We stayed two nights in Te Anau. The Lakeside Motel was conveniently placed on the Lakeside Drive, just a few minutes from the centre of the small town of Te Anau. The apartment was comfortable and clean and well equipped. There is no doubt that on our tour of New Zealand the view from the apartment was the best we came across. Our hosts were helpful and listed their choice of restaurants in Te Anau. Should we ever visit again we would certainly consider a further stay at the Lakeside Motel.
Should you be motoring to Te Anau do take care on the Route 94 the Castlerock to Mossburn road, for there be Senior Constable David Cherry who lies in wait for you with his radar gun. He greeted me with a gruff "get this car off the road". His target is tourists to New Zealand who exceed the speed limit and drive on the wrong side of the road. I was deemed to be exceeding the limit and fined NZ$120.00 for my sin. The road is flat and straight and it easy to exceed the 100 kph in a car without cruise control. Do bear this in mind otherwise you may be stopped by one of New Zealand's finest in the rather portly shape of Dave. In fact you may make Dave's day! Please be warned.
