“Great spot”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

Right across the street from the lake. Great hiking down the road. Accommodation was everything that was promised. Could only get the family room the night we checked in, so plenty of room for two people. No air conditioning, but did cool down at night.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

Enjoyed our stay here! 5 of us shared a room in the steamers backpackers! Good facilities and clean rooms and kitchen! Just a couple of issues! Wifi didn't work... So we purchased some, again this would not connect! And secondly, we were trying to sit down and eat our lunch around 1pm and the cleaners asked us to get up and move whilst they hoovered the room! Sadly our hot meals went cold! Maybe suggest that the cleaners think about the times they are cleaning common areas?! Other than that a good stay!

Situated in a quiet location within easy walking distance along the lake front into Te Anau town, it's good value. We booked a bathroom cabin containing twin beds and a double bed room - all comfy beds with linen provided. Bathroom/shower was connected between the rooms with towels supplied, plenty hot water. Both rooms had Sky TV, tea/coffee, kettle, toaster and a balcony with chairs. Cooking facilities were provided in the communal kitchen. We were given a key to a small cupboard containing pots/pans, cutlery etc for our personal use. The stove tops needed updating - quite slow to heat up - but all other kitchen amenities were fine. 30 mins free Wi-Fi was on offer but we couldn't get connected but there was an area where you could pay for Wi-Fi but like most paid Wi-Fi in NZ it wasn't cheap for the allotted time so didn't bother. Staff were friendly and helpful. I'd have no problem staying there again.

Manakura Motel,
Views and facilities are superbIts new, it’s got everything you need to cater for yourselves and views to die for (providing the weather plays ball! & even when there’s a mist over the mountains it just adds to the mystery, follow that with the rainbows and who needs wall to wall sun anyway?) Set at one end of the lake uninterrupted views over the most magnificent view (forget the road in front of you, not enough traffic to worry you). Paul Carberry at New Zealand in Depth you’ve done it again!!
Open the patio window and keep on opening its got a triple door so two-thirds can be fresh air and your own balcony or patio (depending on floor) superb beds/s and loads of cooking utensils plates etc. if you want to self-cater or just make a jug of fresh coffee it’s all there.
Good shower, not a power shower but lashings of hot water, plenty of space in main room & bathroom and access to car parks on both floors so a disabled room on the 1st floor with a great view is also very possible.
It’s set in a caravan, trailer, tent, backpack, self-catering and various levels of Motel park, but the Manakuna motel is well away from road or other guests noise & interaction so a very peaceful night.
Unless you need a phone in your room it has absolutely everything including hi speed Wi-Fi.

Thankyou for your fantastic feedback and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Marakura.
You describe it well and the views are great whether it is stormy or sunny. Recently there have been some awesome rainbows which are well photographed by guests in the Park.
Enjoy your travels

This place has everything including being the base for one of the popular bus lines. It was clean, beautifully situated, quiet, and filled with friendly people from all over the world. The staff were extremely helpful. It was just a short walk to the National Park office where Great Walks transportation begins. The only negative was the limited and marginal wifi service. i had to go sit right under the antenna to get it to work. I'd suggest providing more picnic tables for campsites.

Room Tip: Campsites and small bunk houses available as well as more upscale motel rooms. Kitchen facilities o...

We had a small cabin with two single beds at this hotel. The room was well equipped with a kitchen and plenty of utensils. The beds were comfortable enough. Location was great and staff was extremely friendly, Even though the hotel is not in the city center, driving and walking to restaurants was extremely easy. The only downside to this hotel, and any hotel really that has a kitchen, was the lingering odor of cooked food. Property was very nice and quiet.

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

Room Tip: studio motels very good
