The Parklands Motel is just one street back from the main shopping precinct, and provided clean and comfortable rooms at a good price. The views from the room were excellent, and this made a good base to view Milford Sound.

All the previous reviews are correct. Great value motel, close to town centre and lake. We stayed 5 nights as there is so much to see here apart from a day trip to Milford Sound. Beautiful walks in all directions. Hosts are friendly and informative. You can't do better in Te Anau then the Parklands. Just a tip - see... More

Great, clean accommodation for our family on a budget. Friendly hosts, laundry facilities and shared kitchen with at least two of everything you need. Plenty of room for a family of four. I would happily return and stay any time.

We spent three nights in Te Anau at the Parklands and had a lovely experience! We checked in in the early afternoon and our reception was friendly and helpful and remained so during our stay. The motel is located across the street from the park, a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance to shops and restaurants. We are presently on a... More

Lovely room, great hosts. We arrived at Parklands in a broken down hire car - our hosts were very friendly and went out of their way to help get our car sorted while we walked the Milford Track. We couldn't ask for more, thank you!

The tone of a motel stay is often set with the check in process and unfortunately the woman that settled us into our room did not demonstrate any interest in anything other than giving us our key and showing us how to use it. The room itself was nice, basic and definitely in need of some updating. There was a... More

Doesn't pretend to be anything more than it is. Currently in the middle of refurbishing, the motel is quite basic. It really is exactly what it says on the tin. We had booked a one bedroom apartment - true, there were two separate living areas though the decor is in desperate need of the refurb the rest of the place... More

One block back from the main street which is perfect, very close to the Lake. Brilliant Park across the road, beautiful gardens. Check-in was friendly & quick. Not sure what other people have noticed as we found all staff to be friendly. Room was clean & tidy large in size. Great sleep as no noise. Bathroom a little dated, nice... More

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
