We couldn't recommend this place enough! We were married in the quaint intimate little church in the lawns, with two beutiful cars leased from the lodge. Nothing was a problem, from the fabulous photos inside the lodge itself to bringing machinery onto the grounds George was happy, cheerful and always happy to help.

This lodge is just super. I don't usually rave about staff as I generally appreciate professional and straightforward service, but George at the Te Anau Lodge is just an exceptional guy, and made us feel so welcome, helped us out, and really took care of us. Also serves a terrific breakfast. Although I haven't visited every property in Te Anau,...

What a lovely place to stay! We were well looked after, we had a friendly, warm welcome. A comfortable, clean accommodation with great food in a stunning location! They helped with tours and held a wonderful chamber music festival at the church during our stay. Will forever remember this venue.

After 3 days of travelling and walking in Fiordland; the lovely comfortable bed, good hot shower and amazing breakfast ticked all the boxes. Especially of note was the relaxing guest lounge with complimentary tea/coffee/cake/wine, the butchers thick cut bacon for breakfast, the friendly host George and the lovely chocolate lab Ben. We will definitely be back for another stay.

We were made to feel so welcome. Adam the manager could not have been a better host. The location and the building itself exceeded expectations, breakfast was wonderful and nicely set us up for the rest of the day. Thank you to the staff at Te Anau Lodge, we can highly recommend it as a great place to stay.

Large B&B that was a former monastery – moved 100 miles to the TeAnu site. Our room was comfortable, breakfast terrific and we had a great view. B&B had a well-stocked lounge with beverages and yummy desserts and that gave us opportunities to meet with other guests and our hosts. Wonderful grounds and a great location just a short walk...

Te Anau Lodge offers comfort and a warm welcome to travellers. Our room (“The Belfry”) was large with a king bed and a good sized bathroom with a shower.

The Te Anau lodge was one of the highlights of our trip. It starts with George, who makes you feel immediately at home and comfortable. He is kind, generous, and goes out of his way to create a pleasant atmosphere. The location is perfect too, a short drive outside of town, and overlooks the beautiful lake and mountains. We were...
