Friendly and good location
Great location across from the lake (although there are no lake views, that's fine). Proprietor was incredibly helpful, and suggested locations to eat, etc.

Great Place to Stay
We stayed in Lakefront Lodge for 3 nights in late September. The room was comfortable, quiet, clean and well maintained. It had a side aspect looking down to Lake Te Anau. The staff were very helpful in advice and booking tours. The Lodge is close to town and very central to adventure into either Doubtful Sound or Milford Sound. The area is spectacular.
