Fodor's Expert Review Murrell's Grand View House

Murrell Ave., Manapouri, Te Anau, Southland, 9643, New Zealand

Twenty minutes south of Te Anau, this B&B sits on one of New Zealand's prettiest and most pristine lakes—Lake Manapouri. The fifth generation of the Murrell family runs this historic property built in 1889. Take in the views from the veranda, walk over to the wharf for a boat tour of Doubtful Sound, or curl up in the library by the fire with a drink.

PROS

  • leave your car here while on the overnight cruise in Doubtful Sound

CONS

  • it's a bit of a detour from the usual tourist circuit
