Distinction Te Anau Hotel And Villas

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were only here for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. We were upgraded to villa with a kitchen and living room, which was great.

Comfortable and the staff was very helpful and friendly.

Stayed in one of the villas and was very spacious and clean. Nice location within walking distance to most of the attractions.

Our room was located right by the stairwell so there was a lot of noise throughout the day and into the evening. The patio was nice. Room did it's job, though dated.

The room was a good fit for what we needed. This was out stop over on the way to the Milford Sound and it worked well. The staff was helpful, the room clean, hot tub warm, location good. Wish we would have had a little more time in Te Anau.

This was a regular hotel. Clean. Did the job. Convenient location.

Good location. Room was fine, but definitely 2 stars at best. Bathroom was poor, small and awkward placement. Room was clean, but small and non-descript. Service staff was not very friendly or particularly helpful compared to other hotels in New Zealand.

We enjoyed the walk-out patio of our ground floor room with a gorgeous lake view. The hotel is within walking distance of most restaurants and shops.

We selected a lake view room which was nice. The hotel is in walking distance to the information area of Milford Sound. The room was average. We had two queen beds which accommodated the four of us (adults). It seemed a little cramped. We did not eat at the hotel or use any of its amenities.

We stayed at this hotel to break up our drive from Queenstown to Milford Sound and it was beautiful. It's right on the lake so we took a nice walk around after we got back from the Sound. It was very convenient and comfortable. The entire stay was very relaxing and serene. And the price was great. We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Te Anau.
