We stayed in this top of the range, beautiful and beautifully maintained motel, situated just across from the lake for seven nights from 19 - 24 January 2022. On arrival we were met by Kerri, co-owner, and mine host extraordinaire. Kerri, is warm, welcoming and professional as well. She knows everything worth doing in Te Anau and indeed most of Fiordland. She had great suggestions where to eat locally and had we not already booked most of the tours we wanted to do, had a huge list to suggest for those to. A particular note about Keri's professionalism and discretion - one of the cruises we did was to Doubtful Sound (an overnight cruise with Southern Secret - superb). When we arrived for that cruise, we discovered that two of the others on board were staying in the unit just

We stayed as a family recently for a couple nights while in the beautiful Te Anau. I was so impressed with the cleanliness of the unit and the attention to detail, designed to make us feel welcome and taken care of. The host was so helpful, the gardens exquisite and the beds super comfortable! I highly recommend and would be back in a heartbeat.

Sparkling clean, modern room with spacious bathroom and small kitchen located across the road from the lake and walking distance to Te Anau's main street. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Black out curtains and modern furnishing. The lady at the reception was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and advised us where to stop and what to see along Milford Road. Radcliff restaurant is very good. This motel has a beautiful bbq area with 2 large bbqs and high tables with bar stools. If we ever come back, we'll make sure to use it.

Top rated stay at Radfords! This is by far the best place to stay in Te Anau from what I could see! The apartments are beautifully appointed with such attention to detail! They are all lake facing and the out door areas are beautiful including an immaculate bbq area! The host was friendly and helpful!
