We were here Mid March. Had no idea this unit was so spacious and luxurious - it had everything! The second floor loft was lovely. The first floor had a gas fireplace which not only gave the place its ambiance but actually heated the place as it was damp and rainy the two days we were there. The bathroom with...

Nice reception staff, you can park your campervan wherever you want, bathroom and kitchen are clean. Good location as it's close to fox glacier track and lake Matheson. Would recommend it to other travelers !

Stayed two nights there in March. A little small town built special to tour the Glaciers. All services as Helicopter trip. Bus trips and souvenirs. A few restaurants and one main street. Not much to do at night. One or 2 bars only. We had a 1 br suit. 1 room had 2 single beds and the family room had...

We stayed in an upstairs double room, the room was quiet big with a nice seating area and a view of the mountains. The bed was really comfortable and gave a good nights sleep. There...

A nice warm feel to this well appointed motel room with a second story mezzanine sleeping area. Great as the warm air rose to make the upper area very cosy. Even in February it gets rather chilly but the in room heating was very effective. The facilities were all we needed and a close walk to restaurants in the evening...

This was one of our most expensive stays in NZ. Great location in Fox right near Glacier, Lake Matheson, shops & restaurants but I didn't expect to pay so much & be in the middle of a camper van park. Our unit had an upstairs mezzanine bedroom & we thought we'd get a view of the mountains but we got...

After reading mixed reviews on Trip Advisor regarding this accommodation we were not sure what to expect, but it certainly exceeded our expectations. Debra was at the reception when we arrived and she was so friendly and informative. We had booked the bed and breakfast option and were shown to room number 5. Although the furnishings were a bit tired...
