We had a great time there very helpful when we needed anything. The Wi-Fi was free for the first 20mb t when you have to pay for more. Very Tidy and Clean will definitely go back when we come back to Te anau.

Typical single storey motel accommodation with pleasing attention to detail by eco-friendly management. Nice touches include a car wash facility (plenty of unsealed roads hereabouts!)children's play area and small help-yourself salad garden. Very quiet position yet within 2 minutes walk of Lake Te Anau and the Fiordland NP visitor centre. Town centre amenities are a 10 minute stroll away or... More

For a place to stay when travelling around NZ this motel can't be bettered. The facilities were spot on, the room was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean but best of all was the warm welcome and helpfulness of Irene, the manager. She was full of advice on how we might spend our time in Te Anau and was incredibly patient... More

After discovering I had left my shoes behind I called & Irene, the manager, was so helpful. She offered to forward the goods on to our next destination free of charge. Thank you so much. We had a really lovely stay in Te Anau. The facilities & service were excellent.

We stayed for 3 nights, in a room at the back of the motel. This is an old motel which has been refitted. It was comfortable, and generally clean though the stove had obviously been missed during cleaning as it was covered with spatters from previous guests cooking. The kitchen area was narrow but well equipped. The bathroom was small... More

We spent four nights in this charming motel. The owner was so friendly and helpful. When we arrived she escorted us to our room with some muffins and a bottle of milk. Although it is an older motel, everything was updated and meticulously clean. They provided maps and brochures for excursions, menus from local restaurants, laundry facilities, and a small... More

Two night stay with three people. Very helpful on arrival, given fresh milk, wifi. The motel unit was immaculate with high class fittings. Selection of teas, coffee, juices and drinking chocolate. Everything a family would need for self catering. Provision of BBQ, apron and tools for our evening BBQ. Laundry facilities excellent

Just hoping I get a chance to stay there again sometime if I get to go to NZ again. Te Anau is a lovely place too and the motel is 2 minutes walk from the lake and only a few... More

We were very lucky to find this motel available at short notice and it is a perfect gem. We were in need of recuperation and rest after tramping in the Monowai and Kepler areas and this was perfect. Our wonderful owner advised she aims to make our stay homely and this is exactly what they have achieved. Highly recommended and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it had everything we needed. Clean, spacious and comfortable in our 2 bedroom unit. The TV was very large for the room and perhaps not in the ideal location but we don't go on holiday to watch TV anyway. The cakes given to us on arrival were a nice touch too. It is... More
