Amazing views and beautiful room. Karen looked after us really well with great breakfasts and really good advice about how to spend our time in Fox. Was a real highlight for us on our driving trip around the south island.

Our host Karen Simpson was fantastic having many years experience in the tourist business in New Zealand.

Great B&B with comfortable, warm rooms. Great breakfast with fabulous views of Mt Cook and Mt Tasman. Fox Glacier and Lake Matherson are nearby too. Karen is the best host ever! Very knowledgable and always there to suggest activities to meet varied needs and expectations. One of the best B&Bs I've stayed in. Highly recommended.

The best that can be said for the furnishings is basic. The helicopter parked in the garage starts up early and oh those diesel fumes to wake up to. The hot water ran out in the middle of my husband's shower -- and it didn't change slowly. The breakfast is ok but there is no fresh fruit -- only canned...

Karen made us very welcome and immediately put her excellent local knowledge into play to help us get an earlier heli hike on Fox Glacier ( which was brilliant).
