3 of us had a Family unit for 2 nights as we needed 3 beds ! Very surprised at the spacious unit which had everything we needed. Very comfortable, clean, close to everything - the lakefront, town centre . A lovely small, very friendly motel ( plus a very friendly dog!!) and would certainly stay there again.

Friendly and helpful staff with good info on walks and the rooms were light and spacious and quite large. It's around a ten min walk to town and there was a nice garden outside our room. Would stay there again.

Always hard booking somewhere to stay when you haven't been to the town before. Was absolutely delighted with this motel though, ok it isn't the flashest but you are not paying flash prices either. The bed was super comfy, the unit had everything we needed and we were happy here. Tony the host was such a happy man and nothing...

We stayed one week at Denise's and Tony's motel and enjoyed every minute of it. The location is perfect: very close to the town centre, DOC and lake and yet very quiet. Tony gave us plenty of very useful tips and was always available for any requests, a chat and jokes. Te Anau is perfectly located to explore the many...

Alpenhorn. Motel is not directly on the lake, but nearby. It's a quiet typical motel, cars are parked in front of the room, and a nice small patio is in the back. We did the Glowworm tour, and we drove to Milford Sound the second day. The owner managed our boat trip in advance.

This little lodge was a perfect stay in Te Anau. Service was incredibly helpful and friendly, and the rooms very clean with free unlimited wifi. The patio area is open and perfect to sit out for morning breakfast (which you can cook in the room's kitchen!). The downtown area is less than a minute drive, and this makes for a...

Although the motel was just an average class, it was Ok and we have no adverse remarks to make. However, it was a short drive to the town centre and an abundance of restaurants. Our host, Tony Austin was really friendly and helpful and assisted us with one of our bookings that we had problems with. The Motel is Ok...

As typical backpackers, we usually dont stay at places like this, but after completing Kepler Track, we wanted somthing a bit fancier. Great quiet location, though still in the center, nice furniture, kettle, microwave, electrical pan/oven, TV, free wifi, laundry ($2), small heater. For us really worth the money (and still it was one ofthe cheapest available), plus very kind...

Tony made us very welcome and we were sorry we had already booked our trips in Te Anau as he had plenty of helpful advice to give us. The room was a good size with a parking space allocated to each room and a garden area with table and chairs at the back-very nice...pity we couldn't use it as it...

We stayed for 4 nights to explore Fiordland. Great place to stay on a quiet street but still conveniently located some 5-10 min walk to the town centre for shops and restaurants. The motel was very clean, comfortable and provided all facilities one would need. The bed was one of the most comfortable and, combined with the peaceful location, made...
