We stayed here for one night recently and the Hotel had a lovely warm, inviting feeling to it..... Very much like home. It was a lovely stay, with great views (even out to the ocean!) We spent some down time chilling out in the "Lounge" area and there was plenty of games and books for reading......

We stayed here for one night during our tour of New Zealand. It felt really welcoming and had a lovely 'small hotel' feel. Our room was large, with a good bathroom and seating area. There was also a balcony but it was too cold to enjoy while we were there! Fox Glacier is tiny so it was close to all...

Excellently presented boutique hotel, in a prime tourist area where competition is stiff. Really enjoyed our one night stay here. Friendly staff and a wonderful breakfast. Would have loved to stay longer, maybe next time!

Our family of 4 stayed one night. Very, very helpful and friendly management and staff. The rooms were lovely -- the bathrooms in particular were beautiful. The rooms were generous in size, clean, comfortable. Beginning with helpful information and tips on local restaurants, the staff were welcoming friendly and wonderful, right from the moment of checkin. One member of staff...

Charming stay. We were due to stay 2 nights on a self drive tour of NZ and actually cancelled the first night to stay longer in Queenstown, thinking there wasn't much to do up at Fox but as soon as we arrived at the hotel we realised 2 nights would have been better just to sit and chill in front...

We stayed here for a night in Feb 2013. When we booked in, we wished we'd bypassed Haast the night before and spent two nights here instead!. The staff were lovely and friendly and the room was one of the nicest we had in our month travelling around NZ. The breakfast was included in the price and was very nice....

We travelled from Wanaka to Fox Glacier recently & we're pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms & bathrooms. The staff were very friendly & knowledgable when it came to booking our Glacier tour. Great laundry facilities, onsite safe parking & breakfast was excellent too. I'd highly recommend this hotel & the Glacier walks!

Stayed a couple of nights in July 2013 and absolutely loved the accomodation. Stayed with the family and the kids also loved it. The staff were so welcoming and helpful. The lounge and computer access wonderful, the breakfast just lovely.

Had a one night stay, and it was very pleasant. Rooms were modern, roomy, tidy, and clean. Service was excellent, warm, and friendly. Good value for money, couldn't ask for much more. Breakfast in the restaurant was basic but was very high quality.
