“Spectacular View....”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

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!

Stayed here in January and was pleasantly surprised. It is an older building with amazing views. Was very very clean inside and the staff were lovely to deal with. Breakfast was provided and there was a restaurant next door which also served a great meal.

Stayed here in December. The hotel is in a great location. The rooms are very basic but okay. The rooms have no bar fridge, Wi-Fi or TV. The breakfast was good with lots of food options. The set dinner was also good with the lamb rack being especially good. There is a self serve laundry and drying room was those with wet and/or dirty clothes. Understand the hotel is owned by Ultimate Hikes which in turn is owned by its parent Trojan Holdings.

We stayed a night after completing the Milford Track. The hotel is run and used by the company which guides hikers, but they do make rooms available for non-hikers. Fabulous views of the Sound but the interior needs to be smartened up.

Being a photographer I was very pleased with the location of this lodge. Just in front of Mitre Peak. If you walk a few minutes the views are great! I advice you to do so at sunrise.
The lodge itself looks a bit 'seventies' from the outside, but has surprisingly good and modern rooms. You can have breakfast and there is a bar, but they don't have a restaurant. Just around the corner you can eat in a bar (average quality). If you plan to visit Milford Sound this lodge is the place to be. It's not cheap but certainly worth to spend a night. Staff is very friendly. Beds are good. Rooms are clean. Unfortunately you are completely disconnected: no mobile network and no internet.

Room Tip: I don't expect you to spend much time in the room. You can't because their check-out time is...
