Margaret was a wonderful hostess. I have gluten free dietary requirements and she did a wonderful job with having breakfast choices and snacks available I could eat. The gardens and the view from our room was gorgeous. We really enjoyed having Horton her dog great us every-time we came back from a day excursion. The first night we where there...

I just returned from a month-long trip through NZ and AUS and of all the places we stayed, The Foxes remains among the most memorable. First, the drive up to the location from the Picton Ferry Terminal was stunning and was really our first introduction to the NZ countryside... figuring it couldn't be topped I was blown away as we...

We stopped at the Foxes for a 3-night stay, having been traveling at a lively pace for about three weeks. What a lovely, restful place to just take a deep breath, relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The hilltop location looks over peaceful farmland, the shoreline below and the sea beyond, while the house and its extensive gardens are absolutely...

I stayed at the Foxes earlier this year. We had such a wonderful time in Upper Moutere with its excellent wine tasting, and also had the chance to check out the fantastic beaches and sightseeing at Abel Tasman. What made this part of our trip so perfect, though, was our stay at the Foxes. Margaret was a superb hostess! The...

We arrived to find a Canadian flag flying in our honour. We loved every minute of our stay with Margaret Fox at The Foxes B&B.

I couldn't agree more with the reviews given for this wonderful B&B. Margaret and Horton (her trusty schnauzer) were wonderful hosts. The surroundings and views are breathtaking and the breakfasts everything you could ask for and more (homemade honey made from the neighbors beehives)! Our rooms were lovely (we were traveling with another couple) including our fresh fruit, sherry and...

What a wonderful surprise. When we decided to extend our stay in the Nelson area 'The Foxes' was recommended by local friends. And Margaret was good enough to take us as last minute guests. The Foxes is a luxury B&B set in beautiful gardens overlooking Ruby Bay. We were only able to stay two nights and, after long busy days...
