The best hotel in Te Anau

This hotel is just 50m from the lake. It has a decent restaurant and offers free WIFI. The staff is helpful. Although from the outside it looks like a mid-west US motel is actually much better than this.

Very nice

We stayed in a Villa room with no lake views, but it was fantastic, lots of space, modern facilities, 2 large televisions with plenty of channels, amazing bathroom, very comfy room, was hard to leave. Great lake views from the bar and free wi-fi. No wi-fi in room though. They should also invest in covered walkways from Villas to the main building. Still a great place to stay.

Excellent value for money.

Staff were really helpful upon check in. The hotel looks over the lake and is very well situated in town. An easy walk to the main shopping area.

Make sure you visit the local Cinema to see the film of a helicopter flight over Milford sound. It is really fantastic and well worth watching.

Super location, average hotel.

The view over the lake from our room was great. The rooms were average. Wi-Fi was only free in the lobby area. The restaurant did not seem to be used by anybody during our stay, it had little atmosphere.
