What's not to like about Edgewater Motel and Te Anau? We were the only residents for our 3 night stay so was very quiet but very relaxing. The unit was well equiped, warm and clean.

Comfortable and friendly
This was such a lovely motel that had style and comfort. No lake view from room but a 30 second walk to the lake. There was a wonderful garden with a lounge suite under the trees, pure luxury

On arrival, looked like an old 1960/70's motel, but had been completely refurbished inside. Great bathroom. Straight across from the lake and short walk to town center. Would stay again.

A Solid stay in an older style Motel
Room # 12 - 2 x Night Stay As for Value for money - I think it was fair. Motel room had been recently painted so looked presentable. Underneath it is still an old Motel, and has not been modernised. No Mixer Taps, old Style Metal Kiwi shower box etc We moved the Heater in the bedroom and much Fluff and Dust underneath - so cleaners need to do a better job!! It was SO Quiet at night - Awesome. Very convenient to get to Milford Sound Crusies. Also situated right next to Lake Te Anau and 2 minute drive to Town Centre We ate at The Ranch in town and although a little expensive, portions were massive and expertly cooked. If back in the area we would stay here again.

Our best find on this trip!
This is a really great hotel. Really good amenities. Lovely man running it. Everything feels new. Perfect location - 6 min walk (along waterfront) to everything. Room at top front has incredible view and is spacious. We also had a room at ground level towards back, and it was great too. Spacious, clean and great. I am very fussy, and this has been our best find on this trip.
