Very comfortable large room. Would be a great place to stay for a week or so, with lots of seating and space in the room. Service was very friendly. Best stocked kitchen we came across in our trip. Very close to town, a nice short stroll. Not quite lake front - but nothing is - it's just across the street

Very spacious lodge by the lake. Has everything you need for a lodge. Cooking place, microwave, fridge. Walking distance to most ammenities. Food, petrol, supermarket, resturants are just a stone throw away. Very cosy. Will be prefect if there are cable tv programs wired up for a quiet night.

We spent a night at this nice place during our self-driving tour of the South Island. Clean room, good location, and very attentive and professional service. The breakfast was pretty good. Good choice when you visit Te Anau.

After going through the reviews of all the accommodation options in te anau, I decided to go with lakefront lodge and let me just say I'm very glad I did.

The large room easily accommodated our family of four. The room was updated with a large, modern bathroom with a two-person jacuzzi tub. The hotel is located just a few minutes walk from the main tour terminal as well as downtown shopping and restaurants. While the hotel is directly across the street from the lake with nothing to block the... More

Lakefront Lodge is a row of rooms stacked one behind the other. Reception is across the street from the lake and then 9 or so rooms are one behind the other behind reception. I expect all the rooms are similar, but I did not see other rooms. The room included a large bedroom, very large living and dining room area,... More

Great views, warm, spacious, perfect. We have stayed at many places around the area over the last few years and this place is now my preferred option. The comfortable beds, lounge suit and facilities were perect.

The chocolates on the pillow each day were a sweet treat and were well received after a busy day in and around Te Anau. The units are clean and well appointed and the hosts were helpful and friendly. Don't expect a full lounge window view of the lake, but viewing at an angle or from the outside table in front... More

We would highly recommend Lakefront Lodge. The staff went above and beyond to help us make the most of our time in this beautiful part of the country. We were walking distance to town and right beside the lake. The room was spacious and well stocked with everything you would need. Highly recommend!!

This place was a nice stay for the three nights that we were there. The kitchenette was quite functional, and the manager was very helpful (she was able to call Real Journeys and have them hold a spot on the bus to Milford Sound until we could walk over there and make the official reservation). And there were really nice... More
