Excellent accommodation in the heart of town”

An excellent option for travelers using Te Anau as a base to visit Milford Sound. Our two bedroom apartment was incredibly spacious and well stocked with basic kitchen amenities (but not equipped with full kitchen amenities) but was adequate given how much we paid. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom has a rather interesting design that partitions the sink, shower, and toilet. My only (minor) critique is that the sink had separate faucets for hot and cold water, which was rather outdated. We would suggest updating it with a single faucet to moderate the temperature. Regardless, the owners were incredibly friendly and helpful, suggesting many activities in the area. Overall, a great option and would highly recommend it!

Mary is a great host - friendly and helpful with local activities and bookings. The room was great with super comfy bed and lots of space. Short walk to town and the lake.
