Stayed in motel unit for one night due to road to Milford Sound being blocked by snow and fallen trees. Couldn't talk about the view of the lake as we could not see it for rain although `I believe it is awsome. The room itself was basic with all we needed for our stay, it was however well worn and...

Lonely Planet recommended this place and so we booked the budget accommodation. We were really happy with it. The staff was really friendly. The wi-fi was broken at the time (a lightning strike) and after it was repaired we got some vouchers for free which was really kind. Also, they helped us out with some milk and bread because we...

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The motel is a little tired but very clean. The views are magnificent. We had dinner in the pub next door,which is... More

Stayed for three nights and it was the worst accommodation of our South Island trip. The rooms are starting to show their age and are in need of some refurbishment. On the day we arrived, we were asked by the Receptionist what time would be in for breakfast next morning. We responded that we would be in at 9am each... More

The motel is a bit old and tired but the friendly staff made it a great place to stay, rooms were okay, the bed were comfortable enough and breakfast was good. The Welsh receptionist was lovely, a real people person.

We stayed one night at this motel. We received a very warm welcome which was much appreciated after the long drive. We stayed in room 116 which had a lovely view of the lake. The room was spotless and comfortable with plenty of tea / coffee and space to relax.

Two couples shared the "Holiday House" while we visited Fiordland. While the decor was a little dated it was beautifully maintained, very clean, and we could have literally lived there for a week without needing anything extra. The views are fantastic, and although one overlooks a main road, it was very quiet after dark. We would happily return.

Just returned from a night's stay at Manapouri Lakeside Motel. We loved it. The staff couldn't be more helpful. The room was clean, and the views were to die for! The decore was very 60's but we loved it. Everything worked well, and we had a sense that nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the retaurant in the... More
