My wife and I spent 2 nights here. Both Paul and Britanny at the front desk did an exceptional job in helping us to arrange a trip to Milford Sound. They went above and beyond the call in making sure that we had the best suited arrangements. The hotel room was very comfortable overlooking the lake. The restaurant was excellent... More

Only had one night here but I was pleasantly surprised, it was quite a nice hotel. Room was more than big enough, clean, good beds, nice bathroom, quiet, didn't have any meals there so can't comment on that, it's centrally located in the middle of town, good position. The only negative was no Wi Fi in the rooms, only in... More

Our Deluxe room was spacious with very comfortable beds. The double glazing meant we could ignore buses starting up outside. We could also control room temperature by opening windows for cooling or setting our own comfort level by controlling a wall heater. The facilities were very clean. A minor niggle was the wet flapping shower curtain over the bath. We... More

Excellent located hotel that was close to the lake, supermarket and convenient store. The staff were also nice, friendly and helpful. It provided a spacious, clean and tidy room and bathroom. The beds were big and convenient for good sleep. The heater was working well which was good for the cold weather at the time we visited Te Anau. However,... More

Our recent trip to New Zealand was thrown into disarray by the ferocious storms that savaged the South Island at Easter 2014. We left the north end of the island and headed south to find better weather and booked a room at this hotel online and on short notice. The hotel was a bit of a disappointment for us, though....

We arrived in Te Anau from Milford after dark and this hotel was recommended by a fellow traveller. The receptionist was friendly and efficient. The room was a nice size with 2 double beds. The bathroom and decor were a little dated but clean and comfortable. The fridge was quite noisey so we turned it off and reported it to... More

Good welcome, very nice reception / lounge area. Our room was 240 which was really nice. Food was very good in a nice restaurant. It was odd that we had to request a safety rubber shower mat from reception as this is where they were kept if you want one. Also odd that that when I asked for fresh milk... More
