We selected this property for our 3 week New Zealand vacation based upon Trip Advisor reviews and price—trying to find the “sweet spot”. We held all our reviews until the end of the trip in hopes of reasonable comparisons across the country, factoring in the standards we found typical in New Zealand (for example, free, unlimited internet is not the norm as it generally is in the US).
This is one of the few chain hotels we stayed in during our 3 week trip to NZ. We stayed at Luxmore based upon Trip Advisor reviews and price. In our opinion, it is not worth the premium to stay “on the lake” since Luxmore is one block away. If you can walk, you can enjoy the views for free. There’s also a very humble pub (The Moose) where you can take in the view for a modestly priced pint.
The hotel is fine, yet nothing special. Clean and comfortable, albeit a tad dated, it’s probably about as good as Te Anua has to offer. They cater to many tour buses, although that did not impact our stay at all. In fact, we checked in just as bus arrived and the manager was very conscientious about checking us in promptly.
The internet is free, but only available in the lobby. It met our casual needs, but was
unstable—meaning the signal was lost somewhat often. It would not be great for business users.
