As stated in previously comments, basically clean, sheets not ironed and towels very ragged, with strings hanging and quite small. Definitely not worth the price nor the rave reviews. You can walk to town but it is a bit of a walk. The glow worms were great, but the whole town is tired.

From the reviews I expected much better. Whilst everything appeared clean, the bed sheets and pillow cases were not ironed. How would one know wether the sheets been washed from the previous occupant? Properly laundered linen would be neat and crisp, this was NOT. Quite shuddering to think they had not been cleaned from the previous occupant. I’m sure this was not the case but it leaves one thinking it could be. The lady we saw in the office was very pleasant and helpful but the overall experience was one of basic facilities with cheap furniture and fittings.

My wife and I were travelling around the South Island and had booked this motel for the 5th and 6th of February, prepaying through hotels.com. Severe weather just prior to our arrival date closed some roads, including the one leading to Te Anu, where this motel is located. Road was closed for a couple of days including the day we were to arrive. In early morning I called the hotel on four occasions, never getting past the voice mail, so I left two detailed messages to have them contact, to hopefully work out what to do with my prepaid reservation. I did not hear from them, so eventually just cancelled the reservation, and booked in another that could be reached. Hotels.com attempted to get my money back, but the motel refused, and that was the end of it. There were many people trapped in Te Anu, who could not get out, so I suspect either the motel double dipped, or I paid for someone else to stay there. Other hotels motels refunded, but not these people.

Stayed a night. Room was clean and tidy, kitchen facilities good and great WiFi. As there are only 3 TV stations available, they offer free dvds to watch. Only problem is that office closes around 4.30 so not able to ask for one. Bed was comfortable and room a decent size

This block of around six motel units is the perfect quiet spot for your independent traveller.

You’re basically left to your own devices (key to our unit was left out for us on arrival, and the office seems to be closed or unattended the majority of the time). This didn’t bother us, as we knew there were numbers we could call if we needed anything.

The unit was well fitted out with everything you would need and could expect for the price.

The location is good being just a block from the lakefront / a short walk away to the town centre (fair selection of cafes and restaurants nearby).

A good reliable choice for a short Te Anau get-away.
