"one of the best place we stayed at during our trip to nz. were supposed to pass by te anau en route to milford sound on the 12th, before returning back for a night's stay at te anau on the 13th. however, the road to milford sound was closed due to an avalanche and we enquired if they could put us up for an additional night. not only did the friendly receptionist find us a room, she upgraded us to the marakura studio which were brand new units. the rooms were clean, spacious and had a breathtaking view of the lake. the kitchenette was well equipped and came with a microwave and electric hob. complimentary wifi was a big plus and the reception had plenty of information regarding the local attractions/activities. central location and a 5min drive from the town centre. would definitely stay again if we ever return to te anau."

"From Lake Te Anau you can visit the Milford Sounds, which are around 90 minutes drive from Te Anau. On the way you will find so many spot to marvel at, that you should calculate more time than 90 minutes to get there. In Te Anau you should not miss buying "pies" at Miles Better Pies. Their selection is incredible. They are very friendly and chatty as well. There are lots to see and to discover. Next time we will plan a longer stay to go up to the mountains and to walk one the beatiful tracks around Milford. "

"It is a very good choice for staying here in Te Anau. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. It was easy to get everywhere in Te Anau from this hostel. The kitchen in my room was easy to use and the hot water in my bathroom was stable. Much information was available in a pamphlet in my room. Every pick-up service was familiar with here so it was easy to book all trips around. However, the sound-proof was terrible. If some people stayed next to you kept chatting until midnight, you would have to listen to them instead of falling asleep."

"We spent 3 nights in Te Anau, which got us an upgraded room. The hotel caters to 1 night bus tour stays. That said, it was nicer than we expected it to be. Hotel is middle of the road, but clean and comfortable with a good location. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We would stay again if the price was right compared to the competition. We ate dinner in their restaurant, and liked that they have a value menu."

"We decided to stay in Te Anau during the last minute as we felt travelling from Queenstown to Milford Sound was very far. As soon as we landed in queenstown we drove straight to Te Anau. The receptionist and owner Ms. Shona was very welcoming and she helped us with information on where to find food and how to go to the tourist kiosk of Southern discoveries in Te Anau. She also gave us a jar of fresh milk and helped us check in late also. There is ample parking space and they are also upgrading the buildings. Ms.Shona and her husband were amazing people. Will recommend parklands motel to everyone who is driving to Te Anau and need an overnight stay."

"as i was travelling off-season, there were not many people at the Village Inn [or in Te Anau]. but, the staff was lovely, friendly, helpful, pleasant to chat with. i did not mind walking back and forth to 'town'...all of about 2 blocks away, but older folks might have a harder time...most tour / excursions will drop-off / pick-up at hotels... would definitly recommend.
