Simple hotel appropriate to wilderness location. Room was plain with limited amenities. Staff friendly and efficient. Limited free wifi in lobby, paid wifi in room. Several groups staying the night we were there.

Clean, some fittings are modernised. Near the lakefront. Friendly staff. No wifi in rooms at all a big surprise and let down. Limited free and paid wifi options available in lobby. Overall a modest budget for a modest accommodation.

The room was neat, tidy and comfortable but the stay was soured somewhat because we felt misled by the advertising on the website we booked with. We paid extra for a superior room that promised 'commanding lake or mountain views'. What we ended up with was a room with a view of the back carpark. No mountains or lake to... More

We stayed for a couple of days and were a bit disappointed in not getting lake facing rooms even though we had requested several weeks in advance. But we did get rooms without having to wait on arrival at around 10 am. Anyway, the restaurant has an excellent view of the lake. The staff are all very helpful and the... More

In pure "ya gets what ya pays for" terms, the Kingsgate fits the bill admirably. The clean, well-sized rooms are getting a little tired but are still comfortable and in good shape. There is a bathtub, which is unexpected at this point. At this price point, you would struggle to find better value.

We had two nights here and chose it due to the price (and positive reviews) We were checked in by a friendly and competent lady who gave us a map and pointed out some things to do in Te Anau.

Very nice welcome and rooms. The restaurant was good though it was surprising that there was no venison on the menu. Lots of channels on the TV. However what made it a poor stay was the hassle over wifi. Compared to other stays the need to register and get a restricted short term access just took the gloss off it.

Stayed here for two nights as part of a tour package. The hotel is across the street from Lake Te Anau and it's about 20 minutes walk to the Town Centre.
