Comfortable but tired
The room was large and comfortable but the hotel is ‘tired’ and could use sprucing up. The bathroom is excellent.

Great location right in the center of town, clean and well kept. Staff friendly. Odd building configuration made it confusing getting to and from our room.

Unhappy in Te Anuau -- Distinction Luxmore
We booked the hotel go stay in after we’d seen Milford Sound, two to two-and-half hours away. Our plan was to take the cruise there as does everyone and then drive back and stay in this hotel in Te Anua. However, a problem arose. A bus broke down in the tunnel to the sound blocking traffic for an hour and a half. We missed the cruise - the last of the afternoon - but, while the cruise company agent went over and beyond to help us out, finding us a place to stay that night right in the sound that wasn’t actually a public rental and getting us on their first cruise the next morning, the hotel refused to refund us. The manager said that the road was open so we could drive back over two hours to stay and then I guess get up early and drive back again to Milford Sound the next morning, an itinerary that would have been outrageously difficult and exhausting. Regardless of the fact that the agent from the tour company confirmed the tunnel closure to him, he simply said that the road was open now so he wouldn’t consider a refund. This, to me, represented exactly the opposite of the attitude one expects in the hospitality industry. Instead of accommodating, friendly or even generous, it was nothing but selfish. Fine, the hotel kept our money. And bought this review.

Everything was lovely but the room was too hot with no way to cool it off effectively. They did have a floor fan but was noisy. The windows did open but only partially and once you closed the curtains for darkness it stopped any air flow.

Good location but in need of updating...
Good location but in need of updating - pretty basic - breakfast was ok, probably not really worth the money but good if you have not got the time to go/find elsewhere

Spoiled in T Anau
Very comfortable stay with great attention & service by staff members at check-in, the bar & the restaurant. Great central spot in a wonderful location. Go there & enjoy all the area has to offer and the hospitality.

Wet night in Te anau
It rained all night when we stayed. Stayed in the building whole time we were there. The restuarant was very busy and were told it would be at least 35 minutes before our meals would be ready We ordered and decided to wait in the room. The restuarant rang the room to apologize for the delay and offered us a complementary drink from the bar. The food was really good and didn't get charged for room service. Included breakfast next morning was excellent. Al in all a very good stay. Only criticism is could have done with a couple of chairs in the room. Room and bathroom very upto date however.

Te Anau quickstep
A great location, fast and easy check in with good service and friendly, informative staff. Hotel interior looking a bit tired and dated, but spotlessly clean large room with a beautiful view, sadly it was let down by uncomfortable bed and pillows.

Good 6.0
The room was nice and clean and the breakfast as ordered was fine. The last evening there we had dinner was good. Very quiet due to Covid 19.
