An excellent choice in Te Anau

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 Mar 2024
The Asure Motel exceeded my expectations. Our room was huge and very clean with a large sitting area and a nice balcony overlooking lovely trees and yards. The little kitchenette was perfect for making tea or coffee in the mornings, the bed was comfortable and the shower had great water pressure and temperature. Also, the decor was much nicer than I expected from a motel (even in NZ). The manager told us that it had been updated during the pandemic.

The location is ideal, just a short walk through a pretty local park to the main street for restaurants, cafes and the grocery store. The one drawback, though it wasn't an issue for us, was that it does't have a lake view.

There's also a sheltered outdoor picnic area with grills and comfortable seating for guest use.

The staff were all very nice and we appreciated the guest laundry ($4 NZD per wash; $4 NZD to dry). Free parking too.

For dinner, we highly recommend fusion restaurant Ditto. We ate there twice and got take out one night which we enjoyed on our balcony. Delicious!

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!

Room tip: You will need 2 x $2 NZ coins for the laundry, but reception always has change handy.

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.
