Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms with comfy beds. Location is very convenient, close to city centre and the lake. Stayed here for two nights on Dec 31-Jan 1. Perfect location to stay as we drove to Milford Sound first day and took the Doubtful Sound cruise from nearby Lake Manapouri.

Very welcoming and helpful staff with great local knowledge. Clean, sunny and spacious 1-bedroom unit. Very handy to the DOC Centre for those catching buses to the Great Walks and just a short stroll into town along the lakefront

We really enjoyed our stay at the Arran motel. For an older place that's been recently been updated, it had all the comforts we needed. It's clean to a tee and you can tell that the owners put a lot of care in to running this place well. We'd definitely stay again and highly recommend.

Great location in Te Anau. Very helpful hosts. The studio unit we had was very clean, very comfortable bed and good bathroom. Studio unit only had microwave for cooking and jug and toaster but enough plates and glasses etc. We would recommend Arran motel and will stay here again when back in Te Anau

Very clean room. Good size and offered cooking facilities. Not on main road so quiet. Close enough to main street of town. Helpful owner. Heater on thermostat in main room, no heater in bedroom but electric blankets. Not many TV channels to chose from if you love your TV. Would stay again

Cosy room. Staff made a special effort to ensure room was nice and warm for us as it was a chilly night. We didn't book ahead but they staff were quickly able to assemble a rollaway bed to accommodate all our family. Very comfy beds

We (2 adults, 12 and 10 yr old) stayed in a two bedroom unit for two nights that was massive and warm. The location is central, owners friendly and it's very modern. Wi-Fi signal was a bit weak but everything else was excellent including the laundry. Def. recommend staying here.

Nice and cozy motel with excellent service & hospitality. Certainly made it a pleasant stay here. Lot's of pubs and spa nearby. Easy parking and great view of the mountains. Truly heaven for the price paid.

Very clean, spacious, comfortable and with a great shower (we'd come straight from finishing walking the Routeburn Track so the wet-room shower was particularly welcome). The owners were very obliging and their advice on where to eat in the town proved to be spot on.

Thank Jimmy C
