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. She recommended restaurants, cafes etc. Definitely a 5* experience all round.

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. However it was the wonderful friendly relaxed professional service that Kerri and her staff provide that really made my stay so enjoyable. 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.

Sadly genuine Kiwi hospitality is fast becoming a scarce entity in our major tourism hotspots. We were appalled to hear that many of the accomodation sites in Te Anau have owners residing in a very large country east of Suez. However Radfords on the Lake is owned and operated by a delightful Kiwi duo, Kerri and Steve together with the star attraction, "Dexter Dude" the sealpoint Ragdoll cat.
Other reviewers have fairly described Radfords; spacious, pristine units, well maintained with up to date amenities. 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 breakfast option and would highly recommend this combination to to others. We greatly appreciated the upgrade! Small touches like the nightly Whittakers chocolates and access to a spotless guest laundry are clearly the reason this motel is No.1 on Tripadvisor!

We wanted to visit Milford and Doubtful Sounds and were grateful for the excellent advice given by Kerri. The operators she recommended were universally excellent- we came away feeling as though we had a great overview of Fiordland and in keeping with all good, travels, thoughts turned to return visits! Kerri was very helpful with restaurant advice and local information; you will not find a better ambassador for New Zealand tourism and this lady should be given an award by those who run the organisation! Always available, always cheerful and helpful!
We thoroughly enjoyed our four days at ROTL and will return. If you don't stay here when visiting Te Anau, then you are doing yourself a disservice! Well done Kerri, Steve, Dexter and all of the team at Radfords

Dear Drurolnz,

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay and for your lovely comments.

We really enjoy hosting and sharing our local knowledge with our guests so we are delighted that you have had a great overview of Fiordland. It was an absolute pleasure to host you both and we would love the opportunity to have you stay again - there is still plenty more that Fiordland has on offer for your next trip.

Kindest regards,
Kerri & Steve James
