“Terrific lcoation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Stayed 3 nights early March. King upstairs (was actually a queen + double bed). Very spacious unit. Balcony w/its own bench provided a relaxing place to watch the sunset and floor to ceiling views. Furnishings a bit worn & funky --- could stand updating. Very good lighting (quantity & quality) throughout the apartment. Terrfic amount of seating, kitchenette, dining area. Plenty of room to stretch out & be comfortable and very easy to prepare meals. . Likewise the bathroom had good sink, shelves, drawers, towel racks & good shower/tub combo.

Hosts have a well-maintained motel w/very nicely maintained grounds and an unobstructed view & access to Lake Te Anau.

Bonus: Washers & soap are provided no charge. You only pay a coule of NZD for drying. Ample on-site, off road parking.

Aside from towel changing if needed & trash removal, no cleaning of rooms while there.

We stayed here two nights. The apartment was very spacious - a large bedroom with 2 beds, kitchenette, and large living area with a nice view of the lake. Very well appointed. Staff were helpful. Limited free wifi. It was within walking distance of the main street where the restaurants are. The decor though is very dated. Regardless I would recommend it.

These apartments have a lovely view over the lake and a ten minute walk from the town. They feel a little dated, but are comfortable and adequate. There is use of a communal laundry, with free use of the washing machines (detergent provided), and coin-slot dryers.
There is a 200MB free daily internet use.

This motel is more like an apartment with bedroom and bathroom set behind the kitchen/living/eating area. The main area looks over the lake with beautiful views to the mountains. It is situated on the main road through town, but because the bedrooms are in the back of the unit, they are very quiet. The kitchen area is well-stocked with a nice-sized dining table. It was nice to had a doorway between the sleeping area & living area; so an early riser/late nighter doesn't disturb a sleeping partner. The motel is situated close enough to town to be able to walk for restaurants, etc. It is very clean and comfortable. We stayed here 2 nights. The first day, we drove to Mitford Sound, and the second day headed back to Queenstown to fly to Sydney. TeAnau is nicely located from which to travel to both Mitford & QT without spending all day in the car.

We had a room on the first floor which seem larger than those on the ground floor. Loved the balcony with great views of the lake, and the really comfortable leather recliners .
Small kitchen had all we needed.
The room is really large with a separate lounge to the bedroom. Huge bed which is very comfortable.
Nice extra touches like free wifi and free use of washing machine including washing liquid.
Really enjoyed our stay.

Comfy, spacious & very clean motel with spectacular views over lake towards mountains. Spent 3 nights in first floor accommodation on tour of South Island. Ideal! Large living/dining area (including 2x leather reclining chairs!) with comfortable partitioned off bedroom area. Well kitted out kitchette with provision of tea/coffee making facilities including ground coffee for cafetiere, renewed daily! Continuous external balcony at first floor level with bench seating, to take in scenery. 5-10 mins walk to town centre - 2x supermarkets, restaurants, other shops, etc. If loaded up, take shortcut down side of motel. Te anau ideal location for walks along lakeside, visiting Lake Manapouri (short drive) & Milford Sound (try www.fiordlandtours.co.nz).

I stayed for 6 nights, came to Te Anau for the peace and tranquility and was not disappointed... I could not fault the service that I received from the staff.
The unit was downstairs and my view from the lounge was fantastic, to be able to sit and have breakfast each morning and soak in that view was magical.
I could not fault the unit, it was very clean, and serviced each day. All my trips were organized and all I had to do was sit on the seat in the morning outside the motel for the bus to pick me up.
