Great value compared to other rooms we've been in. Everything you need is provided for unless you want to cook, there's no sink or cooker but we don't need either of them. 10min from the centre. Nice lady at the reception. Great cleaning service, they even watched my cups.thx!

Stayed one night in a one-bedroom unit during quiet season. Single storey motel with plenty of carparking a block from the lake. The room is large and spacious, with an additional bed in the living area. Cooking facilities is handy. The beds are some of the best we've slept on, and has a good strong shower. Free wifi is commendable,... More

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.
