To be fair there is nothing wrong about this hotel but very little of it felt right to me. The location is superb in that there are lots of places to eat nearby and the lake is 30 seconds away. Supermarket just across the road as well. The room itself is very dated and the beds and pillows have definitely...

This hotel was set back from the Lake on the main street. The rooms were very spacious with particularly good internet access. The bathroom had an over bath shower which was a little stiff to use. There was an iron, ironing board, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities.The buffet dinner and breakfast provided an extensive choice. I ordered sandwiches...

We recently stayed here for two nights while exploring Fjordlands. We had spent all of our time in wonderful bed and breakfasts up to this point and preferred to stay in a B & B in Te Anau but couldn't find anything available. We reluctantly booked at the Luxmore. We were pleasantly surprised! Very clean, spacious, comfortable accommodations right in...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, to allow us easier access to Milford Sound. Te Anau was a beautiful little town, with the hotel perfectly located a stone's throw from the lake, next to the little shops and restaurants. The room was basic which fitted our budget, but had everything we needed including tea and coffee. It wasn't...

Usual hotel in one horse town near lake. Quite basic accommodation but very comfortable, nice atmosphere. Buffet meal at night varied home cooking with carvery, lovely. Breakfast fine but no facility to make toast so it was cold.

Our first visit was two days ago, and we were given very nice rooms (212, 214). After an amazing overnight on Doubtful Sound, we are back for a second night. Oh dear! Given rooms in a different wing (255, 251) which can best be described as decorated in 1980 from the 1980 Crowsons catalogue. Lots of dull yellow and brick...

All meals were basically all you can eat buffet which is ideal for 14 seventeen year olds. The hotel is in the middle of town and easily accessible to shops and supermarkets...

Initially we made the error of booking for four people without confirming there were two bedrooms. Upon discovering this, either the owner or manager intervened and switched us to another room. As we had to leave promptly for a tour and the new room wasn't going to be available for a short while, we handed over our luggage to be...
