    Such a great little property. Recently refurbished and excellent facilities. Large rooms with so much space. A short 5 minute walk through the park to town centre. Nigel was very welcoming and provided great recommendations for activities and restaurants.

    Mary was fantastic in helping organise our trip out to Te Anau and day cruise. The motel was very centrally located and close to the main township.

    Highly recommended for family holiday home

    Amazing short stay, too bad it is only for a day. If I'm back in town would definitely stay here again. Very suitable for relaxing vacation. Parking space is available in the premises. I didn't have chance to try out the breakfast but it is $13 for toast if booked by 7pm and delivered the same night.
