4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2010

The room was clean and modern with a great bathroom, but as we were stuck in a corner there was nowhere to sit outside in the shade and that would have been good as it was very warm in the afternoon. Fine for a short stay. Te Anau is very touristy and busy with plenty of eating places and a great supermarket, not the IG,A with plenty of fresh food at reasonable prices.

We were booked into this motel by an agent. The level of cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The fittings were tired and nearly worn out, and the whole ambience felt as though the place was generally neglected.

We are sorry that the guests were not happy and do apolgise to them that we were not up to their expectations. The unit they stayed in offers comfortable accomdation with a spa bath. It did have a few minor maintance issues that they duley pointed out and they were fixed accordingly. We can only hope that you also read all the other positive reviews and make your own judgement. Come and have a look and if you see something that is not up to scratch, please give us some feedback as we welcome all feedback - be it positive or negative.

We had three very comfortable nights at the Anchorage Motel. Everything was brand new and spotlessly clean. Service was friendly and they looked after our baggage while we did a 3 day walk. 10 minute walk to everything in town and very close to the lake. Kitchen had everything we needed.

I do apolgise that these guests did not think that our service was up to scratch. We do try to please everyone however that is not always possible and apolgise to these guests that they thought we were not happy. I can assure you that we are very happy and take pride in what we offer our guests. We try to look after all our guests however we cant arrange fine weather all the time. As for the hair in the bathroom??????? Please look at all the other reviews by guests who have reviewed many other motels and judge for yourself.

Our party of four stayed three nights in this well located and friendly motel. The two bedroom chalet offered acceptable quality fittings and comfortable accommodation whilst equipment, parking and furniture were all very good . The management and cleaning staff were excellent, helpful , friendly and efficient. The motel has a good choice of free DVDs, extensive literature about local attactions and good laundry facilities. It is a Golden Chain motel so guests should get a loyalty card for 10% off rates. The location of this motel is very good, being just a few minutes walk from the lake itself. The lake features a very extensive Information Centre, with lots to take the interest on a wet day. Continuing past there is an enjoyable lakeside walk leading to the famous Kepler Trail. Te Anau is a great base from which to explore Fjordland and Milford Sound in particular. From here you have the advantage of being much nearer to the fjords than Queenstown so the opportunity to be flexible with trips there (and beat the weather) is much better.

Friendly owners and quiet comfortable clean rooms. One block back form the Lake front 3 - min walk, Stay in Te Anau for the Glow Worm Caves and so you can pick your day for the trip to Milford Sound- be warned it rains 2 out of 3 days at Milford!
