By far my favourite place I stayed whilst in New Zealand. We stayed in a chalet and it was just beautiful, the room was warm, clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly. We were unable to connect to the wifi, but that's no big issue, who wants to spend their time looking at a screen while surrounded by such... More

We read the reviews, but really didn't appreciate how good this place was until we arrived. A running river in the back of the chalet, ridiculous views greeting you everywhere you looked, attentive service and close to everything. Wi-Fi was a little slow, but at least there is Wi-Fi. I think the best review anyone can give is that this... More

We stayed in a chalet in the Milford Sound Lodge and it was an experience out of the world. There are only 4 chalets which are in the middle of nature. The rains and the location made our stay extraordinary. The chalet was comfortable, warm and had all kind of amenities. For vegetarians, the breakfast menu may look like a... More

We stayed in the chalet and it was amazing!! The views were breath taking and the rooms were luxury. The staff were great. We ran out of baby formula and they arranged for a person to collect baby formula, nappies, etc as the shops were 2 hrs away!! They went above and beyond for us.

The Milford Lodge provides a variety of accommodation for different budgets. This review is for the new Mountain View Chalet. My husband and I enjoyed our one night stay here after a long drive from Wanaka. The room was very new, clean and nicely furnished. There was sufficient heating to keep us warm throughout the night. The bed was very... More

Stayed 2 nights in a Riverside cabin. It was a basic, motel room which was clean enough but nothing in the way of facilities. Having paid the price we did my husband then had to go and share the communal kitchen to make his toast which was a far from pleasant experience as the other users weren't as fussy about... More

A great way to enjoy Milford sound in a relaxing way is to drive there and stay. We are glad we did it that way. As for the accommodation it is the most over priced and under delivered place we have ever stayed. At $295 per night for a "luxury river side chalet" you have got to be kidding. In... More

A lot of people visit Milford Sound on a day-trip or in a camper - and they miss out on this wonderful accommodation. We were lucky enough to get one of the "luxury riverside chalets" and loved it. These rooms are very new and modern with full-length windows overlooking the river and mountains. The bathroom as quite large with a... More
