Our stay at Radfords on the Lake was a pleasant one. Kerri was very welcoming, and happily gave us great advice on local activities and spots to eat. Our room was sparkling clean, beautifully presented and smelt amazing. We would highly recommend staying when visiting Te Anau. It was the perfect spot for us to stay before and after our drive to Milford Sound.
