Plenty of off road parking, arrived early but greeted by a charming young man who said room was ready and we had been upgraded as they had a chinese bus tour in and it would be quieter which it was. Large two double bedded very clean and lovely side view of the mountains. Unfortunately wanted to eat in the Hilights...

Hotel is well located in Te Anau near to promenade. Good room, comfy bed, ok tv (limited channels), comfy bed and good shower. The buffet offered a pretty good selection of food and breakfast likewise. This hotel is largely used by coaches but nonetheless can cope with high volumes of guests.

This place is huge and full of overseas tourists, but is managed quite well. The wifi is pretty crappy though and the breakfast is nothing much. If you like tin fruit instead of fresh fruit then you'll be ok, although the coffee wasn't too good either. If you like a hot breakfast you'll be sweet. Rooms were tidy and quiet...

Stayed here a few times now and it is a good starting point for the trip up to Milford Sound (which incidentally takes longer than you would think - allow two hours). Real Journeys office is just a short walk away towards and beside the lake so get it booked. Unforgettable experience even on a rainy day! Ah yes back...

Sad to say our room smelt of cigarettes what a shame absolute killer. High season no other room available. Desperate. The room itself was reasonable in a functional & average sort of way but they need to raise their game.

Room was clean and large, staff was very friendly and helpful. Would return. (Sometimes they seem to give bigger rooms for lower prices... psst.. do not tell others ;-) ) there is also the option for having a big buffet in the restaurant, but we didn't tried it.

The Distinction Luxemore is located in clise proximity to town amenities. We booked two rooms which were both spacious for our group. Clean towels everyday. Our rooms were also cleaned daily. Two restaurants in the hotel. One buffet and the other a la carte. Buffet was a bit ordinary. We opted for a la carte which was ok. Guest laundry...

The Distinction Luxmore is one of the largest hotels in Te Anau and may be a bit dated by International standards but has everything you want from a hotel. We had a superior room which had two queen beds and so plenty of room. There is an adjoining restaurant for breakfasts and dinners which is not fine dining but good...

This hotel was priced as a 3 star but gave you a 4 star feel. It's located in the middle of the town for shops and restaurants. There are 2 restaurants in hotel that are very good to eat at. The room was clean, the service was great, and the location was perfect.
