The lodge offers hotel, motel and backpackers accomodation. We stayed in the backpackers building in a private double with ensuite. The room had a double and single bed and a spacious ensuite. It was simple but had everything we needed. The building had dated decor but felt homely and warm. The kitchen was fully equipped and overlooked a lake and... More

If you are going to fiordland national park, this is probably one of few choices you have, but even then i wouldn't recommend the motel unit. If you are going the the sounds or te anau then it is definitely the wrong location (25km from te anau and 90km from Milford sound). The motel was slightly musty with dated furniture... More

Many people stay here before and/or after walking the Milford Track. This time we didn't stay but rather wish we had. The lodge is under new management since we were last here 6 years ago and the atmosphere is first class - welcoming, friendly and professional. Tanya is a gem. We called by on two occasions for coffee and freshly... More

Loved it! Yes it was really '50's but Tania was so helpful and the view and atmosphere just great. I loved the value too. Would recommend to anyone who is looking forward to a down to earth place to stay.

The hotel description mentions views of the lake, we couldn't see any motel units that would have a view. Possible there are some views from the lodge "Hotel rooms". The motel unit was very old and tired looking and not particularly clean, although it wasn't filthy dirty either. It was just the sort of place where you felt you wanted... More

This property promotes itself as being in Te Anau - it is 28 kilometers out of Te Anau. It is poorly fabricated, poorly refurbished, poor 1980s decorated and considering the potential for views, the views are poor. There was no breakfast or food offered so you need to drive 28km. Of course there is a small kitchen to make you... More

We booked in for one night, needing accommodation in Te Anau Downs. We had a backpacker room with a queen bed and a set of bunks. The manager was very friendly and helpful with a wonderful attitude and made us feel at home. The kitchen had everything we needed, the living / dining area of the lodge was cosy and... More

We stayed here for one night en route to Milford sound early the next morning. It is located about 30kms past Te Anau and in a lovely location by the lake. You need to self cater if you stay here so we brought food for dinner and breakfast with us. They do offer limited breakfast menu and coffee/tea/cakes during the... More
