Staff are sweet helpful always ready to help. The room was a bit tacky. Basically we will be coming back again to the same hotel in the next 2 years. Just loved it. ( was missing electric blanket )

Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Dining room staff very efficient and friendly and the food was delicious with a large choice of meals for dinner. Free Wireless internet was an added bonus.

The "villas" are behind the hotel and have no view of the lake. The villa exteriors are drab and in need of a good clean, but the interiors are in good shape. Overall a reasonable choice.

The rooms are a little old but clean & pleasant; no old carpet smell or stale smoke smells :p The lake view room has a lovely view of the lake, but you see the path way and main road before the lake comes into view. Hence not much privacy with the curtains drawn.

This was our favourite stay in New Zealand. Our villa was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. Very quiet and close to restaurants etc. We were extremely happy with our stay.

Great villa set in the hotel's grounds. We'd certainly recommend this hotel over a 'normal' hotel. Location is on the fore-shore and is only a few minutes stroll from the restaurants - why would you stay anywhere else?

I was ignored and left waiting when checking in- not a good start. Our villa was situated in a lovely rose garden, but the buildings looked old and tired. The walls of the spa pool area were mouldy making it look tatty and dirty. The leisure area of the spa pool was dark and dingy with old outdoor furniture compared to the clean outdoor swimming pool area. Our suite was musty smelling with a tiny bathroom. The peeling varnish on the wood trimmings were unsightly. The vinyl floor was dirty. The flush button on the toilet was loose and wobbly. Tissues were not replaced when finished. The paper blinds on the windows were flimsy. There were large blobs of grease on the bedside unit and the leather couch. The rubbish bin was hidden in a cupboard by the mini bar. The carpet was not vacuumed during our stay because some spilt snacks were still on the floor when we left. Dinner service was slow on the one night we dined at the hotel. All in all, a disappointing experience.

From the description on the website (combined with the address) we had the impression we would have a lake view, so were a little disappointed to find the villas were quite isolated from the hotel; a short drive around the back of the entire complex. The location is quite central however with the beautiful lake straight across the road. The villas are charming, roomy and very comfortable. The gardens were tidy but the empty concrete boxes against the villas detracted. Receptionist was the only staff member we spoke with and she was lovely. You must visit the Pie Shop in Te Anau. Absolutely the best pies anywhere!!

An older hotel that has been renewed. It had a really nice feel about it and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Nice bar too.
