“Allright but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013

Ok value stay with just few minutes walk from city. Stayed just one night and because of just a big amount of users in block we lost power during evening. Friendly and helpful staff. The pool area and one spa was under construction. Took a trip to glow worm caves and visited milford sound while staying in te anau. Would explore other hotels when coming back.

A large functional complex of hotel and motel units on the outskirts of town off the main road with plenty of space and parking. We stayed in the motel units which were clean and functional, with a nice grassy area outside for drinks in the sun! Staff were very friendly and minded our bags for us while we did the Kepler, and even dropping us to the track start and into town for dinner!

Very friendly staff, decent size rooms and great parking. There are laundry facilities, a bar, pool table etc. it is only a 10 minute walk from the town centre and a 2 minute drive to nearest petrol station.

You can hear doors being slammed at night and patio doors being shut which can be quite irritating if you are trying to get sleep.

All in all though a decent motel for the price.

Initially I was a bit disappointed as I thought the place looked amazing and quite luxurious on the website and thought I'd got myself a real bargain. When I compared my photos to the website just now, it actually looks pretty much the same, but I guess it just doesn't feel so flash when you're there in person. Saying that though, it's still nice and comfortable and clean, and the rooms have been completely renovated. We were in a standard room, which isn't particularly spacious and doesn't have any cooking facilities, but the bed was comfy and the shower was nice. I had been looking forward to using the pool, but when I saw it, it was pretty small and not very inviting so I gave it a miss. The location is a bit out of the way, but it's only a few minutes in the car into the town centre. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and overall it was very reasonably priced and a good base for the fiords.

I loved where we stayed as it was not too close to the main shopping area but close enough to walk. The staff were lovely and we enjoyed ourselves very much, thankyou!

We chose Fiordland because of promotional fare. Hotel was very quiet, staff perfectly attentive and there wasn't many guests. Interiors were a little bit old fashioned, but room was modern, clean and comfortable (cool bathroom with tub). Unfortunately, the hotel is outskirts of the city (making it easier to find), but the walk to the downtown is about 20 minutes, so it's not a problem. Small swimming pool is in a separate building.

I spent very nice time in this hotel - my room was very comfortable, hotel was quiet and the staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel is placed in very peaceful area, you can make a walk to the center of Te Anau. It is great base for a one-day trip to Milford Sound.
