We stayed here back the beginning of May and there appeared to only be 2 rooms rented that night. The check in went quick and the lady was friendly and answered our questions about the area. I found it odd that with only 2 of 100 plus rooms rented, they would put our rooms next to each other, but it... More

Stayed for 2 nights to visit Milford sound and the area. Quick, friendly Check-in and free unlimited WIFI complimentary. Rooms were clean, spacious, self contained and parking outside the room very pleasant. Reasonable pricing for 100$ per night. Only downside was the fire alarm at 7am in the morning which was caused by a faulty fire alarm panel. Will return... More

This property is located about a five-minute drive from the lakefront and town centre. We had a 1 bedroom unit with a Queen Bed and a small kitchenette. Bathroom was Ok but the Unit was 'tired' and in need of refurbishment.There is heating - but no aircon! Rooms appear to be spread over several accommodation blocks . Ours was centrally... More

Arrived at this accommodation in Te Anau at around 10pm and good thing there was an after hours phone we could use to ring reception. The staff was very helpful but that was it. The room was small but was clean enough. However, I was unable to sleep through the night because I felt itchy probably because of the doona/comforter.... More

We felt quite happy with what we had at this motel-type accommodation due mainly to:- - highly convenient location to get around; - fairly new facilities in the bath rooms; - clean and comfortable bedding - we all had a sound sleep; and - good value of the service received The only thing we were not 100% satisfied with was...

This motel served its purpose for our two night stay. The studio unit we stayed in was to the rear of the main hotel in a one storey building. It was basic and very much in need of refurbishing. However it was clean and spacious. We booked two rooms and unfortunately these were not located in the same building which... More

We probably surprised the motel by booking here since it was not high season. As some reviewer mentioned it is overpriced and not how it looks in the pictures. The kitchen facilities are located in a room converted for the purpose on the ground floor. The rooms themselves are small and the location is not something desirable. I would choose... More
