Parklands Motel
Ranked #17 of 22 Hotels in Te Anau
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 February 2012

My family and I stayed at the hotel for one night. We really enjoyed it. The kitchen was fully equipped. There was a botanical garden opposite the hotel. I ask you to remember that there are not any petrol stations between Te Anau and Milford Sound. Do not forget to fill full tank.

We stayed at the Parklands Motel for two nights as a base when visiting Milford Sound. It was recommended by the iSite and we went ahead without reading any reviews or seeing photos.
It seems they are doing up the Parklands and at first we though we were in one of the older units but I think that although they're doing it up, they're keeping it retro. Having said this, our room was fine at the price. Clean, warm, comfortable.
The shared kitchen space was excellent - very clean, with ample crockery, cutlery and new pots and pans. We were happy to cook all our meals here so saved a fortune! Staff really pleasant - I was in seeing them with questions a few times and really helpful - particularly the young girl (possibly the daughter?!!)

Parklands is a basic but very comfortable motel with ample facilities including a great communal kitchen with everything provided and a guest laundry. We used Parklands as our base on a visit to Doubtful Sound and found it met our needs perfectly. It is quiet and well run and has good parking and plenty of open space.

Room Tip: Our room was on a corner and very quiet. All rooms are set well back from the quiet streets.

Stayed for 3 nights while exploring Fiordland (recommend staying in Te Anau, midway between Milford and Doubtful Sounds), and enjoyed a lot the big, newly refurbished, complete and clean room (with kitchen facilities) and private bathroom. Very friendly family staff, with that strong, difficult-to-understand kiwi accent that we came to love.

Room Tip: We booked in advance, and being more than 2 nights, we got a special deal.

Stayed for just 1 night as a base to visit Milford Sound.
The good:
Room - Stayed in the studio unit ensuite with 1 double and a single bed which was located on ground floor units. The room was simple, with basic kitchen (microwave, heater, mugs and plates) but adequate. The pillows and beds were comfy. The heater in the room make the room mild and comfortable during the cold autumn night. There was ample parking space and the host allowed us to park our car right in front of our room. There was also laundry and iron facilities.

The bad:
Service - We remembered emailing the host earlier during booking that we need to check in the room (put our luggage) early in the morning because we are taking the early Milford bus tour. But when we reached the motel, they were in the middle of cleaning our room from last night guest. My friend asked to use the toilet of our room but the male host made a face (even though he permit). He also made a remark that we sort of bringing the bad weather to Te Anau :(

Overall stay was comfortable for the price we paid. Maybe the host could improve more on their service.
