Kingsgate Hotel Te Anau

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Outstanding hotel with a very helpful and caring staff. Jill at the front desk was especially helpful in recommendations of restaurants, and in booking activities for us. The dining room at the hotel was very good for both dinner and for breakfast. Te Anau is a good place to stay while exploring Milford Sound and environs.

This hotel sits on Lake Te Anau and does offer rooms with some views. The breakfast was just ok, basic buffet food in warmers, nothing fantastic. The mattresses were pretty old and sunk in the middle. No air conditioning but open windows kept the room cool. The bathrooms were nice and had been upgraded. This hotel worked for the one night stop over but we wouldn't have wanted to stay longer.

It is one of the motels in Te Anau you can stay at if you are on your way to the Milford Sound.Not better or worse than the others,average ,clean priced OK not a place you would want to stay several days for vacations.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Very convenient if you plan visiting Fiordlands national park. (The Kepler track is within 5 min drive from the hotel.) The hotel has a decent restaurant but the breakfast is pricy (23 NZD). The view from the restaurant onto the Te Anue lake is fantastic. The room was clean, had a small fridge and small table. The only annoying thing is that "free" WiFi is only for 20 minutes a day and works only at the lobby of the hotel, but this seems to be a common deal in New Zealand.

Good Hotel, friendly staff, excellent location, recomended to all
