You can't beat the location! Our room looked right out on Mitre Peak and Milford Sound. There is no other place in Milford with such a spectacular setting. The lodge may be old and the rooms basic but you cannot beat the location or the helpful staff. Our room had some of the latest "green" products, the room was very clean and the bedding comfortable for weary travelers. We were there on very clear night and I went out about 4 AM to an unbelievable view of the stars and the Milky Way...the breakfast buffet was one of the best we had on our NZ trip!
