“Clean motel, great for steeping stone to Milford sound”
Reviewed March 17, 2011

We stayed here over night from queenstown to Milford sound as didn't want to drag out trip with 9 month old baby. Pleasant motel with nice gardens. Walk to restaurants and town centre. Perfect overnighter.

We stayed for four days in one of the upstairs units (make sure to ask for one for the view!). It was large, comfortable and a 5 minute walk to the town center. Go eat at the redcliff restaurant! .

Can't ask for more when a lot of hotels and motels had no vacancy. Rented the apartment with three rooms facing the lake that can fit 6, full kitchen and a living room that can fit a snooker table between couches and TV. The only down side is toilet and shower rooms are separated too far off and there is only one toilet. The facilities are well maintained though a little old.

Upon check in, the kid at the reception was really helpful assisting many of our requests, booked a restaurant for us that we enjoyed very much and showed us where to go and how to use some amenities.

Good comfortable rooms, value for money place. Service was ordinary - we had two young children and the lady who looked extremely busy (could not see any other staff around) sounded difficult when we asked for an hour's delay in checkout.. we ended up dumping everything in the car.

The shower didn't work very well either.

We stayed for 3 nights in a lake facing unit with an amazing view at a great price, the rooms a fully equipped with everything you need full kitchen, bathroom with seperate toilet the units are quite large, the furnishing is quite old and so is the unit bit out dated but i couldnt ask for anything more it was comfortable, quite and a view to take your breathe away great place to stay if you want to explore what the surrounding area has to offer and it has plenty.

We stayed in a Non-Lakefacing Unit for 1 night in late November 2010, we actually ended up having a view of the lake which was nice. The room was really quite spacious with a separate lounge/dining area to the bedroom and bathroom area. The reception staff were pleasant upon check in and check out. I was really happy with the room and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if i was in the area. I must say that the bathroom towels were extremely soft! We had a good nights sleep especially after a long day driving from Queenstown - Milford Sound then back to Te Anau. If you have time I would recommend doing the Glow Worms tour with Real Journeys.
