          Great Place to Stay ”
          We stayed for one night on our trip through the South Island of New Zealand. The proprietor Mary was so very helpful in giving us tips on what to do, where to eat and when to leave for Milford Sound. The accommodations were clean and the room very large with a splendid view of the park. Close to everything in Te Anau.

          Every aspect of our stay was great, from very friendly and helpful staff, excellent room facilities, and a view out to a garden. It is not on the lake but it is only a short walk, and the town centre is the same.

          We had 4 adults in unit 18 and could not get over the large space that we had to spread out! From the moment we checked in and the owner/manager (?) chatted with me about activity options, to when we had to leave after two great nights in Fiordland, we loved this motel. Would highly recommend to a family looking for quiet and space. Within walking distance of anything you need in town.
