There was good and bad at this lodge. It was the most expensive place we have stayed at and sadly it didn’t live up to expectations. The good bit is the location, the building and the hot tubs. Sadly we felt the attention to detail wasn’t there. The rooms (we were in the cheaper rooms @ $750 ish per night) were dated, and could have done with a fresher look. Service was OK but not spot on. The menu for evening meal was not available when we asked at about 4 pm although one was expected to decide if you wanted to eat there as chef needed to know! We did eat there one evening, it was OK but not worth the $90 a head.
What a beauty! Hubs and I were lucky enough to stay in one of the log cabins for our two night stay. We received incredible service from the moment we stepped in the massive double door. The first night of our stay, we indulged in the set menu with pre dinner canapés and drinks in the great room. We met a few of the other other guest and it felt very intimate and cosy. The meal itself was an amazing 3 course meal, which hubs and I chose “one of each” from the options available. Breakfast was included, and you have a great selection to choose from. The second night of our stay we decided to eat elsewhere, but came back early to enjoy one of the hot tubs available to guest. It was very tranquil and as you can imagine, the view was spectacular (see picture). We felt this place was definitely a place we could come back. Amazing hospitality as well. Thank you for our enjoyable stay!
If you are after a personalised luxury experience and a truly 5 star stay, then look no further. We felt like roaylty and could not think of a thing we would change. What an amazing team and a view memories are made of. Well done to the team and thanks for the most memorable stay!
We had a wonderful 2 night stay. Such beautiful views. The food was lovely but the service was impeccable. Liana looked after us so well, nothing was too much trouble, she had such a calm and caring way about her. The rest of the staff were great too. Thank you we will be back
Hands better than a 5 star luxury lodge!!
We had the experience of staying in a 5 star luxury lodge the week before we came to lodge. The 5 star lodge was approximately $1800 per night so about 3x the amount we were paying to stay per night at Fiordland Lodge. So we set our expectations based on the price we paid. OMG! Talk about under promise over deliver!! The service and the food blew us away! The lodge rooms were very nice with an opening to the front lawn if you are on the ground floor. There is a open pantry where you can help yourself to a beer or a bag of chips. The minibar in the room is free.The food was extremely yummy! The wine list isnt that extensive but well priced like all the alcoholic drinks. The hot tub with the super amazing view! The Fiordland Lodge can take on any 5 star luxury lodge. Big thank you Karina, Thu and Andy for making our stay such a memorable one. We absolutely loved the lodge and we will be back soon!
