Great location close to shops , restaurants and the lake . The owner was lovely and gave me lots of great tips for restaurants and tours . It was handy to have a microwave , fridge and kettle available in the compact queen room. The room was small but adequate for 2 people for a 2 night stay . A... More

The most comprehensive and helpful check in. Very informative. Room as per the description. Perfect location for glowworm trip and town. Only suggestion would be to have the heaters a bit higher before guests arrive in the winter. Highly recommended.

Warm modern stylish room, friendly conscience service. Owner went the extra mile accommodate us; we thought we'd booked room with a bath for our sore snowboarding muscles but turned out we hadn't. Owner upgraded us at a discounted rate. She also recommend to is what turned out to be an excellent restaurant.

We didn't have much expectation of the town but chose this decent looking motel accomodation in the end. We definitely didn't regret. The owners paid good attention to detail for our booking. Out of the 20 hotels and several luxury accomodations, this was the only place that had a nice touch to welcome us as we were on our honeymoon!... More

Great price for the area / region, and also clean, warm, and comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff, and would be happy to stay there again. An excellent choice for quaint Te Anau, and also close to the lake and center, and a good option for a base while visiting Milford Sound.

We had a ground level room with a king bed and spa bath which is more suitable for one person at a time as taps in the wrong place..
