We were in Blue Cabin, which was well set back from the road linking Te Anau and Milford Sound and had a very relaxing, rural feel to it with view across fields towards lake and mountains. The cabin was spacious and well-equipped. It was also spotlessly clean and comfortable. The charming hostess, Jane, was warm and welcoming, providing delicious home-made...

This is one of the few b and b's in New Zealand we found where you do not stay in the owners house. A separate cottage, purpose built as a bed and breakfast. - And what a view from the cottage!! Would we stay here again? - definitely.. it is not overpriced for what it offers.

Had done a lot of research on places to stay in Te Anau and came across The Croft - what an absolutely delightful place to spend a view days. Easy to find as it is just off the highway to Milford Sound - 2 lovely little cottages nestling on either side of the main house - lovely hostess and the...

We absolutely loved staying in this very private accommodation with incredibly welcoming and friendly hosts- Ross and Jane looked after us very well indeed, we were so comfortable in the beautiful, peaceful blue cottage. After a day of exploring and seeing wonderful views we felt it was hard to beat the stunning view from our bedroom window

The Croft is a very special place. The accommodation is in one of two self contained chalets either side of the owners house. Jane and Ross, the owners, are the most friendly, helpful and charming people to meet. I felt like Jane was an old friend who I was catching up with. The accommodation is stunning. Very private with wonderful...

It was the prospect of seeing Milford Sound that brought us to Te Anau, and we're very glad to have gone out the Milford Road and seen Milford Sound. But our three-night stay in the Blue Cottage was at least as memorable. Meeting Jane and Ross (and their pet sheep Woolly) and staying on their beautiful farm with its views...

We arrived on a flight to Queenstown Airport, picked up a car and drove the two hours to Te Anau. On arrival Jane warmly greeted us and we were shown to the Green Cottage with lovely views down to the lake. The cottage is so sweet, clean and beautifully presented. It was cosy especially when it poured with rain. At...

Of all the B and B's and hotels/motels we stayed at on our 2 and half month trip this was my favorite. The blue cottage was cute, cozy, warm and private. Jane and Ross were absolutely lovely and the views and land are beautiful and peaceful. Enjoyed walking the property with Jane and even got to feed a baby lamb....

I stayed 3 nights in the Blue Cottage. Words can't describe the experience of staying at the Croft. Jane and Ross are such lovely people and really make sure you are taken care of while here. Since each cottage is separate from the main house, you have utmost privacy. There is a microwave, sink and fridge in the unit. The...

Jane and Ross could not have been more friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Green Cottage for two nights and have nothing to say other than it was a delightful experience. Good clean cottage, friendly and helpful hosts and of course the sheep just a few yards away. Highly recommend.
