At first we were sad that Rose’n’Reel’s cottage was booked on the days we wanted to go there. But Lyn offered us the queen bed garden room with own bathroom across the floor. We liked the quiet room. Lyn was so kind to arrange a Milford Sound trip for us on the next day. She recommended us to do the...

We have just gotten back from a month long trip from NZ in Dec 2012. Of the many places that we have stayed in this was most enjoyable. We stayed at the cabin surrounded by the farm animals - Deer, Cow, Sheep, Horse. It is such a great feeling to wake up to the view of green paddock flanked by...

We stayed in the cabin for two days and loved it. Our two-year old loved playing with the animals - the deer, horse, cow, dog, and cat - and it was really fun to have them all just outside of our cabin. The cabin was cute and comfortable and very clean. It was a bit small however and it was...

We stayed in the cabin for 2 nights. Picked it on the basis it was a bit different from the sterile hotels found worldwide. Upon arrival, we received an extremely warm welcome from Lyn, Meg the dog and the various other animals. Lyn helped organise tours to Milford Sounds and the glow worm trips and was very helpful. The cabin...

We arrived to a warm welcome by Lynn, Lex and their dog Meg. We stayed in the cute cottage that had a kitchenette. There was plenty of space for two people. The bedroom was nice and offered a queen bed. We enjoyed bringing dinner back and sitting at the picnic table out front of the cottage and watching the animals....

We were so pleased that we stayed at Rose n Reel in the charming guest cabin with its views of mountains and fields of friendly deer, sheep and a horse. We were also grateful to Lex and Lyn for putting us up while they had a house full of family staying with them. The cabin had its own facilities and...

We had a great stay at the Rose n Reel while we were in Te Anau. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were great, especially the home made bread! Lex took my husband fishing for the afternoon – they did not catch anything but had a great time anyway. Lyn was helpful with the attractions in Te Anau and...
