Wonderful accommodation at Radfords between the Great walks hikes.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Apr 2024via mobile
What a great decision to stay at Radfords on the Lake while I was based in Te Anau walking the three Great Walks - Milford, Kepler and Routeburn. Kerri was most helpful storing our excess bags while we were away hiking. These were in our room awaiting our arrival on our return. We appreciated the use of the laundry facilities to wash our hiking gear before the next hike.
The rooms we had were beautifully clean, well appointed and the beds super comfortable. We really did enjoy the hot showers after our hikes. The location was perfect and within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants. Tracknet buses picked us up from a few metres from the Motel which was convenient as well.
Thank you Kerri. If we are ever down in Te Anau again we’ll definitely stay with you again.

Kerri is an excellent host. She seems to be always there! The suite was lovely. Clean, plenty of room. The continental breakfast was refreshed each day. It was easy to walk anywhere in town, and to the kayaking place. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Radford’s. Our accommodation was very comfortable and well- equipped, with a lovely view of the lake. Kerri was an amazing host. Her local knowledge was invaluable. We had a great time on the tours that she recommended, and her instructions on how and when to get there were spot-on. Her suggestions regarding local eateries were greatly appreciated too. Thank you so much for your hospitality and your help Kerri.

Just had an amazing 2 nights at this beautiful place. The location is stunning with views over the lake. Patio doors lead out onto patio area or balcony. Parking right outside. Easy walk to town. Our welcome was warm and inviting. Room was pristine. Could have eaten off the floor. Beautiful decor. I felt like I was at home. Every detail thought out. Fresh milk, tea/coffee. Chocolates. Bathroom products. Loved the compostable shower cap. Dishwasher, 2 ring hob, kettle, toaster, microwave. Access to laundry facilities. Could have stayed longer. Dexter, the rag doll, wandered in when we arrived and settled on the bed between the pillows. He showed no sign of wanting to leave and when we got back he’d moved to the sofa under the heater. Such a character. Can’t recommend Radfords highly enough.

We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay at Radfords. Our room faced the road and beach - no traffic noise at night. The room was clean, attractive, nice linens, very easy to walk to the beach or into town! Our cooktop did not work - within minutes Kerri found a hot plate for us to use! If we are able to return to NZ we would stay at Radfords again in a heartbeat!!

Delighted with the position of the accommodation ideally positioned for the lake and its facilities with an excellent choice of restaurants and cafés within a short walk.

As far as the welcome, service and genuine friendliness we would rank this higher than other similar types of accommodation.

The decor and quality of furnishings were first class with a well thought out array of tech devices for travellers.
We enjoyed restful sleep in the very comfortable bed.

Good advice was given freely for recommendations and we enjoyed many of those restaurants and the nearby seaplane.

Well done to the proprietors and their staff for giving their all to our holiday.

Room tip: Book the Seaplane before you stay. Ask for recommendations for the local restaurants and cafés from the proprietor.
