We found this motel management to be pleasant and very accommodating. The rooms were well appointed warm and comfortable. Our party of 12 were all very happy with their units I would have no hesitation in recommending this motel.

Stayed: May 2017, travelled as a couple

Good morning Deanne
Thank you for taking the time to give our motel a review. I am sorry that we were not here on your return stay but am glad that Monique took good care of you. We trust that your group had a great time on your week exploring the Fiordland Coast and thank you for staying with us.
Kind regards

Great welcoming from the staff at Explorer, with local knowledge that came in handy for planning the trip! Clean, comfortable and well equipped, this is perfect for getting up early and getting to Milford Sound!

This place was great. So close to town and the lake. We arrive late after a long drive and a flat tyre. We were welcomed by Mary who gave us tips for dining and exploring, a bottle of milk for tea/coffee/brekky, plus walked us to our room to show us in. The rooms older but perfectly comfortable and clean. The beds very comfortable and the room cosy with a kitchenette. I would definitely stay here again. We stayed here two nights. We dined at Kepler restaurant and the Fat Duck restaurant - both great, will do as separate reviews. I highly recommend this hotel for travellers. Walking distance to lake and town.

We are commencing an upgrade programme having only been here a short time and hope to modernise things. However we do do our utmost to make our guests feel welcome!

My friends and I had just come from hiking the Milford Track. The motel's proximity to down town was very convenient. We stayed in one of the apartments and found it very comfortable and spacious. We opened the sliding glass door and made use of the grassy courtyard to catch a few rays. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The washer a dryer onsite was let. What a great find!

Staff were really friendly and helpful. Room was really clean. It was in need of updating but it was functional and clean which is what you expect for the price. Pillows werent great which didn't provide a good nights sleep
