Trish and Colin were the perfect hosts. By the end of our two day stay we felt like family and it made us wish we had spent more time in Fox Glacier. Trish will give sound advice and puts on a, great breakfast. Can't wait to go back to the south island again....and stay at Ropatini's

Stayed here for 2 nights. Loved the atmosphere warmth of the place. Collin and Trish are wonderful hosts. Do check out their pets- chickens and a lamb (really lovely). A great experience staying and having their B & B. Their rooms are cosy and nice with lovely heaters and an electric blanket that will keep you warm during winter. Will... More

Collin and Trish were awesome hosts. They made us feel comfortable and "at home". The food was spectacular and abundant! Don't plan on losing weight while on your stay. The rooms were very well appointed. I have traveled extensively around the world, I have stayed at fancier places, but I have never stayed at a place that made me feel... More

I stayed at Ropatini's for a night in January of 2014, while making my way further south. Trish and Collin were wonderful hosts and made sure I was comfortable and well looked after. I've been to NZ twice now, and have stayed at multiple B&Bs, and theirs stand out because the owners are so nice and accommodating. The room was... More

Fox Glacier was my base on the month long trip to South Island as my son is working as a Guide on the Glacier. I was very wary leaving my 'Bear Grylls' type son to sort me out a place to stay.... I like a comfy bed, he sleeps in ice caves. However.... my faith is restored! On my 4700km... More

Our stay at Ropatini's was very memorable! Excellent help and advice on what to do. Breakfast was great and the shower was fantastic. Collin and Trish are very welcoming and interesting to talk to. The view was absolutely gorgeous, looking out at the mountains. I got to feed the chickens, collect the eggs and walk the sheep! What more could... More

Ropatini's was one of the highlights of our 5-week, around-the-world trip. Collin and Trish could not be more inviting, conversational, creative, fun or helpful. The furnishings were superb and many handmade by Collin. Trish is a culinary queen beyond compare. The spirit after feasting was high enough one night to prompt vocal solos. Collin and Trish please come stay with... More

Do not overlook this jewel of accommodation in Fox Glacier amongst the many motel and hotel signs . The setting is idyllic, with views of the peaks of Mount Cook, Tasman and Fox. Colin and Trish are friendly, welcoming and highly talented hosts, touch Colin's table and wood carvings and sample Trish's 'award winning' eggs for breakfast. Rospitinis is perfectly... More

We stayed in a garden studio room for I night including dinner & breakfast. I thought the accommodation was delightful. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom huge with a lovely wet room shower. The views from the window at the front magnificent. They also have a pet lamb who is very vocal & entertaining. Both Colin & Trish couldn't have... More
