                We chose to stay at Te Anau Hotel & Villas because of visiting Milford sounds, a must do if time allows. Also visit the cinema and view the astounding milford sound video,while enjoying a hot toddy drink, movie only takes half an hour, well worth it. I was disappointed in the motel as the room we apparently chose was a viilla appartment , which is at the back of the motel. The room was comfortable , but needs maintance, especially the bathroom . I was disappointed the room was not part of the motel.

                Did not like the fact that when booking this premises I would have preferred to stay at the motel. We would not be staying at the Motel.

                Proximity to city center was excellent.

                You could tell that the hotel was designed decades ago. The furniture has been updated but the facility is still very old fashioned.

                Separate lounge in villa. excellent food, special coffee's were excellent! location was great.

                had to have the heater on all night because of draft under door, easily fixed with some door stops or better insulation. plus there was no extractor fan in bathroom and only a window which opened and again made the room freezing. plus everywhere we have stayed that say they don't wash the towels if they are left up have always washed them this place no exception. if your going to say that your looking after the environment then you should actually do it!?

                Location of the hotel.

                The hotel felt shabby and for the same price we stayed at much nicer places in bigger towns.

                The spa bath was awesome. Got more than what we expected. Full kitchen with microwave was handy too.

                Location was excellent. Easy walk to downtown area with restaurants. We had a cottage and very much enjoyed the extra space after a couple of nights at some close quarters during our trip. Staff was warm and helpful.

                It would have been nice to have had wifi available in the rooms. Wifi was available in the dining room, bar area and lobby area.

                9.6

                I liked how all we had to do was book in at main office then felt completely alone in our villa room, all it took was to book and pick up the key and the spa and suana was ours for the entire hour. Distinction is very close to shops and cafes, within walking distance. Top stay every second was made to feel as comfortable as id expected :)

                There were cobwebs thoughout the room, and just under the duvet cover was a pair of woolen socks that wernt ours.

                Good location quiet and peaceful and my partner loved the full breakfast in Hotel dining room.

                Pricey and no Microwave or Hot pad in room

                8.8

                I liked the lakeside views and proximity to the town centre. Nice happy hour in the Bar with free Wifi. Spacious room with good TV.

                Bathroom was a little cramped. Provided with only one pillow - when asked, service staff did not believe us.

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                Loved the bed and the cleanliness of hotel. Staff was very helpful.

                Would of loved to have shower with door though, not a big fan of shower curtains.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                The hotel is beautifully located. A lake view room would have been superb. Internet connectivity was very useful. Enjoyed the bar ambience.

                The Villa itself was a bit dated, especially the bathroom facilities. The layout could have been bettered to give more room in the bathroom. The swimming pool was a bit small. We did not use it. but would be quite unusable during a busy period.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                The staff and facilities were great, location to shops etc, we had a most enjoyable stay.
