This is a lovely family run motel with great hospitality. Rooms are clean, very large with kitchen separate and very well equipped - handy for home cooked meals as Te Anau is expensive. Internet access is good and unlimited. Only slight downside is that this is a good 5-10 minutes walk into town.

If you want to go back in time, this is the place to stay. Everything was clean, tidy and comfortable but very dated. We stayed in the family unit which was quite large. Tony was fantastic. He organized our direct bus trip to Queenstown as I had made an incorrect booking going back to Dunedin. Two essential tours are Milford... More

Intended to stay three nights but enjoyed Te Anau and the Alpenhorn Motel so much we stayed five nights in November, 2014. Very personable ownership...Tony Austin, owner, was super helpful with recommendations and securing reservations for outings. Free in room wifi! For the money, has to be the best place to stay in Te Anau!

Absolutely nice motel. The owners are very helpful and have a lot of tips and information. Rooms were very clean and had a nice terrace. Nice place to stay. Only negative point for me... the shower head is pretty low.

Run by a local family pretty casual. However we were only there for a night and it was close to town and the lake, walking distance. The bed was ok not great but we slept. Needs an update there were other motels that looked better and probably similar pricing.

Awesome place to stay. Perfect place to sleep the night on your way to Milford sounds. The room was clean, spacious and warm. Had all the cooking facilities as well. You can book your tour for the Milford sounds with the motel. Plenty of places to eat dinner in Te Anau and places to shop as well!. I recommend the... More

We stayed for 2 nights. As it was one road back from the lake front it was a quiet, comfortable place to stay. The owner, Tony was a very welcoming host. Would stay there again if we returned to Te Anau.

Stayed for a night in Nov-14 and it was just what we needed. We were with a 5 year old and it was a place for an overnight stay. Was one week away from the lake so it meant less noise which was good. A number of DVD's were available for overnight use. The weather was cold but the room... More

We stayed for 4 nights and could not have been happier with our time in Te Anau, the surrounding area and with the Alpenhorn. The hosts were friendly, kind and had many great suggestions for things to do. Be sure to book your Milford/Doubtful sound tours through them! The room was spacious and had all the necessities. It was really... More

We stayed here two nights over the New Year period, principally to tour to Doubtful Sound on New Year's Day. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and were able to assist us with things such as using the coin-operated laundry. The accommodation is an older-style room with kitchenette (including a variety of kitchen utensils) and represented good value at this... More
