We enjoyed two pleasant nights at the Alpine View Motel in Te Anau. The motel has a few 'view' rooms which, with additional cost, can be reserved in advance.

Fantastic motel in Te Anau! walking distance to town center. Room was spacious and clean, service was excellent. Had full kitchen facilities and beds were super comfy. Was nice being able to park right by the room for easy unloading/loading. 10/10 would recommend.

Great location. Excellent room & facilities, with a fully equiped kitchen. Very convinient. The hosts are kind and helpful. We even had a barbeque next to the room. The WiFi- the only problem. If the WiFi would have been OK, the rate would be 10. We were told by the owners that they are in the process of improving it,...

Hi Yair, Thank you for your review and kind words. Yes, the WiFi is the most discussed piece of equipment! We are going to improve this as much as we can being in Rural Southland. It will be a project for the winter months this year to research into better systems. Thank you again and we hope to see you...

Very lovely motel hosted by a young family. Our room was cosy and with a lot of nice details, like the way the towels were folded. It was big enough for staying for a couple of days. Cooking was possible - it included a full kitchen.

Lovely little motel one street back from the lake. The motel is an older style but the rooms are spacious and everything was very clean. A small kitchenette with everything you need for a few days stay. Bathroom and walk-in shower were great and also very clean. Easy parking in front of our room. Staff were very friendly and helpful...

We stayed in a studio room. The room, especially bed linen and toilet were clean. Basic cooking can be done. Most importantly, the place was quiet at night even though it is by the road. The furniture was a bit old but well maintained. Only the shower needed improvement because the shower head was really small and could only give...

Great hotel for adventure in one of the most impressive national park of the world - Milford Sound. The price level was acceptable since the general high cost for this area. Close to Restaurants and super markets.
