My husband and I recently stayed two nights here. For the first five minutes we stood while the motelier complained about the commission booking agencies charged. He appeared quite put out that we had not booked directly, thereby saving him money. There was no enquiry as to our day, our travels etc. we were provided with a small jug of... More

We stayed here for 1 night only, and had a good stay. Comfy bed. Kitchen was fairly well equipped, thankfully there is a big shared kitchen in the next block you can borrow some bits from. We had a studio room, no stovetop just a Microwave, toaster & kettle. Owner let me clean my car with his hose & stuff... More

This motel is ideally located in town. The room was new and comfortable. Best of all, Gary was amazingly helpful and knowledgeable. He booked all our tours and we didn't even have to visit the i-site in Te Anau.

This motel is exceptional value and was close to perfect for our purposes. Good and free Wi-Fi, very close to shops, the lake and other facilities. Comfortable, spacious room with access to common kitchen which was well supplied and maintained. Gary and Shona were very welcoming and helpful. A great base for activities such as a trip to Doubtful Sound... More

Old looking room, but clean and large. Very nice common kitchen. Best shower I have had in years. Central location. Free and GOOD wifi. Nice yard. Very close to city center and glow worm tour departure point. Didn't move my car for the whole 2 days I was there

The building was refurbishing when I visit. It is good place near park. and quiet. The owner was kind. Park near the hotel main street is across the park and there were supermarkets and restaurant. So It was convenient place.

Location was good, within walking distance of centre and bars, clean accommodation. Friendly helpful staff. Free parking and WiFi. Good place to use as a base camp for traveling to Milford Sound or other places nearby.

This was our second time (Sep 2011 and now Sep 2014) staying here and we brought some friends too. We were 3 couples and we took 3 rooms (no.8, 9, 10) for 2 nights (15 & 16 Sep). It's a little away from the lake but the rates are very reasonable. It's so conveniently situated that you don't need to... More

Nice big room here and clean, but could do with a bit of modernising. Reception not overly friendly but satisfactory. The door locks are a pain - ours needed replacing and you need special skills to get back into your room. We would probably stay here again though - these days it's nice to have a large room, even if... More

Taken to units by a grumpy welcome, had to clean the bedside cabinet which was sticky, dusty and had candlewax on it. Beds very comfortable and separate communal kitchen area was clean and had everything that we required.Close to all attractions.
