great place to stay to do Milford Sound

We have stayed here a few times on our trips to New Zealand.It is only 3 star but always clean,comfy & we always get a good nights sleep.Close enough to walk into town & lovely walk around the lake.If it's luxury you want book elsewhere but value for money we can't fault it.

Relaxing

As our rooms were upstairs (and the Hotel does not have a lift) our bags were taken up to our rooms but on leaving we had to manage that ourselves. The Tv in one room worked fine but the other room near the fire escape was fuzzy. As we stayed over Labour weekend it was cold and necessary for us to stay in our rooms more. Because of this we saw the cleaning Staff and they were very friendly to us and my Grand daughter.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Wanted to go to Milford Sound but the road was closed. A lovely lady in one of the Shops recommend our going to the Cinema to see a locally made documentary on Fiordland filmed by the Owner of the Cinema and filmed from his helicopter. Fantastic, saw more of the Country than we could have travelling by car

Nice location but poor maintainence

It is a fairly standard motel but well positioned by the lake and an easy walk to town. We arrived late and the room smelt fusty. We expected this to go once the windows were opened but a strong unpleasant smell lasted all night. In the morning we discovered that the fridge had previously leaked water onto the carpet and this was soaking wet causing the smell. The fridge was quite noisy so maybe the previous occupant had turned it off to sleep. This should have been fixed by the cleaning staff. Also internet access was expensive and the staff seemed unfamiliar with the charging system.

Great location right on the lake

A little out of the main street, great location on the lake. Lovely room and dining room. Staff very helpful. No lift to second floor rooms so have to carry bags upstairs. Washers and driers available.

this hotel was one of many in

this hotel was one of many in te anau and it was good. the setting is more like an old style hotel - some of the aesthetics may look a bit dated but the service was great, concierge assistance when needed and the email system good too. for a couple of nights stay - it suited its purpose. the parking was not too good though - not enough parks for the amount of people staying at the hotel so get in early and walk into town which is a short walk. the views of the lake were beautiful from the front of the hotel - a nice way to walk to town centre.

Excellent hotel and location perfect. Wish we stayed longer. B&B excellent. Restaurants a short walk away. Recommend the Olive Tree for NZ Blue Cod Dinner.

Nice hotel across the road from

Nice hotel across the road from the beautiful lake and we were fortunate to have a room with a partial lake view which was nice. Short walk to town centre to restaurants and shops. Ample parking available. Lovely location and would recommend to those passing through wanting good clean accommodation.
