Knobs Flat is a wonderful place to stay in the middle of the Fiordlands National Park. You can stay in very old, rustic cabins which were built for workman and then grandfathered in when the park was established. The cabins each have a private bath and a kitchen and they are clean. The best thing about staying here is the location! You are in the middle of the wilderness. The scenery is awesome and the sunrise on the mountains was gorgeous. The location is convenient to Milford Sound and what a treat it was to stay in the wilderness and not have to put up a tent or eat on the ground. We loved Knob's Flat!

We can't say enough positive things about this accommodation. Centrally located for the best hiking and tours. Spacious, quiet, modern, extremely clean, well equipped units. Beautiful valley views as you enjoy dinners on the deck. The owner/manager has many tips if you are a hiking enthusiast. Very reasonable rates.

We were traveling to Milford Sound from Queenstown and decided to spend a day in Te Anau, stay overnight close to Milford Sound to make early drive short and pleasant. Knobs Flat exceeded my expectations. I wish I spent more time there. Nice small resort hidden in the mountains. All rooms equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, however don't count on TV or internet. There is no reception. This is your opportunity to stop staring in your smartphone or computer screen and get out on 101 with nature. Listen to the near by waterfall, see how huge the stars are when you get close to them, smell earth scents, listen to birds...
Practically, you have the stove, the fridge, French press for coffee and coffee supply, comfortable beds and good showers. Everything is sparkling clean and the manager is very helpful. They also have campground if this is your traveling preference. I highly recommend to stop by.

Room Tip: We've booked two large units with queen size bed, one had an additional sofa bed. Both were excellent

We were traveling as a honeymooning couple. Found the website extremely informative so we were well prepared as to what to expect. Brought our own tin foil, ziplocks, fresh food, condiments etc. The front desk is fairly well stocked if you are missing an item.

We booked cabin with a queen bed. It was wonderful! Quality construction, efficient use of space, absolutely spotless with all the essentials (including a great assortment of teas and coffee). Good linens and nice bed - what else could you ask for after a long drive! Ours actually had a lovely view of a waterfall across the road!

Front office was more than helpful, had all the info/connection to all the different activities/cruises.

10+++ for location! I highly recommend staying overnight at the Knobs Flat to get on an early Milford Sound cruise ahead of the tour bus madness from Queenstown. Pause and enjoy the peaceful fresh air.

Room Tip: Bring extra plastic bags for your trash.
