“Amazing views and an amazing hostess.”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

We stayed with Viv for two nights and were glad that we did.
We were made to feel so welcome in Viv's home and were very comfortable.
A little out of town it is a great location to stay if you are spending time in Te Anau and/or heading to the national park or Milford Sound.
Viv can't do enough for you with a lovely breakfast, excellent recommendations and generally being extremely helpful.
With the added bonus of a cuddle from Mischief the cat I would highly recommend Loch Vista B&B.

Loch Vista is a couple of km out of town and has simply amazing views of Lake Te Anau.
You’re made to feel very welcome and Viv is really lovely and friendly and only too happy to help. We had a lovely time there and took some of Viv's recommendations on board, which were great. I’d definitely return and recommend if you’re in the area.
Although you are a couple of minutes out of town it wasn't an issue for us at all. We took 2 tours and both picked us up from Viv’s place which was a great help.

About 5 kms out of Te Anau on the road to Milford Sound, the lake on left and Loch Vista on right. The room we had looked out over the Lake and mountains a very beautiful view with patio doors leading out onto an area where you could sit out and enjoy the view. The hosts were very accommodating providing a good breakfast. Ideal place to stay to tour the sites of the area.

I highly recommend this B&B. We stayed at Loch Vista 2 nights in February-one before our Milford Sound overnight cruise and one after. It was perfect. The view was spectacular. The room and bathroom were very clean, well furnished, and the bed was comfortable. We had everything we needed. Viv was very helpful in making reservations for some activities and recommendations for restaurants. She offers free wifi. Viv held our big pieces of luggage for us so that we didn't have to worry about what to do with them when we went on the overnight cruise.

Hostess Viv was forthcoming with directions when the GPS unit failed us, and when we got there she and her very friendly cat Mischief were waiting for us.

The room was lovely and met any standards I care to put it to. There was more closet space than we could use, and the electric blankets and space heater were very welcome. Breakfast was a welcome continental with fine croissants and cheery company. I suppose this goes for any B&B, but I fully recommend timing your breakfast to eat with other guests. They make the experience best.

The view was gorgeous and the short drive to town was the easiest thing. Viv was also helpful in finding us parking where we could leave our rented car during our all-day tour, which we needed to meet in Te Anau, and in measuring out our driving times.

If forced to criticize, I would say that it could use a bigger flag on the highway to make it obvious. But that's more because I get nervous driving in new places than anything else!
