Nothing but good. Receptionist showed us to our room and reviewed the operation. The room was very large with two recliner chairs. The internet was particularly good and this is something that's important to us.

Within walking distance to Lake Te Anua and the city centre. We stayed here so we could check out the Milford Sound (travel time is about 2 hours from Te Anua). Was cooler weather when we stayed but luckily the room itself was well insulated and had heating. The living room and kitchen were open plan and overall it was...

Very friendly staff. The location is really good. Rooms might get a little bit too hot during the afternoon if it's a sunny day outside, but nothing you can't deal with. Everything is within a 5 minutes walk. I do recommend this lodge. We were 3 people. 2 adults and a 7 years old child.

The room was large, well appointed and had...

Each room has a big sliding door that opens to a gravel area with a picnic table and umbrella and a lovely view of the lake. The weather was gorgeous when we arrived and it was lovely to sit outdoors...

The units are well designed and well furnished, with a more than adequate main living area, and an extra bed for a third guest. The bedroom has double doors opening onto the living are. The kitchen is more than adequate for...

Spent 3 nights, nice rooms within easy walk to town, tours etc. Very clean with nice staff. Kitchen well equipped for making breakfast in room. Easy to book tours at reception, convenient laundry facilities. Rooms are on a side street close to, but not on, the lake. Lower units have partial view of lake.

location was excellent, right on the lakefront road with views of the lake. David met us and made us feel right at home immediately. The room was spacious with patio doors leading to a small patio with picnic table and umbrella. Pick up for our trip to Doubtful Sound was outside the main entrance. Would have stayed longer but we...
