We stayed during a quiet time of the year during winter, our room was massive but yet still heated well and very warm. While we were in town we had a few functions to attend and the hotel were very accommodating with their shuttle service to drop us off and pick us up at times convenient to us.

Friendly staff in a very clean quiet hotel. It was a spur of the moment discussion to stay overnight in Te Anau so booked through a website. Great price and very enjoyable stay. Would definitely stay again.

Me and the girlfriend stayed in the small town of te anu on our way to Milford sound. the lake and the sunset we saw were wonderful. the hotel is a bit dated and wifi only in reception. the rooms were massive and beds very comfy. did offer free parking although the spaces were quite small.

We stayed here for two nights as part of our trip round New Zealand and found the hotel very good clean, comfortable bed and shower facilities. It was an excellent place to stay for our trip Milford Sound - gave us sufficient time to enjoy the scenery and get to the Sound by 10.00 am for our trip. The reception... More

Stayed one night in second room floor with view of lake, breakfast included. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable, good shower. Buffet breakfast in morning was reasonable, dining room has beautiful lake views. Would definitely consider staying here again. No free WiFi except for 50mb free in foyer only.

One night stay in this hotel. Furnishings basic and hotel is clean. Everything was OK. They could improve upon Internet offering the 30 min free IN ROOMS. Instead our whole group congregated in lobby. New Zealand tourism would be wise to improve upon their wifi speed and connectivity.
