“You won't be disappointed in choosing the Antler Lodge B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2011

We stayed for 2 nights and found Hellen & Chris to be great hosts, they have thought of everything you would want in a B&B. Our room had a well equipped kitchenette with all crockery, glassware and cutlery together with the essential pots and pans that you would need, even a spray can of cooking oil. There is a microwave, hob unit and a well stocked fridge (butter, bread, 4 eggs, orange juice, fresh milk, yogurt, container of peaches and a bottle of chilled water). There are tea bags and coffee, a choice of 3 cereals, marmalade, jam and honey too) The room was nicely decorated and furnished and had a roomy bathroom. We must stress how clean we found everything and commend Hellen on the cleanliness of the accomodation.

The Antler B&B was a perfect stay for us. We stayed in one of the back cottages and they were spacious, quiet and very clean. The shower was the best with great water pressure. Helen was so pleasant and always available if we needed her. We were able to prepare our own breakfast in our room of cooked eggs with toast, coffee and juice (left each day by Helen) , and then head off for sightseeing and tramping along the lake or Milford Sound road. The room was also serviced each day and fresh towels left, so coming home each day weary from exploring; the room was a welcome sight.
Chris and Helen also responded quickly to our initial queries. Would stay again.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Antler Lodge, upper room. It is big, comfortable, nice and clean, so we enjoyed our stay there a lot. After walking the whole day this is the perfect play to stay. Helen was very nice to us giving advices on the places to go, tracks to walk, restaurants to eat and so on. We have excellent memories of this place.

Best bed and breakfast for the price in Te Anau. About $150 NZ a night. Very nice cozy rooms, a little tight for our family of 4 but we were told it would be. Good breakfast food in the fridge. Very nice owners.

We really enjoyed staying at the Antler lodge as it is in a convenient location (but not at the lakefront) and our room was very clean and spacious as well as fully equipped with stove, fridge, toaster, microwave, etc. Our bed was very comfortable and the room had a small porch. The breakfast consisted of toast, jam, cornflakes, juice, yoghurt, canned fruit, milk and eggs. It is put in the fridge every night for self preparation. We would also like to mention that we had very good and inexpensive FISH & CHIPS (blue cod) twice from a place that just opened up business in a trailer which is parked at the lakefront close to the i-site tourist information (I think the name was Melly’s).

The room was wonderful - large and well fitted (we had the upstairs studio). We had enough privacy but Helen was extremely helpful when we needed it. The location was good, easy walk to everything but it was the sort of B&B where you were happy to just enjoy being in the room. Highly recommended - the only down point - no wifi but apparently email access is available.

Helen responded to my repeated queries with great patience and promptness. Due to time constraints we couldn't stay long but she made sure that our tours were organised to maximise our time effectively. I wish she could organise all my holidays.
