The very warm and personal welcome by the owner was a good sign, and we were never disappointed. We got a very big refurbished room, and after a cold first night, we were given an extra heater without delay.
At the time of our stay, the host was nursing a little lamb, and we were able to feed it.
We were also given many tips for eating out in town, and little cards that entitled us to free drinks with our meals, or a free coffee. Especially the Italian restaurant La Dolce Vita was really good.
After coming home after our trip to Milford, the host immediately came out of the office and asked us how our day was.
We can only recommend this Motel for anyone staying in Te Anau, we have nothing negative to say about both the motel itself and the lovely lady that runs it.
