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.

We stayed 2 nights at the Parklands in a 1 bedroom unit while we went up to Milford Sound. The rooms were excellent and the bed very comfortable. The Motel is about 150m from the lake and 1 block from the main street through a nice park. However the complex needs a touch of care to get into the brilliant... More

We drove right past this place not realising it was our motel. It looked very tired and a bit unkept from the outside but to the owners credit our room was very large, clean and comfortable. We didn't receive the warm enthusiastic greeting we had received in most other motels in New Zealand so our first impressions were not the... More

Had a comfortable stay in the motel for the three of us. One thing we really liked was the spacious shared kitchen. The room was well furnished and beds were comfy. Good value for money and good location from the lake.

The room was clean and we had enough space. Clean bathroom, with champoo and soap. De biggest plus for me was the kitchen. Everything was clean and well taken care off. We had a room at the back of the motel so no noise from the street. Slept like a baby!

No one goes to Te Anau to sit in the room. The room was of ample size, an older but not unkempt facility, the shared kitchen was a bit awkward (hoping for refrigerator room and a free toaster) and the parking was so close to the living space it could be disruptive. Having said that there appears to be little... More
