The reviews of this place are all over the map, which makes sense because the various accommodations are so different. I stayed in a River Chalet with my husband and son, and it was AMAZING. We lucked out with wonderful weather, which was lucky as we had a cruise on the second day (booked with our package). We ate at... More

We stayed here for a night, in a powered camper an site, before taking a trip on Milford Sound. The staff were friendly and helpful with the booking of a cruise on the Milford Sound. They have a basic cafe at which we had dinner, but also have kitchen facilities if you wish to cook for yourself. If this is... More

This venue was a delightful spot after a drive from Te Anu. It was the only space in our bust itinerary and what a place to stay! We booked a River Chalet and in fact we're initially placed in the Mountain Chalet. After we had a surprise visitor with the same key, we were moved to our more expensive Riber... More

Years ago there was a great hotel here at Milford Sound called the Mitre Peak Inn. It fell into disrepair and it was later purchased by a hiking organization that is private, and not open to the public unless they happen to have a room available not taken by their hiking groups. Cost is about $150NZ. The fallback is the... More

This is a lodge with varying types of accommodation, we had booked into the dorms as this was all that was available at the time of booking apart from the expensive lodges, However when we arrived a cabin No3 was available for an extra nineteen dollars to what we had already paid in advance, this was probably due the persistent...

We stayed here 1 night - 2 families of 5 in an 11 bed dorm. Service was friendly and efficient. Fun place to stay. Very busy and full of people heading off on all sorts of different adventures. Room was comfy. No queues in the bathrooms. Shared kitchen a little crazy - couldn't find a tin opener and knives and... More

Stayed here for one night! The kitchen and lounge area are more than adequate; the kitchen is clean and well stocked, the lounge area is nicely decorated with clean and extremely comfortable furniture. There is a piano and guitar available to guests, and we were lucky enough to have some great musicians staying the same night as us! The bathrooms... More

My wife and I visited Milford Sound in March 2015. Initailly we were not planning on staying the night, but our diving excursion required overnight stay. Boy, how lucky we were that we were forced to stay the night. Just a few hours in Milford Sound don't do this place justice, and the Milford Lodge add to the experience. Milford... More

Stayed in a riverside chalet. No 13. What a fabulous setting! Right onto the river. The room was very modern nice size with a terrace & 2 windows floor to ceiling with amazing views up & down the river. A small kitchenette. But only microwave. No shops so bring your own food if you want to cook in the communal... More
