Stayed 2 nights and the lodge had everything we wanted. Great location, all facilities and loved the free WiFi. Bathroom was very clean, but had very poor water pressure (Unit #9). Would definitely stay there again though.

We were very happy with our stay at Lakefront Lodge. Our room was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. As we were to arrive after the office closed, and to leave early the next morning before it reopened, we called ahead. The staff helped us with restaurant recommendations and to sort out the charges. They also opened the room, turned...

We enjoyed two nights at this little roadside motel. We were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment and were happy with the size of the room and all of the amenities provided. The manager was delightful and quite helpful in pointing out where to go in town for meals and shopping. There is a laundry machine right next to registration...

Lovely unit with many extra touch's which added to the comfort. The proprietors are very friendly and helpful and gave a tour of the unit when we arrived to ensure we were comfortable. Good location, close to lake and township.

After driving from Wanaka we arrived at our accommodation, Lakefront Lodge, about 3:00 and were able to check into our suite. This is a long and narrow facility with an equally narrow parking lot that has assigned parallel parking in front of each unit. As the name suggests, it is on Lakefront Drive and just across the street is beautiful...

Most of the accommodations in Te Anau are along the lake front. We booked this lodge via Agoda and only stayed for one night. We arrived in Te Anau pretty late at night and may be the last guest to check in on that night. As female travellers, safety is our number one priority and this lodge is just awesome...

Very nice motel right on the lake. We had a bedroom separate from the living room area, which had plenty of comfortable chairs and couches and a single bed/couch. Very helpful manager. Two blocks from the main street in town. Can easily walk to restaurants. Good continental breakfast and presented very nicely in jars, showing the management knows how to...

A very well appointed place with cosy decor. The place is very clean n spotless. The beds are comfy and we had a good night sleep. The owner has a beautiful garden. In the evening we walked along the lake which is just across the road. It was scenic and relaxing.

Stayed here for 1 night from Queenstown. Host was very friendly. You can find all sort of local activities brochures if you still find information from the host is not enough. Our lodge was spacious with a cozy double bed and a single/day bed. All are with clean linen, fancy blankets and lots of cushions. They even put lavender potpourri...
