Really can't fault this lodge. It did cost and arm and a leg, and was by far the most expensive place I stayed during my travels around the South Island. However, the weather was glorious and the scenery very special. The staff were really helpful and we had a lovely dinner and breakfast at the Pio Pio Cafe. The accommodation...

Fortunately it is alright to stay there. Great new showers and toilets and kitchen/diner was good to cook and socialise. Be aware there is no phone signal and wifi is embarrassingly expensive for what you get.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Our only choice for internet is Satellite due to our remote location and can be expensive and unreliable. We're glad you enjoyed the new amenities block. Kind Regards.

This place is amazing - we stayed in the hostel portion, but they have private rooms overlooking the river too, which look amazing. The kitchen was pretty well stocked with utensils and pots but could have done with some oil, salt, etc. The restaurant and cafe are also great - delicious coffees. The only reason we didn't give this place...

We drove our campervan to Milford Sound and parked at the lodge for the night. Possibly because we changed our reservation somewhat last minute we ended up with a spot that was essentially in the hotel parking lot. There are some very nice wooded spots a bit further from the hotel that are nicer. However when it's raining all the...

Stayed in a Mountain Chalet for one night and the room was extremely clean. There are not any options for dining in Milford Sound outside of the cafe in the Lodge and the food is extremely tasty and good value for money - expect to pay at least 25 for mains. Service is great - employees are extremely helpful and...

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay in the Mountain View Chalet - thank you for taking the time to review your time with us.

The Milford Sound Lodge has accommodations, like a holiday park, for just about any level of comfort that you may want. From luxury chalets, to dorm rooms, to camp sites. Our party of four had a four bed dorm room that had two bunk beds. The room was small and rustic, but that was all that we needed. The dorm...

Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Milford Lodge in the campervan park. We're glad you had such a great time - waking up to that view is something quite special! Our resident Kea population can be very cheeky, and they're worth keeping an eye on for this reason. Kind Regards.

We stayed one night here in February 2017, and it was the most beautiful night of my life. The view is the best I've seen in my entire life. Definitely worth booking WELL in advanced, although we snagged the hotel one week before we got here, because I guess someone cancelled their reservation. It is worth the price, for the...
