When I walked in to my room I wasn't sure what to make of the 'retro' decor. It looked pretty dated, so dated that it may have been decorated by captain cook himself. I can see why the captain picked this room though as the view of the lake is beautiful. Plenty of space too; one of the largest motel... More

We shared a 3 bedroom apartment with friends. Not big enough for friends as only one toilet and small area inside. Family is different perhaps. We thought we had room service every day but this was not the case. The manager was very friendly and easy going. The hotel was within 5min walking distance to the town. The beds were... More

We spent three nights in one of the 1 bedroom apartments. We found the rooms spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room to spread out during our stay. We were given a warm welcome on arrival and found the room quiet. The weather was great for our stay so we made use of the table outside to enjoy the evenings.

Stayed one night at Lakeside on way to Milford Sound, and contemplated a 2nd night as we very much enjoyed our stay there - unfortunately we were pressed for time on our short NZ holiday and had to move on. We had a family unit separate to the main motel building, and it was very spacious, clean, warm, quiet, comfortable... More

We pre-booked 2 nights at a reasonable price and were pleasantly surprised to find it was a large room , recently renovated to a good standard, and with a great view over the lake. It had a full kitchen, free wifi and plenty of available parking. Would highly recommend it.!

Arrived in Te Anau after a long drive to find this lovely town a little piece of Heaven on Earth. The hotel is well positoned on the Lake with the Snow capped mountains in the distance gracing us with their presence. Very quiet. The facilities in this hotel in particular the kitchen equipment, excellent quality. Very spacious and comfortable unit.... More

Lovely big warm unit, I think even the bathroom/toilet floors were heated. Great on a cold winter night. Uninterrupted lake views. Really good for families, spacious with full kitchen. Would definitely recommend.

We arrived at Te Anau and checked in. When we got into the room, it was very hot and we couldn't turn down the under-floor heating. This made for two very hot, uncomfortable nights despite the weather outside being quite cool. The WiFi was also not working, and we could not contact the reception despite numerous attempts. A shame, becuase... More
