We can't say enough positive things about this accommodation. Centrally located for the best hiking and tours. Spacious, quiet, modern, extremely clean, well equipped units. Beautiful valley views as you enjoy dinners on the deck. The owner/manager has many tips if you are a hiking enthusiast. Very reasonable rates.

We were traveling to Milford Sound from Queenstown and decided to spend a day in Te Anau, stay overnight close to Milford Sound to make early drive short and pleasant. Knobs Flat exceeded my expectations. I wish I spent more time there. Nice small resort hidden in the mountains. All rooms equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay,...

Very old and small cabin, very basic facilities, many sand flies, extremely expensive for such a poor quality. Location is good 1.5 hour drive from Milford Sounds. Starting from 6 am cars driving on the main street make a lot of noise.

Awesome scenery and short walks from the accommodation. Friendly helpful host. We stayed here for 1 night. We didn't have a booking but we were lucky to get a staff caravan (it saved us from putting up our tent). The caravan was great, warm, tidy and cosy. The kitchen gets busy so get in early otherwise you'll have to wait...

If you need a stop over between Te Anau and Milford Sound, this is the place for you. Very nice cabins and the best secret waterfall ever, sorry PC, had to tell someone about it. Just ask PC for directions to the falls. Highly recommend for a night or two without TV and Internet connection...ahhh the serenity!!

This small facility is located in a fantastic valley, surrounded by tall forested mountains. The room was very clean, had nice cooking and bathroom facilities with the room. We rented one of their 3 stand alone cabins. The host was very helpful and gave us good information about trails and sights in the area.

The information panels explain the dramatic effect of avalanches in this area and you can see the actual results. You also get information on local animals and should see some of the only Alpine Parrots in existence....do not feed them no matter how cute they look as our food is not good for them and turns them into scrounges.
