Our stay here was short and sweet! The check in was seamless with very friendly service. The rooms are modern and well kitted out with everything you may need. Great value for money! Could walk into town probably about 1 - km away. We drove.

Even though it was raining & we knew we couldn't see the glacier, our hosts were so full of information & knowledge of everything 'Fox'. Room had great views & we went to local supermarket & bought stuff to cook. Relaxing & happy!
