We travelled from Wanaka to Fox Glacier recently & we're pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms & bathrooms. The staff were very friendly & knowledgable when it came to booking our Glacier tour. Great laundry facilities, onsite safe parking & breakfast was excellent too. I'd highly recommend this hotel & the Glacier walks!

Stayed a couple of nights in July 2013 and absolutely loved the accomodation. Stayed with the family and the kids also loved it. The staff were so welcoming and helpful. The lounge and computer access wonderful, the breakfast just lovely.

Had a one night stay, and it was very pleasant. Rooms were modern, roomy, tidy, and clean. Service was excellent, warm, and friendly. Good value for money, couldn't ask for much more. Breakfast in the restaurant was basic but was very high quality.

We drove from Christchurch to Fox Glacier and had booked our accommodation here. What a wonderful place to stay! The manager was lovely, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and was a lovely spread! The manager was there to greet us and told us about the history of the area and recommended things to see on our way to Queenstown....

Unfortunately, we had little time to spend at this hotel - but after a long drive from Queenstown - it was a true pleasure to check in and find such a lovely place. The manager (owner?) was extremely warm and gracious when we checked in - the room was very new, nicely modern and very clean. Breakfast was truly excellent...

This hotel has recently been given a makeover. The large sitting room on the 1st floor is a nice touch and the staff are lovely and very helpful. It is clean, well appointed but bare. The rooms are simple. For NZ$390 per night, one expects more. We had tried to stay in some of the B&B's in the area but...
