“Bargain room!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

We booked a standard room for $75 direct on their website (cheaper than booking.com etc) and we were upgraded to a delux room. It was such a bargain, the room was lovely, the bathroom was modern and clean. There were tea and coffee facilities. It is in the centre of te anau and has a pub attached to it with a fire and serving cheap pub grub. We used the laundry facilities which were $3 per machine. My only gripe was that although they advertise "guests enjoy free wifi in the lobby" in reality it is only 30 minutes for free, for one person per booking per stay. Apart from that, it is a large characterless impersonal hotel but when you pay that little it is a bit of luxury for an absolute bargain.

Sprawling place that seems to take up an entire block. Spacious room, well appointed, plenty of parking (with separate areas so you can park close to your room). Right in the centre of town and only a stone's throw from the lakefront and tourist office. Helpful staff.

Nice and clean hotel, perfect location (right in the centre of the city), staff I think it's Paul, Jocelyn and Fernando were very courteous and helpful.

Room Tip: Superior Suite is the best, spacious, value for money

A great location in the middle of the township. Good room for the price. Basic room with dated but tidy fittings. Very noisy, no soundproofing between rooms. Could hear the neighbours arguments and tv all night long. Also the sounds of running water from other rooms. They had lost my booking but quickly accomodated me.

Stayed a few nights while touring the sounds near Te Anau. It reminded me of a slightly nicer Holiday Inn. I slept really well in the comfortable beds, and took advantage of the big bathtub with the spa jets after long days of hiking. The location is really great for a variety of activities, and you can walk to many restaurants and shops. The internet was fast. No complaints!
