“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Stayed here and at Aden. Both are good choices. This one had better water pressure in the shower, and truly unlimited internet. Both make it a better choice for me. They didn't have a sink in the kitchenette which was not great and might bother someone more than it did me. Not as good a DVD collection, but still good enough for a motel.

Stayed here for 3 nights in a one bedroom apartment. The accommodation was spacious with a large lounge/dining area and a small, but well equiped, kitchenette. The location is very peaceful being a 10 minute or so walk from the town centre.

Would recommend a stay here, good value.

We stayed at the Arran Hotel on our over night trip to the Milford area.
The room was very clean, large and tidy. The best thing was the free wifi. Great value and close to town. No wonder it was full.

We stayed 4 nights in February and the motel was full every night. the motel is situated away from any traffic noise in quiet side road - 20 minutes walking distance to town for us pensioners - Kiwi's will say 10mins). Studio's are average size, nicely furnished, decent modern shower-room, sitting area outside our unit or in a small shared garden area. Problem in that there was no washing up sink, so we had to use the bathroom sink - which was a pain.
The owners very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: If you are staying more than a couple of nights - pay the extra for a 1 bedroom unit.

We arrived cold and wet into Te Anau at the beginning of this month, having come straight off the trail. Mary was very friendly and let us get warm before checking in. Her husband was kind enough to give us a lift back to the trailhead the next day. The rooms were clean and warm, just what we needed. I would urge people visiting Te Anau to consider a stay at Arran, you will be well looked after.

We spent 2 nights at this friendly motel so that we had a whole day to explore Milford Sound and the glow worm caves. Located in a quiet street with other motels around. Very comfortable room with all the standard features. Parking on-site and wi-fi available. Motel is about a 5-10 minute easy walk along the lake to shops and restaurants. Plenty of choice for places to eat and a large supermarket in town. If you get the chance - try a pie from the small pie shop. Best ever! I would recommend this motel.
