This motel is comfortable with good sized rooms and very good showers ( Better than most 5 star Hotel Showers). Convenient place to drive to/from Queenstown with a view to a Milford Sound cruise as Te Anau is at the start of the spectacular Milford Road. This is a much better option than taking a tour bus to Milford Fjord... More

Strongly recommended! The people were friendly, spacious unit, the bathroom was massive and the shower was really comfortable! Free wifi for 5 devices. All 4 of us enjoyed the stay and would definitely come back again if we are visiting Te Anau again.

We traveled all over the South Island of New Zealand and found many great hotels. This was definitely one of them. There are many close by eating places and you can walk to great views of the area. We had 5 couples with us and all loved this place. The people who ran it were so friendly.

When we knew we were visiting Te Anau again, there was only one place we considered staying....Arran Motel, where we had stayed in 2009. We weren't disappointed - Mary even put us in the same lovely unit we'd had before. It had all the facilities we needed - large comfortable bedroom and lounge, big bathroom and good kitchen facilities. The... More

Great two bedroom units. Easily could sleep six people. Very clean and tidy with all kitchen amenities included. Free WiFi. Very quiet and comfortable. Five minute walk to main shops and two minutes from the lake.

Stayed here and at Aden. Both are good choices. This one had better water pressure in the shower, and truly unlimited internet. Both make it a better choice for me. They didn't have a sink in the kitchenette which was not great and might bother someone more than it did me. Not as good a DVD collection, but still good... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in a one bedroom apartment. The accommodation was spacious with a large lounge/dining area and a small, but well equiped, kitchenette. The location is very peaceful being a 10 minute or so walk from the town centre. Would recommend a stay here, good value.

We stayed at the Arran Hotel on our over night trip to the Milford area. The room was very clean, large and tidy. The best thing was the free wifi. Great value and close to town. No wonder it was full.

We stayed 4 nights in February and the motel was full every night. the motel is situated away from any traffic noise in quiet side road - 20 minutes walking distance to town for us pensioners - Kiwi's will say 10mins). Studio's are average size, nicely furnished, decent modern shower-room, sitting area outside our unit or in a small shared... More
