... the warm and helpful welcome from our hosts, the ease of parking, the spacious, clean and comfortable rooms, its proximity to the lake, the ease of access to the town centre, the immaculate daily servicing of our rooms, the free and very reliable wifi access.

Comfortable, large rooms. Very clean. The owner was very friendly and gave us some good information. Just a short walk to the lake. Also within walking distance to shops and good restaurants. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed here for two nights while exploring Milford Sound, and was not disappointed. The room we had booked was large, comfortable, and clean. We had a separate bedroom, and a single bed in the lounge area. We had a kitchen, which had a microwave which came in handy as our trip to Milford Sound was rainy, and freezing so we...

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the Fiordland area. The owners are lovely and more than willing to help with suggestions of where to go and what to see during our time. The rooms are clean and tidy with a mini fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle. Perfect for us as we usually just have a light breakfast while...

Nice place and excellent owners- we started to drive to Milford Sound but while crossing Te Anau, thought of checking with the Motel if we could make an early check-in at 10am. Usual check-in time is 2pm all over NZ, but the owners were too accomodative to allow us to check in in one of 3 rooms booked for us....

Stayed here for two night as a base to travel to Milford sound, nice town and simple but clean motel. The was a bit old and was a little loud. The roof faced west and got a bit of afternoon sun, which is quite hot until about 8pm.

The hotel was layed back and fine... good facility, location, and beautiful area of NZ. The staff was a bit grumpy, but maybe a long working day?... enjoyed stay but probably won't do extended trip in the area.

Normal Motel, normal setup, normal service, normal situation, but unfortunatelly unjustified high price. We could not find anything special about this place. Nothing was bad but the price was just too much for what you get.

We recently enjoyed 10 days holiday in Te Anau at the very comfortable Arran Motel. The one bed apartments are large and well cared for. The owners were friendly and very helpful. This is a well maintained motel and I have no problem recommending the Arran to my friends and family.

A very clean and tidy motel in a great position. Close to town with great views of mountains and lakes. Decor is a little dated, especially the furniture and bedspreads. Lounge was very uncomfortable and didn't really accommodate 4 people. Big bathroom with great shower but a bit squishy when using the toilet. Very friendly and welcoming staff who made...
