“Lakefront Lodge”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

My husband and I stayed here in January 2014. We used the hotel as base camp for the Milford Trek. We stayed here the day before the trek and the day we returned. The staff were excellent and the rooms were comfortable. The hotel is also located within walking distance of restaurants and shops. The hotel is located next to the lake and the grounds were beautifully landscaped. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area!

Wonderful place to stay, very clean and comfortable. Very nice people to deal with.
Would have liked to stay longer. The pebbles out front do hurt your feet so be careful but a very minor thing.
Loved Te Anua

Hi Lyn
I am sorry we could not entice your stay a little longer , but all holidays have a plan and time frame. At least next time you will be able to chose Te Anau for a longer stay to explore the beautiful areas that surround us

Stayed a night between Queenstown and Milford. Clean, comfortable room with everything we needed. Room was a good design using the space to best advantage and ease from car park to outside space. Loved the outside space with all rooms cleverly designed to have views of the lake and mountains. Very convenient location with a 5/10 minute walk into Te Anau or the other way to the Parks office and bird sanctuary.

Room Tip: All rooms have the same angle of view along the the side of the building. Towards the front of the b...

The lodge locate in lakefront drive which is the best location in Te Anau. We checked in at midnight and the office has friendly service to us. Also the facilities in the room make us amazing and we really enjoyed the stay.

Stayed three nights to explore Milford and Doubtful Sound and worked well. Very clean and well appointed rooms, although took us the first night to work out the heating! Breakfast provided for us to cook which was ok, although we needed strong coffee so would go off to the Sandfly Café to get coffees ourselves!
Views of lake lovely too, although at an angle, not actually on lake front. Nicely located in Te Anau for all local activities.

Thanks for taking the time to place your comments. Sorry about the heater issue, it can be a pain to operate if prior guests have fiddle with settings. If summer would kindly make an apperance for us heating would not be an issue. I do hope the rest of your journey gave you a little more sunshine than Te Anau managed.
