We initially booked for two nights to do the Milford Sound trip but decided that we liked Te Anau and the holiday park and stayed an extra night to do the Glow worm cave trip.
We booked a queen studio unit since we like the convenience of an en-suite bathroom and kitchenette and looking at the size of the small A-frame chalets we are too old for shared facilities!
In an email responding to our booking we were offered a choice of a unit with spa bath or wet-floor shower and we replied that we preferred that we would like the spa bath. On arrival we were told no spa units were currently available but if we came back in an hour one should be cleaned and ready so we went into town and had a cup of hot chocolate. On returning we were given our key but on looking around the unit it was quickly apparent there was no spa bath. Reception had made a mistake and didn't actually have any spa units free that night so instead they gave us free use of the communal Sauna and spa (not worth the usual $10 charge), we moved to a spa bath unit for the following two days.
Both units we used were spacious, comfortable and well equipped, they overlooked an attractive lawn with flower beds and a rose covered BBQ gazebo and a lake view. The units weren't wheelchair accessible but only had a couple of small steps which was not a problem for my wife. There is a bus garage on the site but the bus movements didn't disturb us at all.
There is free internet available but limited to an hour per day per device, speed was not too bad during the day but slowed to an unusable crawl during the evening, there is an alternative wireless network available but you have to pay for usage.
Laundry facilities are available in several blocks but some have driers that did a poor job at $4 a load whilst others have driers that did a much better job and can be fed in $1 increments
