    We stayed in a twin room with shared bathroom for one night. The room was fairly basic (twin single beds, not much else) but a couple of nice Milford Sound photos on the walls and European pillows on the beds were nice touches. There was a heater (we only used for an hour or so but it was nice to have) and the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms had plenty of toilet and shower stalls and a couple of hairdryers. A couple extra hooks and a bigger shelf in the shower stalls would be nice. The bathrooms were cleaned regularly. There is a nice lounge and dining area, the staff were friendly and helpful, there is a cafe with reasonable food. We went kayaking early morning on the day we checked out and were able to store our bags AND have a shower when we came back to the Lodge wet and cold.

    The only drawback was the kitchen which was far too small for the number of people staying at the lodge and not very well equipped. Overall this was a very nice place to stay and certainly allows you to experience Milford Sound in a way that you can't on a day trip from Queenstown or Te Anau.

    A Hostel with a view

    Considering that it is the only accommodation in Milford Sound, the owners could let this hostel slide and people would still come. But, they are doing anything but.in our two nights there, we saw new furniture, new signs, and new artwork. Our room was a backpacker room, with four bunk beds, a table and a chair, but it was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms and kitchens were clean, and the scenery is unbeatable.

    Good location, lovely helpful staff,mostly dorm accommodation. We wanted private rooms, but there aren't many and they get snapped up very quickly. With 5bunks and 1 single bed in a family small room, so 11 people, it got quite stuffy. Added to that, Milford is plagued with sandflies, so the windows had to remain firmly shut the entire time.

    Milford Sound is very isolated with only one place to stay and one restaurant. Before leaving Te Anau we stocked up on food supplies and petrol before setting off on 'the most scenic drive in the world' (we seem to have done about 5 of these drives since starting travelling). The drive to Milford is only 2 hours but it can easily take a day if you …

    Thoughts:


    - Possums are here in NZ, however, they don't look like the ones we see in the US. They're furrier and cuter and there is a reason why so many go splat on the roads at night. When they see headlights, they just lumber about either continuing their slow journey to cross the road or they freeze and wonder what bright lights …

    From Te Anau to Milford Sound is about 2 hours drive through some of the most beautiful country I've ever seen. We travelled through Te Anau Downs and then across the Divide and the driver allowed several photo stops.

    The first thing about Milford Sound is that it gets around 9 metres of rain a year so even when it's not raining it's …
