Good location for visiting Te Anau. The room was compact but had everything we needed for our two night stay. Laundry facilities and on site parking available. Short walk across the park for restaurants and shops. A good location also for visiting the fiords. The owners were helpful and gave us useful information about the area.

The managers are friendly and supportive: they booked a great cruise of Milford Sound for us (Cruise Milford: small, smooth and friendly). The hotel is ideally located for the town. There is a laundry and the rooms are comfortable. This is a good value, friendly place to explore Milford Sound (an easy drive: ignore those who suggest the coach).

Really helpful hostess who let us keep our car and belongings there while we went on a 3 day trek. The room was spotless, fine shower, easy walking into the very nice town with lots of shops and places to eat. Great base for hiking, touring the Milford Sound, etc.

We had booked two nights here and found the motel to be very well positioned being very close to both the lake and Town Centre. The check-in was very smooth and friendly. Our room was very well presented, and spotlessly clean. The layout was very well thought out although there was little room at the foot of the king bed... More

The rooms were compact but comfortable and well equipped. Friendly and helpful staff and leaving our car and luggage behind when we went hiking did not present any problems. Also an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Highly recommended!
