We stayed in the backpackers section of this lodge before and after walking the Milford Track. The price was very reasonable and it was set close to the ferry for the track and views were wonderful. It also had everything that we needed and the room we stayed in had it's own toilet and shower. The staff were also really friendly. However, it really did look run down and the rooms needed a really good clean, repaint and refurbishment. The toilet in our room leaked on the floor, and the unidentified white stringy stuff left on the windowsill wasn't pleasant. Before arriving, it had been unclear whether food could be bought on site. While there was a restaurant kitchen, they only provided a basic breakfast (cereal, fruit, coffee). They sold basic food, but as shops are a long way off in Te Anau, you should take your own.
A friend stayed in the motel unit and this also needed a really good clean. The flaking, textured ceiling coating make me feel uneasy.
The brochures we leafed through showed the Lodge location as a future terminal for the monorail proposal to Milford....
