Spent three nights at Fiordland Lodge in late February/early March. A wonderful place to stay! Every thing about it was perfect. Large and comfortable first floor Lodge Room, very well furnished and equipped with amazing views of the stars, the lake and the mountains. Could imagine Mordor in the far distance beyond the snow capped peaks! Andy and his team made us feel so welcome. All the staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive, always willing to take time to talk to the guests and to go beyond what would normally be expected in meeting the needs and wishes of guests. Breakfasts and dinners were excellent and we loved the opportunity to get to know other guests over a cocktail and canapes during the pre-dinner happy hour. We chose the Lodge as a base for visiting Milford and Doubtful Sounds. While it was a great base for seeing something of Fiordland it was very much more than simply a place to stay. A great destination in its own right. Andy and his team are to be congratulated on making the Lodge so much more than simply a wonderful building in a perfect location. We hope to be able to return.
