We stayed here recently and had a lovely two night stay. Room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The view over the lake was lovely and despite being next to the road was fairly quiet. staff were friendly and helpful, and we had lovely meals at the restaurant next door. Would fully recommend staying here!

The Lakeview motel certainly has a birds eye view of the lake. We were very happy to stay here after a day at doubtful sound as there was no other accomodation available. It had all we needed. Rooms were comfortable enough and clean, although its quite an old place. We had a great meal in the bistro and met up... More

Motel overlooking Manapouri lake and mountains with comfortable firm beds. Rooms are average sized. Helpful and organized reception. Clean bathrooms. Bar located next door. Simple, straightforward pleasant stay. Good place to rest on your overland trip across the South Island.

We stayed at the motel for two nights. As Manapouri is just 20km from Te Anau, it worked out cheaper to stay here and just drive through for the Milford Sound cruise. The room was clean and I think the beds were in excellent condition, nice and cosy. Breakfast is not included in the price, which is the only let... More

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.

The lakeveiw Hotel, is one of the old DB ( Dominion Breweries ) hotels, and it dates back to the 1960's,... More

We had a large room with a shared balcony with a beautiful view of Lake Manapouri. There were good laundry facilities. The restaurant served good meals and you could also get breakfast. 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!
