We stayed two nights in May, a one bedroom unit with full cooking facilities. Very spacious unit and very modern. The best thing was the heated floor in the bathroom, great if you need to use the bathroom during the night. Staff were helpful and very reasonably priced. Great location within walking distance to town.

We had a one bedroom suite with a fully equipped kitchen. The unit was spacious and very clean, a comfortable place to stay in the rain. Excellent wifi. The owner was very helpful and patient with our questions and concerns over the weather as we had booked a trip to Doubtful Sound - also excellent! - , and he was... More

We went for one night with our family, loved the place and ended up staying for three nights instead. Very well done up, all little things you need, were taken care of. Free wifi, kitchen fully equipped. As the town was very dead, we could not have survived if we did not have this place where we made our fresh... More

The room was basic but very clean, everything needed for a comfortable stay. The reception staff were knowledgeable and helpful in suggesting what we should do to get to Milford given that we had only one day and the road was closed due to snow. Fortunately, he was right, and the road re-opened. Good value, helpful. The location is a... More

The hotel was very neat and clean. And the rooms had a small kitchen also, which is very useful. The lake is walking distance from the hotel. Also, most tour operated buses stop at the hotel for pickup.

This hotel is a great price. You get a good sized room, very clean and free wifi. Which is kind of hard to come by in NZ. They have fully stocked kitchenettes and are close to the lake, shopping and restaurants. This was our second time there. The staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are quiet and you don't... More

This motel looks small from outside but our room had everything and felt like home. I'm glad we stayed the night here after Milford sound to refresh , wish I could stay longer. My daughter also loved it. The town centre is pretty close and the streets quiet. My room was definitely five star! Thanks.

This is a wonderful motel. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and clean. The rooms have kitchenette facilities which are great for simple meals. It is a few minutes walk to the center of town and to the lakeshore. Internet is included which is very refreshing and most helpful. Also provided is a TV package with numerous Sky channels which...

We were pleasantly surprised when we entered the motel room. Anchorage was actually the cheapest hotel we've booked in both the North and South islands, and it is easily one of the best we've stayed in. It is clean and modern, and is in a good location close to town. We would happily go back when we visit te anau... More

We stayed here in March 2014 in a one bedroom cottage located to the side of the main motel units. Spacious, clean and very quiet. Good kitchen with everything we needed and a large bathroom with a spa bath in addition to the shower. Short 10min walk along the lakeside to the centre of Te Anau. Free wi-fi was available... More
