Te Anau is a really pretty place in its own right (apart from being a staging point for excursions to Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound). The Discovery Luxmore is very well located and the lake and other places in town are all within walking distance. But far more important is that the rooms are large, comfortable and excellently maintained. And even more than that is that the staff are really a pleasure to deal with. Kevin was very helpful with advice and even helped to get us booking in the next destination to which we were driving after our stay in Te Ananu. Fernando was always very efficient and all requests were met with a warm welcoming smile. The staff at the restaurant were also delightful to deal with and a special mention of Elizabeth who was really hospitable - her advice regarding the choice of red wine was helpful. In sum the people at the Discovery Luxmore match the sparkling delight of Te Ananu itself.

We stayed 1 nights at the distinction Luxmore, in a newly renovated room.

The room was very clean and modern and the bathroom is really well done. Nice fixtures and a huge spa and separate shower.

Staff were very friendly and the included cooked to order breakfast was huge and quiet nice.

The hotel had no problem storing our luggage after check out while we did an overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound.

Lots of parking in and around the hotel and a few decent restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Try a newly renovated room. Very modern with huge bathrooms.

Stayed here for two nights on a trip around the South Island. This hotel is good. It isn't outstanding but is clean and comfortable.Phone reception within the building was very bad and you can only get wifi in reception and even then it isn't full bars. The receptionists weren't overly friendly or helpful but were nice enough.This hotel is in a great location which definitely helps. Overal this hotel is good...it is just a standard basic hotel

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!!
