Terrific accomodation in Te Anau

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Nov 2023via mobile
We spent two nights here as part of an organised cycle tour (Around the Mountain). We were stoked to be dropped off here after having cycled 50km + from Walter Peak station.

The motel is situated right on the waterfront and truely lives up to its name. The unit we stayed in was on the ground floor and the gardens out our front door were stunning. The unit itself was very clean and tidy and had all that you needed for a couple of days or longer (I’d happily still be there). You could comfortably cook in these facilities or there are any number of restaurants just a short walk away.

The staff are friendly and there is a wee garage where you can store bikes and that sort of gear should you need to. All in all it’s a lovely place to stay.

Good location. Lake view. Beautiful in the early morning. Feels good to walk by the lake. Hotel is clean. Warm floor at the bathroom. Clean kitchen. We arrive late and couldn’t see the entrance driveway. Not light on and no sign .

Would thoroughly recommend this well located place. This was our third stay here and, again, we were completely satisfied with every aspect of our visit. The apartment was clean, well stocked with all the essentials, and had a perfect view over Lake Te Anau. The price was, by a considerable margin, the best value for money of all the places we stayed during our 5-week New Zealand holiday. Feel certain the negative reviews dating back to 2018 must relate to when the place was under different ownership. The staff we encountered were welcoming, efficient, and ready and willing to deal with any questions or queries. If booking, would recommend specifically requesting a first floor apartment with lake view.

We had booked a studio unit, and were very impressed that it was the biggest studio we have ever stayed in - queen bed plus a single and full kitchen. Only thing I would suggest is that they shift the TV from above the wardrobe - where I couldn't see it to the blank wall in front of the couch.

A great view of the lake and close to the shops. We had an upstairs 1 bedroom unit that faced the lake. The bedroom was small but adequate, and the lounge had a couch and dining table. It was perfect for a couple. The laundry facilities were good, and it was great to be able to get our washing done.

Beautiful lake view right in front of living room. My 1 bedroom motel unit is spacious for 4-5 adults, wifi is strong, bedding is adequately comfortable and comes with seperated toilet/shower. Only 1 unit of heater in living room but the beds in the bedroom come with electric blankets. An excellent place to stay for family.

Room tip: Lakeview room is beautiful
