We used this Hotel as a base to explore Milford sound and the glow worm caves. The Breakfast was very good at $23. The room had all we needed including a small but good bath. The room was clean and the bed comfy. the hotel is old but but in good condition.

Great place to stay and get away from it all. Across the road from the lake, and a short walk to the town. Staff very helpful and the hotel was clean and tidy. Stayed for two nights in total and would go back and stay again!

We havebeen here just one night but the experience has been very good: the room was clean, tidy, wifi was fast and free. A special note to the staff: extremely friendly, Good position if you have planned tours with Real Journey: information centre is 5 minutes by feet.

The amazing friendly service we received from reception... More
