We really enjoyed staying at Radfords on the Lake. Check-in was welcoming and we had a lovely room upstairs. The bed was super comfortable, and the pillows were perfect. The room was clean and fresh.

What great people. Te Anau might be suffering from Covid19 but it has not stopped the amazing hospitality. We were given great advice on where to eat, which tours and how to get the best out of our stay. The 1 bedroom apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable and the view was great. What was memorable though was the friendly and helpful owners.

Great location on the lake. Kerri is an excellent host and very friendly and welcoming. Rooms are clean and well equipped, and it is a short stroll to the town centre. Stay here if you are going to Milford Sound. Do not pay hundreds to stay in Milford - it's a boat dock with a view and nothing else.
