Great choice in Te Anau
The manager here was super helpful and very friendly. She was a very hard worker and continually made sure our stay was good. She even made a point to remember our names. Our room was very large with a couch by the television. There was a kitchen area and a small table for eating. And a sliding door to the back courtyard was a real bonus. The outside clothes line also came in handy. Te Anau is a very small town, so everything is in walking distance.

Lovely quiet spot 2min walk to the lake, 10 min to town centre. Apartment was super and had everything you needed. Only downside was the roof window in the 2nd bedroom couldn't be shaded. Reception staff were very helpfull with trips etc.
