This was a decent size room, with sliding glass doors so there was a lot of light. There was a small fridge ad an electric kettle in the room, but there was also a large kitchen available to guests as well as a BBQ, so you could cook a large meal if you wanted to. The community kitchen had a...

We booked 2 nights online on Booked.com website. We arrived and the owner (woman) gave us a completely different room from the room on the website. Its the only reason why we booked our accommodation there its because we liked the look of the room showed on the website. The owner (woman) was not willing or interested to help us....

Stayed here for one night on the way to milford sounds. So cheap. And accommodation was clean and very large rooms. Great new bathrooms. Close to town and the lake. The owner was so friendly and was happy to help out with ideas where to eat. Would definitely stat here again. Very impressed.

We stayed for one night before starting the Kepler track. We were impressed with the quality of the room for the price we paid. The mini kitchen (microwave, kettle, basin, fridge) was very useful for us as we were heading out early that morning. The location is great (although Te Anau is not a big place, so I imagine most...

Step back into the '60's in this motel. But the rooms are large, beds are comfortable, and check in is easy. The rooms are large and some have a kitchen. Abundant parking and within walking distance to down town Te Anau. And, the Price is Right!

I loved our stay at the Parklands Motel. Te Anau is a magical place, and the Parklands Motel really helped make our stay wonderful. The rooms are compact but not cramped. The bed was comfortable, the couch in the room comfortable, and the bathroom well appointed. The shared laundry helped us ensure that we had all the clean clothes we...

We were on the last leg of our 3 1/2 week tour of New Zealand staying in airbnb's and budget motels. We were very impressed with Parklands. Our room was spacious, a nice kitchen, common area with TV and separate bedroom. It was cleaned daily and fresh bedding which we did not expect. The kitchen was well equipped. Location is...

I first visited (and reviewed) Parklands in Nov 2011, saying that if I returned to Te Anau, I would stay at Parklands again. Well, I am back and once again chose Parklands. It has certainly changed significantly in the last 6 years - and all for the better. In 2011, Parklands hit the mark and was well worth staying at....
