Scale of 90-100
Welcoming 10-room property perched on a steep hillside with a backdrop of Lake Te Anau. Main living area in the North American-style lodge features a 36-foot ceiling and a sitting area with a huge fireplace of river stones facing a dramatic wall of glass. Accommodations are well-appointed and smartly styled but tend to be small. The single Executive Suite with a largely neutral color palette and separate living room with river-stone gas fireplace is recommended. Two loft-style log cabins situated 220 yards behind the main building are intended for families. The distinguished restaurant offers a daily changing farm-to-table menu and seating in a glass-walled dining room or outdoor terrace. Guided trout-fishing excursions, hikes in Fiordland National Park, jet boat rides and helicopter tours can be arranged.

The dramatic architecture; excellent food; obliging staff.
Even the second-floor Deluxe Lodge Rooms are rather small.

The astonishing scenery of Milford Sound is a 90-minute drive away.
