Te Anau Top 10 Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 30, 2014

This was the second of the two Top 10 sites we visited (the first was in Shotover near Queenstown). Basically it has the same format, offering various accommodations from tent sites to ensuite "motel" units. We had one of the latter for the 6 of us.

The unit had a similar layout with the one in Shotover (kitchen and king bed, a bedroom with double bed and two bunk beds, and a small bathroom/toilet), but it was even more compact, almost squishy. The walls to the neighbouring units were quite thin, and the back of the unit was directly bordering to the street, separated only by a low fence. So there was not much feel of privacy.

On the upside, the location was great, right next to the serene Te Anau lake where you can take a stroll. From the other exit at the back, it's only 5 minutes' walk to the town centre. Reception was also very friendly and able to recommend/book trips for you. People usually only stay in Te Anau for a night or two, on their way from Queenstown to Milford Sound, so comfort level is not the main consideration. On this ground, I could well recommend Top 10 as a place to stay.

Dear SpiceNSpruce,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on our Trip Advisor page.
I am pleased you enjoyed our location close to the town and Lake Te Anau. It is fantastic you found our great reception team friendly and utilised the free booking service we offer.
I agree that depending on the situation or make up of a group 6 people in a unit can feel a little tight. I hope you enjoyed the overall facilities of the unit and others offered within the park.

I wish you all the best for the rest of your travels and a safe journey home.
Warm Regards,
The Te Anau TOP 10 Team

Situated right on the lake, our room was clean and comfortable. Facilities on site were great, laundry, free milk. Good location, although Te Anau is very small so most things are on the lake. One hour free wifi ten you are charged.

Nice facility, the beach is across the street. They have outdoor BBQ's for you too use & free wi-fi . Rooms were clean and it was quiet at night. Not much to do in Te Anau beside the glow worm caves, which i recommend.

We stayed for a single night in a standard cabin before setting off to walk the Kepler track. The room was basic but certainly met all of our needs. The bathroom and kitchen facilities could not be faulted. Overall a comfortable and affordable stay.

We stayed over the Easter weekend and hit a few logistical issues in terms of picking up food and supplies for our hike prior to shops shutting for the long weekend (we had a late flight in from aus landing the evening before good Fri). Staff at the top 10 were helpful in giving us information and in storing a small gas burner we had delivered from a local camping store. We are VERY appreciative for this assistance.

Dear KatanTravel,

Thank you very much for posting such a great review on our Trip Advisor page.
I am glad you found our cabins met your needs for your stay before the Keplar Track- as you say we have fantastic facilities! I hope you enjoyed your walk- the Keplar Track certainly boasts some of the best views in the South Island!
It was our pleasure to help out with your supplies. Things can be tricky over public holidays! I am glad it all worked out for you in the end!

I hope you had a safe trip home and we hope to have you back again to walk another of our great walks!

Situated across the road from Lake Te Anau and walking distance to shops. We stayed in a motel style room which was large and well appointed. Although we didn't have a Top 10 card we were given a 10% discount for staying more than one night. This is an ideal stopping point to explore both Milford and Doubtful Sound, a lot closer than travelling from Queenstown for a day trip. Staff booked a Milford sound cruise for us and were very helpful and polite.

We stayed for two nights while on a 21day Motorhome tour of South and North islands. Excellent location close to lake. Very clean and well kept, with good facilities. Walking distance to Te Anau town centre with a good selection of shops and restaurants. Good location for trips to Milford Sound. Would imagine it gets very busy during peak season or holiday periods. Well worth a stop and would highly recommend.

Dear MalViDroitwichWorcs,

Thank you very much for posting your excellent review on Trip Advisor!
It is fantastic to hear you had such an enjoyable time whilst staying with us. As you say our park is in a fantastic location close to town and the Lake. Te Anau is a great little town and in definitely a lot quieter in the winter months compared to the summer. It is definitely worth booking in the busy season- A great tip you have given!

Once again thank you for taking the time to post a review and we hope to have you back to stay with us in the future!

We spent 2 nights in a motel style unit at the Top 10 Te Anau located right on the lake front. These units are fairly new. We found them very spacious clean and tidy. The facilities are excellent and the park has all the wanted amenities. Perhaps the only very minor criticism is that parking in front of the unit can be a little squeezy if there is larger vehicles around, but this a minor hassle. Overall, this is right up with the best Top 10 we have stayed at in NZ.

Room Tip: An ideal base for Milford adventures.
