We have stayed here twice and really love it. The motel units are so clean and really spacious and the beds are very comfy. The staff are so friendly and leant us bug spray when we went on our boat ride and gloves when we went on our jet boat ride as it was cold. It is a great location and we definitely recommend.

Absolutely gorgeous place to stay in one of New Zealand's hidden jewels. So much to do here - needed more time!. Beautifully appointed apartment with the best location right on the lake. Glow worms up and running again which made our stay very special. Kerri was amazing - and helped us with all our booking - nothing beats local knowledge and contact. Will definitely return.

On checking in we felt most welcome and our host, Kerrie was amazing. She gave us a run down on the best places to visit and dine in the area. The units we stayed in were very high spec and extremely comfortable. The views from both units of Lake Te Anau were beautiful. The location is great and an easy walk along the lake front to town. We would highly recommend this motel and we will certainly be returning for a longer holiday next time. Thank you Kerrie and your team for a great time.

Radfords' number one asset was the lady who checked us in and generally looked after us, can't recall her name. Lots of help with local restaurants, attractions, etc. Nothing too much trouble. Large, clean rooms which were very well served with the necessaries. Good self help laundry and some attractive areas that we couldn't make use of, given the weather. Ideal location - you can walk to the pub and the better restaurants are only a short drive away. I'm sure there are other good accommodation options in Te Anau, but we'd just go back to Radfords.

Dear Kevin Thank you so much for your kind words and choosing to stay with us. As you have pointed out, we are just a short scenic walk along the lakefront to all the local cafes, restaurants and attractions. We are delighted you found our service to be top notch, something we strive to offer every guest, along with the cleanliness of our units, and facilities. We look forward to welcoming you back to offer you more of our Southern Hospitality. Kindest Regards Kerri and Steve.
