Lakeside Motel & Apartments
Ranked #10 of 22 Hotels in Te Anau
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 July 2017

We ended our 12 day trip through NZ at Lakeside Motel and we were very happy with this choice. We had an updated unit so everything felt new and the unit was spotless when we walked in. The unit was kept toasty warm with the underfloor heating which was great. We loved the view from the slider doors out to the lake. And with a family of 6, we really appreciated having a toilet in a separate area from the sink and shower! Most of the motels are close together so the location is pretty much the same as far as being close to things, but having a room with a view of the lake was the added bonus. I would have no problem staying here again.

We chose this place as our launching point for our drive to Milford sound the next day and for the night after that. It served that purpose very well. The rooms were quite old fashioned but had all the essentials necessary. The motel is located a reasonable walk from the centre of Te Anau which helps to reduce noise etc. but does mean a bit further to get food etc. This definitely isn't a destination hotel but it is clean and comfortable which for our purposes was exactly what we needed.

We stayed here for two nights in January. It had one of those views that you could just sit and look at all day. We had two rooms and and adequate kitchen area in the sitting room. It was all comfortable except the bed which had a dipped mattress.
The staff were friendly and helpful. They were accommodating to agree to accept a package which I arranged to be delivered there.
It is an ideal location for a trip to Doubtful Sound which was one of the highlights of our trip. We had booked the trip in advance and were collected from the appartments.
It is also a great location for Milford Sound.
Our privacy was just slightly invaded by the balcony walkways that go both sides of the appartment.

Room Tip: Definitely one with a view of the lake.

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of April when it was just getting chilly but the unit was very warm (loved the underfloor heating), extremely clean, and the view across Lake Te Anau was magical.
The staff were friendly, the booking easy to make and it was just a short walk into town.
We highly recommend Lakeside Motel.

Room Tip: Ask for a front unit upstairs if you want the very best of views

Stayed here for 2 nights in a large 1 bedroom apartment with garden view. The property had 1 double bed and a double couch/bed in the living room. Good value for money. Slightly dated decor but fine for all the time that you spend in doors. Good base and just a short walk into town. There is also a bird park worth visiting within walking distance too.
