The Lakeview does exactly what you want from a motel. The rooms are a decent size and very clean. There is parking space for each room. There is a good laundry so you can wash your clothes. It also has a pub and restaurant as part of the complex and the food was fine. The only negative was the breakfast... More

Staying two nights. The first night was tough as the bed was very old & sagging so I got no sleep. I went to the desk and they were nice enough to change our room for the second night. The decor is dated..sort of 1960's but it was reasonably clean and quiet. Great views out over the lake.

Reading through the various reveiws, I was wondering what i was coming to, However after the meal that I had in the Lakeview restaurant, I realised that this was a great place and one of the most wonderful veiws. The lakeveiw Hotel, is one of the old DB ( Dominion Breweries ) hotels, and it dates back to the 1960's,... More

The staff were kind and helpful and one member of staff took us in her car down the road to catch the cruise to Doubtful Sound We were... More

We recently stayed here in a lake view motel unit. The room was quiet large and very comfortable and clean. There was very little noise from the road in front of the motel. The view from the verandah was great and it was quiet pleasant to sit there of an afternoon for a quiet drink. The staff were very couteous... More

The studio unit was tiny! The smallest I have ever been in over the years. Clean and linen all good, but very cramped and more like a little chalet. We climbed over the suitcase etc. Restaurant nearby was good, and meal was fine. Had great salad bar!

We had 2 nights here, could only get into a family unit as accommodation was tight all over the area. You would think that a family unit would be roomy! Not so! Our lounge area was less than 3 metres wide, no power points so the TV was in the bedroom. We did have a kitchen so were able to... More

Stayed the night before a Doubtful Sound cruise and found the place ideally situated as very close to departure point. Especially good if you have an 8am sailing. Room needed refreshing but had all necessary amenities. Staff friendly but breakfast a bit pricey. Restaurant next door very average but obviously has a captive market. Convenience is this place's only selling... More

OK, so this isn't the most modern of places, but we had a balcony, a stunning view and a bath! Free wifi was good. We had deluxe room 60? which might be better than some rooms the other reviewers had. We found there was not a great choice of places to stay. This is a really small place and unless... More

Booked a night stay through booking.com.Stayed in room 513 with my family for 4. Staffs are very friendly and always willing to help. Though we checked in late, the instructions by the reception were clear as where to go. The rooms were clean, cosy and beds were comfortable though the entire motel building looks like 1960's old fashioned type.There's not... More
