We spent 2 nights in unit #1 as part of of our honeymoon. The owner was very friendly and helpful, the accommodation was fine - nothing fancy but it was clean and warm and the bathroom was good with underfloor heating, a decent shower and some rather nice toiletries! Location is great for Te Anau town centre and for visiting...

The website of this accommodation is not adequately informing that there is a clear difference in quality between rooms. The accommodation has a 4-star rating but our 'budget room' surely was no more than 2-star: a chair cover was completely ripped, some curtains should have been renewed many years ago, the toilet door didn't close properly and there was no...

Hi, Thanks for your feedback and I fee that some points need addressing as you mention. The room you booked is a budget one bedroom unit and is advertised online through the channel that you booked as a budget room and in the description"This 3-star apartment features full kitchenware and is fully self contained." It dose say that it is...

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. Our unit (#8), like others, has a large sliding glass door for its "front door." There was a door out the back side of the unit, to a cute little patio with a BBQ grill. (We didn't use it, as it was cold and rainy during our stay.) The bathroom had nice amenities...

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 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...
