We stayed one night en route to Milford Sound. We had second story studio room with two beds. Pros: fantastic view of the lake, decent kitchen, short walk to town. Cons: old furniture, a couple holes in the wall in the bathroom, and despite what other reviewers said--the woman who checked us in was quite unfriendly and seemed to want...

We were going to Te Anau to stay and visit Milford Sound. There a a large number of motels in town but a lot of people stay in that area for the trips to the sounds. This was a nice place with a great view of the lake. The rooms are small but work ok for a couple of nights....

Had a great night sleep here! Only one night but had a great impression. The interior is a little dated but definitely served its purpose with its great lake views and location in relation to the Te-anau glow worm tours, city and within reasonable driving distance to Milford sound!

Friendly reception, we had room in main block and house at one end of motel, house very spacious and warm but a little dated butt good value for money, room comfortable with two bathrooms, house only had one bathroom. House great to sit inside and look at lake. Clean and tidy overall

We stopped here for 2 nights as it is an excellent base for visiting either Milford or Doubtfull sound. We had an excellent lake view and although the apartment was very well equipped, it was a bit cramped, particularly the bedroom.

Stayed in 1 bedroom apartment with balcony. Very neat and clean and the views from the apartment spectacular. All amenities that are needed in self contained apartment. Gardens are immaculate, and easy walk into town.

Very tidy and clean Motel; right opposite the beautiful lake and 5min walk to main road for dinner. We had booked the room a month earlier; so the two double bed rate was reasonable for two single females. We were also allowed to organise a late booking for a continental breakfast which was much appreciated so we could get an...
