I came to stay here with some trepidation, after reading previous trip advisor reports. I emailed in advance to ask for a ground floor room, they did not respond so I thought they had not got it. They had received it and had acted on my request. We were offered help with our luggage but did not need it. Reception... More

The hotel and food were good. Room was clean and comfortable. Laundry facilities available. Buffet food was ample and varied. The location was good and the setting was wonderful. Te Anau is a cute little town. A variety of shops to poke around in. Nice walking path along the lake. Another nice stop on our trip through the South Island.

This hotel was conveniently located, and it was a short walking distance to the restaurants and shops in the town center and the lake. It feels like a typical chain hotel. The rooms were average and clean, and you only had wifi at the front desk unless you paid for it in your room. We stayed here for two nights,... More

They give you 20 minutes of free wifi, or 20mb, which may mean you get to stay on the internet for less than 10 minutes. Other motels in New Zealand and in Te Anau give unlimited or almost unlimited wifi. The ground floor rooms face the tour bus pick up area, so you may be awakened at 6 a.m. by... More

I understand what other reviewers mean when they say the hotel is a little tired but so many are in this quality/price range - short-stay hotels take a beating and the weather here can't help. We were perfectly comfortable for 2 nights. The room was a good size, quiet and, at a push, had a view of the lake across... More

Stayed at this place for one night before heading out on the Milford Sound for an overnight cruise. It was ok for one night but their are definitely better places in town. If your staying for more then one night I would suggest somewhere else. This place was booked by the company who put our trip together so I can't... More

We paid $120 for our room, with a lake view. This was hugely discounted. For what we paid, it was reasonable value. The room was clean and the bed comfy but everything was very tired. The lake view was across a large corrugated roof and there was nowhere outside to sit. Parking was very limited - we ended up in... More

Everything about this stay was fine. It's getting a bit old now, could do with refurbishment at some point, but overall it's just about OK still. Parking was a bit difficult, there didn't seem to be much space, but it's central and right on the lake. No complaints, but then nothing special either.

Parking was tight and scarce, rooms were adequate but average, views were non-existent, Wi-Fi was worse than woeful, but Darren (Reilly?), the day time reception/front desk manager made up for everything. Friendly, courteous, obliging & helpful. He should be promoted! Well done & thank you for making our brief stay at Kingsgate Te Anau so pleasant.
