The hotel was layed back and fine... good facility, location, and beautiful area of NZ. The staff was a bit grumpy, but maybe a long working day?... enjoyed stay but probably won't do extended trip in the area.

Normal Motel, normal setup, normal service, normal situation, but unfortunatelly unjustified high price. We could not find anything special about this place. Nothing was bad but the price was just too much for what you get.

We recently enjoyed 10 days holiday in Te Anau at the very comfortable Arran Motel. The one bed apartments are large and well cared for. The owners were friendly and very helpful. This is a well maintained motel and I have no problem recommending the Arran to my friends and family.

A very clean and tidy motel in a great position. Close to town with great views of mountains and lakes. Decor is a little dated, especially the furniture and bedspreads. Lounge was very uncomfortable and didn't really accommodate 4 people. Big bathroom with great shower but a bit squishy when using the toilet. Very friendly and welcoming staff who made...

The owners were very helpful and friendly. They advised on several places to eat and also on other places to visit on the rest of our tour. The units were very clean. Very good value for money. Would be happy to stay again and recommend.

I spent two nights at this motel and had a mainly positive experience. Check in was swift and the spot for the car (numbered) was right in front of the room. The room was quite big and bright (there is glass on the whole entrance’s side with a big sliding door) and the furniture, a table with wicker comfy chairs,...

Didn't enjoy my stay here to be honest, we needed a stop over night or 2 for driving to Milford Sound, being the middle of summer (25c temps) the rooms were unbearably hot and didn't cool down to at least 1am, so wasn't nice at all. No air-con by the way. Not stayed in a Motel before to be honest...

Lovely huge clean rooms! Very friendly staff. Very close to town and the lake. Near to the lakeside walk that joins with a bird sanctuary and the Kepler trail. Would recommend to all. Loved their flag selection, is our choice too! One of the best showers I've had in a motel full stop!

Excellent place to stay. The one bedroom unit was extremely spacious, including the extra large bathroom. Everything was very clean and tidy, sofa bed very comfy and the shower amazing! Location was excellent being only a few minutes walk to the lake or restaurants. It was away from traffic noise which was great also.Would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful place of stay. Very warm hospitality given at time of arrival and helpful throughout the stay-replaced a light bulb that blew during the night straightway . Ample space, clean amenities-big shower place with good water pressure. Would highly recommend this place! Easy access to the town and lake.
