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.

Awesome place to stay Mel and Mark were the best hosts. Close to the Lake for a nice cold but refreshing swim. Shops just around the corner. Stress free and relaxing I will most definitely be visiting in the future!

Staying here was one of the best lodging decisions we made during our end-to-end South Island drive. Clean, spacious room, helpful and friendly owner and it was very pet friendly for our small dog. I can see why they were fully booked the whole time we were there. We will look no further if and when we visit Te Anau in the future.

Hubby and I had a very comfortable 5-day stay at this Motel, and would definitely recommend it to fellow travellers. We had a 1-bedroom unit that could sleep five. It would have to be one of the most spacious Motels we have stayed in (and there have been many over the years!). Good storage, very clean and had everything we needed. Hosts Mark and Mel were really great, very friendly and helpful. And Oh! that shower! Wish we had one at home! Don't expect a view of the lake as this Motel is in a quiet area, but within walking distance to the town centre and lake. Would very happily stay there again should the need arise.

Quiet from traffic, central to everywhere we were going and really comfortable units. Love the power shower. Units are spacious and have everything you need for a great weekend away. Lots of ideas to make your visit a more interesting one as well

Had a really lovely overnight stay here after doing a Milford Sound cruise. The units were cosy and comfortable. We walked into town for dinner and then again in the morning along the lake front. Thanks for a great stay.

We had a 2 bedroom unit for 2 adults, 3 kids. It was extremely well priced, super warm & the bathroom was very modern, the whole unit was extremely clean. I would highly recommend for families. Great location within walking distance to town and lakefront.

Really comfortable rooms, warm, roomy, welcoming hosts, can't fault them. Rooms were very clean and the hot shower was just great on a sore back after travelling a distance. Even in winter, a very nice place, central to everything without the high prices.
