We stayed here overnight as we were travelling from Queenstown to Milford sound but didn't want to drive the entire way really early in the morning. We stayed in one of the hotel rooms which had an excellent view of the mountains. The price was great and was a great place to stay before driving to Milford Sound the next... More

Good stay for the price, 30km closer to Milford Sound than Te Anau. Nice, friendly staff. Old decor, but everything worked. If all booked in Milford, try it if the primary goal is just sleeping. Downside: There is nothing besides the lodge here. No food, no activiies, no "fun".

This is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I have been to the area several times and I will return again and again. Hiking, helicopter rides and just taking in the views is awesome. I highly recommend a visit to this part of the world. It will always be a great experience.

The backpackers is homely, with a great view. It's simple, maybe a bit dingy, but comfortable and clean. Showers are hot! It's close to the park and quiet, and absolutely met our needs. It could do with a few renovations, but Wayne (the new owner) is friendly and helpful with a good sense of humour. All in all I would... More

Big rooms but not new at all. Place could do with a few improvements in the bathroom and kitchen. Very good location as its in a quiet part of Fiordland national park. Great for stay if on way to Milford Sounds. Worked perfectly as had early morning cruise at Go Orange cruises Milford Sounds.

We stayed in the Backpackers before and after the Milford Track. We were warmly welcomed by the new manager (Wayne) and shown through the backpackers which featured a warm fire place, kitchen, laundry and a large area where you can make a BBQ outside. The old style lodge gives some refreshing character and homeliness after some time on the road.... More

Room was adequate for a one night stopover. Could have been cleaner - washed the china and cutlery before we used them! Room was a good size, bathroom was OK with a good shower. We were lucky and had a room with a view of the lake which somewhat made up for the faults. Also the wifi wasn't working when... More

The lodge offers hotel, motel and backpackers accomodation. We stayed in the backpackers building in a private double with ensuite. The room had a double and single bed and a spacious ensuite. It was simple but had everything we needed. The building had dated decor but felt homely and warm. The kitchen was fully equipped and overlooked a lake and... More
