We had an over-night here at Fox Glacier. The Te Weheka was basically a very comfortable motel. None of the personal touches of a B & B. I did not find the front desk very helpful. Breakfast was average, but OK. We did not go to the glacier, as we had seen some in Alaska and Canada. The restaurant was... More

we spent 2 nights here in june as part of our whistle stop tour of the south islands delights. As it happened we were the only guests there for the 2 nights. Our room was lovely, clean and warm. The lady who was there was fantastic and despite us being the only guests she provided full breakfast facilities, with nothing... More

Excellent hotel with a comfortable room furnished with great colour style. Reception were extremely helpful in assisting us to access free Wifi from Zembu and in recommending a good restaurant for a special birthday occasion. Reception also looked after our laundry when we went out for the day

This small and friendly place in Fox Glacier has all you could wish for, its like a motel that is run like a boutique hotel. Expect personal service, a selection DVD's and music in the room, cosy little restaurant with great food.

Way way overpriced but a very acceptable motel. Not sure how they get away with calling themselves a hotel when they offer none of the amenities, service or environment of a hotel. Breakfast was great and the service at the front desk friendly and helpful. More than 2 rock hard pillows and a sagging bed would help to swallow the... More

Located centrally for all Fox Glacier facilities, a very friendly welcome, helpful staff, and modern stylish accommodation with plenty of space. Excellent cooked/buffet breakfast and attentive service. Would stay again.

We travelled by car from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South and stayed in many Hotels along the way. This Hotel was by far the best. The staff went out of their way to advise us how best to enjoy this scenic area, even giving us a discount, and booking, our helicopter to Mt... More

We stayed here as part of an upscale, small-group tour of both Islands. It was typical of the smallish, boutique, service-oriented hotels that we encountered. It was clean and comfortable, and management and staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. It is located pretty much by itself, but not far from what this small town offers.... More

One of several hotels / motels on SH6, we were glad to have booked well in advance as most establishments had No Vacancies. DFG/TWBH was a delight, good wifi, fabulous long bath, HUGE towels, stunning views, great breakfast (one of the best cookeds we've had in NZ so far), extremely reasonable laundry room, charming décor, great location.

We recently had a very comfortable stay at Te Weheka. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. We found the room to be spacious, quiet, finished well and extras thoughtfully provided. Breakfast was great and the best one we had during our week long trip around the South Island.
