We unfortuneately booked an ensuite studio room which was a disabled unit and very small.
We viewed the other 1 bedroom units which did look very nice with plenty of room but we could not upgrade as they were all full, so our stay was a disappointment. The garden outside was pleasant and the motel only a short walk to Te Anau township.

Maybe this time you will accept my true experience of this motel. I have no idea how this venue achieved 4+ stars

Having stayed in an 'apartment room' with bedroom/living room separate, this particular room Number 9 was not up to scratch. The bed was at least comfortable. The bathroom was bare of shelving so wetpack had to be stowed on floor. The showerdoor didn't close, the showerhead at 7' was immoveable in any way. The toilet cistern was not attached to the wall, giving rise to movement. Yes the towel rail was heated. There was no bathroom ventilation other than to open the window.

Room Tip: Do not accept Room 9! It also is near a barking dog! Other studio rooms appear to be improved. I saw...

We stayed here in February 7/8th and our room was very clean and comfortable.
Quiet location, 5 minute walk to the lake front and 10 minute walk to the town centre.
Staff very friendly and happy to help.
Good value for money, we have stayed once before and would recommend it as a very good motel.

Stayed at Anchorage motel in February 2014. This is the best motel we've ever stayed, It's quiet, it's clean and great equipment. Just ticked all the boxes. Location itself is 8 minutes walk to town centre or 5 minutes walk to the lake. Staff are friendly, checking in was a breeze, get to check in early even though usually check in time is 2 pm. We only booked for studio room, but it's just enough for 2 of us. Have small pantry with great and sufficient equipment. Bathroom was great, quite spacious and they have heated floor and heated towel rack, a must in South Island i think. Bed is comfortable with heaps of pillows. Have TV and DVD also SkyTV. Oh and great thing is they have free WiFi. Love love love! This is the plus point for us, since we always pay for our internet in every hotel that we stayed in New Zealand no matter in South or North Island. So this is great! Would love to come back to this motel in a heartbeat if we have the chance to come back.

Our room was the disabled room, so the bathroom was large & we had plenty of large towels. Clean & comfortable. Well equipped for light cooking. It is a short 5 minute walk to the lake front & a pleasant 10 - 15 minute walk into the town centre. We had a 2 night stay here in room 214.

Despite the large bathroom, there was no bathroom bench to put toiletries on, instead we stored ours on the floor.

We felt very fortunate to book the stand-alone cottage, which was spacious and private -- very reasonably priced. Everything we needed. And a great location, too. Nice to have a laundry facility, although this was more expensive than at other motels on our trip (it was certainly better than a laundromat).

Hi,
Thanks for your review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the comforts of the three bedroom house that adjoins the motel complex. It is a great place to spread out and relax with those home comforts. Thank you for staying with us.
