Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A functional, practical place to stay to break up the journey to Milford Sounds. Staff nice and rooms good and reflective of the photos posted. Rooms no problems at all but the general areas (stairs and corridors) dated and smell damp. If you are looking for luxury or somewhere special not a place for you, if you are looking for practical and a nights stay with parking it’s perfect.

The bed was of good quality and the room overall was well furnished and equipped with everything one would expect in a hotel room. The carpets need replacement, though. This was a nice and pleasant stay.

Cheaper than other place in te Anau but 3 star rating is a little optimistic. What we needed was clean and adequate for purpose but not of a standard to match the price. Double bed for two is old fashioned and no longer common. Bathroom was “tight”. Tea and coffee was provided but tasted “funny”.

When we arrived we were truly put in a shoe box, I went down and complained honestly two people in this room was one too many. The girl then showed up and said her mistake she had put us in the wrong room. Just in time as we were about to walk out. The next room was much larger (it could not be any smaller) The hotel is very dated and in need of a lot of repairs linen and room were clean though- the only reason we stayed, to be honest. Te Anau is such a truly beautiful place but if we ever return we will find somewhere else to stay.

Don't use this place booked in for 3 night the room had broken furniture ripped curtains but we thought well we had booked inn and would make the best of it. And then the next morning we had mice running around and couldn't lock the door . This is a very run down property and should not be open for business. UK environmental health would close this place ASAP . Mice droppings on the bed

The guy who checked us in at 930pm was the friendliest and most welcoming person ever. Walking down the hallway to the room I wasn’t expecting much but was surprised that it wasn’t as run down as first anticipated. I’m not saying it was a brand new flash hotel but it was good for what it was, more motel than hotel but would stay again as for the price point it’s what I would expect.

I had been tossing up between a two star and a three star, as I really unless it has been very bad give poor reviews. I feel sorry that covid probably has contributed a wee bit to the state of the hotel. I stayed here part of a group- so it fitted in I guess to what we needed. I can deal with outdated, bit poor, average breakfast - reminds me of backpacking overseas. The only reason it got two stars was there was no water pressure to the point - you cant even have a proper shower. It was just a wee dribble of water- depending on what you need- really dirt cheap and don't care about things like that then this is fine. However until it has a complete makeover I woudl not stay here again - purely based on the fact I need a decent hot shower.

Great room with a bathroom, TV, bath, free coffee, free milk, double bed, fridge. On ground floor and there is a balcony with a mini put and BBQ areas. Great service from the manager. Smallish room but fine for what we needed.

My Partner and I stayed here on our trip to the South Island. We stopped in Te Anau and had only originally planned a one night stay. We got to this motel in the afternoon, dumped our bags and went exploring. We liked the place so much we decided we would spend more time in Te Anau. When we got back to the barracks (this is what they felt like) they were airy and quite like a ghost town especially walking down the long hallways to our room. The room was ok but the wind howling down the hallway and through the gaps in the windows made for a long night. Water pressure? Well I could have pee'd better pressure over myself to wash with. The pool was empty, my partner liked that the place had a gym (as advertised) but only found a rusty exercycle and seized cross trainer. The spa was broken and was likely last used by the 12 Disciples. Staff were nice though and nothing against them. I just hope they can find some money and turn the place into something nice In short we got up in the morning, paidcthe bill and went to the Top 10 Holiday Park who took pitty on us and with some juggling around they found us a really nice room.

Do not confuse with Fiordland Lakeside which looks delightful. I wished I had read TA reviews before booking and paying for our room at the Hotel/Motel on the hill. Having said that, accommodation inTe Anau is generally overpriced and heavily booked due to bus tours etc. Our room was tiny, had an antiquated flat screen TV which only played the shopping channel and a show box sized refrigerator on the floor. The only shelving was a small box unit behind the door and the wifi was useless. As Kenny2222 and Rusty S said, the place is weird. The pool was emply and the restaurant and bar have been closed for 11 years, which is not what the booking agency advertised. Also the mini golf looked like an earthquake had ripped through it and the games room was stuffy and smelly. The staff was surly and unhelpful, but we finally shamed a guy into driving us into town for dinner when it was raining. We had free parking and that's about the only positve I can say about our stay. Te Anau is lovely, but sadly recent storms prevented us from doing the trips we had planned.
