Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2013

We stayed in a lot of motels during our five weeks in New Zealand and this was most definately one of our favourites. Great location for walking around the lake or visiting the town centre. Lovely, helpful owners and friendly cat! Very clean,comfortable and quiet.

This was our third motel stay in NZ and we figured they all have the same format. Nice big rooms with a ensuite kitchenette but laundry facilities being in an outside common area. The laundry is coin operated (NZ 2 per cycle) so make sure you have adequate change if you are using the facility late night since the reception hours are until 8pm if i rememebr right. Wi-if is free only for two hours per night of stay and you are given a token. Multiple devices cannot be logged in using one token. We found the place to be clean with daily basic housekeeping. Only grouse being that there was no mixer in the bathroom sink, with hot and cold water taps being separate. The location is away from the main high street of te anau and is a long walk (may be 15-20mins) to the visitor centre and especially to the nice restaurants and cafeteria that are located further down the street. We had a car so this was really not an issue.

We got the family house and it was great. The only negative thing was the beds were a bit soft. Very clean and able to walk everywhere. The three bedrooms were great as there was two couples and wee took 2 teenage boys

This motel is in a great location - although there is no lake view it is an easy walk into town. The room was very comfortable with the largest TV I've ever seen in a hotel room. The kitchen facilities are good, but with the many restaurants you probably won't need them. Free Wi-Fi is also great, something I wish hotels in Australia would offer. Jill provided info about the walks in the area which we found very useful and restaurant recommendations could not be faulted. I know where we'll stay if we ever return to Te Anau.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room in this motel.

We stayed here just before Christmas, 2012 and could not have been more delighted. Jill & Craig own the property and they made us feel like members of the family from the minute we walked into reception. Our room was very spacious and immaculate throughout. It had a huge HD TV and a kitchenette outfitted with all the equipment and dishes needed to make meals in the room. They were just starting to upgrade the bedding in all the rooms and offered to upgrade ours while we were sightseeing. We came back to a luxurious king bed with all new linens. We were so impressed with Te Anau - and so happy with Jill, Craig & the motel, that we changed our plans on the fly and stayed an extra night. This was one of THE highlights in a trip filled with highlights.

Room Tip: We had a standard room and it was huge. The also offered larger rooms for families and a full house...

Spotlessly clean motel with very spacious rooms and everything provided to be reasonably self sufficient. Very helpful owners with nothing being too much trouble. Really great beds ensured a good nights sleep. Good internet and rooms have been fully refurbished. Rooms have very large TV's with good reception. Walking distance to eateries with many to choose from.

We stayed here for 5 nights in a 2 bedroom motel. Were impressed by the cleanliness of the unit and the friendliness of the owners. Not a lake side view, but only a 2 minute walk down to lake, so this was not a problem at all. Would not hesitate to recommend this motel to anyone.
