Lakefront Lodge
Ranked #3 of 22 Hotels in Te Anau
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 February 2014

We were greeted with a friendly welcome and shown to our room which contained a king sized bed (very comfortable) two easy chairs and a small dining table and chairs. There was a kitchenette and a bathroom with an excellent power shower.
Nowhere is very far from the centre in Te Anau but this premises is ideally situated with a view of the lake and 5 minutes from the Main Street with restaurants and shops.
The complementary wifi is unlimited which is a useful bonus if you want to FaceTime home or upload photos to a sharing site.

A well run motel with efficient service and large rooms. Parking right outside the door and nice terrace with partial lake view. Walking distance to all the restaurants. Keep in mind to book a table at restaurants since they can be busy in high season.

My husband and I spent ten days at Lakefront Lodge in beautiful Te Anau. Te Anau has so many hiking opportunities which attracted and kept us there, but we wanted a place we could come home to after a hike and feel as though it was home. Lakefront was a perfect fit. Dianne and her staff were welcoming and friendly. Dianne generously shares her knowledge of the area. Our unit was spotless and well-equipped. We cooked in nearly every day, and the kitchen had everything I needed. Internet is provided; there are laundry facilities available. We loved staying at the Lakefront and hope that you consider staying there if you make a stop in Te Anau.

Hi Linda

Thanks guys for your review, I hope you have managed to give those feet a long awaited rest as you certainly covered some tracks while you were in the area. Though I am sure there are more awaiting your return.

Kind Regards
Dianne

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...
