My husband & I stayed for one night at Radfords last month. Warmly greeted by Kerri who couldn't have been more welcoming & helpful. The room was very clean & well equipped with extra little touches to aid our stay. If we return to Te Anau we'd definitely stay longer than one night & would recommend to family & friends.

If you have a special occasion, or want to make it a special occasion, this is the BEST PLACE IN TE ANAU to make it happen. Kerrie & Steve are perfectionists, from Gardens, to facilities, to the smallest of touches like treats in room (candles & chocolates as a few of many), these two just go out of their way to blow your mind. The place is immaculate. It’s handy to town. What more can one say. We’ll be back. Thanks so much for making our engagement unreal. Jenna & Ants

Radfords on the Lake well exceeded our expectations. All the staff were amazingly helpful and the rooms are beautifully appointed with many pleasant surprises. Nothing can be faulted with everything exceptional, from the comfortable beds, beautiful decor, immaculately clean rooms through to the manicured gardens. Let alone the superb views of the lake. We would have stayed longer if we knew ahead of time what a gem this motel is. The team has set a very high bar for others to follow. Thank you again for your southern hospitality.
