    First place on R when coming from the south. Receptionist was full of helpful info. Ask about seeing the glowworms a 2 min walk from the hotel. One of the highlights of our fox Glacier trip. Clean, quiet.

    All our rooms have built in heating and a ventilation system to keep the air fresh. The rooms are also double glazed which keeps them quiet and warm. We hope to see you in Fox Glacier soon.
