Stayed for 2 nights in the studio room. Check in was easy and was given a small bottle of fresh milk. The room was small but adequate. It has a small kitchen with microwave and cutlery, a small table and chairs, TV with 50channels with is a bonus for us, really good long bathroom bench with good toiletries. Heater towel... More

Very convenient location, especially for milford sound. Good layout, parking good, although a little tight. Free wifi was awesome. We used the laundry which was great. Staff were really friendly too :)

Reception was friendly, but the room had an odd smell (not terribly unpleasant, just odd). The beds were comfortable but one of the bed covers had obviously not been washed well as it smelled like a dirtier guest had stayed there prior. :o There didn't seem to be many other options in Te Anau since it's so small, though, so...

Hi, Thank you for your comments. I have reminded our great staff about any issues with smells of bedding. We do wash the bedspreads very regularly and are disappointed that it was not fresh smelling on your arrival. Our units are aired out every day once cleaned and some smells do linger around longer. We have environmentally friendly ways of... More

A place to stop if staying for a night or two. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Externally our BBQ had seen better days. Location is a couple of minutes drive from the town centre. Reception was lukewarm but professional. We visited the Glow Worm Caves and can recommend this attraction.

Reception lady was reel friendly I must say some of the up market places could learn from her. The room was clean however when having a shower the water backed up and filled the shower tray which was quite off putting. There was a hole in the wall in the spare room and the lounge couches were very uncomfortable. I... More

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we do try to please all our guests. I just wanted to clarify a few statements that you have made. The Gentleman that you talked to two doors down was upgraded to a similar unit by the management because he wanted a twin bed unit and his request... More

The room was quite spacious, very clean, comfortable and quiet. Kitchen facilities were also very good. The kitchen area was well equipped with everything you need to cook. There is even a barbeque in the back yard. We didn't miss anything. The bathroom was large and clean with floor heating, and ours had a corner spa. Perfect place to sleep... More

The suite was really spacious and looked updated. There were two bedrooms and a large living room. One bedroom had a full sized bed and the other had two twin beds. Unfortunately, we stopped in Te Anau just to sleep so we did not get to enjoy all of the accommodations. We stayed here in March 2014.

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting Milford Sound. Basic furnishings but adequate, felt a bit like being in a caravan! Clean and comfortable and very good value. Good amenities in the bathroom including make up remover pads!! Room was also made up daily. Used the laundry which was very handy. Very quiet and no noise from other guests at... More

Its a pity that my hubby and i stayed for only 1 night at this motel. The water pressure of the spa is very strong and relaxing! Great for people who just finished a day of kayaking or trekking at milford sound. The location is near to city centre (walking distance) and relatively peaceful and quiet. However, our concern was... More

Apartments situated only two minutes walk from Lake Te Anau and about ten minutes stroll to the town centre. The apartment appeared recently renovated in simple but nice fashion. Contained everything you would require to self cater and was spotlessly clean and very good value.
