Clean and modern villas. Warm, comfortable, good parking space outside villa. An amazing view form front door. Great location for Franz Josef and Fox Glacier. Friendly and helpful reception. Local knowledge and help with rescheduling one of our tours was a great bonus.

Our stay at Glenfern was beyond our expectations. The room was large,comfortable and had all that you would expect of a four star property. While sipping your wine, whether it be sitting inside looking out the glass doors or sitting on your own patio, that view of the mountains is something that will stay with you for a long time. The grounds are well kept and attractive. The host who welcomed us was friendly and also helpful in recommending dinner options. (I gotta admit, I was like a kid out there feeding the Alpacas)! The location would be a great place to base out of for a few days while exploring all there is do do around here. Unless your backpacking you will need a car as it's a ways into town. You just can't go wrong staying at Glenfern!

Hi LLW444, The housekeepers do a great job keeping the standards up, so that you can enjoy that odd glass or three while checking out the mountainside.

Absolutely fantastic. Booked through Booking.com. Excellent value for money. $275 for 4 of us with single/separate beds. Brilliant. Excellently appointed. Free WiFi. Very, very helpful staff - no problems when we advised our sailing to South Island had been cancelled; they have a late arrival facility. Cannot rate it highly enough. Fabulous.

Room Tip: Booked through Booking.com Excellent deals and value for moey

We really enjoyed our stay at Glenfern. As others have mentioned, the villas are very comfortable and well equipped. Ours had great views of the glacier. Staff are particularly helpful, relaxed and friendly.
