We stayed 2 nights at „Te Anau Lodge” in January 2009.

Location:
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.

George and Margaret are wonderful hosts for this converted convent B&B. Set in spacious grounds with views down to the lake but within easy reach of the town with its small selection of good restaurants. Don’t arrive too late in the afternoon or there might not be any delicious chocolate cake left to have with your afternoon tea in the library/guest lounge. Soft drinks, beer or wine are also available as is internet access.

Ask George about fishing, classic cars or tempt him with some golf shots on the front lawn. Cooked breakfasts to order are scrumptious – George plays the organ situated in the breakfast room (the original chapel) so if you ask him you can have breakfast with live organ music!!

Use the lodge as a jumping off point for an overnight cruise on Milford sound, George will even store your cases while you are away.

We can’t recommend Te Anau lodge more highly

Thank you George for being the perfect host of Te Anau Lodge. We like staying in places with interesting architecture and or a bit of history attached to them. The Lodge was a very comfortable lodging with beautiful views of the Lake. The bedroom was very comfortable , also with a lovely view .We appreciated being able to check our e-mails whilst sipping a glass of your nice Red Wine, and sampling delicious chocolate cake. The Library is a really lovely,cozy, beautifully decorated room. George was very helpful with recommending that we reserve a place at The Ratcliffe Cafe for dinner.We met Margaret briefly in the morning, and she was very friendly. George cooked us a delicious breakfast which set us up perfectly for our drive to Milford Sound. All in all, a perfect albeit too short interlude at a charming Lodge with a very gracious host. Te Anau is a nice little town, and we would like very much to return. Thank you George and Margaret.

The place itself was great - full of history and old stories. It is an old house with lots of wooden panels but that's part of its charme. The rooms are clean and full of light coming from the big windows. The view to the mountains around is exciting. There is a separate living room with a balcony, drinks and daily fresh cakes, internet access and sofas. Margaret and George are gentile hosts. Ask George to play a CD of Hayley Westenra. You will be deeply impressed by her voice. I've never listened to an angel before... Thank you George! If you need support in case of booking trips or nice trekking trips ask George and you will get support and you will enjoy your trip. George has also some insider tips concerning fishing.
We loved to stay at TeAnau Lodge and we promise to come back soon! Thanks, Elke & Juergen (Germany)
