Very comfortable room, with many extras, such as a chocolate waiting to tempt, plus that glass of wine waiting to be poured. How Jane finds time to service your room, offer changes of towels, give useful tourist advice, make fresh bread each day etc etc as well as feeding her family, the cat Irish and the collie and take such...

We just loved our two night stay at The White Fox. The room was excellent; the bed warm and comfortable; the welcoming bottle of wine was a fine final touch. As other contributors have commented upon, this is the only room to let in a terrific family home. Jane and Gary were excellent hosts aided by their two young daughters....

This is a lovely B&B or guest house on highway six as you drive into Fox Glacier. The whole place is a delight of great decor and cleanliness. The owner,Jane is very welcoming and even to the point of a couple of glasses of wine on arrival. Brilliant place to stop. I thoroughly recommend it.

The White Fox Bed and Breakfast is a lovely place to stay. The hosts were so sweet and welcoming. Our room was clean and very comfortable. We were free to help ourselves to tea, coffee and snacks. They have wonderful children and a cat and a dog. Jane was especially helpful in helping us choose a place for dinner and...

We stayed as a couple in February this year and had such a fantastic time in Fox Glacier. Jane and Gary couldn't have been more helpful and we felt very welcomed into the home. Our bedroom was large and extremely comfortable and we were able to come and go as we pleased. Thoroughly enjoyed having the animals around as we...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in March, as we explored the Fox Glacier region. Jane and the girls made us most welcome (Gary was away the first night) and we felt very comfortable with being in their area of the house. Breakfast was great with a choice of cooked eggs, bacon, toast and cereals. The room...

My husband and I spent 2 nights with Gary and Jane and their lovely family in early November, 2013. They open their comfortable family home to visitors like us, and welcome them like family members, always striving (and succeeding!) to please. Both mornings we had a delicious breakfast, including freshly baked bread. Snacks are always available, which was a nice...

Jane and Gary offer a nice room with en suite bathroom in their pleasant family home. You soon feel part of the lovely family. They gave us a lot of insight into life in this remote area, very useful information about things to do and see and even arranged a special rate for a helicopter flight for us. We loved...
