We loved our stay at the lodge. We stayed there two nights (early September) and everything about the lodge was great. The view from the lodge and our room was beautiful overlooking the Lake. The staff were very friendly and helpful - especially organising our trip to Doubtful Sound when Milford Sound was closed. The restaurant menu was excellent - compliments to the chef. This is honestly the best place I have stayed in. I would highly recommend and would love to visit again if I get back to NZ.

Where do I start?
Well I booked this hotel by seeing a few pictures on internet and what a beautiful place!
We were upgraded to a Suite when we arrived because we were the only guest (the season just started). To be honest, this is one of the best stay in a hotel in my life and I have been traveling quite a lot around the world, from the US to Asia through Europe and Oceania.
This lodge is on a small hill in front of the Lake Te Anau with an amazing view on the mountains/Fiords.
I already miss the surroundings and the dark sky.
It is 2 hours away from Milford Sound with one of the most amazing drive in the world (waterfalls, Homer tunnel, fiords).
The room (Suite) was lovely with a fire place, huge windows, spa bathroom, nice smell and everything you can desire.
The fire place in the dining/leaving room is probably the biggest I've ever seen and there is a Chief to cook dinner and breakfast, just awesome. We had the privilege to have a table in front of the fire place with a very nice Pinot Noir (Black Dog).
I eventually proposed my girlfriend outside this lodge as I felt it was the perfect moment to do it (was hesitating a few times during our two weeks holiday in New Zealand).
Monique and then Andy were just AWESOME, we enjoyed every moment of our stay.
Will definitely come back, worth it 1000 times! If you hesitate, just don't and go for it, you won't regret it!!!
Thumbs up: 10/10

We recently stayed here for 2 nights on our 3 week honeymoon trip around NZ. From the moment you walk in the door until the moment you leave, there is such a high level of personblel service towards you as there guest. We really felt like we were guests in someone home and not just a hotel/lodge.The view from the loungs area is amazing, the rooms are fantastic (and we thoroughly recommend the executive suite) and the food is to die for!! Sometimes places like this can seem pretentious- but not here!Thank you to Monique for always mixing it up with us and never making it boring. We had a fantastic time and it will always be a place for us to remember on our honeymoon. Pity we couldnt stay longer. we will be back!!

Excellent and attentive staff helped organize our entire stay. We emailed back and forth before my arrival and arranged for helicopter tours, day excursions to Milford Sound and Guide coach and boat tours through Doubtful Sound. The rooms, particularly on the 2nd floor offered splendid views. They are not luxurious...more of a lodge-like and plain rather than sumptuous. So don't expect that. The other amenities will more than make up for that. The adjacent restaurant was AMAZINGLY good and you could watch the sun set over the mountains every night at dinner (at least during the summer months). It's a fantastic location and I wouldn't have changed a thing.

Room Tip: Ask for 2nd floor is possible. Great views!!! I love taking photographs...and this was definitely a room with a view!

We stayed at the Fiordland Lodge in September 2009 on our honeymoon. We had specially opted to take this stopover for one night en route to Milford Sound.

Really glad we stayed here, the rooms were very comfortable, views were spectacular to say the least. The staff was very friendly and the food was brilliant. I totally recommend staying at Fiordland Lodge for one night at least.
