Stayed at the lodge for 3 nights . Initially were worried about getting bored but what an amazing experience. Booked one of their mountain chalets. Utmost privacy , amazing unblocked view surrounded by mountains . The chalets were worth the money , big spacious rooms , amazing view , big beds , nice staff. Milford is totally worth the money,...

We stayed 2 nights in a motorhome at the lodge. Lovely area, so picturesque. Administration could do better. Booking process was strange, blamed on computer malfunctions, conditions of booking had changed however when pressed honoured the advertised deal. Word of warning, great scenic area but unless you are adventurous and ending or entering an outdoor activity there is nothing to... More

We shared a dormitory room with my daughter and my parents, and have no complaints - apart from my Dad's snoring! The onsite café is great, healthy and tasty food and not expensive which is really good because it's not like there is much competition in Milford. The shower and toilet block facilities are clean and modern. The stars in... More

Crashed here for 1 night after a scenic drive, before our boat cruise the next morning. I'm not really a "hostel person", so take my review with a grain of salt. Lots of free parking. Front desk was very helpful. There was a little cafe with a few dinner options, but also a self-serve kitchen. If you haven't been to... More

Stayed here one night whilst travelling around south island on holiday. The room was beautiful, the view was spectacular and staff were very friendly. We stayed in a mountain view chalet which felt brand new and had a ranch slider which opened up to a spectacular view over the mountains. Pricey but worth it!

Wife and I stayed at lodge 2 nights in river side cabin. It was a great move. Milford can and does get socked in with clouds all the time. It also gets 24 feet of rain a year yes 24 feet so you can imagine it is cloudy and poor weather most of the time. If you plan on coming... More

We stayed in a Mountain View Chalet. The Mountain View Chalets comprise 2 units to a building and they have a motel type room with a separate bathroom. There are only 8 Mountain Chalets, which means 4 buildings in total. There are various forms of accommodation at Miford Sound Lodge - Mountain View Chalets, River View Chalets, backpacker accommodation, Campervan... More

Stayed here for one night in a 4-bed dorm room. I had booked a kayaking-package which also included a dinner-snack and breakfast, which was nice and easy for me (this made me give 4 instead of 3 points). Food also pretty good. Seating area at times seemed too small for all the people. The room was pretty basic but okay,... More

This is the second time I've stayed at Milford lodge and it's been great both times. Staff are friendly, rooms are clean and comfortable. Next time I'm definitely going to stay in one of the chalets as they look amazing. Good work Milford Lodge :)

I would be giving this a much higher rating if it weren't for the paper thin walls in this place. The room was clean and the bed was very comfy and large. The bathrooms were kept clean and the shower has excellent water pressure and heat, and they are in cubicles so you can take your belongings in with you... More
