We were very disappointed, very expensive for the basic motel facilities. No view. No restaurant, no facilities.The room still had garbage from the previous tenants. Absolutely no privacy, had to keep the heavy curtains closed all day as well, everyone could look straight in to all rooms.no blinds or net curtains to help. Didn't help the cleaner opening them whilst...

Myself, husband and parents stayed at this motel for 1 night. Could not fault this accommodation. The female owner was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and had great facilities with kitchen and bathroom. The shower was lovely. It was a very peaceful location. Could have stayed another night

My husband and I were bracing ourselves for a Motel 6 type of experience for our hotel stay in Te Anau since there were no great in-between options (super expensive or super cheap). We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel. It was clean, had free WiFi and a kitchenette area. It was no-frills but a good option for passing through...

We stayed there for 2 nights and every thing worked perfectly. Very clean, good bed and confortable room. It is a little far from the city center ( 1 km ) but it is not really a problem. You may walk ( 15 minutes ) or drive there ( there is plenty of parking in the city center).

A very well equipped and recently rennovated unit near to the lake and the village centre. Outside looks like standard older kiwi motel but unit was very modern and had everything we needed for our visit. Would definitely stay again when we next visit the amazing fiordland region.

We spent two nights at this motel, our room was well furnished, really comfortable bed, TWO luggage racks PLUS a wardrobe (why do so many motels/hotels only allow for one suitcase?), well stocked kitchen, heated bathroom floor and towel rails, lovely bathroom products and all in all just a really cosy place to stay. Two minute walk to the lake...

This would have to be one of the best places we have stayed on our trip through the South Island. Not too expensive, it had everything we needed and indeed wanted. Along with a comfortable bed, good hot shower, fluffy towels and spacious room(we had been upgraded to a two bedroom unit), it also had underfloor heating in the bathroom...
