We stayed at this motel for two nights on our way from Franz Josef to Te Anau. It was fabulous. The property is right by the lakeside, just a road separates it from the lake. The views of the lake at night and the mountains in the background are very pretty. Make yourself comfortable in those chairs they placed outside, it is amazing. The hosts are very nice and took time to tell us what's available etc. The room is a tad small and a bit cramped at some places. Odd enough, the bathroom door opens outside, and not inside and opens right into the kitchen area. If someone standing there then be prepared to be knocked down! The house maintenance includes making the bed, but not the dishes, FYI. One can walk from the balcony door straight into the lake and everything is nearby - Four Square super market, 2 petrol pumps, 2 Indian restaurants, Subway, gifts shop....The other problem is parking. If you are coming in during a peak day, then be prepared to park far from the room. Overall, am quite positive about this place.
