“View makes the hotel”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

This is the second Distinction hotel we have stay with. The rooms are clean, facility well maintained, yet not really as homey or inviting. The receptionist was friendly enough, but we felt as if we might be interrupting her. The television blared in the lobby with one of the reality shows interfering with the thought process. There appeared to be very few other guest in this moderately sized hotel, given that the least they could do is turn on the heat in rooms set aside for registering guests. If you choose to give this hotel a try, ask for a room with a view of the mountains - that alone made up for any other concern - gorgeous!!!

This is a fabulous hotel right in the centre of the lovely little town of Te Anau. Walk to all the shops and visitors centre. Great & comfortable hotel with a great guest laundry & gym.
We had a special rate when we stayed and it was excellent value for money!!

After reading some online reviews of the hotel it was best value for money. We turned up and asked for a room of the type offered online. We were offered better for a little more but indicated we were on a budget. After being told they did not have any of the cheaper rooms we were offered a free upgrade so stayed for the cheaper price in an upgraded room.
There was a mile of room a queen size bed each and everything was nice and clean.
Free access to Wi-Fi, reasonable laundry fees (a little busy at peak times) and very pleasant and helpful staff.
There are some buses that start up near the North/West wing but not that bad and they were gone fairly quickly.
Stayed 3 nights in all. 1 before Milford Sound then 2 after. Was perfectly located to see the lakes and do some cruises.

Great value accomadation and eating, clean, warm and comfortable. Friendly staff. Great to have a good restaurant in the premise too. Right on the main street of Te Anau, but didnt hear any noise from it at night. Cold outside but nice and warm inside!

My wife and i stayed here initially for one night, then we booked the following night due to a change of plans.( and the $78 per night was well worth it) The staff were friendly and helpful. The place was clean and tidy. Our room was spacious with big beds, chairs and table, fridge, hair dryer and toilet and shower.
We only have 2 minor issues, and that is the shower curtain that keeps trying to wrap itself around you while showering and lack of car parks. Very minor things, but they won't stop us from staying here again
The hotel has its own bar/restaurant but we did not eat here, and the location is right in town, a minutes walk to the lake or shops.We used this hotel as a launch pad to Milford Sound (about a 2 hour drive away)
This is our second stay here over 5 years and we would stay here again if in the area.

I stayed at this hotel for two days. The location is superb - right in the centre of the town. Hotels, grocery and other stores just across the street. Room was clean. Bathroom nicely finished. Staff very helpful.

Room Tip: Check if they have fixed access points on the upper floors for internet access.
