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. Steve and Felicity were great hosts and very helpful, and the property is only a short walk into the town...

We were in the Lake Front family room upstairs, the other rooms are all down the back so not sure if they have a view. We were very happy with this room, beautiful view of lake directly over the road, very large, spacious and comfortable unit with everything you could possibly need.

We stayed for one night. Comfy rooms, friendly staff, ideal location, fantastic view. Having a kitchenette is an added bonus as we hadn't had access to one at the other motels we stayed in along our journey. Walking distance to the shops and restaurants. We would come back for sure!

Stayed 2 nights at Edgewater. Great location and friendly staff. Deco was dated and tired but the rooms were clean at least. I can see there's renovation going on in a few of the rooms so you'd expect the rooms would get better. Be patient if you use the kitchen as the stove heats up really slow.

We had a couple of nights here when visiting Milford Sound. While there is no view of the lake in the room we stayed in, the motel is centrally located, the room was clean and recently refurbished and Stephen at reception was wonderfully helpful. The room was fully self contained which helped keep down costs. Would definitely recommend.

We felt very fortunate to stay in a newly decorated unit for 5 nights. Very comfortable and spacious and in immaculate condition. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Location was also great - just a short walk to the lake and the town centre. And the weather was perfect too. Had a lovely time. Worth noting that only 2...

Was looking for something cheaper but more private than back packers. Had first room in drive room no 14. Room clean, sheets crisp and clean towels white and fluffy! It's a separate room with lounge and little kitchenette and table for breakfast. Single bed in this room with TV. Bedroom with queen and little bathroom with shower. Outdoor chairs on...

I'm always about water views when available which is why after researching all the Te Anau accommodation I booked the Edgewater's sole lakefront unit. At the front of the motel with private balcony. Main bedroom looks out onto the lake. Two singles in other bedroom and shared bathroom was perfect for the family. The place is nothing flash but is...
