Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A very comfortable place to stay with a beautiful view just a few minutes out of Te Anau and well worth the drive. Host Phil made great suggestions and was a pleasure to spend time with. An easy place to relax with other guests or on your own. Only wishlist item - the room's patio door is the only source of fresh air & it would be nice to have a way to leave it safely open partway while sleeping & a screendoor to stop bugs.

Host Phil made our stay very good, aiding us with walks, meals out and local hospitality. He works very hard to make your stay very good. Location with the lake view is spectacular. You won't regret staying

We spent 2 nights in this place and the location facing the Te Anau Lake was gorgeous and the well-kept garden with nice flowers . We were welcomed by Phil, our landlord, who is very friendly and helpful : he gave us very interesting advices on the places we can visit and the things we can do around Te Anau. We also enjoyed a lot the breakfast in the living room overlooking the lake - such a beautiful view - and chating with Phil. Also, even when we were coming back late in the evening, Phil was waiting for us, which is mostly unusual but that we appreciated. We recommend this accommodation.

Loch Vista Villa is about a 5 minute drive from central Te Anau. It situated on a hill with a fabulous view of the lake and surrounding mountains. We did a tour of the Milford Sound and the tour company picked us up at Loch Vista, super convenient. The owner, Phil, is a great host. This is a traditional B&B, you're in a house with other guests, sharing breakfast at the table, etc. If you don't want to interact with anyone, then this is not the place for you. It is very clean and comfortable, although we were there approaching winter and it was a bit cool in our room - but there was a space heater provided. Each room has it's own television and you can get Netflix. The main lounge has a nice wood burning stove. The continental breakfast was very nice. There is tea/coffee available whenever you want it. Phil is very knowledgable about the area and has lots of information about local activities.

If you came to NZ for quietness and close contact with nature this B&B should be yours! 10 min drive from Te Anau on the way to Milford Sound. Brand new wooden house with the latest confort requirements. Splendid view over Te Anau lake through large window bays. . Very friendly and discret owner. Good bedding. Large living room. Home made fruit salad for breakfast. The only personal little critic is the continental breakfast with no eggs and bacon despite the large well equipped kitchen room. For sure we will come back.

What should have been a leisurely 3 hour drive from Queenstown turned into an 11 hour slog through floods, rockfalls and landslides. Throughout our journey our host, Phil, remained a calming presence keeping in constant touch and, in gathering darkness, greeted us with a smile and soothing hot drink. The views the accommodation offers are unsurpassed, with mountains and lakes providing a wonderful backdrop to a splendid breakfast. Iain Woods and Sherri Dewsbery

The best part about this hotel was the interaction with the staff. They provided excellent customer service! I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We ran into some unexpected issues with Real Journeys cancelling our glow worm cave tour last minute and Phil worked with us and handled the situation like a true professional.

My wife & I arrived well before check in which was no problem for the proprietor Phil. He welcomed us in with a cup of tea, coffee & biscuits, along with all the local knowledge & help about Te Anau we could hope for! Our room had a beautiful view of the lake and more than met expectations.

Disclaimer: we don’t normally stay in small B and B’s but the reviews described this as a lodge with five stars so we took a chance. It's a small house with three bedrooms, small kitchen and living room. View of lake to be sure, but lots of road noise although being elevated on a hill you don't actually see the road. Breakfast: three types of store-bought cereal, a small container of yougurt for a couple to share, a small communal bowl of diced applies, organge and maybe one other fruit, toast, two instant coffees and a plunger although the coffee was unspecified. Note that most of the reviews are years old; I suspect guests are unhappy but the owner is such a nice guy (and he no doubt is) that they don't leave reviews. I should've looked at the dates of reviews closer. Honest reviews are what makes Trip Advisor useful
