Renovated clean nice room
Electric stove pan etc should've brought from public kitchen. Should be in the room. Maid services inconsistent - one day on one day off and third day partial
Made to feel extremely welcome on arrival, owner very helpful with suggestions of things to do etc. Within easy walking distance to the town.
So spacious and good lighting
There is no view to the lake, only to your neighbors
outside the room. But the bad attitude made us feel very bad.
This motel won the award of 'worst service' in my 20 days trip in NZ. In fact, the staff's attitude is the worst in all the accommodations I have ever seen. Never come here unless you want to be an explorer to explore what does 'bad attitude' mean. Probably this is the name for. It is the only motel which cares minutes delay. I checked out at 10am and returned to the room to pack stuffs and clean the room. At 10:07am the staff knocks the door rudely, saw us still packing then threatened us that she will charge us late leave expense if we could not finish in 10 min. Later when I explained that I was cleaning the kitchen she rushed to the room to check the kitchen, rudely of course. In addition, after she saw the clean kitchen, she threatened that she would charge us extra expense if we did not clean the kitchen. Is this endorsed by NZ law? I have to admit that it is our fault that we did not pack earlier and caused the delay. But a staff should know how to talk to guests in a polite way. All other motel I stayed (and many of my friends stayed) are happy to give some grace period to the guests. In terms of facilities, it is barely OK: kitchen facilities are merely acceptable, no ventilation, no bath, no physical separation between the shower "room" and the toilet. 此次20天新西兰途中服务态度最差的motel。工作人员的态度是我目前为止碰到的最差的。如果你想体会什- 么叫做“恶劣的态度”，请到这里来探索一下。也许这就是它为什么叫做“探索者”的原因。 这也是此次行程中唯一的对几分钟的延迟非常敏感的motel。我在10点钟交了钥匙并付了款，然后回到房间- 中收拾东西同事把厨房清扫一下。10点07分的时候，前台那个工作人员粗鲁地敲门，发现我们在收拾东西时，- 威胁说要收取额外的费用，我说还需要大约10分钟才能完全收拾好，她说如果10分钟内收拾不好，那么会来收- 费。之后我到前台解释说推迟的部分原因是在收拾厨房，结果她就非常粗鲁地冲到厨房去检查。看到厨房的东西都- 收拾干净了，说威胁如果我们没有把厨房收拾干净的话，会收取额外的费用。这是新西兰法律所允许的吗？ 我也承认我们没有提早收拾东西导致了一些延迟。但是工作人员应该知道如何和客人客气地说话。此外，我以及我- 的许多朋友住过的motel都会很友善地给住客一些时间收拾。 房间设施方面，马马虎虎：厨房设施凑合，但没有排气装置，卫生间没有浴缸，而洗澡的地方（淋浴“房”）和卫- 生间的其他设置之间仅仅是通过淋浴帘隔开。
Close location to water and a short walk to shops. lovely staff who were happy to assist with any enquiries, and chatty.
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.
