Convenient location. Walking distance to stores, pubs, etc. My flight was delayed so I was late by a few hours driving into Te Anau. However, they waited past reception hours until I got there. I was also provided with maps of the area and points of interest I may want to stop by on my way to Milford Sound.

We were in one of the queen rooms, and it seemed like it was fairly recently renovated. The bathroom was nice and updated, and the kitchenette had a microwave, fridge, kettle and sink. The TV was pretty big, as was the whole space, which has a sofa as well as a bed. It was very clean, and definitely exceeded our expectations!

I am most impressed with the Parklands Motel. I have stayed here twice on this trip. While all the above are important, Gary and his wife are the main reason to stay here. They have been most helpful. They are outstanding hosts.

Lovely big room so our daughter could crawl around. They set up a portacot with mattress and sheets for us too!! Great location and very clean and tidy. Would absolutely return.

Quiet, within walkable distance to restaurants and lake front. My room has a new heater installed that worked well during our stay (it was cold in the morning). Spacious and quiet. Limited Wifi (I think 500mb?)

Very spacious, convenient hotel - great stay
We were amazed at how large the suite was, lots of room for our luggage and then some. Nice kitchenette. Friendly staff. Only complaint was the WiFi - which was only partially/temporarily usable (but this seems to be common in NZ). Bathroom and entire unit was clean. Very convenient location within walking distance of the shops and restaurants. Appreciated that the staff let us leave our car parked on premises for a few extra hours as we did the glowworm tour. Would definitely recommend.
