Staying in Milford Sound was a great decision as we were able to relax before and after kayaking. The riverside chalet is very nice and we fit four adults comfortably. The under floor heating was such a bonus. The most breathtaking aspect of the lodge is viewing the ultra bright stars at night. Simply amazing!

I stayed in the 4 bed dorm. The room was nice, warm and quiet. The lounge was comfortable and cozy. Bathrooms were clean and water in the shower was hot enough to warm me up after long and cold day of kayaking. Staff was helpful and friendly. Thanks for the great stay!

This is the ultimate place to stay in Milford Sound. The Lodge is located just off the highway among the mountains and with a stunning river running along one side. When we arrived we decided to splurge and upgraded to a Mountain view chalet - this was a fantastic idea! The room was lovely: warm, extremely comfortable, well equipped and... More

Had a lovely stay in Milford Sound with the only accomodation in the area. We used it as a good base to start exploring the Milford Sound area. There are many activities that can be booked from this place, which makes it really easy, and the rooms and facilities are comfortable.

Stayed in the 4 bed dorm which was reasonably priced for the remoteness of the location (same price as backpackers elsewhere). It became really crowded at meal time and was a bit difficult to cook food. The kitchen and utensils were also pretty dirty. The lodge is in a great location and is definatley worth staying the night in Milford.

We had a fantastic stay here in one of the riverside luxury chalets. I have read in other reviews about it feeling like a youth hostel, however we didn't encounter this as we brought our own sandwiches for in room dinner and breakfast was provided as an in room continental breakfast. The cabin was beautiful with a massive glass front... More

Love the location, not so much the facilities. Stayed one night in a private twin, comfortable bed generally tidy. Common use bathroom and shower areas untidy only cleaned once a day upon observing the cleaning check list pinned up inside the facilities. Kitchen area poorly maintained and most backpackers don't clean up after themselves. Lounge area taken up by backpackers... More

We stayed in a double room, which given the unique location was reasonably priced. this was by far the most basic accomodation we had during this trip, with a shared bathroom, but it was all ok. The room was clean and comfortable. We used the communal kitchen to cook our own meal, but I noted the menu for the lodge... More

An odd experience! The place is very attractive. There is quite a choice of different types of accommodation with a wide range of prices. We had a twin room. It was clean and very basic. My wife found the bed comfortable, while I found it distinctly uncomfortable. My wife disliked the shared washing facilities, while I found them fine. They... More
