Milford Sound Lodge was just the most perfect 2 nights stay. We stayed in a Lake View Cabin, the view was to die for and the modern design was just luxury. Check-In was easy and the staff were so lovely. We borrowed movies from front desk with ease and just enjoyed the scenery. On Day 2 we took the beautIful... More

We took a double room in the lodge ahead of a cruise on Milford Sound the following day. The room was basic, but better than expected. Perfect for outdoor types. With a wall heater, it was cosy and quiet. The communal lounge was a lovely place to relax and enjoy a drink, well appointed and designed. We took advantage of... More

We stayed 2 nights in a Chalet at Milford Sound Lodge. The rain was pouring down when we arrived so all the waterfalls were in action. We entered the chalet and the floor to ceiling window revealed the wonder of Milford Sound. The river was raging and right there at our door step, the place was cosy, lots of little... More

There is no accommodation choice in Milford Sound so the price is steep and what you get is not what I would call 'luxurious' (OK - maybe luxurious in NZ standard - but normal chalet that I would expect in Europe or Asia..) Rooms are nice but nothing special - especially that your 'river view' is constantly enhanced by semi-dressed... More

We normally would have rated this stay as possible five stars, except for the sand flies. Luckily we asked if there was a lesser priced accommodation and for $165 less a day we got a better room within the Lodge area. You can request a water or river view. However we chose to inspect the accommodations before we roosted for... More

We stayed in a cabin. Very pricey but also really nice and upscaled for where you are. Remember you are on a river a few km from the sound but gorgeous views. Had to share kitchen with backpackers which was fine, but for the price would have figured a stove in the unit. It is noisy with everyone in the... More

The sheer beauty of the surrounds is amazing as is the drive out from Te Anau particularly in winter - an experience not to be missed. The view from my husband's room was beautiful and the room was fine though a little overpriced but he didn't find the staff as helpful as some other reviewers have indicated - I guess... More

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
