Fiordland Hotel/Motel
Ranked #23 of 23 Hotels in Te Anau
Reviewed 30 April 2016 via mobile

Older citizens of former communist states and visitors from North Korea will feel right at home here. Ostalgia city. The communal kitchen smells of decades of rancid burnt oil. There is an industrial chimney in the middle of the hotel. The swimming pool has no water in it.

I think Dostoyevsky stayed here when he wrote his most dismal novels.

Room was tiny ! Understood it to be a compact room....but.... could not shut the bathroom door once on the toilet, could not get legs into space by bed to get out and could not fit chair on the balcony. The room was in a complex that resembled a student block complete with pool table and table tennis, the corridors were old and tired and the carpets on the stairs literally threadbare. Too far to walk into town. Conclusion.... there are better places to stay in this area for same money.

We recently stayed for an over night visit. From the outside it looks very tired and run down, but surprising the rooms were refurbished, although the water pressure in the rooms is terrible and the showers offer nothing more than a dribble which you need to run around under to get wet!! The central heating is only just adequate too.

All in all for a budget motel it ok, clean and only a 5 minute walk to the Main Street.

Stayed in a motel room on two separate nights either side of walking the Milford Track. Rooms were small but ok with recently renovated bathrooms. We were able to get a 11am checkout on the return trip. Doors seem to band noisily from early in the morning,
Value is good but overall the place looks pretty tired. Some rooms have a good view. There is a pool but it didn't look too inviting. There was also a big 1970s looking restaurant but didn't look like it was used. On the edge of town so a bit far to walk to town. Tea/coffee plus free wifi.

We spent two nights at the Fiordland Hotel and it fitted our needs perfectly. As others have stated, some of the areas are in need of updating and there is a general feel of tiredness about the place. But for the price it really is a bargain if all you want is a clean bed and room for a night or two.

Staff are all very helpful with any queries we had.
