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

Bit of a mixed review. On the positive side, the owners let us keep our car on the property while we walked the Milford Track and our food in the fridge. This was very nice. Also, our rooms (two visits) were very nice and clean. The second one (No. 8 was quite cramped). The kitchen is large, clean and well-equipped... More

I'm not sure where to go with this review. The place is family owned, but I get the sense that they'd rather not have pesky guests. They were basically friendly, however, when a nasty stained sheet was pointed out to one of the owners, it was clear that we were interrupting the routine to ask for it to be changed... More

The rooms are a little dated, but the service is fine. We stayed in a 2 BR apartment, and although found it to be a little cramped, was manageable. The kitchen facilities are shared, and reasonable quality for the price charged. The rooms can get a little hot in the afternoons, and the curtains don't completely block out the light.... More
