Friendly staff, get left chocolates every day next to your bed, lavender bag on your pillow, hot clean water (seems like an obvious one but we just moved from down the road that had none), parking spot right outside your door, your own practical cooking facilities, great central location but still quiet. All round superb value! :)

Stayed with family the place is bang on lakefront drive and overseeing the magnificent lake offering spectacular views. You are unlikely to get straight views from the rooms as they look a way 90 degrees off the lake but close to practically the heart of the little town. Service and housekeeping was super. Lost hot water once at the night...

Very comfortable large room. Would be a great place to stay for a week or so, with lots of seating and space in the room. Service was very friendly. Best stocked kitchen we came across in our trip. Very close to town, a nice short stroll. Not quite lake front - but nothing is - it's just across the street

Very spacious lodge by the lake. Has everything you need for a lodge. Cooking place, microwave, fridge. Walking distance to most ammenities. Food, petrol, supermarket, resturants are just a stone throw away. Very cosy. Will be prefect if there are cable tv programs wired up for a quiet night.

We spent a night at this nice place during our self-driving tour of the South Island. Clean room, good location, and very attentive and professional service. The breakfast was pretty good. Good choice when you visit Te Anau.

The large room easily accommodated our family of four. The room was updated with a large, modern bathroom with a two-person jacuzzi tub. The hotel is located just a few minutes walk from the main tour terminal as well as downtown shopping and restaurants. While the hotel is directly across the street from the lake with nothing to block the...

Lakefront Lodge is a row of rooms stacked one behind the other. Reception is across the street from the lake and then 9 or so rooms are one behind the other behind reception. I expect all the rooms are similar, but I did not see other rooms. The room included a large bedroom, very large living and dining room area,...

Great views, warm, spacious, perfect. We have stayed at many places around the area over the last few years and this place is now my preferred option. The comfortable beds, lounge suit and facilities were perect.

The chocolates on the pillow each day were a sweet treat and were well received after a busy day in and around Te Anau. The units are clean and well appointed and the hosts were helpful and friendly. Don't expect a full lounge window view of the lake, but viewing at an angle or from the outside table in front...
