We stayed in the Green cottage, such a quiet peaceful setting with a great view of the hills. There was ample space for us to relax in, even the cat Peny had space on the deck. The breakfast was outstanding with homemade jam and fresh poached fruit, and eggs cooked to your liking. The bathroom is a large wet room with no steps in to the shower. Both Ross and Jane were perfect hosts where nothing was too much trouble.
We had a 3 day stay here and everything was perfect. We were greeted by Jane who showed us to our charmingly decorated cabin; large enough for three. Each of the two cabins has a bay window, looking through well-tended gardens to the sheep paddock and Lake Te Anau beyond. The cabins were well built by Ross and contain everything you need for your stay with a efficient barbeque at the back, microwave. TV and stereo and there were always a couple of vases of cut flowers! It was fun to watch the sheep on walks through grounds. We couldn't praise the breakfasts highly enough. There is lots of delicious cereals, Jane's stewed fruit or freshly picked berries, yoghurt, toast and egg cooked to your requirements and Jane's apricot jam is the best you'll ever taste. Jane and Ross will…
We spent two nights at The Croft in order to visit Doubtful Sound. Our day out at the Sound was great but, in all honesty, we could have happily spent the whole time just enjoying this lovely b&b. The green cottage was clean, crisp, comfy and flooded with light with a lovely window seat to gaze at the fabulous view. You can stroll from your door straight down to the lake. Breakfast was superb. Wish we’d had an extra day. Thank you too Jane for the tip re stopping off at Nugget Point en route to Dunedin. We’d have missed a real treat otherwise.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place slightly outside of Te Anau on the road to Milford Sound. The cottage had a very nice size and almost everything you might need (and if anything was "missing", you could ask Jane for it and she'd sort it out immediately). Unfortunately we didn't have as much time as needed to discover more of Fiordland aside from Milford, but if we have the chance to come back, we will make sure to stay at the Croft again.
Rarely does one find a place during a long travel that truly feels like home, but Jane, owner of The Croft in Te Anau has definitely created one. The lovely cottage (blue) that we had for four days in November was cozy, clean, with a beautiful view of the sheep pasture and lake. We were greeted every morning and night by our lamb neighbors. We had stimulating conversations at breakfast with guests from all over the world at Jane's dinner table. This certainly was the best choice for us.
