It would be very hard to find a more perfect launchpad to explore Fiordland, New Zealand’s largest national park, than Fiorland Lodge. We stayed here for only one night on the way to Doubtful Sound. Certainly it was not enough to enjoy this amazing place! Panoramic views of the magnificent lake and mountain ranges from my room almost put me... More

Can't add much to the comments other people have made - we stayed 3 nights, loved the welcome, the room, the view, the food, the staff .......... Had a chat 24 hours later to one of the staff who had pulled up behind us as we stopped at some roadworks 100 km away, recognised us (or maybe our car!) and... More

I chose this outfitter lodge based on the fact that it was Orvis approved as this company is remarkable in standing behind all their products and services. It did not disappoint! The accommodations were superb. The food was terrific and the guiding was, as my granddaughter would say Awesome. I would recommend this destination for anyone wanting a sight fly-fishing... More

This is a beautiful lodge set in a stunning location. This is a great choice for excursions to Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound and several hiking trails. The lodge is beautifully run by Andy who is knowledgeable and gracious. My favorite aspect of the lodge is the young staff of women who work there from various parts of the world. they... More

About 5km out of Te Anau on a beautiful lake with stunning mountain views, for which they have a huge picture window in the bar/reception area. Apparently the lodge specialises in fishing travellers, but we have no interest in fishing and still felt 100% at home. The rooms all look out over the lake and are very comfortable. We were...

How do you sum up the great Wow factor of views and the huge heartfelt welcome from the Manager down. The staff here really are unique in their approach to their guests and the food is seriously the best we enjoyed on our 5 week trip to NZ (and NZ knows how to eat well!) Thank you one and all...

My son and I were fortunate enough to stay at this little piece of paradise and take a fly fishing package as well. Andy, Lou and the staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and took in the magnificent lake and mountain views from the lounge. We experienced superb breakfasts and dinners with superb local Chardonnays and... More

Fiordland Lodge on Lake Te Anau is the place to stay in Fiordland. Andy, Lou and the staff provide impeccable service and the food is terrific. The setting is as majestic as you could possibly imagine and the lodge has so much charm. It is very convenient to Milford and Doubtful Sounds which should not be missed. The access to... More

We stayed at Fiordland lodge on the way to Doubtful Sound. Without a doubt, one of the nicest places that we stopped in New Zealand. It is not cheap, but that is tempered by the fact that you feel that it is worth it. The location and view are hard to beat. I cannot imagine what this place cost to... More
