This motel is well situated in the centre of town, clean and comfortable. Lighting in rooms could be improved. It could use more toiletries in the bathrooms and wifi in rooms. A good choice if you're stopping through on the way to Milford sound.

The room was enormous and again we had the use of a bath. It surprises us how hotels in the same chain can differ. We would have loved a plunger coffee pot and coffee but no real complaints.

If you're heading up to Milford Sound, odds are you're going to have to stay in Te Anau as there aren't too many lodging options up in Milford. Distinction Luxmore is a good option if you're just there for a quick stay which is what my wife and I were doing. It was clean, spacious, and had an ensuite bathroom.... More

Just stayed one night and was imoressed by reception. Stayed in lower floor room, appears to have been built in the 80s and not much has changed since. As long as you dont expect much, this is an okay place to stay.
