We weren't quite shaw what to think about this accommodation when we arrived. We were shown through the lodge and given a brief history of the building and where to find everything and where breakfast was going to be served. The room was meticulously clean and the bed was super comfortable. The next morning we met Karl who was super...

All looks nice and cosy in the main house of the Te Anau Lodge: old wooden furnitures, lovely library with free drinks and cakes. And therefore we had booked this accomodation. Unfortunately the owner put us into the Bishops Retreat which is in a small hut outside the main building. Maybe for some it is more intimate, but you could...

This is a lovely place to stay a relaxing lodge where you are made to feel at home. It is very interesting to read about its history. Lovely breakfast with home made muffins every morning. Just a short walk to town. Enjoy

The library in the main building has an upstairs deck area where you can enjoy the history, the ambience and the views. You can also have afternoon tea here which...

This is a lovely place to stay in Te Anau. It was an old convent that was moved to Te Anau. It has character and each room is different. The room rate includes breakfast and an afternoon tea/happy hour in the library. The staff is helpful and kind. There are stairs and no elevator but the staff is most helpful...

This is our second visit to the lodge and I have to say we enjoyed ourselves even more this time. Karl and Lynnley were delightful hosts. The Convent has been lovingly restored and much of the originalality can be seen in every room. The Vestry room is spacious and comfortable with wonderful views over the grounds. While not all rooms...

The history of the lodge is interesting. It is well-told in a photograph album in the lounge. We stayed in the Belfry, a pleasant room with a stunning view. The hospitality was warm. The lounge was smart, spacious and delightful to sit in. Guests were quite chatty as the atmosphere was homely. People were genuinely affected by the calm, quiet...

Perfect stay. We were being upgraded from Mother Superior room to VESTRY ROOM with great view in the morning because we are only the guest for that day. Having the whole lodge for ourselve was a great experience. Mr Karl homemade carrot cake was great.

Hi bibie2152 So lovely to hear from you now that your holiday is over. It was nice to have you stay with us when the Lodge was quite quiet and we can spend extra time looking after guests and most often are able to give them a free upgrade as there rooms available to do so. Kind regards Karl Lamb
