“What a wonderful view !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2010

This was without doubt the B&B with the most wonderful view ! Lovely B&B to return to in the evening, with a really comfortable and cosy room (and a big bathroom).
Viv was very friendly, gave us all the information when we needed.
And the breakfast was tasteful ! Especially the fresh fruit was great ! And some croissants, which we hadn't had before in NZ. It wasn't a problem for Viv to get up early for breakfast because we wanted to go to Milford Sound. We really appreciated that !
Great room with a great view, great place to stay !

Viv accommodated our every need: we stored luggage while we hiked the Milford Track, and she even let us clean our weary trail clothes in her washer/dryer. Mischief the cat is very friendly.

We had the pleasure to stay two nights in the B&B Lochvista.
The moment we walked in the very friendly owner, Viv asked us what we wanted to drink and she showed us our room. Since we asked a twin room and it was made up as a double, she changed it immediately!
We were so lucky with the weather and the view over the lake is stunning! There was a small terrace next to our room, which was very nice.
Since we wanted to go to Milford Sound we talked with her what the options were. She called Mitre Peak, a company which does boat trips in Milford Sound and we got in the next day. This is a really good tour since they have smaller boats so it is not overcrowded on the vessel and everybody can take very nice pictures.
She recommended us to go and see a movie in the city centre of Te Anau about the fjordland which was fantastic! I even bought the DVD.
The breakfast in the morning is very good, there's fresh fruit salad, cereal, müesli, toast with a lot of different spreads, yoghurt, orange juice and coffee or tea, ... a good way to start the day.
Viv has a very nice cat Mischief. I was glad because I missed my cat and for me it gave the B&B an extra homey feeling.
We would like to thank Viv for her excellent hospitality.
Lochvista is a really stunning place at only five minutes driving from Te Anau with a fantastic view over the lake!

Nice B&B (outside the little town of Te Anau) with stunning views over the lake and the mountains. Very convenient for trips to Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound. Good hospitality, decent rooms. However, not the place to stay when you have a cat intolerance. We liked it a lot.

Many other reviewers have said it all. Viv, the owner goes out of her way to extend good old fashioned Kiwi hospitality. Lochvista is a couple of kilometres out of town - you need a car to go back and forth. However, this is not a disadvantage as the location is one that is conducive to rest and relaxation. Whether that be in a large room, with excellent views of Lake Te Anua, or on the tables and chairs just outside the room this place has it all. The bed more than comfortable, the room had tea and coffee making facilities, a TV and all the amenities that you would need. The continental breakfast was substantial. We found Viv more than accommodating in making many helpful touring and restaurant selections. She went that extra mile to help make your stay enjoyable.

We would strongly recommend Lochvista.

Our time in New Zealand was made extra special by visiting Viv and Lochvista. The rooms are comfortable with spectacular views of Te Anau. Our room had a double bed, small fridge, t.v., coffee and tea amentities and ensuite. Everything in the room was immaculately clean and there was plenty of room to move around but it still had a cosy feel.
Viv could not have been more welcoming and her knowledge of the people and places around Te Anau helped us make most of our two night visit.
We used Lochvista as a jumping off point to visit Milford Sound. It's about 1.5 - 2 hour drive from the B&B providing you don't stop for pictures or views.
The continental breakfast was simple and delicious. The meal included cereals, breads, yoghurt , fruit and over course, tea, coffee and juice... a definite good start to the morning.
We could not have met a more gracious and genuine host than Viv. I highly recommend staying at Lochvista B&B.

This is a place worth staying at with a wonderful warm hostess who makes everyone feel very welcome and shares her home unreservedly. The rooms are very comfortable, stylish and cosy with everything you need from Electric Blankets to heated towel racks and mountain views from all of them. Breakfast time is flexible which is a big help with people's different needs. A perfect place to stay for some time with so much to see in that beautiful part of the world so close to Milford Sounds.
