Lovely motel with friendly staff and clean room. The room was a decent size with a double bed, sofa and kitchen area. We stayed here whilst visiting Milford Sound which was a nice scenic drive from here. The motel is in a nice quiet area with a park opposite which was being used by one or two dog walkers and...

We checked in at approximately 8.30pm on 19th Jan after emailing when we made the booking that we would arrive late as we would have a long drive. We also rang to let the owners know we were passing Queenstown. We were a little surprised by a fairly cool reception when we actually arrived half an hour earlier than expected.... More

Great people, a lovely clean room - and great to have kitchen facilities nearby. A great, quiet place to stay. Laundry also available .... BUT if your room is next to the laundry it is very noisy. Well set out room and bathroom. There is room to swing a cat:)

We stayed here for two nights when the town was very busy. Every lodging establishment had a no vacancy sign. We checked in a bit early and it was no problem. The room was spotless and there was a full range of cooking utensils. The room is large, has heat and a great balcony. While there is no onsite dining... More

A family run hotel that is nice and clean and an excellent bargain in Te Anau. We found the wet shower in our unit to be especially nice. It's a quick walk to the the lakefront and all of the restaurants and pubs in Te Anau. Highly recommended.

Nice comfortable place to stay. I found the staff friendly, the room was spacious enough for two adults and I particularly liked the walking distance to the main town which has enough of everything that you will need. I recommend you look at parklands if you want to stay at Te Anau.

Needed cheap accommodation as we planned to be spending all day in Milford sound and it's nearby tracks. A great motel for those stopping by in Te Anau that just need a place to rest your head. The bed covers are dated as the pictures show but this is to be expected from a motel! The owners also seem lovely.

The first impression of the motel is, that it is not centrally located. But it surely is, because with a short walk crossing the park in front of the motel you are in the middle of the town. Spacious appartment, a little bit outdated. The bathroom was recently restyled, which looked great. Free parking, free wifi, close to shops and... More

Very basic but nice and clean place to spend a night before a cruise to doubtful sound. Cabin has a small kitchen with fridge and sink. Laundry available. Right in the park few minutes from city center. You can get to any place in town with a short walk. Very reasonable prices.

This motel has clean rooms and basic necessities. The location is quite good as well - Te Anau is so small that everything is within walking distance. We stayed for two nights in a double room and found it difficult to sleep. It was hot and there was no cooling in the room - fan or air con. There is... More
