This is a very nice property in a really pretty little town. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Te Anau, the little town, is the gateway to Milford Sound and this hotel would be an excellent place to stay with the only problem being that the front desk staff is condescending and rude. In dealing with a problem I...

We stayed here two nights in order to do a Milford Sound Cruise. There were two queen size beds in the room as well as a sitting area. The bathroom was nicely appointed and the toiletries provided were very good! Internet, well, I think New Zealand has some sort of Internet problem, as it was the usual voucher, used with...

We spent 1 night on our way to Milford Sound & were very impressed with the size of the room (2 king size beds), exceptionally clean and a great view of snow capped mountains from our window. A 2 minute walk to the lake & shopping street. The restaurant food was very good. Would definitely recommend this little gem.

What a nice place to stay, close to the water and shops. The rooms were large with two king size beds. Décor is slightly dated however the quality of the room and bathroom made up for it. The windows open, parking is free and we had a great dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. The only staff we saw was...

Spent one night and felt it was amazing.the rooms were very spacious and clean. Wish I could have stayed longer. Woke up in the morning to find it snowing which I have never seen falling. If you are ever down that way, got to give this hotel a go.😀

We stayed in this hotel overnight on a trip to Milford Sound. The hotel was very clean and the room was extremely spacious. Great value for money too given that it's a tourist hot spot! I would recommend this hotel to anyone passing through Te Anau or looking to stay for a couple of days in this great little town.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here. Both Paul and Britanny at the front desk did an exceptional job in helping us to arrange a trip to Milford Sound.

Only had one night here but I was pleasantly surprised, it was quite a nice hotel. Room was more than big enough, clean, good beds, nice bathroom, quiet, didn't have any meals there so can't comment on that, it's centrally located in the middle of town, good position.

Our Deluxe room was spacious with very comfortable beds. The double glazing meant we could ignore buses starting up outside. We could also control room temperature by opening windows for cooling or setting our own comfort level by controlling a wall heater. The facilities were very clean. A minor niggle was the wet flapping shower curtain over the bath. We...
