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.
