Radfords would be the nicest motel I have stayed in in NZ. Room was immaculate and the location right on the lakeside with an easy walk into the town. Made the booking, by phone, with Kerri who made me feel welcome long before we even arrived. She recommended a Milford Sound trip to us and booked us in for what was an amazing experience.

The rooms are very well appointed & spacious, the views great, the location so close to the lake and town center...and the list goes on.

Nothing was a bother to Kerri, I was in her office as she welcomed guests, handled phone inquiries and just made everyone feel so welcomed. Thanks so much Kerri.....you are a gem.
Can very highly recommend Radfords on the lake as a great place to stay if in Te Anau. Kerri is a most welcoming and friendly host, we stayed in the beautifully appointed two bedroom unit for three days. Room was immaculately clean, and awesome views out onto the lake. Just a short walk and you are in the centre of town, easy walk to restaurants and shops. Avis

The location is superb with great views over the lake, an easy stroll into the main street, and the all important silence overnight. The beds are very comfortable and daily servicing is to a very high standard. We chose the upstairs larger units together with the…
