We booked a 3 bedroom apartment and were surprised upon arrival to be directed to a house down the street . The hotel is situated in an area close to the town . Lots of other hotels nearby. Very quiet the majority of the time except when there were big coaches picking up and dropping off guests. e.g: very early... More

It was bitterly cold when we arrived in Te Anau, but our apartment was a welcome and warm spot. We had one of the spa suites, which is a spacious room with a stocked kitchenette and the best corner spa unit. The room had plenty of heating, even the bathroom floor I think, the tiles were never cold anyway. It... More

We arrived on a cold early winter evening and were met with friendly advice and a toasty warm room. It feels like the owners went the extra mile. The little things like linen being fresh and clean, natural soaps, bathrobes to mention just a few things made us feel like we weren't just in any motel room. We felt cared... More

Comfortable bed, full kitchenette, jet tubs in the bathroom, two heaters in the room! Could stay here for weeks as it has everything you need! Short walk/drive to the town center. Very quiet area! Very friendly staff who extended our stay in a pinch when we decided a day kayaking trip and driving to Queenstown in the same day was... More

The city of Te Anau is pretty spectacular and unusual by European standards. This property is located in close to the center of the city and to the lake. It looks modern and has all the amenities of a modern motel. Dedicated parking places are a plus, and the owners were really nice during our short interactions. Great place to... More

Wonderfully clean & friendly motel. The bed was very comfy & everything welcoming. We had 2 nights here & did a bus & cruise trip into Milford Sound. Easy stroll into town. Highly recommend the Redcliff Cafe & Bar for dinner if you want to be spoilt.

The Anchorage Motel was absolutely adequate but not exciting. The place is showing its age, but was spacious and clean. We were there 2 nights but had to change rooms for the second night. This was not a problem as the management moved our luggage while we were gone for the day, a nice bonus. It was quiet and had... More

Electric blanket, large rooms, two TVs, renovated bathroom. However, smelled like garlic and onions when we arrived due to previous guests. Cheap towels. Duvet cover on bed - these are outdated and unhygienic.
