This motel is very comfortable with everything supplied. Pretty cosy with my two teenage sons and our gear but great if you don't mind being cramped and cosy! Lots of little extras like lavender bags in the bedroom and chocolates on pillows. Bathroom ok but shower head not great - sprayed everywhere. Easy walking distance to lots of restaurants.

First off, you don't have lake views from the room, but that is okay. It is VERY close to the lake. It is also within walking distance to shops and restaurants in town. What we loved about rooms in NZ is that there were always cooking supplies so you can make basic meals and not have to eat out all... More

The Lodge is right across the Lake Te Anau and convenient to the center of the village and associated shopping areas. Views from the room of the Lake are limited---but if you are inclined you can get a sideways look. This did not matter much to me as I spent loads of time out along the lake during the days....

Friendly staff, get left chocolates every day next to your bed, lavender bag on your pillow, hot clean water (seems like an obvious one but we just moved from down the road that had none), parking spot right outside your door, your own practical cooking facilities, great central location but still quiet. All round superb value! :)

Stayed with family the place is bang on lakefront drive and overseeing the magnificent lake offering spectacular views. You are unlikely to get straight views from the rooms as they look a way 90 degrees off the lake but close to practically the heart of the little town. Service and housekeeping was super. Lost hot water once at the night... More

Very comfortable large room. Would be a great place to stay for a week or so, with lots of seating and space in the room. Service was very friendly. Best stocked kitchen we came across in our trip. Very close to town, a nice short stroll. Not quite lake front - but nothing is - it's just across the street

Very spacious lodge by the lake. Has everything you need for a lodge. Cooking place, microwave, fridge. Walking distance to most ammenities. Food, petrol, supermarket, resturants are just a stone throw away. Very cosy. Will be prefect if there are cable tv programs wired up for a quiet night.

We spent a night at this nice place during our self-driving tour of the South Island. Clean room, good location, and very attentive and professional service. The breakfast was pretty good. Good choice when you visit Te Anau.
