We were warmly welcomed by Deborah who offered a large umbrella and torch to show us the way to the Glow worms. The 2 bedroom unit had a view of the mountain, was clean and with comfy bed. We could hear the guests in the unit next to us, but did not prevent us from a good sleep. 5 minute...

This small hotel is a bit quirky but a great place to stay in the tiny town of Fox Glacier. Location is very close to the DoC information centre and the selection of very good cafes and restaurants. The accommodation is excellent. Warm. Gracious. And ready for your backpacks, boots, and gear. The breakfast is excellent with breads and muffins,...

Very quiet and peaceful. Great host. The ceiling skylight was a bit of a nuisance because a security light shone through it all night. Otherwise it was great, close to restaurants. Woke up to NZ birdsong.

Rich breakfast combination available in room - nice setup - brownish (but clean) water in spa bath immediately reminds of mountain environment - efficient check-in and check-out - no problem to find a parking spot in the immediate vicinity of the room

Good value for money, close to everything you need. A short walk to restaurants and the glow worms walk. The owners were helpful and friendly and the shower rooms, though fewer than needed, in an off season visit were clean and nice. Would highly recommend.

We stayed in a Mezzanine studio, good space for 2. Nice spa and toiletries. Easy walk to town and cafe's. Lovely host. Walls were very thin though, can hear voices if your neighbors are talking next door, but we were lucky to have good neighbors so no problems for us.

Very welcoming and friendly, and staff assisted us to organise a helicopter flight to Fox Glacier. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The unit was very comfortable and clean, with a spacious bathroom - everything we required. We thoroughly recommend it.

Room was neat and clean, nice and big room. Lodge is a great location to the town/ shops (everything is walking distance) We were provided with a great breakfast in the B&B lodge, with the owner had gone above and beyond of what is expected for breakfast. Wifi is free and provided however from our room it kept dropping out....
