We'll be spending 3 or 4 nights in Te Anau in February 2007 for our 25th wedding anniversary.
I have booked an overnite on Doubtful Sound and am very excited about that! It costs a bundle, so I'd like to book romantic accomodations in Te Anau for a moderate price.
Any suggestions? We prefer locally-owned places with a friendly folks. Usually like b&bs. Would consider hotel if it had something special, like view rooms or jacuzzi/hot tub. Love a tasty b&b.
One of those nights will be on board the boat, of course. We want to add the other nights so we can also do the Milford Road and walks, and are possibly considering also doing either the Milford Sound boat (day-cruise only) or else the tour which allows you to hike just part of the Milford Track.
Over 20 years ago we visited New Zealand with our 2-year old. We zipped all over, and it was awesome...but this time we want to slow down and really explore places in more depth.
