The only downside, if i really have... More

We stayed two nights in a large very clean and comfortable room. We used the barbecue one evening and ate at an adjacent picnic table. The location is a little way from the town centre but there is a short walk to the lakeside and its wonderful views. All rooms are at ground level and ideal for access by disabled.

A beautifully presented two bedroom apartment. Exceptionally clean, and we just loved the presentation of bathroom products, towels etc. Comfortably furnished. Easy stroll into town centre. The whole complex is lovely and even though it was booked out it was very quiet. A true credit to the very friendly, helpful owners.

Rennie and Mary were exceptional hosts willingly assisted with our special requirements as we travelled with 2 people with disabilities. Their Koha spa products were lovely and the room was clean, tidy and very homely. I will return on my next holiday and highly recommend their motel for a quiet location in the beautiful town of Te Anau.

We made a reservation via Booking for a Studio unit with Kitchenette & Kitchen. It was very disappointing to find only standard hotel room facilities ( microwave, mini bar & electric kettle) and to leave all our food in the car and go out for a restaurant. I would expect the owner for a proper apology and at least partial... More

MezTeAnau, Owner at Arran Motel, responded to this review

I totally understand your disappointment finding that there was a kitchenette as opposed to a kitchen when you checked in. I gave you the opportunity to find other accommodation without any charge and you indicated that you would let me know what you planned to do. After your complaint to Booking.com I agreed to a 10% refund and asked Booking.com... More

Stayed here for three very comfortable nights. The room was well equipped and the bed extremely comfortable. Only negative for us was that apart from the microwave the only cooking facility was the barbecue outside. This worked well for us but it would have been preferable to have a hot plate of some form in the room. Also there was... More

Thank you Mary for your hospitality. We stayed for two nights. Our room was well equipped with crockery and cutlery, spotlessly clean and the bed was comfortable. The wifi was included and unlimited. Mary was very helpful with information about the district. We very much enjoyed our stay.

After not so nice accomodation in Queenstown it was nice to arrive here. The rooms were generously sized. Mary was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean. Bed was comfortable and rooms were quiet. I could have easily stayed here longer.

The Motel is nice and the staff is friendly. We stayed there for 2 Nights and everything was fine. They have a gas grill in the yard which you can use for your own barbecue. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfy. You can walk to the lake and to the town centre within 15 minutes. Nice location.
