We picked Fox over Franz (6 night stay) because we prefer less night life and more quite and thats what we got, the comforts of the hotel was an added bonus and the drive to Franz was only 30mins so we did the trip a couple of times to visit the hot springs & glacier. We had room 203, its...

The stay at Distinction Fox Glacier was a good experience more so for the Helli ride package of Mountain helicopter which covered fox glacier and mount cook. But to stay will recommend Franz Joseph as its nore happening with more choices for restaurants. If have some more free time can do the Hot pools and lake walk .

Place is clean and tidy and furniture is all relatively new. It's accomodation at basic level with no frills. Perhaps having just arrived from Queenstown where accomodation was top notch, this was disappointing . Bed room slippers were not provided, a shower which had a wild spray shooting out , and wifi access was poor. We were given a code...

A very clean room with a truly lovely bathroom (far nicer than expected) and a very comfortable bed. Fantastic food (one of our best dinners!) with excellent service. A very nice surprise indeed...I did giggle when I opened the drapes and noticed we overlooked a real dump.... But, if you looked up the mountains were beautiful.

We stayed here for one night recently and the Hotel had a lovely warm, inviting feeling to it..... Very much like home. It was a lovely stay, with great views (even out to the ocean!) We spent some down time chilling out in the "Lounge" area and there was plenty of games and books for reading......

We stayed here for one night during our tour of New Zealand. It felt really welcoming and had a lovely 'small hotel' feel. Our room was large, with a good bathroom and seating area. There was also a balcony but it was too cold to enjoy while we were there! Fox Glacier is tiny so it was close to all...

Excellently presented boutique hotel, in a prime tourist area where competition is stiff. Really enjoyed our one night stay here. Friendly staff and a wonderful breakfast. Would have loved to stay longer, maybe next time!
