Even though this hotel filled up, it was very quiet and we slept great! It is within easy walking distance of everything in town. We enjoyed walking around the town. I was glad I made the decision to stay a block off the water instead of paying for a view over a roadway to the lake.

Stayed one night prior to doing the Hollyford Track; large spacious room with useable kitchen, small glass table with 2 chairs ; huge bathroom with shower over a spa bath; in ceiling fan heaters. Only $115/n - good value. Short 10 minute stroll through the park to town. Quiet, clean, no complaints. Might be cold in winter in the bathroom... More

We unfortuneately booked an ensuite studio room which was a disabled unit and very small. We viewed the other 1 bedroom units which did look very nice with plenty of room but we could not upgrade as they were all full, so our stay was a disappointment. The garden outside was pleasant and the motel only a short walk to... More

Maybe this time you will accept my true experience of this motel. I have no idea how this venue achieved 4+ stars Having stayed in an 'apartment room' with bedroom/living room separate, this particular room Number 9 was not up to scratch. The bed was at least comfortable. The bathroom was bare of shelving so wetpack had to be stowed... More

We stayed here in February 7/8th and our room was very clean and comfortable. Quiet location, 5 minute walk to the lake front and 10 minute walk to the town centre. Staff very friendly and happy to help. Good value for money, we have stayed once before and would recommend it as a very good motel.

Stayed at Anchorage motel in February 2014. This is the best motel we've ever stayed, It's quiet, it's clean and great equipment. Just ticked all the boxes. Location itself is 8 minutes walk to town centre or 5 minutes walk to the lake. Staff are friendly, checking in was a breeze, get to check in early even though usually check... More

Our room was the disabled room, so the bathroom was large & we had plenty of large towels. Clean & comfortable. Well equipped for light cooking. It is a short 5 minute walk to the lake front & a pleasant 10 - 15 minute walk into the town centre. We had a 2 night stay here in room 214. Despite... More

We felt very fortunate to book the stand-alone cottage, which was spacious and private -- very reasonably priced. Everything we needed. And a great location, too. Nice to have a laundry facility, although this was more expensive than at other motels on our trip (it was certainly better than a laundromat).

Hi, Thanks for your review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the comforts of the three bedroom house that adjoins the motel complex. It is a great place to spread out and relax with those home comforts. Thank you for staying with us. Thanks Nigel & Fiona More

We were 9 people on a tramping holiday to Te Anau. The rooms were a good size and nice and clean. Staff were helpful and they let us leave extra equipment with them so we did not have to carry it with us for our tramp. Very nice.
