"one of the best place we stayed at during our trip to nz. were supposed to pass by te anau en route to milford sound on the 12th, before returning back for a night's stay at te anau on the 13th. however, the road to milford sound was closed due to an avalanche and we enquired if they could put us up for an additional night. not only did the friendly receptionist find us a room, she upgraded us to the marakura studio which were brand new units. the rooms were clean, spacious and had a breathtaking view of the lake. the kitchenette was well equipped and came with a microwave and electric hob. complimentary wifi was a big plus and the reception had plenty of information regarding the local attractions/activities. central location and a 5min drive from the town centre. would definitely stay again if we ever return to te anau."

"We spent 3 nights in Te Anau, which got us an upgraded room. The hotel caters to 1 night bus tour stays. That said, it was nicer than we expected it to be. Hotel is middle of the road, but clean and comfortable with a good location. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We would stay again if the price was right compared to the competition. We ate dinner in their restaurant, and liked that they have a value menu."

"We booked and requested for Lake View family room. And what a view we got of Lake Te Anau! Our apartment was on the 1st floor, with large windows looking out onto the lake. Quiet surroundings made for a comfortable and restful stay. Amenities in apartment a bit on the old side, but they were absolutely fine with us. Bathroom large, white, clean and HEATED... important in the colder months. Overall, a great place to stay. Good things come in small packages."

"Clean room, friendly staff, good water pressure for shower, super comfortable beds, discounted buffet breakfast. Would be great if there was handheld shower (just a personal preference). On-site parking appeared to be limited, and the parking spaces are too narrow for most cars (i.e. you won't be able to get out of the car if you try to park within bay); off-street parking was often occupied by long coaches.

"we had a very pleasant stay at the distinction in te anau, looking at the many different options on agoda we decided to chose the distinction and when we arrived i realized we had made the best choice. the staff is friendly and overly obliging in every way. we had a lake front room which was very well appointed and comfortable. we enjoyed the bar area and the free wifi in the lobby. we stayed for 2 nights and didn't ask for service so the chamber maids left us soap and towels outside our door while we were away."

"From Lake Te Anau you can visit the Milford Sounds, which are around 90 minutes drive from Te Anau. On the way you will find so many spot to marvel at, that you should calculate more time than 90 minutes to get there. In Te Anau you should not miss buying "pies" at Miles Better Pies. Their selection is incredible. They are very friendly and chatty as well. There are lots to see and to discover. Next time we will plan a longer stay to go up to the mountains and to walk one the beatiful tracks around Milford. "

"It is a very good choice for staying here in Te Anau. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. It was easy to get everywhere in Te Anau from this hostel. The kitchen in my room was easy to use and the hot water in my bathroom was stable. Much information was available in a pamphlet in my room. Every pick-up service was familiar with here so it was easy to book all trips around. However, the sound-proof was terrible. If some people stayed next to you kept chatting until midnight, you would have to listen to them instead of falling asleep."
