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.

This motel felt good right from the moment we checked in. Ahbi offered us fresh milk and carried our bags up to our first floor apartment. This might not sound like much but to a couple in their sixties these things mean a lot. The room was huge and, although it was an older style motel, it had been refurbished and was impeccably clean with all amenities. And it was just a short walk to the lake and townsite for restaurants, supermarket etc.

We stayed in an upstairs 2 bed apartment in this well situated motel in Te Anau. We arrived before check in time but our room was ready and we were warmly welcomed. The apartment was large with a lovely balcony overlooking the well tended gardens and bbq area. Everything was clean and the bed was comfortable. We didnt make use of the kitchen facilities apart from the fridge as we ate out. The toilet, sink and shower were in separate compartments of one room which was unusual but clean and functional. Definitely a good idea to book restaurants as they do fill quickly. Would stay here again.

We booked three separate stays for two nights each, as we arrived in Te Anau to head off for some of the Great Walks. The fantastic team held our suitcases for us while we were off tramping, and welcomed us with a smile every time we returned. The staff here are so lovely and welcoming. The rooms are spacious, clean and warm. The beds were super comfy. Located within an easy walk to the main street. Cannot recommend this place enough!

My husband and I stayed at the Asure Explore Motel and Apartments on our recent NZ South Island holiday. We picked Te Anau so we could visit Milford Sound. The weather had turned rainy so we chanced arriving at our accommodation early (before lunchtime). Our room was ready and waiting with housekeeping ensuring that all rooms were ready for early arrivals due to the weather. We were accommodated in a very spacious, comfortable and quiet ground floor apartment within walking distance of the lake and town centre. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

The room was very clean and tidy, and large too. We would certainly return here if we got the chance. It’s a 5 minute walk across the park to shops and eateries. It’s a good idea to book as they fill up pretty quickly around 5-6pm. Reception staff are very helpful.

This was a great stay. The unit was large and very clean. It opened on to a patio with chairs and table with a gazebo across the lawn. The flowers were very pretty and there were many birds. Super convenient to restaurants, grocery and the lakefront. There was a kitchen with dishes and cookware. We didn’t do the breakfast for $10 as we wanted to eat out. I’d stay again

I had stayed at this hotel with my family (wife and two boys, ages 9 and 12) as part of our South Island road trip. Our 2 bedroom unit was fairly spacious and could accommodate a family of six. The kitchen was fully equipped as well. The unit had easy access to a large garden in front and the surroundings were peaceful and quiet. It felt that we were in a nice residential neighbourhood, with walking access to the town centre. The bathroom was bit of a let down. The flush toilet was in a separate, very small room. The shower booth did not have glass wall (just a curtain) so the whole bathroom would get flooded. Overall, it was a decent stay.

The host was super friendly and attentive! She made us feel very welcome upon arrival and provided a lot of information to help us around. From the outside, we couldn't tell how spacious the room was! Decent area for kitchenette and bathroom. Very spacious living room with 1 queen bed and 1 single bed plus sofa and dining area. The beds were very comfortable with adjustable heating. Room and toilet were very clean with good amount of towels. Wifi was a bit spotty at times and would be better if there is more space in the shower area to place more bottles. Anyway these are just minor issues. Overall, it was a great stay for 3 nights!

My wife and I took a self drive touring holiday on South Island New Zealand from the 17th March to the 11th April 2023. Apart from the first 2 nights and the last night where we stayed in a hotel in Christchurch we were self catering and stayed in accommodation that offered cooking facilities. I have reviewed each of the hotel/motels we stayed in. The following reviews cover the accommodation and some of the facilities/visits we made on the trip. If you would like to view the rest of the reviews please click on my username and all my reviews will be listed. 9th to 12th days of our self drive tour of South Island March/April 2023 Asure Exporer Motel Te Anau. We stayed at the Explorer Motel for four nights from 23rd to 27th March. Welcome. We were welcomed by the owner Mary who gave us some milk. Mary showed us two different apartments and gave us a choice of which one to take. We took a room on the first floor. Mary was very nice and provided us with a lot of information about the area, the various trips and where to eat including The Te Anau Club. This is a type of working mens club, but open to non members. (See my separate review) Mary kindly booked us on a trip to Marlborough Sound for the following day. Service. Both Nigel and Mary were very accommodating. Nigel carried our suitcases up the stairs for us. Our room was serviced every day and the cleaner even cleared and put away our washing up. Location. The Motel is located on the edge of the town centre. There are a number of restaurants and a medium size supermarket about 5 minutes walk away. Comfort. The room was quite large, one of the largest we stayed in on our trip. It was very nice. It was light and airy and decorated to a high standard. It contained a king bed, a queen bed, armchairs, a coffee table, a dining table and chairs and a kitchenette with microwave, standard fridge, cooking utensils and an electric frying pan. The unit did not have a hotplate but Nigel the co-owner provided us with a portable hotplate and two saucepans. We were able to cook all the meals we needed to. There was a large flat screen TV. The bathroom was nice and reasonably large with an excellent shower and electric wall heater. The room had wide patio doors and a balcony with table and chairs overlooking the well kept garden. Cleanliness. The room and bathroom were very clean. The bedding was clean and good quality. The towels were good quality. WiFi. The WiFi was a bit patchy. Mary allowed me to use the motel’s private network so that I got a stronger signal. Mary and Nigel are planning to improve the Wifi network and have engaged a consultant to make improvements. So if you come to The Explorer Motel from now on the WiFi should be better. Conclusion. Overall this was one of the best places we stayed at during our 4 week tour.. Comfortable, clean and the owners were very nice and accommodating. If we returned to Te Anau we would stay here again.

The room was very comfortable and tidy. The hosts were very welcoming. Close to town and lake. We forgot that Easter Friday you could not purchase alcohol so the host delivered beer to our room. Which a very nice gesture. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to travel to Te Anau.
