“Good hotel”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

This is a well located hotel with views across the road to the lake. The rooms are adequate with views of the lake and mountains, no safe and 20 mins free wifi per day in the hotel lobby. There is a pleasant bar and restaurant with good value meals and wines. There is a guest laundry costing 3 dollars for washing and the same for drying.

Very good value, great room, great breakfast. A $99 bed and breakfast package set us up for the 125th Anniversary Heritage Milford Track walk. Happy to recommend and or stay there again. Handy to everything in Te Anau.

Kingsgate, you did it, you won the prize of our best deal for our buys for the week. We shopped on Grabone and Bookings.Com and this was a deal of $119 for 2 for the night Double room, breakfast and DINNER included, and You sure looked after us. The food was superb, and the accomodation was great. Thankyou so much.. If ever we are in Te Anau again...we will return, but we will definitely recommend others to come in your direction!!

Booked a $99 bed and breakfast package and thought it would be pretty basic, but we were wrong! Room was big, very clean with a lovely bathroom and very quiet. Staff were polite and helpful - made it really easy to do a boat trip in the Milford Sound, arriving in plenty of time - the whole place was welcoming. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Hotel is handily situated with beautiful views. Next time we are down that way, know where we will be staying!

Having booked a $99 bed and breakfast package we didn't expect much. I'm happy to say we were extremely pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Our room was huge and had a lovely big sofa/sitting area to relax in. It was lovely and sunny with a nice aspect over the garden. The bathroom is up to the standard of much more expensive 4 star hotels and everything was exceptionally clean and tidy. Yes, the decor is slightly dated, but you would have to be a particularly fussy traveller to find anything to complain about here, particularly when comparing nearby hotels which are of similar standard but charging much more. The breakfasts were great and our evening meal in the restaurant was thoroughly enjoyable. If you're looking for somewhere to rest your head, clean and value for money then you could do no better in Te Anau.

Room Tip: At first we were disappointed to not be Lakeside, but after comparing our room to our friends we wer...

This hotel by the lake front had a handy location.The cleanliness was good and the hotel staff were helpful. The room had a dated feel, no coffee plunger, old tv with no sky, there was view of the lake but was a bit obstructed by the restaurant's roof.We were on the second floor of a two floor hotel mind you.There was free wifi for 20mins per day from the lobby , it was about 70cents per minute from the room.We had dinner at the hotel restaurant due to bad weather and we enjoyed it.I had steak and its was delicious but was medium when asked for medium rare but it was still good.The deserts, blubery cheese cake with poached pear and plum parfait were delicious as well.
