Great room with two heaters, electric blankets and large bed. Room was very clean and kitchenette was handy to cook a late dinner as all restaurants are closed by the time you come back from the Te Anau glow worms tour at 930pm in winter (July).

Only downfall, rooms do not face the lake but rather the road. Room 1 faced the Distinction Hotel glass fish bowl function room.

Also free wifi was not consistent during our stay and the operator (ependium) did not pick up the phone to reboot the server so we could not use it.

Thank you for your review. We try to inform guests in all advertising that though we are lakefront our units are not directly lake facing. I do know how frustrating the lack of internet service can get. We are now confident that we have finally ironed out all problems with our ependium internet service. The Te Anau area itself can be a bit touchy where the internet is concerned. I do hope you enjoyed your vist to New Zealand especially wonderful fiordland.

We looked around town before settling on Lakefront Lodge, because the room was very spacious, comfortable, and spotless. Location is on a quiet side street. Owners/managers were quite helpful and friendly. Good value. We would stay here again!

We stayed here for two nights of our two-week trip. While it's not right on the lake, it's close enough to walk to the lake in about one minute. I thought it was a very comfortable room and suited our needs perfectly - we spend the entire stay in Te Anau outside! Very easy to walk into town from here. I'd stay here again.

This a very nice little motel and an easy walk to both the DOC visitor center and town. The owner is very nice and great about stowing your luggage during multi-day activities.

Days 18 & 19 of our 25 day tour of N.Z. and we arrived at this motel. We were not dissapointed as the motel is well situated for the lake & shops.We had a Deluxe Studio Unit and found it had ample room & facilities for the 2 of us. The only down side was that we were in unit 1 right next to the laundry room which could be a bit noisy at times.
