On our 4 week trip through New Zealand Te Anau Lodge was our favourite place we stayed by far.
It is a beautiful old building (it used to be a convent) with lovely rooms and furnishings. There is a great library/sitting room with a fantastic collection of books and coffee and cake.
The library had stunning views of the lake and mountains.
The food was delicious - breakfast is held in the old chapel. We loved the still-hot blueberry muffins.
As other reviewers have noted though, it is the hosts who really made our stay special. Matt and Chloe are really kind and generous people and their lodge is very homely and full of warmth.
We thought that it was great value for money and will definately return on our next New Zealand trip.
