We stayed there 2 nights during Jan 2015. Not being aware that NZ hotels typical check-out time is 10 AM (most countries have 12 PM with friendly extension upon request, if possible), I came to reception desk for a few inquiries, somewhat after 10 AM, while my wife was packing. We were informed at Reception that we should leave right...

We stayed here two nights after a mix up with our hotel in Franz Josef. The hotel was a little old, but was clean and comfortable. Parking was a bit limited but there was a lot across the street that was available. There was free wifi which was very nice and the hotel was walking distance from the town center...

On the whole not too bad, very dated, leaky gutter and as it rained one of the nights we were there the constant dripping kept us awake. Staff a bit indifferent. Didn't use bar or restaurant so cannot comment. Have stayed in better for less money

The property was nice upon arrival and the grounds are well kept and inviting. The rooms are spacious and offer room for two or there to sleep. The bathroom door though on its sliding mechanism was cumbersome at best. It can be tricky for families or if you have to go in a hurry. In this day in age, having...

First impression, the room was cold and only had the old radiator heater as heating otherwise freeze to death!! Room needs renovating and guests should have an option for cooking facilities. The TV only had three channels yes!! Three channels. Lastly the bathroom was rather to small for the larger guests (no offense intended) and the old school dial shower...

We stayed two nights here. The room was clean and nice, and the service was good. Location is very convenient to restaurants and stores. I had trouble sleeping because of noise from the street and nearby bars. Also honking horns. This was made worse because it was hot and the hotel is not air conditioned so we had to leave...

We checked out late in the morning (around 11.30) and they asked us to pay a surcharge. We explained that nobody informed us at the check in about those strict conditions but it did not help. Not good souvenir.

Where do we start! Possibly the worst room we have ever stayed in. The room was desperately in need of decorating and refurbishing not to mention a darn good clean! We put our bags on the spare bed as the carpet was none to clean. The 'shower' was pathetic - a good watering can is better! The toilet bowl was...

Good central location and looked OK from the street but once past reception the atmosphere was bleak and dark. Room was tired and delapidated - peeling paint, black toilet bowl - generally depressing.With the bathroom door shut the toilet was still visible from the main room Onsite parking was confusing and inadequate for a hotel with so many rooms.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Heartland Hotel Glacier Country is privileged to be located within a unique world heritage area. The internationally recognised Westland World Heritage Park encompasses 2.6 million hectares of spectacular wilderness, including the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. Heartland Hotel Glacier Country is just five minutes drive from Fox Glacier. Located in Fox Glacier village, this recently refurbished three-star plus hotel is the ideal place to stay if you are here to see this remarkable attraction - we are just three kilometres from the glacier car park. A multi-million dollar upgrade was completed in October 2016 that included all 51 guest rooms and ensuites, restaurant, bar and reception area. The design scheme for this hotel drew inspiration from the local West Coast environs in creating an effective and cheerful hotel upgrade. The exterior décor and light internal refurbishment brings a fresh new look to the property and creates a consistent feel throughout. Heartland Hotel Glacier Country looks forward to welcoming you to this very special corner of the world. ... more   less
