We stayed 2 nights at „Te Anau Lodge” in January 2009.
The Lodge is located in Te Anau on a large private ground near the lake shore. It took us about 1.5 hours one way to drive to Milford Sound.
Lodge & Rooms:
The lodge is an old convent and was transferred to Te Anau from another part of New Zealand. We stayed in the Luxmore Room on the ground floor, with a large window towards the lake and grounds. Everything was very clean & tastefully decorated. The house’s and rooms’ furniture is mostly antique which gives the whole place a special, very lovely ambience. Breakfast is served in the old chapel, which is part of the building, and is excellent. We wanted to leave early for our daytrip to Milford Sound and the hosts offered any time for breakfast that would fit our needs –just perfect.
We can highly recommend staying here and would definitely choose this place again for a stay in the Fiordland region.More
