Housed within a restored former convent, Te Anau Lodge offers the chance to experience New Zealand hospitality within the lakeside township of Te Anau, the gateway to the stunning Fiordland region.
The nine guestrooms of Te Anau Lodge all offer a different experience with no two rooms being furnished the same, to retain their historic charm while offering the modern facilities expected of a luxury property. Whilst the lodge offers a unique insight into part of New Zealand’s history, its location just a 15-minute walk from the main township makes it accessible to all the activities Fiordland offers.
The beautifully appointed public areas allow you to enjoy breakfast in the former chapel with its stained glass windows, before heading out for a day of exploration in the region’s iconic Milford and Doubtful Sounds. On returning to the lodge, relax in the evening in the guest library with an open fire. With mountain bikes available to borrow, views over Lake Te Anau and the surrounding Murchison Mountains (home to the Takahe, one of the New Zealand's rarest birds), and sunsets and stargazing to enjoy, uou will not have to venture far to appreciate the scenery of this breathtaking region.
