Great stay! Quiet, clean and comfy. We were greeted with tea and cookies. Aloma gave us suggestions about restaurants and activities in Te Anau. She also booked the most perfect boat cruise on Milford Sound. Her attentiveness and warm hospitality made this stay special. Barb and Eric from California
