A small motel complex just one street up from the lake. Very well run with the owners on site. I guess each room might be a little different, but mine came with a kitchenette, jacuzzi and both a front and rear door. When I arrived I was given the choice of either whole milk or low fat to use with my tea or coffee. The premises offer up a guest laundry, several gas barbecues, as well as a trampoline for those with overactive hormones. From my perspective, Te Anau is a far better location for exploring Milford and Doubtful Sounds and the myriad of mountain trails in the area than is Queenstown. This is a small village that shuts down fairly early but has a decent range of eateries and gear shops. Local outfitters can set you up with all you need to explore the region, including trailhead return transport. Intercity and Newman's stop in the village center and usually pick up and drop at the motel with advance notice. I suggest you cut some days out of Queenstown and apply them to Te Anau.

This motel is excellent - clean, well appointed and great value ($80/night). The kitchen is fully equipped, the suites are spacious and bathrooms modern and bright (suspect it has been renovated since the previous reviewer visited).
We stayed one night before heading off on a kayaking trip to Doubtful Sound (with Fiordland Sea Kayaks who are only a few doors away) and arranged to come back two days later - Nigel arranged for us to have the private bungalow complete with spa bath.
Put simply, its great value and convenient location make it an excellent base.

Stayed two nights. Booked a one bedroom unit with kitchen and they put us in the cottage they had attached to the motel. The motel looks old and a bit run down but it was quite clean. Good location for visiting Milford Sound. Can ask at the reception for cooking equipment eg fry pan, baking trays. If going for a few days I would rather stay at one of the newer motels in Te Anau though.

Motel has been extensively refurbished since then and all units in the motel complex are modern and comfortable.
