I stayed 3 nights at the Alpenhorn with 2 teenage sons after the Milford track was closed due to very heavy rain and our planned 3 day walk was cancelled. We were at a loose end for 3 days, having arrived in Te Anau with no vehicle and only our hiking gear. Tony who runs the motel was wonderful, the most helpful host I have ever come across; he had lots of advice for alternative walking, tried to find alternative hut accommodation for us; and when we could not book in to any of the track accommodation, drove us to the start of the Kepler track in his own car and picked us up at the end of the day. He salvaged our holiday for us and gave us a very positive experience of Te Anau.
The motel unit itself was good value, conveniently located, and while not large has everything you need including very comfortable beds. Plus spotlessly clean. When we return to Te Anau I will be staying here again.

We had a great time staying at the alpenhorn. The host was such a delight and very helpful. The room was clean and was self contained with a kitchenette. If you want to save some money by not staying in absolute lake-front accommodation, then this is the place for you. It represents excellent value. We will definitely stay again when we next visit Fiordland!

I stayed here for 2 nigths and one thing I like about this motel is the staff/owner. He is very helpful in all matter and very knowledgeable about Milford Sound. I'm sure that everyone that is looking to stay in Te Anau are looking forward to go to Milford Sound. Well, this guy will tell you where is the best place to stop along the way and even suggest to you which cruise to take.
About the room, the settings and arrangments are very nice. And very clean too. Very comfortable stay I would say.

I stayed one night there before heading for Milford Track. The room was clean with a lovely garden view. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen had all you need for cooking. The shower was steamy hot. The location is perfect, several blocks away from the Fiordland National Park visitor center. The owner Tony was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend it to all my friends who will visit Te Anau.

We were greated very warmly by the owner, and we received so much advise that we could not do it all in the short time;-) The facilities and furnishing are a little bit old-fashioned but completely sufficient for a short stay. We felt very comfortable. The owners could offer good contact to most of the tour operators at Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound. Thanks a lot and all the best from Germany!
