My wife and I were touring New Zealand, on a 15-day tour arranged through Travelmarvel by APT, and so all hotel arrangements were made in advance by them. For that reason, I have no idea of the cost of the room or how well the hotel communicates with customers making direct bookings. We stayed here for one night, after visiting Milford Sound on our way from Queenstown to Dunedin. The hotel was quite dated, but fine for our needs. As a large group, we were allocated room near the rear of the hotel, so had no real view. However, as the hotel is situated on the shore of Lake Te Anau, just across a relatively quiet road, this meant it was ideal for catching the beautiful sunset over the lake and mountains. The room was fairly spacious and had a comfortable bed, which was the most important thing for us on a one-night stay. I’ll attach photos of the sunset to this review to show the advantage of the hotel location.

Nice big complex with friendly reception staff. Room was nice and fairly spacious but bathroom was a bit cramped (for big people). Everything was as clean as a whistle. No microwave in room - assuming that we were being encouraged to utilise the motel's on-site restaurant. Oh, and the parking spaces are REALLY narrow.

The Kingsgate in Te Anau is an older hotel but makes for a comfortable stay. The bed was very comfortable and the shower has great pressure.

The rooms get pretty hot in summer but we were provided a very good fan which really helped.

Didn’t try the restaurant but the menu looked pretty good!

Would stay again.

No air con so hot at night in mid summer
Standard buffet breakfast. Ok set evening meal

Fantastic staff and decent accommodation.

Rooms and buffet breakfast were as you’d expect, nothing amazing but still good.

The staff were friendly and super helpful. Our hotel manager even offered to drive myself and a friend to the start of the Kepler track so that we could fill our afternoon with a hike. Fast forward 6.5 hours and he also came and picked us up, saving us about 10-15km worth of extra walking along the roadside.

This was a very basic motel room and the most expensive accommodation we have had so far, too expensive for what we got. There was a gentleman at reception plus 2 other staff and he didn’t offer to help some older ladies carry their luggage down the stairs. The buffet was wonderful and the rest of the staff were friendly. I would not recommend.

We both were very disappointed in the customer service. When we checked in the lady was not very helpful when asking about the local area and what to do she was very short with us and not plesent. We traveled all around the south island as we were on honeymoon and stayed in many hotels and both this kingsgate and kingsgate in dunedin were hotels we will jot recommend,in fact all of the other hotels gave somethings small as a gesture to our honeymoon but Kingsgate didn't want to know.We will not recommend both hotels to anyone we know going there from Ireland.

The hotel is dated, but clean throughout. The restaurant food, and staff were very good. The room was large, and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel and restaurant overlook the lake and are just a short walking distance from the village centre.

From the time my sister (who is disabled) and I arrived the staff showed us outstanding kindness and support. The Hotel room was clean and very comfortable and on the ground floor so we didn't have to take luggage etc too far. The food at the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner was amazing - fresh and tasty. Prices were very reasonable and quality was exceptional. The restaurant staff were very friendly and accommodating. When we were having difficulty getting to our Milford Sound tour the manager offered to have one of the staff members drive us to the meeting place and then picked us up when we arrived home later that day. From the Hotel you can walk along the lake towards the town if you need to pick up any incidentals. Beautiful views from the front of the Hotel. Loved the two nights we were there.

We travel very often and can honestly say we have never been welcomed so friendly and treated so great. Although an older building, it was very clean and welcoming. Room was very spacious with a small living area. Coffee station and toiletries was very good. We had a room with a reasonable lake view. We had to do some laundry while there. It was so easy in huge machines. We stayed there on by birthday and was treated with a lovely breakfast. Although a small selection, it was extremely tasty and freshly made. We wanted to stay for breakfasts on other mornings but could not as we had to leave early. Thank you so much for an awesome stay. Will be back again.

Sorry I did not use the laundry facilities at this hotel, however most of the laundry facilities I used at hotels in NZ were quite cheap just a few dollars and easy to use.
