Dock Bay Lodge is the perfect place to stay in Te Anau as the base to explore the extraordinary sights of Fiordland. The lodge is very nice in every respect. It is located in a beautiful setting, with spectacular views of Lake Te Anau, mountains, and well-landscaped grounds from every room. Not only is it spacious, clean, and homey, it’s also extremely well built, which is great for quiet nights when you retire to your room. Dawn and Mark are very good, friendly hosts, as was Diane. Dawn was very helpful in providing information and making arrangements for the sightseeing tours and gave great recommendations for dinner reservations. My wife and I stayed there three nights, and on our last day, Dawn suggested that we take a helicopter flight over Doubtful and Dusky Sounds. Within 45 minutes of our decision to take the flight, a helicopter landed in the backyard of the lodge to pick us up. It was very cool. The flight was approximately two hours long and was the highlight of our two week trip in the South Island. There are a number of activities to do while visiting the South Island, but viewing Milford and Doubtful Sounds via boat rides is a must. Weather permitting, viewing Doubtful and Dusky Sounds via a helicopter ride is equally (if not more) impressive. If you’re planning a trip to New Zealand, Dock Bay Lodge is undoubtedly the best place to stay in Te Anau.
