Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in Cabbage Tree Home for 2 nights in Feb 2013 when my parents and grandpa came out to visit from the UK. It was an ideal base from which to do our Doubtful Sound day trip and only a 5 minute drive to the main shops and restaurants in Te Anau. The house was clean, cosy and well furnished - we really had no complaints. Sallie, the owner, was helpful and friendly to deal with. I would definitely recommend this bach to others and would love to stay here again.

We had a fantastic time at Manapouri Lodge. It was very spacious and comfortable. Superb living area and kitchen. The kitchen was very well equipped. Very clean, nice bathrooms and good wifi although we didn't use it much! It was in a very good location and was very peaceful.

We spent two nights at Manapouri Lodge from the 22nd to the 24th of December 2013. We used this place as a starting point for a tour at Milford Sound and were really sad about not having chosen to stay longer in this beautiful house and the excellent area around.
The furnishings and fittings in the house are brand new. I loved the king room with a bathroom en suite everything very modern but still cosy. Everything was spotlessly clean. The house has an inviting fireplace. We immediately felt at home. From almost everywhere in the house you have views to the mountains.
When we went on we forgot some clothes of the girls and Sally kindly sent it to us at once. I recommend this house without hesitation.
Kind regards to Sally and thank you once again.

The rooms aren't sound proof, you could just hear the people talking and walking next door. Next to that, the heater is small and doesn't work properly at all. The tv has 9 channels which all reality series focussed without any channel for the Olympic games or movies!

I can only gather that you stayed at our Budget Accommodation in Manapouri - Classic Cottage, as this is the only home that could fit your description? You are quite correct. Classic Cottage is a small budget traditional bach without SKY TV (the channels are those that everyone without sky tv receive) - and advertised as such. The neighbours are an elderly quiet couple, and a chef away for two weeks at a time so hearing your neighbours is quite an achievement considering it is a stand alone house. You would perhaps have been more comfortable in one of my upmarket contemporary homes - SKY, soundproof walls, wifi, modern facilities - those homes being priced accordingly. Classic Budget Cottage has recently had the welcome addition of complimentary WIFI and a Heat Pump installed, so is an even more cosy home for those who wish to book budget family friendly accommodation. All advertising text and photos portray honestly and openly the home as it is.

The cottage was lovely and equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, dryer - basically all we could need. There was stuff to do on rainy days and the cottage was clean and comfortable. It had a nice bathroom and all in all we were really happy there.

We had a great stay at Sunglow Cottage in Te Anau for four nights with our family in mid January. Te Anau was the final destination of a five week long trip through the country with stays at numerous baches, hotels and camp grounds. Sunglow Cottage turned out to be everyone's favourite place. Cute, cosy, unpretentious and with a lot of light, it was the ideal place to come and relax. Have barbies and nice meals on the sunny deck, or just chill out on the Queen double bed all afternoon with a book. We wanted to take the little house back with us when returning home. The house is in walking distance to lake Te Anau and town. Landlady was very easy to deal with, had provided a lot of information and was very friendly. We definitely recommend this place. Great value for money.

We stayed two nights at the Heritage House and it was a thoroughly enjoyable. The kids loved it and the views of the lake and the mountains are breath taking. The house is well appointed with all that is required for a family. Sallie was very helpful with organising the bus tour to Milford Sound and the cruise.

We would love to come back.
