This was a nice stop over for Milford sound. The staff were friendly and helpful, it had a very homely vibe and the milk and cupcakes on arrival were a nice touch. It was close to a grocery store and had a fully equipped kitchen.

Lovely stay in te anau, At check in we had lots of explanation on things to see, to do around the area. Plus: Rooms are nice, clean, warm and silent and my wife loved the electric heating for the bed. Min: We rather shower together which is not possible in that shower, however there was plenty of space.

The room is clean but definitely in need of some updating. The room has a kitchen which was a nice feature, however not all the supplies (pots and pans) were serviceable (warped frying pan). The layout was nice to allow a separate sleeping area for the kids. The hot water has to be managed - no back to back showers... More

Some of the place was a bit old, but don't let that put you off. The hospitality was way above any that I've gotten previously. Place was warm and in our case quiet. I wouldn't look at anywhere else when we come back to this area.
