This hotel has recently been given a makeover. The large sitting room on the 1st floor is a nice touch and the staff are lovely and very helpful. It is clean, well appointed but bare. The rooms are simple. For NZ$390 per night, one expects more. We had tried to stay in some of the B&B's in the area but...

The hotel room was beautiful and clean. The hotel lounge and restaurant were very well kept and it was very relaxing! The Manager was extremely friendly and so helpful! We highly recommend this hotel and will come back the next time we visit Fox Glacier.

Two nights here did not disappoint. Facilities are very good, and the lift and laundry a real bonus. The communal, spacious lounge with its welcoming gas fire was the perfect place for a glass of wine to rest your weary bones after the amazing glacier hikes. Really appreciated the advice from Chris and staff about things to do and see.

We had 2 nights here on a West Coast trip and after a small room with a snoring buddy the night before the large rooms here were a haven (we got singles!). Close to the town centre (it's not that big), friendly staff and a great breakfast. The manager Chris was a great guy. Recommend.

This hotel was pricier than similar hotels in other locations. But, its was the nicest in town. The staff was very knowledgable and accommodating. They even extending our breakfast to accommodate a sunrise hike that they suggested. The breakfast was excellent. We would recommend this to anyone visiting fox glacier.

We stayed one night at this boutique hotel on our trip around the South Island in March this year. We were on the second floor with a good view. We were greeted warmly by the receptionist when we arrived and we soon were settled into our room which though it felt very much like a motel room, was clean and...

This little gem in Fox Glacier has everything a traveler could want;happy hour, a laundry, great breakfast and views. The staff was helpful and directed us to a free Glow Worm sighting, the best we saw in New Zealand.

Wonderful location with friendly, helpful staff, Nice to have a complementary wine before dinner. A lift to the second floor helped the not so mobile and the rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. Views from the rooms are worth the stay themselves. Dinner and breakfast were very good without being very special - perhaps more fresh fruit would help....

Good location with off street parking undercover. Very helpful, our booking had been made for the following night but they fixed everything with very little trouble. Good sized rooms and welcome glass of wine enjoyed in lounge. Breakfast was good and fresh.
