I chose this motel based on the good reviews on tripadvisor, although the photos made me a little unsure of my choice. I'm so glad I did as it was a really lovely room and I think that the photos don't do it justice. It is older in style but this gave it a certain charm as it was very...

The Alpenhorn is a great place to stay in Te Anau, very close to the main street and the lake side, with friendly and accomodating owners, very reasonable prices and clean rooms. They also let us use their BBQ as we were tired from our trip and didn't fancy going out. Couldn't recommend it more.

No fuss motel which was just what we needed. Rooms were clean, tidy and well maintained. Older style but well kept which was great. It was quiet but only a short walk to town which was handy. Thermostat worked well which kept our room warm and toasty. Kitchenette was just what we needed to get breakfast going. Beds were comfortable...

This motel has everything to be a nice and pleasant motel : simple, but clean, with a small kitchen, a little piece of garden on the front, a really nice welcoming from the owner etc. Our only and small black spot was the cleaning : no cleaning at all has be done during our stay. It was written that beds...

We stayed here for two nights, and used it as our jump-off point for Milford Sound. Tony and Denise were very helpful in booking our Milford Sound cruise, and recommended a time to go. The kitchenette was functional, we used it to cook our dinner that we bought at a nearby grocery store. Would definitely recommend.

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...
