We stayed here as part of a rugby tour with 20 boys. Rooms were adequate as was the continental breakfast. The room I stayed in was a two level apartment with 2 singles downstairs and a double and single bed upstairs. Very roomy even if a bit old but never the less clean. Serve us well and would recommend for... More

We booked for three nights in April 2014, but only stayed for one! An overwhelming musty smell greeted us when we walked into the room. We found broken floorboards in every room, bar the bathroom. Overall appearance was dirty and uncared for, staff seemed surprised when we checked out and mentioned the above problems!

We had a two bedroom apartment directly upstairs to the reception and it was fantastic. Massive rooms and very clean bathroom. Big lounge and dining area with a full kitchen. Free washer and dryer in a separate unit. Free wifi restricted to one device which is a little hassle. Would definitely stay here again. Fantastic place and close to town... More

I stayed here in February 2014 for almost 2 weeks on business. There was mold in the bedroom and all of the rooms had a musty damp smell. The rooms are very old fashioned as is the furniture. I stayed during orientation week at the local Uni so there was quite a bit of noise. On the upside the staff... More

We stay two nights on two separate occasions within a two week period and were charged 2 different rate (for the same room) $55 apart. That kind of left a bitter taste in my mouth... but in saying that we did return. It was a two bedroom unit with good heating, MORE than ample living space (including full kitchen and... More

We stayed here with wider family for graduation weekend. While the place is very tired and in need of some maintenance, and the room could have been cleaner (especially the bathroom), there was plenty of space for four of us, the beds were comfortable, and the location was perfect! This place is just what you're looking for if you're travelling... More

Our apartment was big, enough room for us to have our own space which was perfect for our family. The bathroom seemed to have been recently refurbished and was nice. The rest of the apartment could do with an update and some work, though it seems like they may be doing it up? Was possibly the most run down motel... More

Don't bother with this place - especially if you've looked at their website and are expecting your room to look like the one advertised. Talk about misleading advertising - surely it's illegal. We arrived expecting a really nice place and what we got was a complete dive. We couldn't get out of there fast enough.

More fool us. We didn't review Tripadvisor before we booked, and now wish we had. And our comments are pretty much mirrored by previous occupants. The images on the internet site are very different to the actual motel itself. It is very tired and run down. Our two storied apartment reeked of upholstery cleaner when we opened the door, and...

While in Te Anau we used their brochure to select a reservation. Upon arrival, we found our room to be in disrepair. The lights didn't work, the rooms were cold and moudly, the walls were peeling off, and there was a mouse-trap by our entrance. The chairs had human hair bunched on the backs. The sheets in one bedroom were... More
