We stayed in this hotel only one night, we didn’t have time to use their facilities. We only want to go to Te Anau Glow-worm Caves. We need someone to take us to Real Journeys Visitor Centre and we were so glad they have shuttle service took us there. We stayed in the Regency Room and had a quiet good... More

We stayed here for two nights in December of 2014. The staff was ok, not super enthusiastic but ok. Our room was also ok though bit shabby. The window lock was almost broken and there was no AC which caused the room temperature to soar so high we had to basically be shirtless all the time and keep the door... More

After a driving day, I arrived very tired and I found ti Fiordland all the dreams come true. Warm room, warm water, everything clean and bright. And Gleen-or something like this-was the name of duty manager was very kind, waiting for me in the night, in the street to show me the way. Thank-you!

The place is ok. The front desk staff ruin it though. They hire half wits that are unwilling to help you out, turn away business and take personal calls while you are waiting to be served. Im not being unreasonable here, but if it was my job to welcome people into my hotel and town I would at least try... More

The room was nice and clean, the bathroom new and shower worked very well. Wifi was slow but unlimited. Parking free in front of the motel. The manager extremely helpful since we had booked 2 nights and had to cancel one night.

Motel and Backpackers hotel situated between 10 and 15 minutes walk from the centre of Te Anau. Motel is good value and clean and comfortable in itself but a bit of TLC is required on some of the outside facilities. The staff were very friendly and helpful during our two day stop. Good varied breakfast offered in the Motel.

The rooms are basic but clean and have an ok bathroom! We were only using the rooms to sleep in and so were just the job. Some parts of the hotel look a bit shabby but that didn't matter. Glen on reception was great and so helpful and even drove the shuttle bus into town. His local knowledge was extensive... More

This was one of the more disappointing stops on our tour of New Zealand. The place is very run down and in urgent need of a makeover. The receptionist was most unwelcoming and the room was a real disappointment. Its also just that little too far from the centre of what is a beautiful town. It was, however, full and... More

We stayed 2 nights and it suited our needs. Room was spacious but I understand that was not the norm. The place hasn't really decided what it wants to be. Seems like its built back to front. Very helpful staff. No reataurant . But it was OK. Room was clean.decent shower and bed. Reasonably priced but does need investment. Typically... More
