Dunluce Bed and Breakfast

Dunluce Bed and Breakfast

Te Anau & Manapouri, New Zealand

Dunluce is a purpose-built bed and breakfast property. Wendy and Roger McQuillan are your hosts and have drawn on the history of the family at Dunluce Castle in Ireland in naming this B&B.

There are just four guest rooms, all on one floor and each with en suite facilities and views of the lake. Guests can enjoy the comfort of the lounge area in the dining room, giving the property an intimate and friendly feel.

For those traveling in style, helicopter landings on the lawn are possible.


This charming property really impressed us, particularly the friendliness of its hosts and is an ideal base for trips into Fiordland.
