Distinction Luxmore Hotel Lake Te Anau
Ranked #12 of 22 Hotels in Te Anau
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Stayed overnight in a superior room as part of a Grand Pacific Coach tour. The hotel presents well, is close to the water and Esplanade with a beaut walkway, shops and cruises to the Glow Worm caves. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. We had dinner and breakfast and the meals were good with pleasant, helpful staff and this was the same in the reception area too where there is also free Wi-Fi. A great place for overnight but also extended as it is close to Milford Sound.

This hotel is very basic but the value is very good. We arrived without a reservation and the guy at the front desk made us the internet price for a standard room ($86) and gave us a deluxe twin room with two queen size beds as a free upgrade ! The bathroom was huge and very clean with a comfortable tub. There is free wifi but as everywhere in NZ it's slow and inefficient. Location is great.

I found this hotel wonderful. Position was great, staff friendly and room was huge. The bed was really comfortable. The one I slept in - I had a choice of two queen size beds in my room. I didn't find it dated at all but maybe I have no taste. One of the best hotels I stayed in while I was in nz.

Ok, the Hotel is a bit dingy and dated but the rooms are comfy and the staff very pleasant and helpful. There is free on site parking and free wifi in the reception area which can't be said for a lot of hotels of similar standard.
There are plenty of eating establishments within easy reach as well as a couple of supermarkets and petrol stations.
The Hotel is situated about 100m from lake in centre of town.

Stayed one night on tour on way back from Milford Sound. Hotel is bigger than it looks from the entrance but has that dated eighties dark feel which extends to the rooms. Having said that the rooms are clean and comfortable. Buffet meal and breakfast were fine as far as food was concerned but the set up for the coffee/tea just caused overcrowding and confusion.
Downside of the bar was that at 9.30! they started to mop around you and prepare to close. Kiwis seem to want you to drink in your room rather than buy and sit in their bar area!
There was some sort of altercation in the car park at some ungodly hour which seemed to be hotel staff but I doubt that is a regular occurrence.

The hotel is conveniently located and close to shops and supermarket. Rooms are a bit old but clean and comfortable to stay for a night. The best is its restaurant that serves beef, ham, and sheep shank. The desserts that come in one-bite piece are particularly wonderful. Do leave room for them.
