“Very nicely finished rooms, great setting”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

One night stay as a layover before the last dash to MIlford Sound. Host very helpful and gave good advice. The room was immaculate and had fantastic views. A standard lamp or sone more subtle lighting in the lounge/kitchen would go well. A good place to stay in its own right, not just as a staging post!

Room Tip: Better views upstairs- worth the extra

We did a lot of research on where to stay in Te Anau. We were going to be there for three nights and wanted a nice place with a lake view, two bedrooms and a kitchen. We settle on The Fiordland Lakeview Motel. After choosing this Motel we learned that they also had a three bedroom house on the property and it was available. It was a wonderful choice.

The house was nicely set up with a large living room (lake view) and adjoining kitchen with eating space. The kitchen was well furnished and we cooked our own dinners every night. The bedrooms were all nice. The bathroom is divided so that one room has a sink, tub and shower and the other one has the toilet and sink. This was a great set up for four people.

They have a laundry facility there which was very hand.

Everyone at the reception desk was helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. We decided to buy a DVD about the Fiordland area and they provided us a DVD hooked up to the TV so that we could watch it while we were there.

This was a great spot and we highly recommend it to others.

We recently spent a comfortable four night stay at this motel. The one bedroom apartments are on the upper floor, & have a front balcony overlooking Lake Te Anau. The location is around 1 km from the town centre , Te Anau is the best base if your aim is to visit Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound. The latter is far closer to Te Anau than Queenstown..Our apartment was comfortable and well equipped. Reception staff are very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Upper floor one bedroom apartments are quite spacious and offer great lake views

The lady in the front office was extremely nice and helpful. Our room is very large and cozy, with a great view. The woman gave us loads of good advice and helped us make reservations. I would recommend this hotel and stay here again if presented the chance. The price for the room was very reasonable also. The kitchenette helps you save money as you can prepared some of your meals in it.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The welcome we received on arrival set the tone for a great stay. It's a beautiful location where all rooms have a stunning view of the lake. Perfectly placed to visit both Milford and Doubtful Sound, the motel offers spacious accommodation with everything you could need.

This place is excellent.

The positive experience was started by a very friendly welcome we received from the person on reception.

The apartment was big, clean and well appointed. It comprised a bedroom, bathroom, lounge-room and kitchenette. The bed was huge, comfortable with an electric blanket. There is a television in both the bedroom and lounge-room. The kitchenette has a microwave, two hotplates and a good selection of quality cooking utensils. Towels and toiletries are provided. 200MB of free WiFi is allocated to each guest.

The uninterrupted view of the lake and mountains from our ground floor room was fantastic. It is only a five minute walk into town along the waterfront.

Next time we are in Te Anau we will definitely stay again.

We stayed here for 3 nights and were impressed by the views and great staff. The rooms are plenty big with balconies overlooking the lake and mountains. When visiting Milford and Doubtful Sounds it really is worth staying in Te Anau as it is MUCH closer than Queenstown.

Room Tip: I think best views are probably from 2nd floor--although first is probably fine--all face the lake.
