The location was right outside town, very pretty with a nice backyard. There’s also a washer and dryer and a clothesline, our clothes dried in five minutes. It was just my husband and I but this was really a house not an apartment with four bedrooms I believe and two or three bathrooms. I was a little disappointed even though they put some miscellaneous food in the refrigerator -jar of peaches, some white bread in freezer, dry cereal And other items that were non perishable. I was disappointed that it didn’t come with a breakfast per se. It’s about a five minute drive if that from the main Lodge so it would’ve been nice if they came with a basket of fresh breads and muffins or even eggs. They could’ve left it outside the door in the morning. For a large family it would be perfect. But for my husband and I it was a little awkard. The house was spotless, beds comfortable and furnishing more than adequate.

We stayed in this beautiful B&B in January, our host Dawn was extremely helpful. Our suite was very comfortable and the breakfast and treat in the room were both delicious. Ifwe ever return to Te Anau, we would definitely want stay there again. Highlight was the helicopter landing in the garden whilst we were having breakfast, unfortunately not for us!!

Thank you for reviewing us. I do remember the helicopter landing and wishing it was taking everyone for a flight. Take care during Cov19, we go in to complete shutdown tonight.

Great location, stunning views, beautiful room, outstanding breakfast, nothing too much trouble - organised dinner reservations and anything else we needed. Probably the best B&B we have ever stayed in.

We only stayed the one night at Dock Bay Lodge on the way to Doubtful Sound. We wish we could have stayed longer. A very luxurious BandB about 10 minutes outside of Te Anau. The bedroom was large with a comfortable bed, big bathroom and a private sitting area. The host was extremely helpful and friendly and the cooked breakfast was very good. We highly recommend this BandB.

Hubby and I spent 2 nights here and I thought it was wonderful. Situated 5 minutes out of town but easy to find. Our suite of rooms had dual aspects and was super spacious and our lovely big bed was very comfortable indeed. All mini bar contents including a bottle of wine of your choice are complimentary which was a unique and lovely touch, as were some little cakes provided each evening for those with a sweet tooth! Extensive breakfast choices and everything was fresh and tasty. And with superb views from the dining table overlooking the beautiful garden and the lake, it felt quite a privilege..... Dawn was just lovely. After a day’s travelling it was just the best news to hear on arrival that she had made a dinner reservation for us at the best restaurant in town. So thoughtful. And when the transport arrangements fell through for getting into town for our trip to Milford Sound ( which was lovely by the way) she immediately offered to drop us in herself. And even provided bug spray when we had none. Simply above and beyond! Thank you so much Dawn. If I could have awarded a six, I would have!
