Simple, basic, clean rooms, as a hotel would be rated between one and two stars (it needs renovation from the buildings all the way to the cutlery in the kitchens). Staff is friendly and nice....when available. Every time (check in, questions, etc.) there was nobody at the reception and had to ring/page/wait relatively long for somebody to come (but than they were friendly). Internet/WiFi completely useless. Spend half an hour per time and have to be lucky to be able to connect, and when get through, as slow as analog modem of the early 90's. If need VPN even worse (so slow that you get "timeout" responses. This despite giving only the first hour per stay free, all other charged. "Official explanation" is that the place is "remote". Wonder how the cafés in the main street (300m away) can make it fast and for free. Wasted so much time....
Ok, the whole area is to relax and casual, but if ask "city" prices for rooms, services, connections, etc. then should also offer corresponding service. Being ranked #20 of 24 in Te Anau at the time confirms this house is below average.
