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 room we had was number 8. The electric blanket did not work on the left hand side of the bed. We also noticed a advert on the telly that kept coming up on the top left corner of the screen, about the TV pack...we did several attempts to remove it, but it kept coming back. 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...

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment and were surprised upon arrival to be directed to a house down the street . The hotel is situated in an area close to the town . Lots of other hotels nearby. Very quiet the majority of the time except when there were big coaches picking up and dropping off guests. e.g: very early...

It was bitterly cold when we arrived in Te Anau, but our apartment was a welcome and warm spot. We had one of the spa suites, which is a spacious room with a stocked kitchenette and the best corner spa unit. The room had plenty of heating, even the bathroom floor I think, the tiles were never cold anyway. It...

We arrived on a cold early winter evening and were met with friendly advice and a toasty warm room. It feels like the owners went the extra mile. The little things like linen being fresh and clean, natural soaps, bathrobes to mention just a few things made us feel like we weren't just in any motel room. We felt cared...

Comfortable bed, full kitchenette, jet tubs in the bathroom, two heaters in the room! Could stay here for weeks as it has everything you need! Short walk/drive to the town center. Very quiet area!
