Loved our stay here. Room was so cute and modern, loved the bird theme. Covid measures in place. Owner friendly and looked into Milford sound for us as we were unsure about the weather, put our mind at ease. Great value for money!! Will definitely stay here if we ever come back to Te anau.

What a great review to read first thing in the morning and thank you for taking the tip to give us such a lovely review it means alot to us and our staff. Covid 19 is huge so we are trying our very best to keep every guest safe by sanitizing rooms and not being in guest spaces while they stay as much as keeping ourselves safe as we deal with guests on a daily basis. Best be safe Local Knowledge is always the best information you can find anywhere Value for money yes it pays the overheads to keep the Motel going as much as possible at the moment but as we know Kiwi's dont like paying !! so we have to keep our rates reasonable but still try to cover our costs and keep staff employed. We want to see every New Zealander come to Te Anau and see what we have to offer and not just pass through it we want you to enjoy it!! Thanks Again take care stay safe

Great review and thank you for taking the time to give us one and yes the Motel building is older but we do keep up our redecorating / refurbishing of our rooms all the time as money allows us too but we are proud of our achievements to date. We do follow the Covid 19 rules as it is also to protect us from guests as we have guests on a daily basis that we have to deal with but protect our guests from previous guests in the rooms as well which is very important to us. We will like to see you back in the future as there is always more to see and do in the area.

Stayed here with my husband recently as a base to see some of te anua and do doubtful sound. Great spot near town. Lovely maintained motel , very friendly staff on check in with some info on the local area and eating spots etc. The room was lovely , do turn on the heater on low if out during the day in winter but it heats the room quick too in the evenings and there was a very appreciated electric blanket after long day tours too . Like most motels your pretty close together so we could hear some neighbors but nothing too loud at all . Great kitchenette if you intend to use it and the bathroom was recently refurbed with a great shower etc. You can park right outside your room which is super handy and the wifi was really good for us to catch up with home while away Highly

Oh what a Superb review as well for us and our staff at the motel. Great information for people looking at staying with us in the future too. We try to provide the guest more with a homely feel and all the comforts possible within a motel. Yes we have a wee cluster of Motels all around us as we are in the older part of Te Anau first built and away from all the residential noise as well so we are in a quiet street but still handy to town just 10 min walk into town and 2 min walk to the lake plus close to the DOC centre for any trampers. Thanks for taking the time to give us a great review

This is a typical old style motel where the owners are trying hard to make it look and feel a bit different and they have pretty much succeeded. Interestingly the car park here at nights was full when other motels in the ares seemed not to be so that says something. Its good value and perfectly fine for a couple of nights

Thanks Keith We pay the price for more guest giving booking sites more in commission !!! but guests still use places like Booking.Com to book accommodation so 15-20% commission is going to them plus this then goes overseas and is no help to NZ at all but its just the way it seems to be now a days people don't like to book directly. I do market the motel on a daily basis on different platforms so this is a help to getting guest plus our reviews are a huge help for anyone looking. We do as money allows us to keep updating the motel apartments and over 7 years we have improved it so much but think the NZ Kiwiana theme is the best yet with our lovely Murals coming into the rooms slowly gets a great response from guests. Thanks for your couple of days with us and please call again

Super friendly staff members, easy check in and newly refurbished rooms! We were given an excellent price. The rooms were perfect for what we needed, we had 12 people in our group and the staff did an excellent job at making us feel welcomed. It's also super close to town and the lake. We had a lovely walk to the bird sanctuary along the lake front. Would 100% stay again!!!

Thank you its great to get a review from a group booking We do enjoy group bookings and meeting each person as they settle into their rooms and make sure all their needs are met. Our newly refurbished Studio Apartments are getting a great response and we are very proud of the way they have come up looking. We look forward to seeing you again hopefully and dealing with you in the future
