4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spacious rooms which were well equipped. Host was welcoming. A little disappointed that the rooms were on a side street and not lake front at all but you could sit at the picnic tables outside each room and have a lake view. We found it a little public as people walking by tended to peer into rooms and in fact... More

We only stayed one night at the Lodge after we completed 4 days walking the Milford Track. The main reason for booking was the two person spa to ease all the aches from the walk away and it didn't disappoint - very clean room was well presented, had all the nice little touches you'd like and was very comfortable. Even... More

We stayed for one night the manager was great, the rooms were fantastic. Free DVDs for the kids, free wifi,and close to the Main Street. No real views of the lake but if you push your head against the back window of the room you can see lake, but who cares plenty of time to see it during the day.

Great private room with lake view and picnic table outside each patio door for private BBQ. Room was clean and comfortable. Kitchen area was well supplied. The price was reasonable for location and amenities . I would stay there again and would recommend it to friends.

My wife and I have traveled for 4 weeks throughout New Zealand staying at motel and hotel accomodations in both the North and South Island. Although the accomodations were adequate for a motel, I was disappointed that the rims did not have a lake view since only the office actually faced the lakefront. Each of the unit rooms were facing... More

What a beautiful, clean and lovely place. My husband and I have stayed in a few different places throughout our trip. However this place was just that little bit better than the rest. Not only was our accommodation immaculate (as many places are), there were little lavender bags laid out on the bed with chocolates for both of us. Similarly,... More

Absolutely stunning location, perfect room with great facilities and comfortable beds. Would definitely stay there again. Close to delicious Italian restaurant. Boat to see Glow Worms is just 100 meters away.

This is a small (12 room) motel close to the centre of Te Anau. spacious and well equipped and decorated room, although the windows face west and the room can get hot. Good value for money with helpful informative hosts, and about 70 miles drive from Milford sound. would recommend
