In April, I was part of a large group travelling to New Zealand from the US. We booked every room in the Radford's on the Lake for our stay in Te Anau. Kerri, the manager, was incredibly helpful during the booking process and she arranged to have as many rooms as possible available for early check in. The rooms were...

My wife and I stayed at Radfords last month and this was the last leg of our two week tour on the western coast of the South Island. The facility was one of the best we had stayed in during our tour and was so good that we extended for an additional night rather than overnight in Queenstown prior to...

We spent 4 nights here recently, and commented to management on the cleanliness and service - faultless. There are great views of the lake from the first floor balcony and it is a hop, skip and jump to the lake foreshore, and an easy walk into town. We appreciated returning to made up and aired rooms (and mint chocolate) and...

Overall value is very poor. While clean, and efficient service, it is a motor motel, along a street with several motor hotels. Price paid rather steep for what you receive. On the positive side it is within walking distance of main Te Anau restaurants, but would suggest a different experience while in Fiordlands

Kerri, you & the team do a fantastic job of making a stay here so enjoyable. Immaculate & clean presentation & just as it should be. Completing our Doubtful Sound bookings so it went off without a hitch was most appreciated. Our 2nd stay with you & will be back. Thank you once again.

We had a lovely 3 day stay here. Area and rooms quiet, double glazing helps. Upon arrival noticed that the gardens were immaculately tended and the surrounds were neat and tidy. Warm welcome and Kerrie showed us to our room. Fresh milk offered on checkin. Room spotless and kept very clean over our stay. Amenities good, nice towels and linen,...

From the outside, this property looks like a standard motel. Once you step inside, you see the quality in which you are paying for. The views of the lake are breath taking and the kitchenettes seem to have everything you need. Things like the bathroom fixtures and showers are a little on the basic side, but manageable and in good...

We spent 3 nights in Te Anau at Radfords on the Lake. We wanted to be closer to take Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound tours rather than taking a super long day trip from Queenstown.
