Fiordland Hotel/Motel
Ranked #22 of 22 Hotels in Te Anau
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights in a room just a few metres away from the main complex. We had our own small kitchen area and balcony looking towards the lake & mountains. The bathroom area was a bit cramped and dated but for what we paid we can have no complaints. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to the main area for food etc. Overall very good value.

this place surprised me,after staying here years ago,it has been refitted etc and is awesome now and competes with all the rest in town,modern style rooms flat screen tvs good outlook from our room,was going to have breakfast her at $12.50 per person but e mail came back to say book now as breakfast very busy on a friday and it was $15,well i cancelled that as breakfasts in the town are around $10,from what i saw the breakfast was not even on on friday as only 2 lots in the whole complex,i know the road was shut but even so we not on a tour must be treated equally as we here on business and can be repeat business,great for a special deal

Room Tip: you must be keen on walking or have a car, a wee way from the town centre,need to check on restauran...

Fiordland motel is not fancy and does need renovating, but it was clean and comfortable - ticked the boxes...
It's on outskirts of town, so a car is useful.
Great views over the mountains and close to the lake.
It's not somewhere to spend the day relaxing in the room / hotel, but for a base while travelling to Milford Sound or around Lake Te Anu it's ideal.

I stayed for one night - in the hotel section, where the room had obviously been recently refurbished and was clean with good quality bed linen - pretty basic facilities, but nothing even remotely similar to the last 2 reviews. The place was dead, about 6 cars total - the hotel public areas were clean but deserted. Don't stay here for any atmosphere - I stayed as the rate via a web booking site was tremendous value and I just needed a clean bed for the night.

Easy walk/ drive into town for a range of places to eat.

This place was awful, it looked nothing like the pictures on the internet. I can not even begin to say how much I disliked this place. The room smelt bad, furniture very very old and the room looked dirty. I was so discusted I couldn't even go back and ask for our money back we walked out and went and stayed somewhere else.

I am no princess and dont mind roughing it a bit but this pushed me over the edge.

I would recomend driving straight past this place and not looking back.

What a nasty place this is.The owners have just let it go to the dogs and should just give up running this place.Very outdated rooms, sliding doors that take almost 2 people to open it and wake up everyone within earshot, to a bathroom fan that takes 20 minutes to turn off at night.The tv gets one channel and there is no cutlery or anything.The alarm clock was straight from 1979 that didn't work.The biggest gripe was the fact that they didn't clean our room over 4 days, their idea of cleaning was just pulling up the sheets, no new sheets or anything.Dirty cups that we used the day before still sat with the left over coffee in them for days.Absolute lazy amatuers here in this dive.They didn't even clean or wipe the benches or toilet.Never have I stayed in such a hole as this.Even if this was the last motel lefted in town, I would rather stay in my car than stay here.This place needs a bulldozer

We stayed in a studio with a kitchen. The room was fine..had a very old look. The bathroom & toilet were very small. Overall, it looked a little outdated. But it was one of the cheaper ones we stayed during our trip. It is fine for an overnight halt. The receptionist answered our questions but did not come forward with helpful information. We enquired about the milford sound cruise and she gave the price & timings. But did not tell us that the last cruise doesn't give the option to do the underwater observatory. It was too late by the time we got there & we missed it. We personally felt it could have been better.
