  • "Beautiful hotel, warm and welcoming. We had a 2 bedroom spa bath unit which was lovely. Decorated luxuriously with special touches, and so clean. Kerri, the manager is so lovely, let us feed her gorgeous cat Dexter as we were missing ours. Guest laundry available, free parking and situated right across the road from the lake and a short walk to town. Can’t wait to return, thank you for a lovely stay."

  • "We stayed for two nights and have no complaints, staff were very helpful and their location puts you very close to the main street and local places to eat. The room was good and on par with many places we have stayed in both in OZ and Europe and in some aspects, better. I certainly recommend them as a nice place to rest and relax during your exploration of this beautiful country."

Finalist…. With the MC
We love all of our guests, and sharing their joy as they discover the pure, pristine beauty of Fiordland. So we’re more than pleased to share some rather exciting news: we have been named a Finalist in the Qualmark 100% Pure New Zealand Experience Awards! 

No matter what the end results may be, we are so honoured to be amongst such a fantastic list of finalists and to be recognised for our efforts.

Why, meow, two-legged pals. 

 I’m Dexter Dude, and this is my second attempt at a short news update on Te Anau from my particular purry perspective. Because despite my small stature, and my priority being snoozing in a patch of sun most of the time, I’m actually surprisingly up-to-speed with the goings on around here.

On Saturday July 10th it sounds like the Kepler Track is going to be bustling. There’s a family-friendly Matariki Night Time Nature Walk to discover the forest after dark, and spot some of the delicious interesting creatures that live there. Registrations are required, so get in quick https://www.doc.govt.nz/news/events/regional-events/fiordland-events/booking-form-fiordland/

That’s all from me for the month. Catch you next time! 
🐾 all my fluffy love, Dexter.

Winter is officially here! And the beautiful stillness of Lake Te Anau is second to none at this time of the year. In fact, the whole Fiordland region is stunning this season; things are a little bit quieter outside of the peak spring and summer Great Walks and general exploration period, meaning you can take a moment to catch your breath and soak in the scenery. 
We’d love to host you here at Radfords on the Lake for a midwinter break. Time it with the school holidays next month to treat the kiddos to a calm, crisp Doubtful or Milford Sound experience. Or take the time to yourself – as a couple or alone – to tick this trip off your Kiwi adventure bucket list.

Reading through Trip Advisor reviews and I thought this lovely review sums up Kerri and her team perfectly...

Autumn 🍂 

Our favourite season here in Te Anau, the weather is calm and still followed with warm sunny afternoons.

This tree was saved when the section was cleared by Sandra & Merv Radford in preparation for building the complex back in 2000, we always look forward to the beautiful colours it changes to in Autumn.

We recently hosted the lovely Wendy and Brent from Tauranga. This afternoon a surprise gift arrived from them and I was blown away by their thoughtfulness and kindness. Thank you so much @wendysboutique
