Location is spectacular - surrounded by mountains and waterfalls and very close to Milford Sound.
We stayed in a two-person cabin (not the riverside Chalet). The cabin is almost comically small, but comfortably warm in the winter and fine for shorter stays. Staff are very friendly.
Common area is nice for hanging out - no TV.
We didn't use the kitchen facilities and ate dinner at the cafe down the road. The on-site cafe makes excellent muffins and flat whites for breakfast.
Had fun watching the kea on the property.
