We really liked our stay at the Edgewater. It is located close to downtown which we found perfect as we would walk to wherever we wanted to go i town and it was on the waterfront so it was easy to walk the path along the shore. We had a unit with an ensuite bath and kitchenette. The room was...

I booked a two bedroomed apartment at the Edgewater Motel last week on our way back to Queenstown from Milford Sound. We arrived a little late and the lady had emailed the night before and said she would wait for us to arrive, that she did and I got a very warm welcome. We were so impressed with our apartment;...

The motel is on the main road along the shore of Lake Te Anau which is NZ's second-largest lake. It takes only a few steps to the lake shore to enjoy the beautiful view! Only a short walk to the town centre, where you find several tour operators, supermarkets, a petrol station, a cinema and different kinds of restaurants, like...

Kia Ora My friends and I are back in the states and missing your beautiful country. We had a superlative vacation with the perfect blend of activities and sight seeing. Our stay in Te Anau was lovely. The place you own is more than comfortable and your generous- hearted hospitality made us feel both welcome and relaxed. We wish you...

Stayed four nights here: very satisfactory. We booked a room with a garden view and you could see a garden except there were cars parked on the grass or in front of it. No matter, the whole of Te Anau is a few steps away and we were very happy with the room which had been upgraded to a very...

Have stayed here before and the views are spectacular. Accomadation is very good and convenient to the town where there are all the facilities you require including a petrol station as there is no fuel between here and Milford Sound.

We had previously stayed in a cramped resort and were delighted with this place. It is located opposite the lake and is easy walking distance to the centre of town. The staff were happy and welcoming and nothing was a problem. We had a sitting room with kitchenette (fridge, 2 electric elements, microwave and sink), separate bathroom and bedroom. The...

The motel is in a good position being opposite the lake and only a few minutes walk to restaurants and bars. If you want a full lake view you need the front family units but I had a side unit, luckily the first one and so had a slight view down the drive of the lake. The room was large...

We stayed in the Lake Front Family suite in early January for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room is upstairs and has a nice balcony overlooking the lake and is roomy enough for a family of 4.
