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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Best value accommodation I have ever had for a motel and a very nicely updated room. Room had everything you would need for an overnight stay. The motel is walking distance down to lake or through park to the shops and restaurants.

We stayed here as a base when visiting Milford Sound. Our room was a twin studio and was excellent. There was loads of space and was furnished to a great standard. The shower was powerful and the whole unit was exceptionally clean. You can park right outside your unit and it's a couple of minutes walk to the lake shore or into the town centre for the restaurants and supermarkets. It was very good value and we booked direct to get a 10% discount. Highly recommend.

Had a very comfortable stay here. Everything you needed in your motel room. Very clean and a short walk to the main centre through a park and down at the end of the street is Lake Te Anau which goes into the main town to cafes/bars & restaurants. Very friendly owners.

We stayed at Parklands for 3 days. It is an easy walk to the lake and the town. The rooms are extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated. Shona and Gary are very helpful and when I left something behind organised to get it to me in Queenstown before I left for Australia. Would definitely recommend and I will be staying there next time I am in Te Anau. Lorraine
