Reviewed 13 March 2015

Returned back to see Merle and Cliff after 3 year break.Great to see them again but could only stay 1 night as they were fully booked.We had tried to book more in August 2014, which show how
Popular it is.Had a lovely en-suite bedroom and even better Dinner with them again. Yummie. Yummie.Once again a very enjoyable evening with Cliff telling us of personal experiences of Bert Munro, of Fastest Indian fame.
Sorry we could not stay a 2nd night. But the good news Merle recommend Shirley and Alistair friends of theirs .We had a very good stay with them.

Room Tip: Book early if you want a en-suite Bedroom.

Admittedly this was the busy tourist season but the price $165 for a very basic room was excessive and certainly not worth it. Scarcely room to swing a skinny cat and the bathroom was up the stairs.
It did include breakfast but as someone who travel up to 8 months a year I have stayed in many other motels/b& B that were far cheaper and provided far more facilities. WOuldn't be staying here again.

We enjoyed a 2 day stay in November 2014. Merle & Cliff welcomed us with coffee and cake and were friendly and helpful, offering useful information about the local tourist attractions. The House of Wood (built completely of wood as you would expect) stands out from all the other properties around. Our bedroom with en-suite was very comfortable and met all our requirements. Breakfasts, selected from many options, were excellent. Merle also went out of her way to put us in touch with another B&B in Arrowtown where we were heading on to.

A big thankyou to hosts Merle and Cliff for a welcoming stay. Merle cooked a lovely brekky and she really went out of her way for me with a little personal issue I experienced. We were downstairs in a room with a queen bed which was much too firm for us, the bathroom was upstairs but was just ours and there were bathrobes we could use. A great location, a very short walk to centre of town. Thanks again!

My wife and I stayed here during a tour of South Island as we were going to Doubtful Sound. On our arrival Merle greeted us and showed us to a double room with on-suite.
The room was quiet and very comfortable. Merle invited us to dine with them as it was a quiet time and no other gusts were in that night. A delightful meal and friendly company. Next day before we left Merle booked our cruise for Doubtful Sound and prepared a picnic lunch.
We would highly recommend House of Wood and if we return to Te Anau we would not stay anywhere else
