This place is very close to the lake and has friendly helpful staff. The units are quite adequate and there are nice gardens to sit in. The walk into town is only short and there are several good restaurants there. The motel will book trips for you in advance and we were very pleased with our Milford Sound Cruise. We... More

My wife and I stayed in the villa / house for two nights on a recent trip to Te Anau. The villa is a great option or those wanting more space than the typical motel room or for a family. The villa is well appointed with a full modern kitchen and bathrooms and off street parking. Rooms are spacious and... More

We (4 adults) stayed in 2 bedroomed motel unit after finishing the Milford Track. The staff were super friendly and attentive (Emily). Our room was spacious, clean and lovely comfortable beds. Short walk (5 mins) to restaurants/bars. Good basic facilities for cooking. Great value. Would certainly stay again!

This was a great motel. We had a room overlooking the lake with spectacular views.The room was clean and tidy, and well appointed, and great value for money. Would highly recommend to other travellers. ' We also did Doubtful sound which was superb.

We stayed on a self drive holiday because we had booked an early cruise at Milford. Overall rated as average - service was friendly and attentive. Te Anau is a great place to base yourself from - accommodation is more reasonable here and more choices for food than what is available in Milford Sound. Wifi facilities are terrible even though...

Last December was my first time ever visiting Te Anau. From the very beginning I arrived in Edgewater Te Anau and met with Wayne (the manager), I feel that this is the right place for our family to get a good rest. The room is really clean with a complete set of kitchenette, fridge and dining room typical studio. There... More

We stayed just after Christmas. I would rate this motel overall as average. The service was good, helpful and friendly people. There is a beautiful lake just across the road. It is very close to the Town centre. However, was quite disappointed with Wi-Fi facilities. It does say that Wi-Fi facilities are available but we were able to use it... More

The rooms are small but we had a separate bedroom, tiny shower where the shower curtain was too short and wet all the bathroom floor. Lucky we... More

We spent 2 nights in motel. The Gentleman in reception was very helpful and not overly pushy in his suggestions of where to go and what to see. The room was quite tired but clean and bedding change during our stay. You could see the Lake but from an angle when sat outside very near town centre and all restaurants.... More
