We arrived late on Saturday night. The owner was extremely helpful making our reservations for the Milford Sound boat trip and telling us available dinner options. The room was clean and spacious. Overall an excellent experience.

My husband and I loved everything about this motel! The wonderful couple who own the motel (and their sweet, very affectionate dog) were so helpful in recommending things to do in the area, and even let us know early in the morning when one of our tours was delayed. They let us leave our luggage in our room for the... More

We stayed here three nights. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and staff were helpful, allowing us to use their phone to make a couple of calls. I would have liked a bit more wifi, as it seems that regardless of the length of your stay, you receive the same 2 hours of wifi access free before needing to buy... More

We had wanted to stay at the Fiordland Lakeview Motel and Apartments in Te Anau but they were full. We asked them to recommend another hotel and they suggested this one. We were so disappointed. When we arrived at about 3pm it was about 50 degrees F or 10 degrees C outside and the room was wide open with no... More

I would respectfully like Mary L to remove this response as it was obviously written in anger following a disagreement with the previous owners of this motel. We have been the new owners since June 2014 and are proud of this product and the minor changes we have made to the operation. I believe this review is unfair and unjust... More

Well situated motel, close to town centre with standard fittings. Laundry was well priced at $2 per load and $2 for 40mins drying. Happy to recommend this motel in it's price range. Playground was entertaining for kids from preschoolers to early teens.

Our playground is very popular and situated right beside the guest barbecue facilities so parents can sit and watch as the lids play if they wish. We are new owners but are endeavoring to keep the prices of rooms and amenities at the affordable level they are to enable families to enjoy a holiday that wont break the bank. Thank... More

This is a great place to stay in Te Anau. We did so a few years ago (to visit Milford Sound) and decided to return on this trip because we wanted to see Lake Manapouri which is close by. It's close to the waterfront of photogenic Lake Te Anau and within walking distance of the town centre. Illeana is a... More

A little dated, but still good value for money. Quiet, enough space and we used their BBQ (in the rain). Easy to walk where you want to be. If you get what you pay for, this is better than you'd expect from the outside.

This motel is one street back from the lake which allows for a quiet stay. The outside area is large and very suitable for families. Although rooms are of an older era, they are large and clean. Staff extremely helpful.
