We stayed two nights at this beautifully situated Lodge with glorious views to Te Anau Lake and the surrounding country. Our rooms were very comfortable with all the necessary amenities. Hosts, Joan and Ross, were a delight and it was a real pleasure to be so well looked after by them - not least at breakfast. Joan helpfully pointed us...

The Prospect Lodge was just perfect in every way. My husband and I had one room, our adult son had the other. Set on a hill in Te Anau. The views of the lake and surrounding mountains are stunning. Rooms are incredibly well-appointed and beautiful, as are the baths. Joan's breakfasts were delicious! I can't imagine a nicer place to...

Our room at the lodge was fantastic. It was clean, has high ceilings, amazing views of the lake and mountains, brand new amenities, and much more. It was as if you were staying in a luxury hotel. Furthermore, the proprietors are one of the nicest couples I have ever met. From offering to do our laundry to home made breakfasts...

The Prospect Lodge is exceedingly comfortable and welcoming thanks to its hosts. It is located five to ten minutes from town and a few minutes from major access points to the Kepler Track. The setting is quite beautiful, the rooms well-appointed/comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was very good, and Joan was accommodating. Te Anau is, of course, a great launching point...

We just had 2 special nights here. The setting is majestic. Wonderful warmth and hospitality from Joan and Ross. A perfect place to use as a base for Milford Sound. Can't recommend it highly enough. Joan was very helpful in recommending tour options and restaurants in Te Anau.

This is a magnificent guest house, the views are awe inspiring, and good hospitality. The rooms are lovely, well appointed, bed comfy, but you keep being drawn back to the views. Joan is a great host, very friendly, and on our second night she prepared a wonderful platter for us, which made for a lovely evening. Thank you, we would...

We stayed at the Prospect Lodge after finishing a 3-day tramp on the Kepler Track. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place to relax and unwind in luxury.

The beauty of the view over Fiordland and the kindness as well as the discretion of the hosts Joan and Ross are remarkable. The lodge is decorated with exceptional taste. The garden is beautiful on the right of the room area and the breakfast is very tasty, healthy and neatly presented. We were invited for an apéro in the living...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Prospect Lodge is owned by Ross & Joan Cockburn from Mt Prospect Station and the former Mt Prospect High Country Homestay. Following the loss of their well known homestead to fire in 2007, Ross & Joan have rebuilt on their farmland overlooking Lake Te Anau. This new lodge, opened in 2011, continues to offer the same fantastic service and luxurious comfort offered previously, only situated on a ridge overlooking Lake Te Anau, the Te Anau township and the mountains of Fiordland, a view that takes your breath away. With two beautifully appointed guest rooms with lake views and private terraces, en-suite bathrooms and luxury bedding, the Lodge is a fabulous place to base yourself while visiting Milford or Fiordland. ... more   less
