We are about to end our stay in Te Anau and are so happy to have chosen The Explorer as our base while we explore this amazing country of ours. We stayed in one of the motels Apartments- it is very very spacious. The lounge has two comfortable couches and looks out onto a very well kept garden and lawn area. There is also a large t.v. The kitchen has a stove top and microwave, fridge if you want to prepare your own food. Bedrooms (x2) are equally spacious. Bedroom 1 has a queen and a single bed and Bedroom 2 has a queen and two king single beds. The motel is very clean. The motel is a short 4 minute walk to the town centre and lakefront. The hosts are super helpful and great people. This is the perfect place to stay for families, couples at if you’re in Te Anau on business.

We spent 2 nights here so that we could visit the Sounds. Mary was extremely helpful with advice and arranging our bookings. She gave us advice on things to do, where to eat and orientated us. The room was very clean and comfortable as was the bathroom. There were yummy chocolates left for our consumption. We highly recommend staying here and would do so again in the future.

We had three night here and it was an excellent choice. A very tastefully modernised older motel, immaculate grounds, great heating, lovely bathroom. But perhaps the best thing are the hosts - they really go out of their way to make sure you are happy. Nice to see people in the business who seem to enjoy the job and welcome guests.
