We goofed here a bit. Hotel fine, good location, upgraded room fine. Coach trip to Milford Sound OK, if lengthy. Boat trip ruined by pushing, shoving Japanese tourists with cameras on selfish sticks etc...really poor manners...gave up...suggest, don't stay in Te Anau but Queenstown & fly over Cook & Milford? But then, found an ace Italian resto...which redeemed Te Anau...a...

After a long travelling to Milford Sound and back, you don't need much from a hotel. Unfortunately, the room was pretty run down, particularly the plumbing. Just about anyone taking a shower would wake you up with the pipes rumbling. Top that off with an unsolicited 6am wake up call. But the shower was good and the sheets were nice...

Fantastic and comfortable room. Receptionists on front desk wonderfully helpful - helping out with suggestions of local restaurants/bars that might suit us plus really helped when i couldnt log into the wifi system at the reception area. Very clean, presentable, pretty noise proof rooms. Buffet breakfast was very plentiful and waitresses lovely. Bathroom had a great shower.

This room was clean and perfectly comfortable however the walls were very thin meaning we could hear the noises from the guests in the room next to us. The plumbing was also very noisy meaning when the room above us had a shower we could hear the plumbing pipes in our room. It's what I consider a standard motel room...

Distinction Luxmore is conveniently located in Te Anau's Town Centre. It's steps away from the Intercity bus stop, close to restaurants, shops, tour operators, including the Real Journeys office and the dock for boats leaving for the glow worm cave. My room was spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable with mini fridge and tea kettle. The hotel is in need of...

Very hot room with an overpowering air freshener smell (like a cheap pine tree for a car). Hard bed. Unable to do an early breakfast.
