This is my sixth night on the South Island and this is the first place the Free Internet has worked with no hassle, intermittency, or unadvertised surcharge. So bonus points off the bat. Also, the grounds of this place has both chickens and a trampoline, so double bonus.
We got upgraded to a nicer room than what we booked, and the room was quite spacious, with a deck. The room was charming in its layout, clean, and well-kept. The bed was fully comfortable. Very quiet. The owner is super-likable and was helpful about things in the area, and seems to be making a go of it with this motel. Only nitpicky downside we experienced is that my wife was looking for a hair-dryer in the morning and there wasn't one. We would stay here again if we spend another night in Te Anau.
