Very comfortable room, with many extras, such as a chocolate waiting to tempt, plus that glass of wine waiting to be poured. How Jane finds time to service your room, offer changes of towels, give useful tourist advice, make fresh bread each day etc etc as well as feeding her family, the cat Irish and the collie and take such...

We just loved our two night stay at The White Fox. The room was excellent; the bed warm and comfortable; the welcoming bottle of wine was a fine final touch. As other contributors have commented upon, this is the only room to let in a terrific family home. Jane and Gary were excellent hosts aided by their two young daughters.... More

This is a lovely B&B or guest house on highway six as you drive into Fox Glacier. The whole place is a delight of great decor and cleanliness. The owner,Jane is very welcoming and even to the point of a couple of glasses of wine on arrival. Brilliant place to stop. I thoroughly recommend it.

My husband and I spent 2 nights with Gary and Jane and their lovely family in early November, 2013. They open their comfortable family home to visitors like us, and welcome them like family members, always striving (and succeeding!) to please. Both mornings we had a delicious breakfast, including freshly baked bread. Snacks are always available, which was a nice... More
