stay, we'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a very comfortable and welcoming place while in Te Anau! The room was very comfortable, with amazing views. The bathrooms were down the hall (but private) and huge... More

Doug and Linda are lovely and welcoming hosts and served a wonderful breakfast. I agree with the other reviewers about how delicious the muffins are as well! The rooms and bathrooms are beautiful and clean, and the views are gorgeous. I especially loved the panoramic view from the breakfast dining table. The bedrooms both have views to the mountain and...

Travelled as a party of 3, staying 2 nights. Doug and Linda are a welcoming and hospitable couple. The bedrooms and bathroom were clean, with modern décor. The beds were comfortable and the shower had great water pressure. The settings were tranquil, with spectacular lake and mountain views from the twin bedroom and dining room. Our hosts served a satisfying... More

We stayed here for just 2 nights and we wish that we had stayed for longer. 23 Paton is a beautiful home and we felt privileged to have the opportunity to share it.

We stayed with Doug and Linda for two nights when traveling as a couple early May this year. We were the only guests, so very comfortable. Bed was big and comfortable, bathroom was *huge* and spotless, and the bedroom view is inspiring.. :-) Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and Linda's homemade muffins are a real killer.
