Staying with Doug and Linda was like staying with family - a real home from home. They are so warm, friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful home in a truly stunning location. Everything was spotlessly clean and very high quality. Breakfasts were to die for and with a stunning view thrown in. The rooms were very tastefully...

What a warm welcome and a very pleasant stay we had here, all credits for Doug and Linda. The private rooms we hade were very comfortable, we could even stay in the living room chatting with D&L or just to sit down, have a glas of wine and enjoy the views. The views are absolutely amazing and breakfast is a...

We really enjoyed our stay. It was more like staying with friends than with strangers. Thanks to their warm welcome and their hospitality. House is lovely and the site spectacular. The breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit salad and Banana Muffins. We enjoyed talking with Linda and Doug. And we can only recommend this B&B and would like to come...

As many have stated on TA, Doug and Linda are absolutely fabulous. We let them know we were coming in very late and they were absolutely gracious about it. The moment we walked in they offered us hot drinks, cookies and some great conversation. Their house and property were pristine and gorgeous. If it's possible even better than the pictures....

Reviewed 22 October 2016

Doug and Linda are retired farmers and keen horse riders, and Doug continues to apply his skills on the neighbouring 100 acre property. In a sense this is a combination of homestay and farmstay, and they made us feel so very much at home. This was a homestay more than a B&B and we were so welcome in their home,...

When guests interests have a lot in common with your own being a good host is easy. You are welcome back anytime.

The room was very comfortable with fantastic views. The hosts were so friendly and managed to sort out our own problems very efficiently. They gave us great advice on eating and travelling. They knew the road to Milford Sound was blocked (rock fall), and let us know when it reopened. They arranged an idyllic boat trip for us there. We...

Thank you very much. At the risk of being repetitious it is always easy to host nice guests as they make our job enjoyable. We hope you enjoyed the rest of the South Island

We stayed 2 nights there. Doug and Lynda make you feel like home. You can enjoy family moments and at the same time have your own privacy. It was hard to leave them. The house is very clean and modern. Well situated from the city centre and it's the closest accommodation you can here on Milford sound.

We had a lovely stay with Linda and Doug. The view on the mountains is gorgeous, the room is comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Be aware that the toilets and bathroom are in the corridor, we did not mind but some people might. We will come back for sure if we have the chance!

We stayed with Doug and Linda at 23 Paton for two nights on our recent visit to New Zealand. It was a fantastic stay, we'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a very comfortable and welcoming place while in Te Anau! The room was very comfortable, with amazing views. The bathrooms were down the hall (but private) and huge...

Doug and Linda are lovely and welcoming hosts and served a wonderful breakfast. I agree with the other reviewers about how delicious the muffins are as well! The rooms and bathrooms are beautiful and clean, and the views are gorgeous. I especially loved the panoramic view from the breakfast dining table. The bedrooms both have views to the mountain and...
