Set in a World Heritage Area, Fiordland Lodge offers the discerning traveler style, comfort and privacy, and is the perfect base from where to explore Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound, and the surrounding Fiordland National Park. The Lodge itself was constructed in 2002 and sits on a superb rural site with rolling grass lands and has commanding views out across Lake Te Anau. Inside the open architecture of the Lodge reflects the vastness of the Fiordland National Park and echoes of the forest are found in the striking natural timber construction. In the lounge, a lattice work of huge log trusses soar to over thirty-six feet above and surround a large open fire, clad with local river stone. Fiordland Lodge will be your exclusive retreat in Te Anau while you get the opportunity to discover one of the world's most beautiful areas. It is an area where snow-capped mountains, rivers of ice, deep lakes, unbroken forests and tussock grasslands produce a landscape of exceptional beauty. At Fiordland Lodge, a maximum of 29 guests are accommodated in 10 luxurious rooms in the Lodge and two separate self-contained loft-style Log Cabins. Accommodation features king-size beds, well-appointed private bathrooms and superb views, and the decor reflects the beautiful Fiordland landscape, focusing on muted natural colors and textures. Comprising 9 Lodge Rooms, one Executive Suite and two exclusive Fiordland Lodge log cabins. The log cabins provide secluded accommodation for a maximum of five guests separate to the main lodge. All ten accommodation options have commanding views over Lake Te Anau, and external access out onto either the balcony upstairs, or the lawn downstairs. Fiordland Lodge offers the discerning traveler style, comfort and privacy, yet is only five kilometers from the tourist township of Te Anau. Set on a superb site with commanding views out across Lake Te Anau this is a rural setting with rolling grass lands surrounding the Lodge, Lake Te Anau being a mere ten minute walk away. Across the lake to the west lie the mountains of Fiordland National Park, an area of over three million acres of untouched wilderness and part of the much larger South West New Zealand World Heritage Area. Fiordland, on New Zealand's south west corner, has long been recognised as one of the great eco-heritage areas of the world. Te Anau is the gateway to Milford and Doubtful Sounds and the Kepler and Murchison mountains. Also owned and operated from Fiordland Lodge is Fiordland Guides, a renowned organization that offers guided tramping and hikes, birdwatching excursions, and most importantly, fishing trips. The Fiordland region is world renowned for its fly-fishing, particularly for rainbow and brown trout in the crystal clear, well-stocked local rivers and streams. Owned and operated by Ron and Robynne Peacock the business is based on offering clients informative, personal and professional experiences based on local knowledge having both had a long association and love of the Fiordland area. The other amenities include barbecue area, library, lobby and reception. Note : The hotel strongly advise guests to take out travel insurance to protect themselves against unexpected changes to there travel plans.

The restaurant at Fiordland Lodge offers a spectacular sweeping panorama of lake Te Anau and the surrounding Kepler and Murchison mountains providing a dramatic backdrop for savouring a melting pot of New Zealand cuisine. The enjoyment of food and wine is integral to the experience on offer at Fiordland Lodge and the use of quality ingredients being seasonal and regional, and largely organic are fundamental to the cuisine philosophy. Every item on the menu hails from the surrounding land, and as an example within five minutes of the lodge there are at least 10 rivers that have fresh watercress sprouting and wild black berries that grow on the side of the road. Items such as the breakfast jams will have been plucked from the onsite garden, and items such as venison and rabbit sourced from the local hunters themselves. Particular attention is given to dietry requirements. The hotel bakes own breads, offer a selection of homemade baking treats, truffles, cereals and much much more.

Fabulous location but a little short of a five star experience

The location was indeed wonderful and spectacular views from the lodge to the moutains and lake. STaff were very attentive and professional - although all we spoke with were international/foreigners and were unfamiliar with some of the surroundings/local knowledge etc. The lodge room on the top floor was very comfortable and quite compact - smaller than most of the suites and rooms we have stayed in in similarly priced properties. Disappointing level of amenities and no pool or spa for guests after a long day which would have been nice. Very peaceful location and great for a break away from civilisation. Food was of a good standard and staff were very happy to help with any requests.
