We were on the last leg of our 3 1/2 week tour of New Zealand staying in airbnb's and budget motels. We were very impressed with Parklands. Our room was spacious, a nice kitchen, common area with TV and separate bedroom. It was cleaned daily and fresh bedding which we did not expect. The kitchen was well equipped. Location is...

I first visited (and reviewed) Parklands in Nov 2011, saying that if I returned to Te Anau, I would stay at Parklands again. Well, I am back and once again chose Parklands. It has certainly changed significantly in the last 6 years - and all for the better. In 2011, Parklands hit the mark and was well worth staying at....

This is an excellent basic place to stay as part of a tour round New Zealand. Good location, handy for all activities; really helpful staff; comfortable quiet rooms; washing and kitchen facilities. Rooms were clean and spacious, although aircon was opening the many windows. Would recommend a stay for anyone touring looking for a good value motel

Had an upstairs room with balcony which faced the sun and the open park, so a lovely place to sit in the afternoons. Rooms were vey comfortable as was the bed. Bathroom and hob area a bit tired but everything worked ok. Great location - only 10 minutes walk across the park into the centre.

Despite the very laid back but at the same time rather stressed Basil Faulty character greeting us and generally dealing with guests we had a great stay. (My husband loved him - no niceties just straight to the point!). We were in room 4 which had mainly been newly redecorated and refurbished to a good standard. The kitchen was well...

We had a basic room at the very back with a mini-fridge and a kettle. The fully equipped kitchen was a communal one for these types of rooms and it was located a couple of doors down.. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was large but there wasn't a proper shower stall. Just a...

Parklands is an adequate if you need a place to stay, but it is quite basic. Reception consists of a grunt and a groan- another idiot customer interrupting their day. Rooms are clean and comfortable- adequate, but certainly wouldn't be my first choice.

My husband and I spent 3 nights here as we explored the Milford Sound area. The room was large, one double bed and one single with a couch and small table. The kitchen had all the things we needed to make our breakfast and take away lunch. Refrig, microwave, dishes, etc. The room was very clean and comfy and the...

Me and other three stayed at this motel it was good stay over all. Good size room and good facilities. Price was average. We did Spa and Sauna which was really good to have at this motel. Staff was good helpful but did not find any smile on their face. Free internet and near to main town centre.

Good location, spacious room, well-appointed kitchen, clean and tidy. The only small negative thing about our room was that two of the five beds were in the same area as the kitchen and the other three were only separated by a folding door, which did not properly close, so you could not keep the smell of cooking out. WiFi was...
