Lovely little motel clean and tidy with everything you need Mary was very acommodating and helpful, below i rated fitness room and there isnt one but i couldnt remove it, although this motel isnt on the lake front it is not far to walk and i can recommend Sandfly cafe for a good breakfast and The Ranch for a great dinner?

Room Tip: Any room here is good

Stayed for 3 nights in January. Really pleased that we found this motel on the internet. Being able to park right outside the room was a big plus point. The main room is large with a small kitchen area, complete with microwave and all the utensils you would need for a short stay - they even supply washing up liquid! The bedroom was also large and had a very comfortable bed in it. The bathroom was huge and had a large shower cubicle (with a flexible hose, which pleased my wife!).

The motel is also very well positioned, being just off the main road through Te Anau, and within easy walking of both the town centre for shopping and a large selection of eateries, and of the lake which is only 200 metres or so away.

One major downside, which stopped me giving it an excellent rating, was the free wifi. Whilst it is, indeed, free it is not secure and also has an extremely annoying tendency to drop the connection whilst in use which caused all sorts of problems whilst trying to complete emails, accommodation bookings and TA reviews, as well as browse internet sites. This is something the owners are aware of and have promised to try to rectify the problems. It wouldn't stop me staying here again, though. Thoroughly recommended.

On arrival in Te Anau we had some difficulty finding two consecutive night's accommodation and after checking quite a few motels we were lucky enough to pull into Arran Motel and found they had accommodation available.

Room was good, had a queen bed and a single bed, kitchen facilities, free wi fi, spacious bathroom and a nice little outdoor area to sit and enjoy a relaxing drink. We were also given a discount on rates for a 2-night stay. It was a short walk to the main street for meals and the lake. Reception were very helpful and organised our Milford Sound tour with pick up/drop off right at the front door.

It is an older motel and not as plush as some of the newer, more expensive abodes but it is very comfortable and very quiet and peaceful.

This motel is located in a quiet street and takes approx 5 minutes to stroll into the town centre. Cars can park directly out the front of the motel rooms. Our motel room was clean and comfortable. The shower was awesome. Sitting out the front of the motel room enjoying a drink and some peace and quiet was very relaxing. Offering free milk and wifi is an added bonus. The motel has a guest laundry and for $6 you can wash and dry a load of washing. We would definitely stay here again.
