Far more appealing than noisier Te Anau, Manapouri is a charming lakeside town on the edge of nowhere, the perfect place to spend a couple of nights when heading for the Doubtful Sound. Cathedral Peaks fits right in with this theme, being a delightful little B&B overlooking the lake and wihtin a 2 minute drive of your departure.
I'm not a big fan of B&B's in general as you really are staying in someone else's house, but Janice makes you feel right at home with a slap up breakfast, big clean, well equipped with a stunning lakeside view and stackful of DVDs for a quiet night in. On top of it all we got a free upgrade! We were delighted with our stay.
