On arriving at fox glacier inn it appeared to be a really lovely place. I got the keys to my room and was pleasantly surprised to find a shower and toilet in the room. I met my two roommates shortly after who weren't exactly talkative so I got ready and went to the bar for some food and a well... More

The room was pretty small which is fine but the bed were so uncomfortable that we hardly slept. There was some bad stain on our blanket and sheets.The bathroom... More

Due to some last minute changes on our trip, we were forced to stay in Fox Glacier for an extra night and the Holiday Park where we stayed the first night didn't have any availability. So, we found Fox Glacier Inn, which was central and affordable (we stayed in a four-bed mix dorm) for about 56 NZD. The room was... More

The host was very accommodating and kept engaged with everyone making sure we were comfortable during our stay. Having a meal at their own bar/restaurant is a MUST. Their lamb shank meal and lamb burgers are to die for!!

It seems there are few hostels in town so there is not really much choice here. Fox Glacier Inn appeared a reasonable option so I booked it up for my two nights in Fox. I arrived around 5:30, after taking a 10 hour naked bus from Nelson in the morning, and checked in. I then picked up some food from... More

The Ensuite room we had cost $100.00 and was not clean no toiletries in the bathroom. The room amplified the noise from the room above which prevented us from sleeping the bed was more double than queen. No remote for the TV not that we watched TV. You can hear the occupants of the next rooms snoring through the walls.... More

The bar & restaurant is excellent, proving good food and warm atmosphere. The stuffs there are friendly, especially the manager. We enjoyed food very much. It was raining on the day we arrive. The room is dark and damp, with a little bit musty smell. There was a small built in table in the room, but no suitable chair. There... More

We were travelling by camper van and decided to treat ourselves to accomodation after our glacier hike. The beds were good and the inn had good facilities; laundry, a bar, restaurant, kitchen and it was a reasonable price. When I checked in I wasn't feeling well, I was told to go through to the bar and a member of staff... More
