Spent 2 nights in this high end lodge near the Milford and Doubtful Sounds. Exceptional building, using local natural materials and set in very natural and sympathetically designed grounds. Fine views, quiet places to sit and enjoy them. Very comfortable accommodation, exceptionally good food, highly professional service. Not cheap, but nice touches such as canapés and a free drink before...

After a long day exploring the often wet and chilly (but still beautiful) Milford Sound, returning to the The Fiordland Lodge is a welcome relief. The accommodations are very comfortable, while the soaring great room offers wonderful views of the lake and mountains. Dinners are delicious, paired with excellent wines.

We stayed in a private cabin and it was wonderful, nice view, good bed and bath. Lots of other options available for travelers of all varieties. We stayed for 1 night but could have stayed for a week! Highly recommend!

This beautiful lodge is located in a quiet place among meadows with sheep and deer. The lake Te Anau offer astonishing sights anytime during the day. We stayed in one of the cabins. Ideal for families and/or group of friends. Though the rooms looked very comfortable too. The restaurant offered a 5 stars menu and the staff were very kind...

We were at the Lodge for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The place is big and spacious with lots of wood and is full of character. We returned from our overnight stay on Doubtful Sound and needed a sandwich, which is not normally on the menu. However, the chef was more than happy to provide them and they...

We stayed here 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The place is expensive but generally delivers, particularly in the areas that matter the most. Service is exceptional. Everyone we encountered was extremely professional and accommodating. The food is outstanding and very creative. Their bar offers a nice selection of reasonably priced wines and a good assortment of liquor (especially Scotch)....

Fjordland Lodge is a luxurious high end resort that is done up in a log cabin style; that does nothing to diminish how luxurious the appointments are. And the view across the lake is spectacular, this is the highest vantage point so you get a panoramic view of the surroundings. The large central room features comfy couches and an enormous...
