We had trouble finding accommodation in Te Anau but eventually discovered this Hotel. Nothing special but good ,friendly service, reasonable rooms and restaurants. Comfortable but TV and WiFi poor reception.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better

First impressions were good,the facade & the reception area were really nice and stylish, the staff were lovely and helpful, the hotel is large and spacious, parking is good and it is located right in the center of town.
The room (ground floor) was huge, had all the things you would want plus more - a sitting area, desk, large cupboard. However is was so dated, this hotel desperately needs an upgrade to make it more modern, and it needs exhaust fans in the bathrooms please !!!
The beds were a bit old and saggy in the middle.

Rather large family room but really looks like eighties, not that well maintained. Also totally unsuitable for business usage, no table/desk at working heigth whilst there would be plenty of space. No WiFi in rooms and very limited WiFi (only for smartphones, 100 M package for 2 hours) in restaurant and lobby.
Friendly staff, good dinner in cafe downstairs, quite limited buffet B'fast upstairs: e.g. no fresh fruits at all, only breads are pre-toasted and hence cold slices of bread. B'fast would even be more 2 star than the promised 4 stars. Location excellent, so if one can get at a 2-3 star price why not...

Got a really good deal for 3 nights over labour weekend. This hotel is right in the town centre and as it was a wet weekend, easy to go back and forth.
Very clean. The room we were in was a bit dated and toilet light took 5 seconds to come on (not that it's a big deal)but if you were desparate...
Very nice restaurant attached called the Baillaze ( I think) with friendly staff.

Just stayed one night and was imoressed by reception. Stayed in lower floor room, appears to have been built in the 80s and not much has changed since. As long as you dont expect much, this is an okay place to stay.

Have stayed here twice now with tour groups, the manager, Paul, and his staff has made everyone feel welcome. Nice big rooms excellent food from either the buffet or from the bar/restaurant. The awesome location is right in the heart of town and a very short walk to the Lake
