Great little motel, close to the lake, and close to the central part of Te Anau. There's a little path across the street that leads directly to the lake and connects to some nice walks. Recommendations for dinner locations were spot on, thanks!

A pleasant well positioned motel. Close to facilities, full kitchen, opposite lake. Served our purpose. Would have allowed us to book out later had we asked. Not far from shopping centre. Parking a little cramped.

We were pleased to stay at this Motel. Even on a very wet day in September the motel had a high occupancy. The manager was very professional but also friendly. We stayed for 2 nights and the accommodation was very spacious for three people, with a separate bedroom. It was a pleasure to finally have a good bathroom. We were...

Enjoyed a stay here in Te Anau. The room was comfortable and clean. The location central to the township and a block back from the lake. Hired two of their bikes and rode out around the lake which was fun.

The heatpump was also...

Overall, a great place to stay half way between Queenstown & Milford Sound. The hotel is within walking distance of everything in town, even in the middle of winter. The owners were friendly and helpful. The room was reasonably priced, a good size, clean and comfortable. It was relatively quiet except for the few times during the night when other...

Stayed in the 3 bedroom house which was 2 houses away on the same street. The service from staff was perfect. Staff spent time explaining what to do in Te Anau as well as changed our Milford Sound booking to a better time for us. The complimentary coffee and hot chocolate delivered to our room on arrival was a lovely...

smalltownlad, General Manager at Anchorage Motel Apartments, responded to this review

Hi Layjai - Your comments are fair enough about no hot water as a guest had left a hot water tap on and drained all the hot water - there is over 500 gallons supplying only 5 units of which only three were occupied and as I explained to you after finding out what was the problem, there was nothing...
