We stayed here the night we finished the Milford Track, and then we spent a couple nights in the Milford Sound Lodge. We thought this was definitely the better of the two. Clean, very friendly staff, and great food. Not to mention - probably the best scenery out our bedroom that we've ever had. Highly recommend!

Not much here but a bed and shower which is fine when you are in Milford Sound. What a place! The lodge had great views of the sound and Mitre Peak from most of the rooms. A couple minute walk will take you right to the sound. Can't get over how spectacular Milford Sound is. They do have a bar,... More

This 1960s hotel (not much has changed since then, I think) must be like the Overlook Hotel from the Shining in the winter, but it is clean, friendly and well run and most rooms look straight at Mitre Peak. Rooms are basic (not even TV) but perfectly comfortable, and breakfast good. Forget about cell phones or internet, and enjoy the... More

You can't beat the location! Our room looked right out on Mitre Peak and Milford Sound. There is no other place in Milford with such a spectacular setting. The lodge may be old and the rooms basic but you cannot beat the location or the helpful staff. Our room had some of the latest "green" products, the room was very... More

Stayed here in January and was pleasantly surprised. It is an older building with amazing views. Was very very clean inside and the staff were lovely to deal with. Breakfast was provided and there was a restaurant next door which also served a great meal.

Stayed here in December. The hotel is in a great location. The rooms are very basic but okay. The rooms have no bar fridge, Wi-Fi or TV. The breakfast was good with lots of food options. The set dinner was also good with the lamb rack being especially good. There is a self serve laundry and drying room was those... More

We stayed a night after completing the Milford Track. The hotel is run and used by the company which guides hikers, but they do make rooms available for non-hikers. Fabulous views of the Sound but the interior needs to be smartened up.

Being a photographer I was very pleased with the location of this lodge. Just in front of Mitre Peak. If you walk a few minutes the views are great! I advice you to do so at sunrise. The lodge itself looks a bit 'seventies' from the outside, but has surprisingly good and modern rooms. You can have breakfast and there... More
