This house we stayed in was subliminal. We had a large room, a closet big enough to store an elephant. The king-size bed was super comfortable and am ensuite with shower. We had a view on the mountains. We had access to a sun-room and dining area, which was perfect for us to eat our dinner. We also had the... More

There was one queen bed and one single bed, two arm chairs, a small kitchen and dining table, and a bathroom with... More

NB this B&B is now called Te Waka Lodge. Recently changed owner. There are three guest rooms, and we had the big one, upstairs. One downstairs had a shallow ramp to get to it. The room we had was huge. Real luxuary. Simple breakfast each morning. Peace and quiet.

We absolutely loved our 3 nights and days in Te Anau and Antler Lodge was the ideal spot from which to do so. We had a spacious self contained unit behind the house, which was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. Helen is a friendly and helpful hostess, who left our breakfast in our refrigerator every day, including eggs which we... More

We stayed in this B&B for 3 nights, using it as a base for visits to Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound. It was one of the nicest places that we stayed in in New Zealand. We had the upstairs apartment, adjacent to the house. It was extremely spacious and very well equipped. And comfortable! We were well looked after by... More

When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Chris. We stayed in the apartment in the back. Very spacious and everything for breakfast the next day was nicely stowed in the fridge. Our hostess, Helen, came to see us later that evening and one really gets a feeling of being at home with such great hosts. Thank you Helen and... More

When we arrived our host Helen draw our attention to the closure of the road to Milford Sound. Since we would go for a cruise she suggested that we should go to the cruise company to see whether we could change the date of the cruise. We clearly appreciated her concern in the pleasure of the guests. The room is... More

We stayed here for one night. The host was out when we arrived but she had left a note saying our room was unlocked and ready for us which was nice. There is no view as this is in suburbia but the room is more than adequate. The breakfast was included and very nice - a selection of 'continental' breakfast... More
