This room was clean and perfectly comfortable however the walls were very thin meaning we could hear the noises from the guests in the room next to us. The plumbing was also very noisy meaning when the room above us had a shower we could hear the plumbing pipes in our room. It's what I consider a standard motel room...

Distinction Luxmore is conveniently located in Te Anau's Town Centre. It's steps away from the Intercity bus stop, close to restaurants, shops, tour operators, including the Real Journeys office and the dock for boats leaving for the glow worm cave. My room was spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable with mini fridge and tea kettle. The hotel is in need of...

Very hot room with an overpowering air freshener smell (like a cheap pine tree for a car). Hard bed. Unable to do an early breakfast. My pre-packed breakfast had a sandwich in it with dry bread and no butter. I admit asking for ham and egg but expected boiled egg not a cold fried one - still, that filling was...

This is a very nice property in a really pretty little town. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Te Anau, the little town, is the gateway to Milford Sound and this hotel would be an excellent place to stay with the only problem being that the front desk staff is condescending and rude. In dealing with a problem I...

We stayed here two nights in order to do a Milford Sound Cruise. There were two queen size beds in the room as well as a sitting area.

We spent 1 night on our way to Milford Sound & were very impressed with the size of the room (2 king size beds), exceptionally clean and a great view of snow capped mountains from our window. A 2 minute walk to the lake & shopping street. The restaurant food was very good. Would definitely recommend this little gem.

Spent one night and felt it was amazing.the rooms were very spacious and clean. Wish I could have stayed longer. Woke up in the morning to find it snowing which I have never seen falling. If you are ever down that way, got to give this hotel a go.😀
