On arrival in beautiful Te Anau and being greeted by Kerri we knew our very short stay would be enjoyable.
Our one bedroom apartment was beautifully presented , every little thing was well thought out. Congratulations to Kerri and Steve on a great Motel and fantastic hospitality.

We stayed here while taking a tour of Milford Sound. (Te Anau has a lot to offer itself.) The hotel is scrupulously maintained and the grounds are beautiful! Kerri is a very gracious host. She gave us several very good recommendations for restaurants and walking trails. All of the units have a view of Lake Te Anau -- the upper units have the better view. Most important to us was the quiet!

Room Tip: The upper units have a better view and are quieter. However, they do require walking up a flight of stairs -- no elevator.

Dear Doug K,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay here at Radfords. We are delighted that you found our units to be nice and quiet and the view of the lake I agree is spectacular! There are many great walking tracks around Fiordland - you may have to return one day to complete a few more.

We really do appreciate your feedback and hope the rest of your travels went well.

Kind Regards,
Kerri & Steve James

Radford's was a great place to stay while touring the fiord district. We had a very comfortable room, with a lake view. We could walk to restaurants in town and also to the office for Real Journeys with whom we booked our Doubtful and Milford Sound tours.

This motel ticks all the boxes and more.My wife and I spend three nights in March 2014 while visiting Te Anau and immediately you can tell that Keerie and Steven paid attention to detail..The location is perfect,immediately across from the lake and walking distance to the town centre and popular restaurants.We were attracted to the curb appeal of this property.
Guests with mobility issues can enjoy accommodations with designating parking. This review would not be complete without acknowledging Keeri for her exceptional customer service skills.
She is knowledge and very helpful in assisting with your travel needs and offered great suggestions.I almost forgot the nice chocolate on the night table.Sweet!

A great place to stay in Te Anau, nicely located on the lake front, but still within walking distance of the town centre. Spacious room, with a good kitchenette, and a spa bath (which I never took the time to use, sadly). The living room has a table and a coffee table, which is handy. Guest laundry can be used. It's not cheap, but still worth it. Ask Kerri at Reception to book you on Fiordland Private Tour's Milford Coach Tour - I'm very grateful for her recommendation, which made for an amazing day!

Dear Schumi3006,

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay here at Radford's Lakeview Motel. We are delighted you found your unit to be comfortable and enjoyed your time spent here.
It was our pleasure to book you on a small bus trip to Milford with Ray it is really nice for the driver to have a day off and sit back and relax and take in the sights whilst enjoying an informative commentary along the way.

We hope the remainder of your travels have gone well.

Kind Regards,
Kerri & Steve James
