We stayed the night en route to Milfotd Sound and Radfords lived right up to expectation. It's in a quiet spot just across the road from the lake. The suites have a living area and separate bedroom, so there's plenty of space and you enjoy...More

We had an unscheduled stop in Te Anau due to the closure of the Milford road. The service provided by Kerry was nothing short of exceptional in finding us an alternative tour of Doubtful Sound. The accommodation was absolutely spotless with a view to die...More

It takes about 2.5 hours to drive by car from Te Anau (where Radfords is located) to Milford sound. If you are looking to drive into Milford Sound and then back Te Anau later in the day it's a 5 hour round trip.
The road is windy in sections so it can be a tiring day trip, particularly if you're not used to NZ roads :-) You need to be careful to go with a full petrol tank if you are driving as there is no petrol station at Milford Sound.
You can stay overnight in Milford Sound although there are not many accommodation options. We did this and highly recommend it - gives you plenty of time to do a cruise and look around.
Also easy to get there on a day tour by bus from Te Anau.
If you are driving from Milford Sound to Queenstown (one way) it will take at least 4.5 hours. (Be careful because some websites and online maps indicate it's only a couple of hours ... but it's definitely around 4.5 hours and a long drive!).
Hope this helps!
