My wife and I stayed here for two nights as part of our tour of NZ - It was our base for touring the local area and a sea kayak trip to Milford Sound. Across the road from Lake Te Anau, the rooms are outstandingly clean and modern and superb decor, facilities and attention to detail. No reservations at all...

Myself and husband stayed in this accommodation with friends from Southland New Zealand. The rooms were excellent and the hospitality and friendliness of the owner was second to none. It was a lovely place to have as a base and visit the local areas.

We were welcomed by a very friendly Kerri, at anytime we had a question on the area she had the answer. She checked on our plans while in Te Anau and gave advice and travel times to get there. We arrived early and our room was ready. It was very clean, smelt nice and had a view across the road...

We have just spent two nights at Radfords on the Lake. Keri was a gracious, welcoming and helpful host and the accommodation was great: spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, great linen and towels nothing that we needed was too much trouble. Would recommend this without reservation.

Our family stayed here and it was so clean and quiet. It had all of the amenities we needed, and Sky TV option was a blessing for our kids. Was just a quick stopover at Te Anau, and worth the stay. Great view of the lake, and the owners were very friendly.
