“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Had a lovely lakeside unit overlooking the lake. Great kitchen utensils with electric hobs and fan. Older exterior with more up to date interior. Sky tv provided. Living room had double bed and single, and a tucked away alcove by the bathroom had two single beds. Bathroom did not have an extractor fan. Kids raved about the playground because it has so many different things there for them to play with. A little distance from town centre, but good for a walk or short drive. We felt was great value.

Stayed in a kitchen unit but as it rained the whole time we were there that I was sorry we didn't stay in a place with a bathroom. The bed was soft but Ok there is 2 blocks of facilities one really new and the other old. The staff were pretty friendly and helpful

Thankyou for your review. We do have a variety of accommodation choices which do include facilities which may have suited you better as it has been quite a wet January as you point out.

$84 for a tourist cabin with shared facilities? This offered poor value and I won't stay again. Cabin was cold but minimal cooking facilities were useful. Check in was efficient enough but staff member very cold & miserable!Wifi did not work and staff did not care. Ended up buying wifi which funnily enough did work. Would not return!

Thank you for your feedback which I shall address with Staff.
Not sure which particular Staff member was "cold and miserable" as all the Staff are very upbeat and attentive in usual circumstances.
Wifi can be slow if there are a lot of users, but we have had no problems with either free or paid internet lately if this is used correctly.

Te Anau is a must for people visiting South Island. The location of this place is very good and you can make a short walk along the beach to a restaurant in the evening. The superior studios with lake-view are brand new and very comfortable. Pick this one and you will be fine!

We stayed at Te Anau Lakeview Holiday Park for two nights before moving on to get some sleep. The place had lovely clean amenities. It is just across the road from the lake, the ideal location. Unfortunately the place was let down by inconsiderate guests and weak wrested security.

The policy states no parties etc. after 11pm but this polity is not actively enforced. The system relies on campers calling security. Two nights in a row party goers played on till 2am after security was called twice between 12.30 and 1am. Heard discussions between party goers and security - not effective.

New year or similar probably fair enough but this was not any of these. The worst nights sleep in several years camping.

Thank you for your review describing your recent stay. We were disappointed that your sleep was disturbed by other uncaring guests. Over the Christmas New Year period the Holiday Park is patrolled from 10.30 pm until after 3am by Staff and Management. At all other times the Manager or Staff do "rounds " of the Park from 11pm until well in to the morning stopping noise and speaking with guests intent on causing disturbances.
Persistent noise results in eviction from the Park,and this did occur on a couple of occasions over the holiday period. We shall discuss the process with staff to ensure their message to culprits is effective and instant.

I stayed at Te Anau Lakeview Holiday Park for a total of 4 days before and after my Milford Track hike and I was amazed at how nice, clean, and reasonable the place was! It's just across the road from the lake and the Department of Conservation (DOC) office, less than a ten minute walk along the waterfront from town, and very well maintained. My room was basic but clean, the kitchen was very clean and well stocked with plates, cutlery etc. and the toilets and showers were impeccable. Did I mention that it's clean? :-)

The staff were also very helpful and friendly and my only regret (and it's a BIG one) is that New Zealand is so far from Canada that I won't be able to return soon. If you're going to Te Anau, and you are looking for great value at a very nice place, I would HIGHLY recommend it!

Room Tip: They offer single rooms, camping spots, caravan spots, group areas etc. so there are lots of options...
