“isolated but great views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I agree with Rob Te Anau Downs is a long drive from town but the views and quiet are well worth it. Average facilities (Laundry, kitchen etc) but waking up to the sound of birds instead of cars and having an empty shore line to explore at night - priceless, Remember to keep doors closed as sandflies can be a problem

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2006

Best western advertised with a bar and restaurant, but on arrival, we were told the bar and restaurant was not open tonight for dinner or in the morning for breakfast. Clearly not happy they did agree to provide the continental breakfast in our room free of charge. Had to go back 28 kms to Te Anau for a meal. Room very clean although a little basic. Good views over the lake and mountains and of course that much closer to Milford sound. This hotel shares the site with backpackers and another hotel chain, but no-one else seen here.
Best Western had our e-mail address so very annoyed they didn't advise of the restaurant closure.
