Great stay at Te Anau
Comfortable beds, clean rooms and free wifi
This motel is on the pricier side but the beds are really comfortable. The lake is just in front of the motel and you can easily stroll to the Main Street. The beds were really comfortable and there's free wifi available. But there was only 1 toilet with 6 pax staying in one unit. So this means that we have to take our turn to use the bathroom.

Best Motel we have ever stayed
1. Magnificent Lakeview. 2 Wonderful staff 3. clean and spacious room
We previously had not-so-good experience staying in motels and thus as we get older, we try to avoid staying at motels. Radfords Lakeview Motel has changed our thinking. Kerri is more like a big sister to us advising us where to eat, shop and play and reminding us to drive safely in the snow and rain. Our upstair one bedroom with full lake view was spacious, clean and well equipped. The king size bed was comfortable and the doona was quite warm that we didn't need heater on overnight in a snowing night. Bathroom was quite reasonably sized and is equipped with all essential utilities. In fact we found our room here is better equipped and more comfortable than some of the 5 star hotels we stayed in Sydney. The next morning when we woke up it was snowing and with the lake on the background from the lounge, the scene was just magnificent. It's a short walk to the town centre where the restaurants and shops are. Majority of tourists only stayed at Te Anau for 1-2 nights as a gateway to Milford Sounds. We didn't realise there are plenty more to explore around Te Anau. We will come back to Radfords again to explore beauty of this region.
