My husband and I spent 3 nights there. The room was very spacious and super clean. The bed was very comfortable. The Motel locates right across the lake and you can walk to the town centre. Highly recommended!

Everything is pricing in TeAnau beacause of Milford Sound. The room here was upstairs so a bit of a slog with luggage. Friendly reception by owners. The room was comfortable and clean but there was no view so I would request that on booking if rebooking. Laundry downstairs was very good. Comfortable but not a standout after 3 weeks in...

My husband and I spent three nights in the hotel. It is situated right across from the lake and offers beautiful views if you get a lake facing room. The room has a fridge, microwave, stove, plates/cups, utensils, pots/pans, french press and an iron with board. The room was clean and comfortable. The location is close to the main street...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. It was clean, well situated and comfortable. It had all the usual mod cons and even a little bottle of milk for you tea/coffee in the mor img. The main stretch was a short walk away and best of all the view was absolutely outstanding. I arrived on a drizzly cold day and I...

The villa met our needs for two nights. Plenty of space, seperate lounge area to the bedroom. The lounge was an odd setup, had to sit at the dining table to watch television, i believe the setup is so extra beds can be setup. A tv in the main bedroom would be a good idea.

This motel is situated right on the lake. The room was spacious and had everything we needed. I was getting in very late and liaising with the manager was easy. They were also very helpful. It's well-positioned, not expensive and I strongly recommend it.

Had a 2 bedroom apartment here with everything we needed, clean, tidy, heaps of room, big kitchen, nice spa bath and a view to die for. Straight across from the lake and short walk into the main street. Close to many restaurants and attractions on the lake.

Clean, (super clean), warm, comfortable and great views. I'm in room 21 and feel I was fortunate to be here. The beds are comfy and the carpet appears fairly new. It's just a shower over the bath however the bath is a spa. I didn't use it but it's nice to have the option. Receptionist was friendly and helpful too....

It's true that you get what you pay for. Rooms are basic but very clean and tidy. Dated, with no water pressure to speak of. Laundry facilities are good on a road trip, but expect to put you drying through 3 cycles before they're ready. The view of the lake is phenomenal though.

Thank Annemarie D
