Dated hotel with all basics,tv, parking outside the unit, tea and coffee making facilities, fridge and private bathroom. Good location for visiting Milford Sound as the coach pick up is from the same street.

The owner has a great sense of humour, he is however a dedicated professional, and you will not regret staying here.

We had a single room unit that had a very large main room with another bed, bed settee kitchen, tv etc. Feels recently refurbished. We didn't need heating but it was available if required. Great shower pressure. Very quiet. Good 10 minute walk, with great views of the lake, to the main part of Te Anau for restaurants and shops....

Our stay at Arran Motel was very comfortable and included everything we needed. We were heading for a day trip at Milford Sound and this was the perfect accommodation for anyone heading down there. Really enjoyed our stay! Thank you Arran Motel.
