We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the Fiordland area. The owners are lovely and more than willing to help with suggestions of where to go and what to see during our time. The rooms are clean and tidy with a mini fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle. Perfect for us as we usually just have a light breakfast while... More

Nice place and excellent owners- we started to drive to Milford Sound but while crossing Te Anau, thought of checking with the Motel if we could make an early check-in at 10am. Usual check-in time is 2pm all over NZ, but the owners were too accomodative to allow us to check in in one of 3 rooms booked for us.... More

Stayed here for two night as a base to travel to Milford sound, nice town and simple but clean motel. The was a bit old and was a little loud. The roof faced west and got a bit of afternoon sun, which is quite hot until about 8pm.

The hotel was layed back and fine... good facility, location, and beautiful area of NZ. The staff was a bit grumpy, but maybe a long working day?... enjoyed stay but probably won't do extended trip in the area.

Normal Motel, normal setup, normal service, normal situation, but unfortunatelly unjustified high price. We could not find anything special about this place. Nothing was bad but the price was just too much for what you get.

We recently enjoyed 10 days holiday in Te Anau at the very comfortable Arran Motel. The one bed apartments are large and well cared for. The owners were friendly and very helpful. This is a well maintained motel and I have no problem recommending the Arran to my friends and family.

A very clean and tidy motel in a great position. Close to town with great views of mountains and lakes. Decor is a little dated, especially the furniture and bedspreads. Lounge was very uncomfortable and didn't really accommodate 4 people. Big bathroom with great shower but a bit squishy when using the toilet. Very friendly and welcoming staff who made... More

The owners were very helpful and friendly. They advised on several places to eat and also on other places to visit on the rest of our tour. The units were very clean. Very good value for money. Would be happy to stay again and recommend.

I spent two nights at this motel and had a mainly positive experience. Check in was swift and the spot for the car (numbered) was right in front of the room. The room was quite big and bright (there is glass on the whole entrance’s side with a big sliding door) and the furniture, a table with wicker comfy chairs,... More

Didn't enjoy my stay here to be honest, we needed a stop over night or 2 for driving to Milford Sound, being the middle of summer (25c temps) the rooms were unbearably hot and didn't cool down to at least 1am, so wasn't nice at all. No air-con by the way. Not stayed in a Motel before to be honest... More
