The room and facilities were perfect for our group. The only let down was the Wi-Fi was not working properly. Would definitely stay again. Nigel was a great host.

Kids say the place was really nice and would recommend for people staying in Te Anau. It was peaceful and an easy walk across the park to the town centre. Nigel & Mary really really lovely hosts. The room was spacious, very clean and tidy and had everything we needed for our stay. Enjoyed being able to sit on the balcony and play with the swing ball set, BBQ avail if we had wanted. Easy stroll to waterfront. Can't fault and would definitely recommend and stay again. Can't wait to return to Te Anau. Oh and the bathroom was very nicely redocrated :)
