    I didn’t like the fact that it was sold as accommodation near Milford Sound, when that town is a 5 hour drive away.

  • 6.0.Good

    A well presented property lacking a few basics.

    Being given a room without internal hallway connection to the kitchen/tv area meant having to go outside in icy conditions to make morning tea. Luckily it did nt rain. This made a well presented property very uncomfortable for us . A simple coffee/ tea making in-room facility would have been helpful. Also the water flow in the shower was very weak. Beautiful bathroom though.

    Comfortable and close to the lake.

    I could put up photos of the amazing view of Glenorchy and the surrounds but chances are that you've already seen them and are now looking for a place to stay. The Lake House is comfortable and situated very close to the lake. This is both a good thing and a bad thing. Good because it's close to walk and get a better view down the lake or up towards the mountains where sections of LoTR was filmed. Bad because there are sand flies which will happily feast upon your bare skin. Make sure you wear good insect repellent at all times. We stayed in the King suite and it was a quite sizable room with a massive en-suite which included a separate bath. There is a small deck out the front where you could sit and have a coffee or a wine. WiFi was easy to access and suitably fast. The host was amazing and greeted me by name before I managed to tell her any more than the fact I was checking in. I felt that there was nothing that she would not have done to make our stay more comfortable if this was required.

    So Glad We Picked The Glenorchy Lake House

    We recommend this lovely accommodation to anyone visiting Glenorchy. All exceeded our expectations with outstanding mountain views, beautiful, shared kitchen and living room, generous breakfast, wonderful host, and fabulous lake and lagoon walks right outside the front door. Loved the deck, cappuccinos from the adjacent cafe, and ease of accessibility to both village and nature.

    Beautiful setting! Fragrant roses wafting in the air next to our private deck, where our lovely hostess delivered hot flat whites upon our arrival! Great jetted hottub with a view of the mountains! What more could one ask for!

  • 2.0.Poor

    We are on our way from Milford Sound to Glenorchy but we have problem with the country code no to allow us to call them to inform them that we are late to arrive to the motel. For info, we are using spark no. We arrive the Glenorchy Lake House around 18:00 and we went to the Trading Post and motel but no one available. We went to the bar 'GYC Cafe and Bar' nearby Glenorchy Lake House and asked the guests inside on how to call the owner as stated at the Trading Post signage 'after hours 5pm, call 4424900 ' which is a different phone number from the information stated in the booking slip. We tried to call both numbers stated in the signage and in the booking slips numerous number of times but no one pick up the phone calls. Refer attachment 1. We waited in the rain for almost two hours until 20:00 at the front of the Trading Post which is stated in the booking slip but no one come to the area. We even go to the next house to ask if someone knows how we can enter the motel, but none available. We are lost and since we are not able to call customer service no from New Zealand, I tried to call my husband multiple times to call customer service on behalf of me. My husband lodge a report twice and even your customer service unable to contact the host. Please refer to your customer service call log. Since we have waited for too long in the rainy day and it is already late and we are extremely tired, we couldn't wait anymore and we deci
