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...

This motel is very clean and the view across the lake is beautiful plus it's a good base for Milford Sound. We paid $200 a night which we feel was excessive as the bathroom was very basic with very old shower with shower curtain and very old toilet. Brown towels Mmmm really not sure about those. The lounge was also...

We had an accessible room with a view of the lake. The furnishings are dated, but generally still in good condition, and the room was clean. Good sized kitchen, large bathroom (including wheelchair accessible shower). An easy 10 min walk to centre of Te Anau. Tours will pick you up from your accommodation. Good wifi

We spent two nights in one of the 5 star rated studio apartments. The facilities were new and clean, the bed very comfortable and there were decent pillows supplied. The cooking facilities were basic but sufficient for us to cook our preferred rolled oats for breakfast, something that no motel, hotel, cafe or restaurant has ever done for us over...

We had an upstairs one bedroom apartment with a great view of the lake from the living area. The apartment was clean and the bed comfortable. Shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. There was a table and chairs and basic cooking facilities so, if you came back after a big day out on the lake, you could cook...

The view is great from the front, it is a 10 minute walk into town and the lakefront walk is just across the road. It is quiet and after the bustle of Queenstown very enjoyable. The room was crowded and we were woken up by gurgling pipes each time a neighbour ran water. Sort of ho hum, with more hum...

In a lovely loaction by the lake. The holiday park caters for campers, backpackers and self catering. The site was very well organised and the communal areas seemed clean, I did not personally use them just an observation. We stayed in the Marakura Studio which was really nice and faced the sea. the Room was clean, modern and nicely decorated....

We stayed 4 night here. Had a first floor room which was very convenient as we didn't have to haul luggage upstairs. The kitchen are had everything we needed to fix breakfast and lunch. There was a nice table to eat on and comfortable couch for watching TV or just looking out at the lake. The view was awesome. Price...
