Our family of three stayed here for two nights over Easter (not long enough) The lodge is beautiful and has been tastefully restored. Well worth understanding it's interesting history. We had a warm greeting from our host who was informative and super helpful throughout our stay. Our room was upstairs and sun streamed in. We had a view over the expansive lawn and beyond that of the stunning scenery. Our room was clean and warm and OMG the biggest and most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. In the evenings we enjoyed a complementary drink in the library From Te Anau Lodge is an easy flat walk into town. I highly recommend Te Anau Lodge, the service was amazing and it is hands down better than a generic hotel. I would urge any Kiwi who has not visited this part of the country to come and enjoy the unspoiled beauty especially during COVID with fewer tourists and in the process support the small businesses.

We had a wonderful night at the Te Anau Lodge, although we stayed in the ensuite room, called the Bishop’s Retreat. This was ideal, so not to disturb the other guests in the lodge, as we were leaving early the next morning to do the Milford sound cruise. Our host, Suzy, was amazing! She baked us some delicious muffins for afternoon tea and we enjoyed a glass of wine and a beer on the balcony, before dinner. The lodge is in walking distance to the beautiful lake Te Anau.

This has to be the quirkiest place I’ve stayed in, but also the most fun! Te Ana’s Lodge has normal rooms within the lodge, but I’d recommend staying in the converted train carriage instead. It’s been beautifully fitted out, with lots of in-character features. We enjoyed playing records while we ate our breakfast or bathed in the massive bath. The indoor space is huge and works very well as accommodation. A continental breakfast is provided in the carriage but we were also able to visit the main lodge for breakfast on some mornings during our stay. Heaters, thick duvets and blankets are provided because, with all the windows, I imagine it gets pretty chilly at times. We only needed a light duvet during our stay but cranked the heater up in the mornings.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights in the converted convent. I’m sure the nuns never had it this good. Wonderful hospitality from the time we arrived until we departed. Short walk to town. Would happily stay here again.
