Me and other three stayed at this motel it was good stay over all. Good size room and good facilities. Price was average. We did Spa and Sauna which was really good to have at this motel. Staff was good helpful but did not find any smile on their face. Free internet and near to main town centre.

Good location, spacious room, well-appointed kitchen, clean and tidy. The only small negative thing about our room was that two of the five beds were in the same area as the kitchen and the other three were only separated by a folding door, which did not properly close, so you could not keep the smell of cooking out. WiFi was...

Rooms were a little on the small size but fully equipped and stocked with a fridge, microwave, coffee plunger and a full dinner set for any meals eaten at the motel. Shower facilities were good, the place was located close to town....(5 min walk) and the bed was comfy. Reasonably priced and the only set back we had was trying...

The room was clean and huge and has everything you need. You can park your car right outside as well. The location is a shorty drive to town if you plan to visit the glow worm caves. We were also picked up at the accommodation beside ours, when we travelled to milford sound.

This is a nice basic little motel located just aways from the main tourist traffic to ensure a quiet and peaceful stay. It’s a short few minutes walk through the park to the main town and eating areas and the same to the lakeside. Room size was quite spacious with decent sized separate toilets and bath. Cleanliness was very good...

We happened to stay here four years to the day after our first visit to Te Anau -- when we stayed here as well! The motel has been renovated and expanded since then and this time we had a room with a kitchen area and a veranda, where we enjoyed a sunny afternoon knitting and reading. I think it was...

We enjoyed our stay in Parklands (Te Anau) because we wanted to visit the Milford Sound. The owner (Shona) was very helpful and friendly. We stayed in the studio unit #9 that had a pretty view of the park and mountain. The room was clean and bed was comfy with basic kitchenette. There is a cooking area in the open...

I stayed with my family for two nights in Te Anau, a beautiful lake side town en route Queenstown and Milford sound. The motel had family apartments with good parking facilities. We were happy to stay in Parklands motel as it made our drive to Milford sound shorter and more comfortable. The hotel was well equipped in all respects and...

We stayed 2 nights in this motel. It is right next to town. There is a walkway across the street that will take you into the middle of the town centre in 5 minutes. There are various restaurants, 2 supermarkets, numerous souvenir shops. It is a small town so basically everything is close by. We had a bigger room which...
