We stayed at this hotel for 1 night and it was a great stay. Room was nice and clean with a great comfy bed. The owners were very attentive. We had a good breakfast too at the hotel. The hotel is few minutes drive from the city centre, but it is a very small town, so that shouldn't be a...

This is the second time we have stayed at this most comfortable hotel. The main reason we returned was for the warm greetings previously provided by the charming host Marlene & the excellent value for money..... both of which are still provided.

We chose this hotel as a location to visit both glaciers for what it is perfectly situated. The rooms were large enough even for 5 weeks worth of travelling gear as we had. The hosts were welcoming, helpful and charming. We ate in their restaurant several times and were always happy with the food's quality. Not a large menu but...

We spent 2 nights in Fox Glacier at this Hotel. The town is smaller that Franz Josef but still close enough, and we used it as a base to visit both. The hotel is comfortable and the attention by the owners is very good. It's not located in the town itself but close. We didn't have the opportunity to eat...

I don't ski, let's get that out of the way, and I stayed at this hotel during off-peak (no skiing) season. The hosts are very, very nice. My fiance and I had arrived very late in the evening after spending the whole day in the car driving to Fox Glacier. The host was kind enough to open up the bar...

We stayed one night. The restaurant was closed and we were recommended to go out to a restaurant for dinner. We were traveling with my old parents and unfortunately, my father got sick at night. The host was very helpful and we got a registered nurse visited to the hotel and we managed to move to the next location. Without...

I stayed here for 3 nights in April. I picked Fox over Franz Josef as a quieter option. It was that. One thing to note when coming to the glaciers - the weather changes quickly so you may not get to do everything if you only stay 1 night. I was cancelled a lot on the heli-hikes because of clouds....

This hotel is located just outside of the centre of Fox Glacier which is ideal if you want a slightly quieter location as we did. The rooms are comfortable and there is a restaurant on site that overlooks the mountains. The host is a qualified chef, and the food was outstanding, and the staff extremely friendly with a huge amount...

We stayed for two nights, the owners were very helpful. Breakfast and evening meals were excellent, nothing was too much trouble.
