We are on our fifth hotel in the South Island of New Zealand in the last 10 days, and this was the worst value for money that we we have encountered. Perhaps all hotels in Te Anau are expensive because of their proximity to the Sounds - I am not sure. The staff were friendly and helpful, and this hotel is well located. For a family of four, it was a bit small- basically, we could not all open our bags at once and have any room to move around - and the kids had to sleep in the living room. The rooms had been recently upgraded and superficially were very clean and quite well equipped. Three of us suffer from dust allergies and found the room unbearably dusty due to the presence of an ancient sofa containing a pull out bed which had obviously not been thoroughly cleaned for years. Also, the living room window fronts on to a street so unless all the blinds are closed the family is on show at all times. To be fair, one advantage of the window was that the room was wonderfully warm on returning from the cold windy afternoons. The room was not well insulated so the cold drafts kept me awake at night. I am being fussy i know but staying here was not relaxing and we basically tried to stay out of the room as much as possible as it was not comfortable to hang out in - more a place to sleep only. Definately not as fresh and clean and spacious for the money as other hotels we have stayed at in other cities on the South Island.
