Of the three Te Anau B&Bs we stayed in, this was my favourite - probably because of the location. It's next to a park so there's lots of birdsong, and it's directly opposite the Fiordland National Park Visitor Centre which is worth a visit. The accommodation itself was very clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was fabulous :-)

Great location and comfortable, wonderful home cooked breakfast. Our host was friendly and helpful. The pooch Ata was a sweet doll and well minded. The B & B was right across from the Park museum and the Lake. Perfect for a nice walk on the lake.

We thought this place was very homely. Janice made us very welcome and gave us some good information. The room overlooked the lake and was very clean and well presented. The breakfast was very good and the waffles were great. Thanks for the great stay Janice, wish we could have stayed longer.

Lovely room. Great breakfasts. Omelets, fresh fruit, pancakes. All home made and delicious. There was coffee or tea available all the time. Hot tub outside. Easy walk to town. The owners could not be more helpful. I would stay here again.

Good little B&B in a good location down by the lake. Good for walks to the bird park Janice was very friendly and a lovely host and made us feel very welcome in her home. Excellent breakfasts. Would highly recommend to visitors to Te Anau.

We recommend this lovely place that has a comfortable room in a nice setting . Janice provided a wonderful breakfast and information about local attractions and restaurants. She offered to store our luggage while we went to Milford Sound for an overnight cruise.

The host was very charming, the room was decently sized, breakfast was home made and nice, with omelette and great coffee. We really liked the familial ambience since there were only four rooms. Our only complaint is that the beds are very soft, so if you have had a long day of driving, your back would probably suffer a little.

We thought that a greater option could be made for breakfast choices, not everyone likes pancakes. TV was hard to get mastery of and channels a wee bit limited. Site is excellent with other amenities close by

Good location on road opposite lake and the iSite. Short walk into main restaurant strip or can walk along lake south to the bird conservation area. Adequate parking and easy to find. Nice size rooms, ours overlooked the front and could open the windows which as a bonus for us. Sadly i believe this business is o market so not...
