The hotel is huge however was quiet and basic. We got a room facing the lake. Had lovely views. However, nothing to rave about the hotel, or service. Location is central. Charge is above average for one night.

Dear Avi Thanks for your review and I am happy to hear you enjoyed the views but disappointed to hear you found it basic. I sincerely hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Fiordland and had a safe trip home. Regards Brent Stander

Was a very comfortable stay, close to the centre of Te Anau with the restaurant and the lake. With 2 teenagers a bit room would have been nice. But really it was lovely, especially the roses and garden.More

Staff welcoming on arrival but rooms could do with some revival. Unfortunately it caters for big tour groups who are not always respectful of other guests in the hotel. Food in the restaurant was nice but the service very patchy
