The Croft is a very special place. The accommodation is in one of two self contained chalets either side of the owners house. Jane and Ross, the owners, are the most friendly, helpful and charming people to meet. I felt like Jane was an old friend who I was catching up with. The accommodation is stunning. Very private with wonderful...

It was the prospect of seeing Milford Sound that brought us to Te Anau, and we're very glad to have gone out the Milford Road and seen Milford Sound. But our three-night stay in the Blue Cottage was at least as memorable. Meeting Jane and Ross (and their pet sheep Woolly) and staying on their beautiful farm with its views...

We arrived on a flight to Queenstown Airport, picked up a car and drove the two hours to Te Anau. On arrival Jane warmly greeted us and we were shown to the Green Cottage with lovely views down to the lake. The cottage is so sweet, clean and beautifully presented. It was cosy especially when it poured with rain. At...

Of all the B and B's and hotels/motels we stayed at on our 2 and half month trip this was my favorite. The blue cottage was cute, cozy, warm and private. Jane and Ross were absolutely lovely and the views and land are beautiful and peaceful. Enjoyed walking the property with Jane and even got to feed a baby lamb....

I stayed 3 nights in the Blue Cottage. Words can't describe the experience of staying at the Croft. Jane and Ross are such lovely people and really make sure you are taken care of while here. Since each cottage is separate from the main house, you have utmost privacy. There is a microwave, sink and fridge in the unit. The...

Jane and Ross could not have been more friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Green Cottage for two nights and have nothing to say other than it was a delightful experience. Good clean cottage, friendly and helpful hosts and of course the sheep just a few yards away. Highly recommend.

We booked the green cottage and were not disappointed. Being just 5 minutes from town it's an excellent base to explore the area. Breakfast is plentiful and is served in the main house next to the green cottage. Breakfast time is also a great moment to chat with the hosts Jane and Ross about life in NZ.

My partner and I loved our stay in the Blue cottage. We were impressed by the wonderful views, aesthetics of the cottage and very comfy bed. Also, the hosts are lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality. The facilities are adequate (sink, microwave, fridge) given the yummy breakfast provided and plenty of places to eat in town. We do hope...

Thinking of the experience that we had in this wonderful place, make me want to go book and travel in there once more. We actually came a little late because we kept on stopping from Christchurch to Te Anau. Well, can't help it! Along the way are those majestic views that I can now see from my own eyes! When...

The Croft is a self contained cottage located on a farm. It's got a rural relaxed feel which is still very private. The cabin is very warm, cozy but also spacious with a comfortable sitting area and kitchenette. Breakfast options available are both a continental and cooked and served at a time of your choosing. If you like pets, there's...
