Lodge Dining & Facilities

Food & Beverage – Pio Pio

Not much beats sitting down to a delicious meal after a day exploring the World Heritage wonders of Milford Sound. Newly renovated and with great reviews, Milford Sound’s Pio Pio is one incredible ‘Must-do’ NZ dining experience – and a great excuse to enjoy a night or two off cooking!

Our tempting evening menu includes guest favourites like Fiordland wild venison tenderloin or Malborough Salmon. Fully licensed and open 7 days, you’ll enjoy service from our attentive, friendly team. Start your day with breakfast and coffee and finish it with a refreshing drink & hearty dinner in the evening.

The Wild Fiordland Venison tenderloin – a guest favourite!

Guest Lounge with Internet Access

Relax, discuss the day’s activities, have a read and recharge the batteries before turning in for the night. Our guest lounge offers plenty of super comfy sofas and no television to distract you from the beauty that is Milford Sound during the evening. There is internet available for purchase – keep in mind that it is a satellite system because of Milford Sound’s wilderness location, so speed/data is limited.

Guest Kitchen

All guests enjoy 24 hour access to a well appointed and equipped kitchen (see features below).


Catch up on your washing — our laundry room offers 2 commercial washing machines and dryers.

Guest Shuttle

Shuttles run into the township to collect Guests and Milford Track walkers coming off the boat from Sandfly Point.  All shuttles run at scheduled times through peak season. From May – September, the shuttle runs for guests on request only – please let our team know if you need to be picked up.
