We spent 4 wonderful nights here. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The cottage exceeded our pretty high expectations - we didn’t want to leave! 10/10 for cleanliness and facilities. So cosy and the mountain views are amazing. We’ll very happily stay here again when we’re visiting Te Anau. We were delighted with this place!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at Blue Thistle Cottages. Rachel was a lovely hostess and we had lovely chats with her about the local area. The cottage was spotlessly clean and country comfortable (the picture of the bed was what made me choose this place and it didn't disappoint). I loved the animals in the paddock right next door and the views of the mountains from the kitchen were spectacular. It was quiet and peaceful and close to town. Would highly recommend this place and go back there when visting Te Anau again. Jenny and Mike Christchurch
Had an absolutely lovely stay. The cottage was clean and furbished really well, with all the amenities to be fully self contained. Had a lovely welcome from the owner when we arrived, and enjoyed the beautiful views from our cottage. It's also only a few minutes drive from the centre of Te Anau so a great location, but quiet and peaceful too. Really well priced for what was included, only wish we could have stayed longer.
Blue Thistle Cottage was a delightful place to stay offering excellent, clean and comfortable facilities. From our cottage we had a partial view of Lake Te Anau and relaxing countryside. Close to the great eateries on offer in Te Anau and on the road directly leading to Milford Sound. We would certainly return to Blue Thistle Cottages and can highly recommend it!
Great communication. Lovely cottage with nice homely touches - being able to wrap up in warm dressing gowns after a cold day exploring was perfect! Amazing views of the snowy peaks opposite. Quiet, peaceful spot a few minutes out of town.
The cottage and Owner was really nice. When we went out for the evening the owner we came back to find the outside light turned on for us and the heaters on to make our stay the bit better. The cottages are just outside town so you can appreciate the night sky and the quiet of being away from traffic and other people.
We stayed here a few nights two years ago but came back this year for seven nights. It's very comfortable, clean and quiet -- and the service was perfect and personal. We love the farm setting and that it's a short drive out of Te Anau. It's very peaceful and makes for great stargazing. It was an ideal base for us to explore the area and take advantage of all the great day hikes.
Absolutely beautiful spot with lovely hosts. Great attention to detail, cleanliness and soooo well thought out!!!! Such nice people, even gave us a card and chocolates when they heard about our recent marriage 🙂 would highly recommend.
Stayed maybe 5 years ago and still fabulous. Very clean, so well appointed and amazing value. Private and some thoughtful touches with plenty of space. Highly recommended and will certainly stay again.
A five minute drive (if that) out of Te Anau means you can have a exceptionally quiet nights sleep. Large cottages with cooking facilitates, large bathrooms, comfortable bed and bedding, and numerous tv channels should you just want to blob. You’ll need a car to stay here. Highly recommended.
