Lakeside Motel & Apartments


Greg and Jodi Cockburn enjoy sharing their love of Te Anau and Fiordland with visitors to the area. Lakeside Motel & Apartments is located right beside the peaceful, deep waters of Lake Te Anau and offers a wide range of modern accommodation. They offer a selection of units including studio rooms, one, two, or three bedroom apartments, and all the comforts of home.

Creative Brief

Greg and Jodi came to Turboweb because they felt that their previous website lacked punch visually, wasn’t as user-friendly as they wanted, and they just felt it was time for an all-round freshen up.

One thing that absolutely had to be right was finding a way to display all the different room types that Lakeside Motel & Apartments offer and having seamless integration with online booking software; Staah. This was crucial to allow their customers to easily plan and book for their travel from wherever in the world they were, no matter what device they were using.

Custom Development

Turboweb created a customised module in the Administration to easily display their hotel rooms on the Lakeside website. Each room is linked with the Staah Hotel Booking system so that visitors can easily check room availability before booking their stay.


Located in one of the most stunning parts of New Zealand, Greg and Jodi wanted to share their amazing views with their guests, as well as showcase their accommodation and grounds. Turboweb arranged the photography for their website and got some stunning drone footage of Lakeside Motel & Apartments, as well as crisp clear images of the views from each room, and the interior spaces.

When you book your photography through Turboweb, you will own those images yourself and be able use them for any future purpose you wish, such as promotional work, business cards etc. The photography is yours to keep and use.


The Lakeside Motel & Apartments website captures the look and feel of Te Anau, with clear crisp open spaces. The large banner photography allows the location to speak for itself, enticing visitors to click through and explore the region, take a tour of the accommodation, and find out more about what the region has to offer.


The whole process was a breeze.

Turboweb were extremely easy, patient and informative to deal with, right from the initial meeting to the end result. They listened to what we needed and made the necessary changes if something was not how we wanted it.

The whole process was a breeze.

Initially we were worried about the amount of time it would take to set up a new website, but it was done in such a timely manner with little disruption.

We are very pleased with the way the website has turned out, it is a lot fresher, user-friendly and informative. We would definitely recommend Turboweb to other companies.
