Top choice bed and breakfast in Te Anau
Image by Booking.com

In a sea of functional but fusty motels, Te Anau's former Sisters of Mercy Convent distinguishes itself with unique history. The place oozes comfort and historic character from the elaborate confession box in reception to the complimentary fireside wine and ample continental breakfast. For a real treat, book into the heritage train carriage in the garden, complete with claw-foot bath.
