“good place to stay”
Reviewed January 19, 2005

The Lodge is a fine place to stay in Te Anau. The rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious (though neither charming nor interesting). They all have kitchens and some have spa baths. The location and staff are very good, though it is a bit overpriced (but most of Te Anau is, especially in the high season).

a v. good motel I found in NZ, we rented a studio room. Yet, it came w/ all necessary facilities. Appreciate the kitchen v. much, it's basically a full one, instead of just microwave, toasters, coffee-maker as from other motels.

This Motel is well equipped with all culinary items one could wish for. Being right on the Te Anau Lake front is a great location. New owners as of September 2003 will do anything to make your stay enjoyable. Within easy walking distance of the mainstreet, one way, and the Information Office the other. This is the best starting point for day trips to see Milford Sound where I recommend taking a trip on the Red Boat to see Mitre Peak which rises up out of the Sound.

This is a great little inn right across the street from Lake Te Anau.
Very clean, practical, comfortable & great value (visited in June/03).
Very friendly & helpful owner (Ann). Each unit has all the basics including TV, kitchen, small frig, electric blanket, towel warmer, etc.
Easy walking distance to town. Fiordland Bakery is a great place for a cooked breakfast or lunch, & for takeaway sandwiches, bread & deserts.
Also in town try Captains Steak & Seafood. Te Anau is a great base from which to explore Milford Sound & Doubtful Sound. Both are a must to visit. Look forward to staying at Lakefront Lodge again for next visit.
