“This is THE place to stay!”
Reviewed 6 June 2010

Te Anau is the nearest access point to Milford Sound and is thus a town centered on tourism. As our Trips and Tramps guide to Milford told us – everyone there is in the tourism industry. He praised our choice to stay at Dunluce calling it one of the nicest places in town and we couldn’t have agreed more.

Wendy and Roger's house is beautiful! Quite honestly, I want one just like it. It’s contemporary and modern and set up perfectly. You truly feel at home there! The rooms are fantastic and Wendy offers an amazing breakfast and wonderful hospitality. We slept so soundly and were very comfortable! Also want to mention that they offer free internet and free laundry. If you are staying in Te Anau, you must stay here!

Another MUST is the Red Cliff Inn Restaurant. Here we had our best meal in NZ!

Dunluce is a fabulous b&b. The hosts have given faultless attention to detail and were welcoming and accommodating. The room we stayed in was spotless and spacious, the views wonderful. If we were to pick on two negatives, they would be the fact that it's a couple of kilometers or so out of town, and although the rooms have small private patios, there was no seating for those areas, so we couldn't sit there and marvel at the sunset over the mountains. (Having said that, there was a small communal patio outside the breakfast room.)
All in all, we'd recommend Dunluce, if you have your own transportation.

I will keep this brief:
Beautiful and very clean room: with an excellent bath / spa and a great view of the lake and mountains...very special indeed
Great toiletres that are of high quality
Great hosts: that leave you alone and yet seem to be close by when you do need them
Lovely touches: An umbrella when it is wet ...fresh cake in the dining room....good DVD's to take back to your room...chocolates left for guests just because they are nice.
Spare towels given to us to take on our Kyak trip.
Wine in the fridge for a nice glass (decent wine too!)
All in all: one the best B&B's I have stayed at and certainly worth every penny.
You would need a car to drive into town...but that makes it nice because it just far enough out of town to feel secluded and special.
I would highly reccomend

We stayed for two nights and would have been very happy to stay longer. Wendy and Brian are the perfect hosts, friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. As the other reviewers have said, the breakfasts were excellent and the homemade cookies, etc., very welcome. I think the idea of complimentary wine should be adopted in the UK. We would definitely recommend Dunluce to anyone wanting to visit Fiordland. It made an excellent base for seeing the area.

This was the perfect bed and breakfast. In fact, I loved this place so much that I want to build a house just like Roger and Wendy's! Exceptionally well laid out with very private accomodations. But a great gathering room with a large table for visiting (and always fresh cookies for our enjoyment)...and enjoying the delectable breakfasts that Wendy cooked for us. Even at 5 a.m.!! And Roger was the perfect host, engaging in conversation, but not overbearing. We highly recommend this delightful inn and give thumbs up to our lovely hosts. A true gem!

Stayed 2 nights in this excellent B&B. Very comfortable room with large bed, spa bath and great views. Complimentary tea/coffee/wine and free use on the laptop added to the attraction but the best was yet to come when we tasted the great breakfast prepared by Wendy. Te Anau centre is a short drive away and the recommendation to visit the cinema to view the Fiordland 30 min film was a plus. Overall we rated this in our top 3 stays in New Zealand.

Reviewed 25 January 2010

We like to stay in B&Bs as we find the service to be more personal than hotels or motels and the owners more knowledgeable about the area. Never could this be truer than at Dunluce. Roger and Wendy are super hosts

There are facilities for guests, such as a fridge and laptop, but best of all are Wendy's breakfasts and home baked treats.

We had a great stay here and are happy to recommend Dunluce to other tripadvisors.
