This was a nice place with friendly hosts. I thought it would higher end. You get your own little cottage. Basic accommodations. Beds fine. Continental breakfast. It is in the touristy town of Fox Glacier. Not many reasonably priced, nice places to stay there. I booked in fairly late for late summer so I didn't have much choice of where...

What a gem of a place. Fantastic hosts, Trish and Colin were very friendly and helpful and there was a wonderful breakfast (freshly laid eggs and homemade bread) with the family at a table made by Colin inset with fascinating items (such as gold and jade) all of which had an interesting tale to go with them. The accommodation was...

Great location for the town and the Glacier experience. We stayed in a garden room, which was well up to the standard expected. A great breakfast and friendly hosts meant that our disappointment with the cancelled helicopter trip and poor weather was not so bad after all! Just felt that the accommodation was on the pricey side compared to the...

We had a very pleasant stay at this place. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Good bed, high water pressure in the shower, quiet, easy parking, walking distance from center and the lake. Breakfast is extensive. One note: the owners might join you for breakfast, so if you're keen on your privacy, be aware. I'm not such a sociable person...

The place that make fox glacier meaningful on the raining day. Warm welcome. The owner is very kind. She showed me around her house with include chickens, sheep, many kinds of flower, and told me a lot of stories. Room is spacious and clean. One problem is no kitchen, but it's included homemade breakfast.

When we arrived at this homestay, we were greeted by a lot of free range chicken and the hosts, a very nice lady who takes care of the small farm, and her super friendly husband who is carving whole trees into beautiful tables (on one of them you have your breakfast setted, small ones are in the bathrooms of the...

Welcoming, clean and well maintained, this is a piece of the country (complete with chickens and sheep) with a chance of your own space. We had three in a room and there was still space for our bags and to move ... a rarity for some spaces allocated for three. Would recommend.

Driving in we thought it might be a bit quirky... But we were incredibly happy with everything.. The room was clean and very comfortable as well as quite private. Colin and Trish welcomed us as if we were family and over the 2 days we stated we felt quite taken care of. Thank you Trish and Colin... We had a...

The view from the breakfast table is enough to make you come back time and again. The host makes her own bread and pastries and is incredibly helpful with excursion planning and ideas. The rooms are clean and basic. We would go definitely go back if in the area.

We stayed one night in March of 2016. Colin and Trish were outstanding hosts. We arrived late in the afternoon after a long day of driving from Te Anau. Colin was coming into the yard and showed us where to park. Check in was very informal, but Trish immediately offered coffee or tea refreshments. It had been a long day...
