Stayed here for one night in June 2013. We were welcomed by the friendly receptionist in the modern reception area. She gave us plenty of information about Te Anau and our planned trip to Milford Sound the next day. A good first contact.
We had booked a villa, away from the main hotel and were struck by the contrast. The villas, although some updates have been made (e.g. Plasma TV and some furniture updates) were looking tired as we're the surrounding outside areas. The bathroom in particular needs a refresh - it looks at least 30 years old. The room was clean however.
We didn't see the main hotel rooms or the restaurant, so our review is based on the villas and common facilities.
