We arrived a bit late on our first night and were amazed to find this huge apartment. The main room had a dining area, sleeping area and very comfortable large corner sofa. The second bedroom had twin beds and another shower room. It was huge. There were lovely treats and wine/sparkling water etc. We did enjoy watching Netflix and also were given free cinema tickets and the Fiorjdland film which was brilliant. They very kindly allowed us a late check out as I don't think they had guests arriving early the next day, which was much appreciated. Breakfast was at the Sandfly next door and we could choose whatever we wanted and their breakfasts were excellent. We wish we had had more time to chill and enjoy the space.

Quelle ne fut pas notre surprise quand nous avons découvert la "chambre" qui fait au moins 150 m2. Tout est décoré avec goût et aménagé pour procurer le plus grand confort à l'hôte. Une bouteille de vin, du chocolat et du café sont à la disposition du client. La chambre se situe au centre de la ville et au-dessus d'un cinéma : d'où son nom.Nous y avons passé 2 nuits et sommes ravis de notre séjour.

The whole cinema suites has a Fiordland temperate rainforest theme. Lovingly designed and built by the owner who hails from Fiordland. You get to shower in a bathrooms with breathtaking wallpaper from Milford Sounds or the temperate rainforest. We have never seen a hotel room with that many power outlets. Terribly useful for traveller with tonnes of camera and other equipment. The check in counter was really cute because it doubles up as the box office of a fully functioning cinema that screen an amazing feature of the Fiordland. Nellie who helped us was absolutely brilliant and made our stay all the more comfortable and wonderful.

What a surprise find and a perfect place for my husband and I and our 7 year old to chill out in for a couple of wet, lay days whilst travelling around NZ. Is a hefty price tag but a must if you can afford it. We had the option of catching a helicopter flight to Milford Sound however weather didn’t allow for it (this time). We were concerned about whether we’d hear any noise from the cinemas. Absolutely not! Make sure you grab a delicious Bao or three from Habit Foods food truck conveniently located behind the Cinemas... they were amazing! If only we’d discovered them on the first day.

Location: 5 Stars Room: 5 Stars Hospitality: 5 Stars My wife and I spent the night in Te Anau at the Cinema Suites. This is the first place we have stayed at that made us feel like we were home. The space is large and beautiful, very comfy and cozy which is just what we needed after being away from home for some time. It's not often you can lay out on a couch and watch Netflix while being on holiday. The bottle of wine and fruit that the hostess provided was a nice touch. Breakfast next door at the Sandfly Cafe was wonderful. The food trailer behind the building served some great food. We were down the street from the Real Journeys center which we walked 5 mins from our room to. The Cinema Suites is pricier than just about everywhere in Te Anau, but well worth it. You get what you pay for, and having a night at home while being on a long holiday is priceless in my opinion. I hope to visit again the next time I am in town!
