First motel we have stayed in that made us feel reluctant to go out. Would have been easy to spend the night in, nestled in the comfort of our lakeside room with a good view of the lake. Quality furnishings throughout, with everything you could possible need including the stunning communal barbeque area. The attention to detail extends from the high level of cleanliness of the rooms to the well maintained gardens and grounds. Kerri and her staff clearly understand hospitality and go above and beyond to make you feel at home. Their tips and recommendations on activities and dining experiences (easy walking distance to town) helped to take our stay in Te Anau to the next level. Sadly we were only staying the one night, looking forward to making it a little longer next time.

We chose Radford’s on the Lake for one of our recommended places to stay while in Te Anau for our wedding! Kerri & Steve are hosts who go above & beyond & nothing is ever a problem. The rooms are 5 star comfort & the spa bath in the room is relaxing heaven! They have thought of everything from lavender scented pillow bags, lake views, communal areas and superb knowledge of the area they are more than willing to share with guests! If your looking for a place with zen & that brings you all the comforts you can dream of, with smiles and greetings like not other, then don’t look any further! Worth every cent you won’t be disappointed! We will be back!

Radfords would be the nicest motel I have stayed in in NZ. Room was immaculate and the location right on the lakeside with an easy walk into the town. Made the booking, by phone, with Kerri who made me feel welcome long before we even arrived. She recommended a Milford Sound trip to us and booked us in for what was an amazing experience. She recommended restaurants, cafes etc. Definitely a 5* experience all round.

Can very highly recommend Radfords on the lake as a great place to stay if in Te Anau. Kerri is a most welcoming and friendly host, we stayed in the beautifully appointed two bedroom unit for three days. Room was immaculately clean, and awesome views out onto the lake. Just a short walk and you are in the centre of town, easy walk to restaurants and shops.
