This is the perfect stopping point for Milford Sound. Our room was well presented and very clean. We had children with us and the room was large enough for them to have their own space. The staff were all very nice and overall we had a good stay. We didn't use the restaurant in the hotel but found many cafe's... More

Te Anau is the gateway to visit Millford sound. This hotel room is large, comfortable. 250 MB Wi-Fi is free, available in lobby only. Staff are helpful and courteous. Car parking is easy. The lake is nearby.

I stayed here about 3 years ago and found the rooms quite dated and in need for an upgrade - evidently this time around I stayed in a different block and loved the rooms - but judging by some other comments here some of the "old" rooms are still in existence..

This hotel is a short walk from the lake shore and the centre of this small town which has plenty of restaurants. We had a large clean room although the car park view was unedifying.Service was good despite being very busy with tour buses. The buffet dinner and breakfast were both very good.

We stayed in a standard room that had not been updated -possible ever! The restroom was so gross I didn't want to take off my shoes. The beds linens, light fixtures, carpet and appliances all looked like forgotten relics from the 1970s. I would not stay there again and suggest you look elsewhere as well.

We stayed two seperate nights here. Both rooms were lovely. Clean, comfortable and after staying at milford sound , an absolute pleasure. The hotel was right in the middle of town so we just walked to shops and dinner. Very convenient. Highly recommend this one.
