Clean & comfy stay

Review of The Village Inn
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Jan 2018
We spent one night at the Village Inn as we were visiting relatives in Te Anau. The staff at reception were friendly and the room was comfy and clean. A bit dated yes, however this didn't bother us and we were happy with the location and the price we paid for the room.
If you're after a clean & fairly cheap place, this is your stop.

Reviewed 15 January 2018

We arrived off the street afterseeing they had a vacancy online. Receptionist barly spoke english. Asked us what the price of the room was....should have rang alarm bells, but we were so tired after driving all day. Told us where our room was and left us to it. The room itself smelt like something out of a tv motel homicide thriller. There were stains all over the carpet, recent coffee cups stains on furniture and bedside cabinets, the curtains were ripped and discoloured. We have no words to describe the bathroom. We left the room and went back to reception instantly. We were offered an alternative room which was clean, but dated, two light bulbs not working, no bathroom fan so bathroom moisture spread into the main room, the tv flickered, the internet was the worst we have experienced and you felt like you were staying in a 1970's Route 66 middle of the desert, I have no other option kind of hotel. To cap it all after explaining how bad the first room was, the receptionist said she WAS AWARE and SHOULD NOT and WOULD NOT be renting that room out, however, no more than 15 minutes after arriving in our alternative room ...that first room HAD BEEN LET....unless you are part of an asian bus tour group, stay elewhere.

Paid 160 for a night here! It’s not worth any more than 85.
Bed are uncomfortable, units are extremely dated and several large lights didn’t work. The tv could only pump out a fuzzy picture and tour buses of Asians arrived constantly. The only good thing was it’s close enough to walk to town.

Room had several lights not working and only frontage a metre from parked cars. No sitting out. Reception was empty with no atmosphere and bar also empty and unused.Told no evening meal as large group arriving but ok for 2nd night. Alas untrue again no evening meal. So unless you are in a group (bus tour) forget this transit place with no atmosphere no service. Many much more convivial places to stay in town.

Room tip: At back and not disabled equipped which was assigned to us

On arrival the Hotel looked a little dated and sterile, my opinion soon changed when we were assisted by a very friendly staff member. The room was surprisingly large and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was also large and clean and the restaurant had a good selection of meals.
The town centre is a 5-10 minute walk away with a big choice of eateries.
Very good stay and would definitely come back.
