2 Bedroom Villa
Stayed 3 nights in December 2017

Scenic and peaceful location ”

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage here for 3 nights . Though the villas do not overlook the lake they are very comfortable , clean and cozy . The bedrooms are comfortable and the bathroom is nice and large . The location is very convenient and walking distance from the restaurants and the travel/ sightseeing agencies. Te Anau lakeside itself is very peaceful and scenic and one can go for long walks along the lake . I personally find Te Anau much nicer and less touristy than Queenstown . We had a memorable stay at Distinction Te Anau and villas !

Best Hotel in Te Anau”

Great location and Amazing Staff!

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.

Excellent location, modern rooms”

Room decor was nice, view (lake-facing) was perfect

we stayed 2 nights at the distinction hotel. it had a nice relaxed atmosphere (as did te anau generally). breakfast was quite expensive ($29 i think), so we opted to eat out. all in al i would recommend this hotel.

Decent hotel in a small town”

Rooms are big and even the smallest ones can host 4 adults. Location is really good as it's on the lake and only 10 minutes walk to most restaurants in town. The beds and mattresses are a bit old but I have seen the same condition in famous hotels so that's quite common of older hotels. Would recommend this place if you are staying in Te Anau.
