Room was okay, but very worn. Curtains hardly covered the windows for privacy. Hand towel rail fell off the wall every time we used the towel. Loo was wobbly and the tap in the basin spun round! Could do with some love. Ok stay.

I stayed in a two-bedroom apartment at the Anchorage with my family of 5. We were all very impressed by how well everything had been maintained and by the main small touches that made a difference to the overall stay, including heating (and floor heating in the bathroom!), plenty of towels and toiletries, a kitchenette with mini stove, hot plates and fridge, plus cooking utensils and everything you need to self-cater. It was also very clean, which made a big difference.

We booked in a busy season and not a lot available to be honest and to be honest most of the low to mid ranged accommodation looks very dated. However we were very pleasantly surprised we got the spa room and the spa was great after a long day of walking around. The heated floor and heat pump gave a great environment to anyone. I felt the bed and pillows were comfy and the room it self was very clean and tidy. My only concern was the tv is very old and plasma meaning the reflection when the sun was on it was in watchable however feel mean for de marking someone on that. For the price it's good but I do think it needs a little re vamp. New tv's and some furnishings, however the price is alright considering the price and location of te anau. Would recommend it.

Family of 5 stayed two nights, plenty of room self contained, cooking our dinner each night. For some reason the layout of the 2 bedder really worked for us, we really enjoyed the stay & would recommend

We stayed for 2 nights in the 1 bedroom budget accomodation, perfect for the travel to Milford sound.It was the cheapest accommodation we could find, so much was booked out. It was a good choice - away from all the other accomodation it was quiet and the hotels around us seemed to be packed with tourists and buses coming and going. It is older and as they say budget, the stove only seems to go flat out the fridge froze a few of our items and outside lights didn't work. The unit though was very clean had plenty of towels with the heated towel rack on, on arrival. Plenty of toiletries, tea, plunger coffee, hot chocolate fresh milk and cookies. Just a short walk from the lake. We enjoyed spending an afternoon evening walking around the lake and town, happy hour at the pub in the cinemas great beer on tap for $5.50. We thought this was a beautiful spot to stay the town has catered well for tourists without the feeling it is being trampled to death like Lake Tekapo felt.

Anchorage Motel apartments / Te Anau Good functional modern motel on the fringe of the Township. Te Anau is the jumping Point to Mitford Sound therefore in the season it is in demand and pricey its location on the lake makes it a good stop. Also it has a couple of good restaurants and cafes in town. I would recommend it as a one night stop.

We stayed here two nights, although the initial impression was that the hotel was dated, it is very clean, neat and tidy with quality doors and windows. The interior is very nice and well maintained, with heated floor in the bathroom, air conditioning, satellite TV. I would have no problems recommending this motel to anyone.

We were very impressed with our stay. Very clean & comfortable. Heated towel rack! Beds were great. Easy walk to the main street & shops. Nigel in reception was very helpful - organising a change in tour for us (much appreciated - the change was great!)

Took 2 bedrooms cottage. Nice and comfortable rooms with each room having own tv too. Decent place to spend few nights. Very near to city center; hardly 5 mins by car and famous te anau lake. Overall good place to live and well recommended

The rooms were very disappointing and in need of complete renovation. A very uncomfortable place with old beds and furniture the were clearly long past their sell by date. Tiny bathroom area and a general feeling of grubbiness all round.
