Friendly helpful staff , location
Room a bit tired
We arrived later than the office hours but there was a note left to say where the key was. Very helpful and friendly staff.
Nothing (apart from the weather!)
Our room was very nice and well equipped. Motel manager was very helpful and friendly. Parking was close and location very good
Wifi was weak, and the room had got very overheated during the day- lack of insulation or just too much solar gain?
Room is quite big,nice.
excellent location. spacious
bed too soft. could be noisy from other guests but not at night
Minutes to restaurants just walking over the park. Large bright room on first floor , spotless. Owner helpful organising tour to Milford
Very friendly & informative staff, gave map of town with places to go & must do's in Te Anau. Assisted with laundry & kept my pack safe when I went on another overnight adventure.
That I didn't book more nights to stay in this lovely accomodation!
No nets/blinds at the window, peeling wallpaper, grubby crockery, having to walk past the dustbins on the way to our room, fuzzy TV. Sounds from the other reviews that the ground floor accommodation is better. Obviously maintenance hasn't reached the top floor yet?! Easily the worst accommodation we stayed in during our holiday - all of a comparable price.
Quiet location, roomy accommodation, easy walking access to shops. Staff particularly helpful.
The units Outdoor table rather public for eating.
Great location enroute to Milford Sound. Excellent facilities with plenty of room for three adults. Great for larger families. Very close to cafes, restaurants and lake.
Disappointing attitude of owner, knocking on door just at check out time to hurry us up. Too many notices in apartment.
Comfort and locality
Location was very convenient for lakeside and town centre, peaceful, friendly and helpful staff.
Condensation (it was cold and wet when we stayed so our clothes caused this, but we couldn't get them to dry out either).
Beautiful scenery. Enjoyed visiting the Glow worm caves.Te Anau provides an ideal gateway to Milford Sound. Thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular waterfalls and the cruise in the Milford Sounds.
The one sandfly bite I received.
Friendly staff.very helpful.
Staff was nice and helpful, was a good location to sleep b4 and after Milford Sound, a few minute's walk to restaurants in Te Anau. Affordable.
Basic rooms, no screens on the windows so the bathroom filled with bugs with the lights on at night.
Barbecue facilities. Open grounds with sitting area. Short walk to town centre. Country feel Friendly staff. Very helpful
All was good. Only a bit old and tired but clean enough
Really enjoyed the space of the unit, the views and balcony to sit on. Everything was clean and fresh, comfortable beds, great bathroom and kitchen facilities..
Nothing at all. We couldn:t fault anything.
the town and proximity to Fiordland were the only plusses regarding this motel
Room was shabby, kitchen did not have a stove, bathroom was merely a semi-walled off portion of the room, bathroom had bare lightbulbs, missing fixtures. This was the only accomodation in our entire 2 week trip in New Zealand that was NOT excellent.
Great apartment with plenty of space
After spending 7 nights cramped in small 2 bedroom apartments, the apartment we were given was fantastic. Able to sleep 6+ people, we only needed it for 4. It enabled us to spread out and not be in each others pockets. We were disappointed that we had only booked 1 night. It is an older style accommodation but was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. The lady was most helpful with any questions and enquiries we had.
The Hotel is convenient to the main street and gave us some time to get ready for our trip.
We would have use the breakfast fascilities if they were available. Having to walk into town before your day could get started was a bit of an inconvenience.
Our unit was large and comfortable. This was part of a special celebration and we had booked 3 units, but the other 2 were smaller and less convenient. Kids loved the trampoline!
Surrounds e.g. paths, verandahs look to need a bit of maintenance. Lots of leaves and dirt around entries to units.
Large room. Nice patio and lawn area. Helpful staff.
Not on the lake, but really not an issue as it's only a couple of blocks away.
A lovely hotel with very spacious rooms and only a few minutes walk to town.
The staff were friendly and helpful. When I needed to replace a punctured tire on my car, they volunteered to help out. Thanks
