Murrells Grand View House


the perfect location to relax and unwind....

Lake Manapouri is New Zealand's second deepest lake and has a circumference of 170 kilometers.  Manapouri is the departure point for Doubtful Sound excursions which leave from Pearl Harbour on the Waiau River just minutes from our accommodation at Murrells Grand View House.  The small township of Manapouri has around 400 residents and is served by local amenities such as a petrol station, shop, hairdresser, pub, restaurant and cafe.  It is located on the Southern Scenie Route, a stunning drive between Dunedin and Queenstown taking in the wonderful Catlins Coast.  The beauty of the Southern Scenic Route is best enjoyed at a leisurely pace, with frequent breaks, short walks and overnight stays along the way.  Murrells Grand View House is the perfect location to stay for visiting the many unique locations thoughout Fiordland and Southland.  

Murrells Grand View House has unsurpassed magnificent views of Lake Manapouri and the surrounding mountains.  The house is set in 3 acres of gardens providing plenty of space and privacy in which to relax and unwind.
