“Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

This modern and comfortable self-catering motel is great! The exterior look of the motel maybe less impressive but the interior is contemporary and welcoming.

We had a two bedroom unit, perfect for 5 of us. Rooms are in good size, beds are comfortable. Bathroom is very clean. We've got everything we need in the kitchen, very well equipped. Everything of this motel is just so good and clean. Free wifi for one device at a time.

Te Anau is beautiful and a good base to visit Milford Sound. Didn't make it to Milford Sound due to bad weather and falling rocks, which is a shame! We will return and would definitely stay in Anchorage Motel again.

We stayed in one of the houses and it was very spacious and clean but dated. Reviews of the motel say the rooms are modern, so I can only surmise that the house are yet to be refurbished. we were in off season, so the place was quiet, Te Anau is beautiful and a great spot for touring from. The owner was friendly and very helpful

Room Tip: If possible get a room in the main motel

There were 6 of us so we stayed in the 3 bedroom house which was just perfect for us. It had a nice lounge/dining room, washer and dryer and well equipped kitchen. This was the best accommodation we had during our recent tour of New Zealand and wished we had been able to stay there a little longer. The rates are reasonable and it is an easy walk into town or down to the lake. Definitely a place to come back to.

My husband and I and 3 friends stayed at the Anchorage Motel for 2 nights from the 31 Jul – 2 Aug 2013.

I highly recommend that if you are self-driving and you are wanting to include Milford Sound into your holiday, stay at Anchorage Motel. The accommodation was very comfortable and warm. Fiona looked after us during our stay and she was very professional, friendly and helpful.

My husband and I will be back to visit as we missed the glow worms.

We've been traveling all over New Zealand for almost 3 weeks. This is the first place we are having difficulty leaving. The owners are friendly and accommodating, provide free DVD's and wifi, and the rooms are the best. High quality crisp white linens, free soaps and shampoos, hair dryers, etc. We have had the best night's sleep here and would highly recommend it.

At this stage on our holiday, we had been on the go for a bit, and needed some relaxation time. This motel certainly provided that as we had booked the King Spa studio.

Initially I had thought that it was the bed which was a King Size Bed, and the spa would just be a bath with jets.

Well, it was a bath with jets, but it was one of those huge corner baths. Truly was a blessing for sore muscles.

The motel was located slightly away from the centre of the town, on the edge of the lake. There was a walking track from opposite the motel, down to the lake, but unfortunately we never got around to walking it.

The managers onsite were very friendly, and assisted us with our plans for driving the Milford Road, explaining where the best places were to stop. There was also an onsite laundry for fairly cheap which was nice since we didn’t have to then travel to the Laundromat.

The room was quite large, with a sizable kitchen, television and closet. The bed was slightly harder than I would have liked, but that may have had to something to do with the fact that I was quite sore already from all the hiking I’d done.

All up, very happy, great little motel, and would recommend it to anyone. Particularly if you like baths, spend the extra moola and get the King Spa Studio!!!
