Wheelchair accessible and free car parking is offered directly outside the hotel.

Our Venues

The Turnbull Room – Our spacious, air conditioned Turnbull Room can cater for up to 220 guests and can easily be divided into two smaller soundproof spaces. A very versatile meeting room and the perfect location for a large, lavish affair. It has a private entrance, its own bar, and a state of the art sound system.

MacKinnon Private Room – Furnished to the highest quality, the MacKinnon Private Room is the perfect venue for the smaller meeting or training event. Located within the renowned MacKinnon Room Restaurant, this secluded, intimate venue is ideal for private dining, with mood lighting to create the perfect ambience.

Lakeview Wedding Chapel – The only wedding chapel on the lake, unique to Distinction Te Anau Hotel and Villas. This artisan inspired glass wedding chapel enjoys panoramic views of the lake and ranges. Ideal for any occasion, this is a unique venue with spectacular surroundings.

MacKinnon Room Restaurant – With spectacular views and sleek interior, our renowned MacKinnon Room Restaurant is ideal for that extra special event. This stylish modern restaurant enjoys expansive views of Lake Te Anau and the Fiordland Ranges. This is the hotel's main restaurant, therefore over summer it is normally fully booked for evening meals, in the winter it is available by negotiation in the evenings. 

The Explorer Bar & Lakeview Terrace – For a pre-dining drink, tapas, a light meal or afternoon tea, The Explorer Bar and Lakeview Terrace is the perfect place to soak in the surrounds, and the gorgeous uninterrupted views of Lake Te Anau. As this is our house bar we are unable to offer this as an exclusive venue.

BBQ & Poolside Area – For the truly Kiwi touch, the poolside barbeque area is perfect for those late, warm evenings and a dip in our heated pool.

Distinction Te Anau Hotel and Villas offers an extensive outside grass and manicured grounds with lake or garden views, which make it a striking setting for outside conferencing, team building activities, and dining.
