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 would give ten stars if possible! Echoing other reviewers, the location is breathtaking, the rooms are ideal & comfortable, and the breakfasts are delicious. At the end of each day, there was even a new treat waiting for us. In addition to the perfect place, Joan and Ross are the very best of the best as hosts. They are a wealth of local information for outings, restaurants, and the area in general. They knew what we needed before we did and were very accommodating. Their warmth and good humor made us feel like we were visiting dear friends. We highly recommended this if you are visiting Te Anau!

A wonderful experience combining luxurious accommodation, unsurpassed views of the lake and mountains and a warm welcome from hosts Joan and Ross (and their cattle). Te Anau has a lovely vibe and the Kepler Trail is on the doorstep for a day’s hike. Thank you!

Superb room with views to die for. The owners who live in the other end of the house are very friendly and can’t do enough to make your stay a wonderful experience. There are two en-suite rooms in this architect designed property. Well away from the road and the town up a private 900 mtr. drive. Ross & Joan were excellent company and made us very welcome.

Our tour company organized our stay at Prospect Lodge. They knew we liked a good view. The view from our room was absolutely spectacular overlooking the lake. We had beautiful and comfortable beds and chairs. Lots of good space for our luggage. Everything was over the top. Including our hosts. Joan and Ross are so attentive to their guests with good recommendations for dinner spots, bike routes and lots of info on the region. The cows grazing beside the property along with the beautiful flowers in their gardens made our stay so very memorable! Thank you both! S & T

The Prospect lodge is an 'architectural' lodge very nice designed and cosy decorated. Beautiful garden with fruittrees overlooking lake Te Anau. Joan and Ross are taking very good care of their guests. As our next location was cancelled and all alternatives were fully booked, Joan and Ross were so sweet to offer their own bedroom to us!. Wow! We spent 3 nights and had a great time. Big thanks. Werner & Elle

My husband and I spent 2 wonderful nights at Prospect Lodge B&B. The view from our window was so very beautiful. The house was perfectly designed with everything we needed to make our stay there unforgettable. Joan and Ross were the perfect hosts. Warm and friendly and accommodating. Joan prepared wonderful breakfasts and there was always a little nighttime treat on the night table. The house is a few miles away from town and was very quiet. I highly Recommend Prospect Lodge to anyone staying in Te Anau.

We spent ten days on a fabulous guided tour. We saw maybe more of New Zealand then many of Frye natives. Our guide Lindsey. Made the trip extra special. He would make reservations for all for dinner saving time at night. He always looked out for us. We were not the youngest group so he had his work cut out. I would definitely recommend a Moa trek tour and if you are able to get Lindsey as yourvguifevitbeoukd be a big bonus

Me and my wife just checked out today from this lovely lodge after spending two nights as part of our honeymoon in New Zealand. The lodge is situated in the midst of breathtaking landscapes and it is 5 minute drive from the town centre. The interiors of the lodge are very elegant and well maintained. Joan and Ross, the hosts, were very welcoming warm and friendly. We enjoyed bonding with them every morning over a delicious breakfast that was made by Joan before heading out to explore Te Anau. Joan was also very helpful in reccomending different places me and my wife could dine in. She was also kind enough to make sure our room was always neat before we arrive from each outing. And the treats left in our room were a thoughtful touch from them! We can't wait to come back and stay in the Prospect Lodge again!

Myself and my husband went to stay in Prospect Lodge for 2 nights during a recent trip to New Zealand for our honeymoon. Before getting to Prospect Lodge we had been staying in hotels and so it was a wonderful change to stay in a B&B. This place is a couple of minutes drive outside of a lovely little place called Te Anau. From the moment we arrived Joan and Ross were very welcoming. They were kind and chilled and we instantly felt relaxed. The lodge itself is wonderful and the views from it are simply stunning. Joan makes a yummy breakfast so you won’t be leaving the place hungry. We would have loved to have gotten to stay even one more night if we could. Hopefully we can get back again in the future as this really was a wonderful little find in a lovely spot. Would highly recommend.
